Jon Favreau appointed as writer/producer on Star Wars show

By Alex Wiggan

Jon Favreau is to write and produce a live-action Star Wars movie.

Speaking to Star, 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.”

She added: “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 said: “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.”

The live-action series is yet to have a release date or title. More details as they emerge.
