Fresh off seeing their film Everything Everywhere All at Once score big at the 2023 Academy Awards, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, aka the Daniels, have signed on the direct an episode of the Star Wars streaming series Skeleton Crew.
Skeleton Crew, starring Jude Law, will be set during the New Republic era, the same time frame as The Mandalorian, Ashoka and The Book of Boba Fett. The show wrapped filming several months ago, meaning the directing duo has been on board for some time and the news is only making the rounds now, perhaps conveniently after they were awarded the Oscar for Best Director.
With Star Wars Celebration 2023 coming up in London in April, it’s possible that some footage of Skeleton Crew may be on the way and the Daniels could be on hand. Also of note is that now that the pair is in with Disney, this will only increase the online push to see the directors helm Avengers: Secret Wars. Disney loves its corporate synergy, after all.
