Director Jon Watts Confirmed to Have Created a New Upcoming STAR WARS Series For Disney+

Just a couple weeks ago it was reported how director Jon Watts was no longer to helm the Marvel Cinematic Universe reboot of FANTASTIC FOUR. For his departure he cited he needed to step away and take a break from big blockbuster films after successfully putting out three Spider-Man movies for the unique partnership between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios.

Well, now we have learned from a new Vanity Fair story that Watts has created and will be the creator and executive producer for a brand new Disney+ Star Wars series that is currently untitled. 

But here's some information about his newly revealed series from Vanity Fair:

"Another new series on the horizon doesn’t even have a title, just a code name: Grammar Rodeo, a reference to an episode of The Simpsons in which Bart and his schoolmates steal a car and run away for a week, using a phony educational event as an alibi. The show takes place during the post–Return of the Jedi reconstruction that follows the fall of the Empire, the same as The Mandalorian, but its plot remains a secret. It’s created and executive-produced by director Jon Watts and writer Chris Ford, who made Spider-Man: Homecoming for Marvel. A casting notice has called for four children, around 11 to 12 years old. Inside Lucasfilm, the show is being described as a galactic version of classic Amblin coming-of-age adventure films of the ’80s."

No further info has been provided beyond this, but is is interesting to hear that Watts will indeed be taking a trip to a galaxy far, far away.
