Newly revealed merchandise for Star Wars: Skeleton Crew showcases the four young leads, while also pulling back the curtain on a mysterious droid (but not Jude Law's mysterious Jedi). Check it out here...

Star Wars fans who attended last April's Star Wars Celebration in London were treated to a first look at Skeleton Crew. However, more than a year later, Lucasfilm still hasn't released any of that content online (including the trailer which seemingly confirmed Jude Law is playing a Jedi).

What we do know is that the series takes place around the same time as The Mandalorian, with the expectation being that it will tie into the post-Return of the Jedi era of storytelling. How important it's going to be to the wider franchise and Dave Filoni's eventual crossover movie remains to be seen.

In the meantime, some leaked Skeleton Crew merchandise - first shared on SFFGazette.com - has offered a new look at the show's leads. 

Law is nowhere to be seen (we have a feeling the Captain Marvel star is likely the cloaked figure leading the four young leads), but a new droid is showcased here who, as far as we're aware, wasn't in last year's Star Wars Celebration trailer. 

Talking about the series, executive producer and director Jon Watts recently said, "It's about a group of kids that find a mysterious secret on their planet and accidentally get lost out in the galaxy, and it's the story abut them trying to find their way back home."

"You don’t need to have really any prior Star Wars knowledge to enjoy it. But if you do, you can enjoy it on many levels," the filmmaker added, suggesting the series will be relatively standalone. 

While there's nothing too spoilery here, chances are Lucasfilm will finally start building excitement for Skeleton Crew after The Acolyte launches next month. Of course, the studio may wait until the first season concludes before sharing anything.

Take a closer look at Skeleton Crew's leads in the Reddit post below.

Skeleton Crew follows the journey of four kids who make a mysterious discovery on their seemingly safe home planet, then get lost in a strange and dangerous galaxy. Finding their way home—and meeting unlikely allies and enemies—will be a greater adventure than they ever imagined.

As noted, Law leads the series and is joined by young actors Ravi Cabot-Conyers, Kyriana Kratter, Robert Timothy Smith, and Ryan Kiera Armstrong. 

Tunde Adebimpe and Kerry Condon also star, while the directing team consists of Jon Watts, Christopher Ford, David Lowery, the Daniels, Jake Schreier, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Lee Isaac Chung.

A premiere date has yet to be revealed by Lucasfilm and Disney+, though we expect it to arrive in time for the holidays.

Can't they just clack their Ruby moon boots together and say there's no place like home?

@DocSpock - The last time I tried that it was while dressed up as a cowgirl standing on top of a bar in Tallahassee and get me arrested. No further explanation required. 😉

Well done! I keep hoping for some flashbacks so I can remember half of the stupid things I did in the 70s.

@RolandD - The one where you're apparently not allowed to perform a one-man rendition of "I Get a Kick Out of You" on top of a bar while dressed as a cowgirl wearing ruby moon boots. That's about all I can tell you 😉.

Yeah this isn't for me,I grew up with the original trilogy and that was when Star Wars was f*ckin great.

Now it's being made by people that don't really care about the original trilogy fans.

@marvel72 - not catering to original fans is different than not caring about the original fans. The creators want anyone and everyone to watch the show. It’s really the original fans who
don’t want to see it because they want the same things over again.
marvel72
marvel72 - 5/19/2024, 4:58 PM
@Epc11223 - Look how the original cast were treated in the Disney trilogy.

I do like Rogue One, Andor and the first two seasons of The Mandalorion but that is basically set around the original trilogy.

But everything that has come afterwards has been nowhere near the same quality of what I mentioned above.

It seems they are targeting a different kind of audience.

@marvel72 - the only original trilogy character I would agree with that I didn’t agree with the story was Luke . Harrison ford wanted solo to die and he ended up impactful in the third one. Leila had an ok arc but carrie fishers death affected her storyline. Luke seemed too different but it’s a new story. The creators try for new stories and sometimes it just doesn’t resonate with the fans, but I don’t think it’s for lack of caring.

@marvel72 - Every Star Wars fan is an original trilogy fan, but not every original trilogy fan likes the rest of Star Wars. Catering to that group is what landed us with the less-than-creative sequel trilogy. Truth is, as creators, they’ve got to strive for more and push the boundaries of what we’ve come to expect from Star Wars. It’s when they do that, we get stuff like Andor or Rogue One, neither of which are anything like the original trilogy.

@Epc11223 - the OT fans want the opposite of the same thing over and over. It's why they hated the sequels.
McMurdo
McMurdo - 5/19/2024, 7:15 PM
@FireandBlood - except they didn't cater to that group...they thought they were. But they created a fascimile instead and it backfired

Epc11223 - 5/19/2024, 8:56 PM
@McMurdo - To me the force awakens was like a remake but the last Jedi couldn’t have been more the opposite of the original movies and that movie definitely had its critics and was met with a lot of cynicism. The last movie I don’t think a lot of people liked but it was more of a disjointed movie.

TheVisionary25 - 5/19/2024, 5:02 PM
Cool , looking forward to it!!.

Since they have said the show is inspired by movies like The Goonies , I could see the Geordi-esque kid being the Data of the group…

Are yall watching the same thing I am? Star Wars tv content has been fantastic. Cameos at the right time, staying true to animated characters transitioning to live action, superb actions scenes, great acting, fun space action, and drama.

@Order66 - they forgot Star Wars is a vast lore that can be told as any story with any genre. That's why we got this Vision anthology.

For me the best perspective is from the rebels against the Empire, such as Andor, Rogue One; BUT that doesn't change the fact that I still get excited about projects settled in the High Republic or just a kid's adventures. That is how a big universe works.

@FireandBlood - Of course because all Star Wars is great.

You like whatever you want but don't think people are hating on Star Wars to be cool,I've mentioned what I liked and you can workout what I don't, it's not because it's cool to hate on Star Wars.
