Jon Favreau to Pen New Star Wars Live-Action Series
Lucasfilm has announced that they will be working alongside Jon Favreau for a new live-action Star Wars series. The series, for which Favreau will be a writer, will be part of Disney's new direct-to-consumer platform.
"If you told me at 11 years old that I would be getting to tell stories in the Star Wars universe, I wouldn't have believed you. I can't wait to embark upon this exciting adventure", said Favreau.
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said, "I couldn't be more excited about Jon coming on board to produce and write for the new direct-to-consumer platform. Jon brings the perfect mix of producing and writing talent, combined with a fluency in the Star Wars universe. This series will allow Jon the chance to work with a diverse group of writers and directors and give Lucasfilm the opportunity to build a robust talent base."
Favreau has already been a part of the Star Wars franchise, having roles in both Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series and Solo: A Star Wars Story. He has also been a part of the Disney/Marvel family, directing Iron Man and Iron Man 2 and executive producing Iron Man and Avengers.
