As Disney prepares to launch its streaming service next year, Jon Favreau’s live-action Star Wars series has certainly generated a good deal of buzz. Said to take place between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens (that’s 7 ABY to you and me), the series will have every opportunity to bridge the gap from the Rebellion to the Resistance and from the Empire to the First Order. Favreau, who is writing, producing and starring in the series as an “important alien character”, is going to have his hands full and has been busy assembling his production and design team to begin preparing to bring this all-new time period to life. We can confirm that Favreau has enlisted the help of veteran Star Wars artist Doug Chiang and Andrew L. Jones, with whom he worked on The Jungle Book, to create the look for the series.
Chiang, who recently served as the production designer on Rogue One, has also done concept and design work on The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and The Force Awakens, giving him some unique insight into the pre-existing design of the Star Wars universe. In addition to working with Favreau on The Jungle Book, Jones has worked as the art director on Avatar, Green Lantern, Oz the Great and Powerful and Alice in Wonderland and also worked as an assistant art director on Beowulf, meaning he’ll have plenty of experience working with CG characters which will certainly feature prominently in the series.
The series, which is expected to feature all new characters and debut sometime in the Fall of 2019, should be moving along more steadily as we approach summer. We will continue to update this story as information becomes available.
