Lucasfilms Vice President Lynwen Brennan revealed in January that “Skeleton Crew” is in production in Los Angeles, though if the show is expected to release this year, it hasn’t been announced yet. No other directors have been announced at this time, though it wouldn’t be a surprise if Watts directed some as well. Further announcements related to “Skeleton Crew” and other “Star Wars” projects are expected at this year’s Star Wars Celebration, which is taking place in London beginning on April 7, 2023.

While the Oscar winner to “Star Wars” director pipeline may seem unorthodox, Daniels aren’t the first people to do it recently: Taika Waititi is also working on a project for the long-running franchise, which was announced soon after his Oscar win for “Jojo Rabbit.” For their part, Daniels capped off a successful award season with a thrilling night at the 95th Academy Awards earlier this month, taking home the trophies for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay. The movie won seven Oscars total, with the rest recognizing editing and the film’s talented cast. Daniels also have a comedy pilot, “Mason,” in the works with A24.

“Skeleton Crew” does not yet have a release date.
