Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau has signed on to executive produce and write a live-action Star Wars series for Disney's new direct-to-consumer platform.
This is Favreau's latest project in Disney's expansive empire.
The new lands are scheduled to open at both Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disneyland Park in 2019.
"It's unlike anything that exists today", Bob Chapek, chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts said past year, "From the second you arrive, you will become a part of a Star Wars story. I cant wait to embark upon this exciting adventure", Favreau said in a statement.
Lucky attendees of Disney's 2018 Annual Shareholders Meeting today were treated to a behind the scenes video of the next film in the Star Wars saga, Solo: A Star Wars Story.
