Jon Watts to Create Coming-of-Age 'Star Wars' Series for Disney+

Disney+ has today given a series order to an original drama series set in the Star Wars universe and created by the Spider-Man trilogy director Jon Watts.

Details on the new series are mostly being kept under wraps. However, it will be set closely after the events of Return of the Jedi - similar to the timeframe in The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. The tone will resemble a classic Amblin coming-of-age adventure film of the 1980s.

Watts will executive produce with writer Chris Ford. LucasFilm will produce.
