Favreau's 'Star Wars' Series Will Be Post-Return Pre-Awakens

May look like Jungle Book

A few months ago, it was announced that Jon Favreau would be writing and producing a new live-action Star Wars series, most likely for Disney's upcoming streaming service. No much is know about this series, but a couple of tidbits were revealed at the Solo: A Star Wars Story premiere. Favreau, who is voicing alien Rio Durant in Solo and did some quick interviews on the carpet before the premiere.

During one of those interviews, Favreau revealed that his new Star Wars series would take place seven years after Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (eleven years after A New Hope). This places it about twenty-three years before Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Favreau also said that the series would feature all-new characters and would employ "cutting edge" technology like what he used when directing the live-action The Jungle Book movie.

At the point the series starts, there is a good chance The First Order has at least started to form, but before The Resistance formed, which was likely just a half dozen years before The Force Awakens. We don't know if it would involve The First Order or have some other theme, we'll have to await more information. Of course, we'll bring that to you when we find out. No release date for the series has been announced.

 

UPDATE/CORRECTION:

The series will take place around 3 years after Return of the Jedi, 7 years after the Battle of Yavin in a New Hope.
