The Star Wars Rebels animated series has just ended, but the machine will not stop. Lucasfilm announced this morning that director, producer, and writer Jon Favreau will executive produce and write a new live-action Star Wars series. Genre fans will probably remember Favreau most for directing the first Iron Man movie and appearing as Happy Hogan in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Favreau also has Star Wars ties, voicing the Mandalorian Death Watch leader Pre Vizsla in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series, and is set to voice an alien (Rio Durant?) in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story  movie.

No real details were provided about the series. We do know that a live-action series has been in development hell for a long time. We don't know if the concepts from the scrapped Star Wars Underworld series will be the inspiration for the new series, but it is possible. It does look like the new series will be for the Disney  streaming service, from what Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said welcoming Favreau:

"I couldn't be more excited about Jon coming on board to produce and write for the new direct-to-consumer platform"


No target date was announced for the debut of this new series.
