Star Wars: Skeleton Crew Season 1 to Consist of Eight Episodes
Star Wars: Skeleton Crew, an upcoming television series set in the Star Wars universe, will have a first season comprising eight episodes, according to a listing on the WGA website. This episode count aligns with other successful Star Wars shows such as The Mandalorian, Ahsoka, and The Acolyte.
Skeleton Crew follows a group of young individuals navigating their way home, reminiscent of the adventure film Goonies set in the Star Wars universe. The series features acclaimed actor Jude Law in a significant, yet undisclosed role. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy expressed her excitement for the project, highlighting its origin as a passion project pitched by director Jon Watts.
While some fans speculated about potential appearances of Skeleton Crew characters in the ongoing season of Star Wars: The Mandalorian, reports suggest that no such crossover has occurred.

Jon Favreau, showrunner of The Mandalorian, emphasized the expansion of the Star Wars universe through projects like Skeleton Crew, praising the creativity and contributions of various filmmakers. The show aims to capture the adventurous spirit of classic Star Wars with its visual effects, puppets, costumes, and new characters, offering a cohesive narrative experience.
The article concludes by mentioning that Star Wars: Skeleton Crew is set to premiere on Disney+ at a later date, encouraging readers to explore the streaming platform if they haven’t already.
