Jude Law is making his Star Wars debut in Jon Watts’ upcoming spin-off series Skeleton Crew.

Fans are already buzzing because Obi-Wan Kenobi Day is finally here, but Disney’s Star Wars Celebration has already given fans of a galaxy far, far away glimpses of several upcoming projects including the third season of The Mandalorian, plus Andor and Ahsoka.

Director Watts joined The Mandalorian co-creators Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni on stage on the convention’s opening day alongside writer Christopher Ford.

Though they did not give away much about Skeleton Crew, they confirmed that Law would star in the Disney+ series, which is set around a similar time to Favreau and Filoni’s show.

Watts did reveal it follows the story of a group of children from a small planet who get lost in the Star Wars galaxy and must attempt to get home.

Pre-production has started and shooting begins soon, with the series scheduled to air next year.

Meanwhile, a short trailer for The Mandalorian series three starring Pedro Pascal showed the eponymous character and Grogu reunite and travel to Mandalore to be ‘forgiven for my transgressions’.

Favreau revealed the series will premiere in February of next year, and he apologised to fans, saying ‘over the last few years it’s been rough’ for Disney.

He also introduced a surprise installation, The Mandalorian Experience, which would be available to convention-goers over the weekend, featuring props and costumes from the show.

Fans were also treated to a trailer for Andor, which tells the origin story of rebel fighter Cassian Andor, played by Diego Luna and is set five years before the events of Rogue One, with 12 episodes already filmed and another 12 in production.

Appearing on stage, Luna excitedly told fans: ‘It feels amazing. When I was doing the film, I was living every day as if it was the last, I didn’t know it was possible.

‘Everything feels different because it’s been a long time…but everything is possible… The beauty of this show is that there is no way they’ll kill me.’

Other Andor cast members will include Killing Eve’s Fiona Shaw and Stellan Skarsgard.

As well as Star Wars spin-offs, audience members were shown a trailer for a new Willow mini-series, which sees Warwick Davies reprise his role as the aspiring sorcerer from the 1988 film of the same name.
