“Everything Everywhere All At Once” Filmmakers the Daniels Working on “Star Wars” Series “Skeleton Crew”
The Daniels are headed to a galaxy far, far away.
Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, the Oscar-winning writing and directing duo of Everything Everywhere All At Once , affectionately known as the Daniels, are working on the Disney+ Star Wars series Skeleton Crew.
The Hollywood Reporter scoops that the Daniels are involved in the upcoming live-action series, which began filming last summer and wrapped recently. Little is known about the project, including just how many episodes the Daniels directed. What is known about Skeleton Crew is that the series stars Jude Law and comes from Jon Watts, directing of the Tom Holland-led Spider-Man trilogy for Sony. Two steady Star Wars hands are also behind the project—The Mandalorian‘s Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni.
We also know that the storyline is centered on a group of kids who are lost somewhere in the galaxy and are trying to find their way home. The series is set during the New Republic Era, and it will join a slew of upcoming Star Wars series, including Ahsoka, starring Rosario Dawson as the titular character, and The Acolyte, starring Amanda Stenberg as a student studying the Dark Side of the Force under a Sith Lord. The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Andor have all paved the way for the expanding Star Wars universe on Disney’s streamer. The Mandalorian season three is currently streaming on Disney+, and Ahoska is expected to premiere later this year.
The Daniels are riding galactically high themselves after winning three Oscars for Everything Everywhere All At Once; Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Picture. The film won seven in total, including Best Actress for Michelle Yeoh and Best Supporting Actor for Ke Huy Quan.
