Rumors about this unofficial project refer to Watt’s fake working title “Grammar Rodeo” as a 1996 episode of The Simpsons where Bart and his buddies stole a rental car and went on spring break instead of school events. Not many additional plot details have surfaced other than that it is supposed to have a Spielberg tone with a nostalgic ’80s vibe.

The Lucasfilm team has added a bit more information beyond the new title, adding that the story will be set in the New Republic era like Ahsoka and The Mandalorian and will center around several children lost and left to fend for themselves in Star Wars. “The galaxy is trying to return home.

“It’s got four kids on it, but it’s not a kids show,” Watts explained at an event in California.

Star Wars: The Skeleton Team begins filming this summer, with The Mandalorian’s dynamic duo Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni serving as executive producers.
