New Star Wars TV Show WRITER / PRODUCER ANNOUNCED!!
The official Star Wars website conformed today that we will be getting an all new, live action TV show. It will be written and produced by Jon Favreau who has previously worked on the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series and Solo: A Star Wars Story, although he’s probably known best as the producer of 2008’s Iron Man movie.
In an interview with starwars.com, Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy he had this to say…
“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.”
Jon Favreau himself added…
“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.”
Although the Star Wars live action TV show has no title or airing date as yet, it’s still great news to know we are getting a show at last.
Check out today’s Star Wars Theory video for my take on the news…

It would be interesting to find out what everyone is thinking right now after the negative reception of The Last Jedi by a lot of people. Don’t forget, you can catch up with tons more Star Wars videos over at the YouTube channel and stay tuned for more news on the show as I get it.
