In a now-deleted Instagram post, stunt coordinator George Cottle confirmed that production on Lucasfilm’s upcoming Disney+ series Star Wars: The Skeleton Crew has finally been completed. The upcoming sci-fi drama is expected to make its debut sometime this year.
“It’s a wrap Skeleton Crew!” Cottle wrote on Instagram (via Deadline). “Once again I was lucky enough to be surrounded by some of the most amazing stunt performers I have ever worked with! I feel so lucky to work with you all! Thanks for all your hard work and dedication! So excited for this one!”
Further confirmation of the ending was an Instagram story by stunt performer Juliana Potter. “Gonna miss my Star Wars: The Skeleton Crew stunt family. So grateful,” Potter wrote. “Can’t wait for the world to see what’s in store.”
Star Wars: The Skeleton Crew is created and executive produced by Jon Watts and writer Christopher Ford, who have previously worked together on Spider-Man: Homecoming. Led by Oscar nominee Jude Law, the series will take place during the events of Return of the Jedi. Inspired by the classic Amblin films from the 80s, the project previously had the working title Grammar Rodeowhich is a nod to a Simpsons episode where Bart runs away for a week with a stolen car.
The series is also executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni and Kathleen Kennedy. Law will be joined by a young cast of children between the ages of 11 and 12. There are currently no announcements about the identity of the rest of the main cast.
Except Skeleton Crew, Watts is also currently on another high-profile film in the form of an untitled thriller starring Oscar winners George Clooney and Brad Pitt. He is also set to produce the sixth installment of Final destination for HBO Max.
