A bit of Star Wars TV show news came out of the premiere for Solo: A Star Wars Story last night, and it revolves around Jon Favreau’s live-action TV series. We didn’t get a title, or casting information, but we did get some timeline information, which opens up all sorts of new avenues for speculation on what events we may see take place during it.
While talking to Nerdist, Jon Favreau revealed that his show would take place seven years after the Battle of Endor, which was featured in Return of the Jedi. He also confirmed that it would feature all new characters, so there’s a good chance we will see the formation of the Resistance from different perspectives that don’t include anyone from the Skywalker Saga films. It will be set 23 years before The Force Awakens, so there will be plenty of unexplored Star Wars stories to tell.

Favreau also confirmed that he will use the same tech he used to shoot Jungle Book, and his upcoming The Lion King project, which means it’ll look fantastic. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
