Jude Law is a phenomenally talented actor, to some he is known as the heartthrob at the center of the Christmas classic Vacations, to others, he’s known as an evil Kree warrior standing in the way of Brie Larson in Captain Marvel. But now, Jude Law is making a remarkable comeback in the world of major franchises with several reports stating that the actor will be making his debut in a series set a long time ago, in a galaxy, far, far away. To clarify, Law will star in the new Disney+ series Star Wars: Skeleton Crew.

The news came along with several other galactic announcements from Anaheim’s Star Wars Celebration. Jude Law Star Wars: Skeleton Crew will bow out next year; the show is created by Spider-Man: No Coming Home director Jon Watts and Star Wars renaissance men Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau will serve as executive producers. star wars even gave fans a preview of the show’s logo, as well as a smoldering portrait of star Jude Law via an official social media announcement, which you can see below.

Variety reported earlier this month that Jon Watts had a star wars adventure in works reminiscent of 1980s coming-of-age films and which Watts brought the show (set after the events of Return of the Jedi) to life with writer Christopher Ford. Following today’s announcement, Watts revealed a little more about what fans can expect from the Jude Law-led series, in a quote via Deadlinethe show’s creator said that Star Wars: Skeleton Crew was on point; “A group of about ten-year-old kids who get lost in the Star Wars universe -” It features four kids but it’s not a kids’ show.

Not much more is known about the series at this time, which marks another major franchise cornered by Jude Law after Marvel and Harry Potter, the latter seeing Law’s star as the iconic Albus Dumbledore. However, we know that this is not the only star wars show coming to Disney+ next year. The Star Wars celebration has been full of announcements and among them is the third season of The Mandolorian will arrive in February, as well as Ashoka coming next year as well. Not only that, but fans got a glimpse of the upcoming Andor series that will begin on August 31.

Jude Law certainly picked the right time to jump aboard the Star Wars bandwagon. As today’s announcements show, all systems are going to a galaxy far, far away with several Disney+ tie-in series in the works. For star wars fans, the combination of Jude Law, a veteran actor with charm and talent, Jon Watts, the man responsible for doing everything Spider Man fan wishes come true, and a dramatic 80s premise, the prospect of Star Wars: Skeleton Crew seems unabashedly exciting. And for those who can’t wait for the show to air in 2023 with Ashoka and the third season of The Mandolorian, Friday Obi Wan Kenobi is surely early enough to whet the appetite.
