Disney and Lucasfilm recently registered the upcoming Star Wars TV series Skeleton Crew with the U.S. Copyright Office and that's given us a projected premiere date for the Disney+ series. As we first reported on, the hope had been that the show might be with us before the end of 2023 but it's currently listed for a January 2024 debut. 

A brief synopsis matches what we heard earlier this year about the children at the centre of this story getting lost in a "strange and dangerous" Galaxy. After watching Ahsoka, we believe this might be a reference to Peridia, with the crew potentially responsible for bringing Ahsoka Tano and Sabine Wren home.

In related news, the Star Wars Celebration trailer for Skeleton Crew has now leaked online and, while we won't be embedding it here, it is readily available on social media platforms if you go looking.

As we reported back in April after watching the sneak peek in London, it begins at a school and we follow a couple of the show's kids as they ride a speeder through the forest. They long for adventure beyond the classroom and, when their parents return home one night, they're gone. One of the girls is wearing a visor that brings back memories of a certain other franchise with "Star" in the title, and we saw lots of flashes of them exploring the Galaxy together. 

The Mandalorian villain Vane makes a fleeting appearance and it appears pirates will be the ones menacing this group. The kids are definitely in over their heads, and they eventually find themselves behind bars. Luckily, a key floats to the door, and one exclaims, "He's a Jedi!" The Jedi in question removes his hood and, yes, it's Jude Law's unnamed character.

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.

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.

Are you excited to check out Skeleton Crew when it arrives on Disney+?

Some info about SKELETON CREW from the US copyright office. Approximate release of January 2024.

I’m interested. Look forward to hearing/seeing more.

I highly doubt that this show will be how Ahsoka & Co. will make it back to their galaxy, but stranger things have happened. I just think that them getting back will be played out as being a much larger struggle (as it should be) than just another ship showing up with Jude Law popping out and saying "Hey! Need a lift?".

Otherwise this could be fun and lighter-hearted and there's enough good talent behind it to think it might be so, so I'm down.

@StSteven - wouldn't be the first time a Star Wars show suddenly continues the story of another show's lead.
StSteven - 10/9/2023, 5:48 PM
@bkmeijer1 - True, and if they take place at around the same time it's certainly plausible, it's just that a galaxy is a BIG place (and now we have at least two that we are familiar) so I think it would be a hell of a stretch for Jude and Ahsoka to just cross paths randomly just when Ahsoka & Co need rescuing. I mea, it's not like running into you school teacher at Walmart or something. Plus, how would Jude have a ship capable if intergalactic travel? Thrawn needed that bigass Ring to get back to his original galaxy. Maybe if the plot revolves around space pirates as rumored they'll be hunting purgil all Ahab-style and that's how Jude somehow ends up in another galaxy. Hell, worked for Ahsoka, so who knows?
bkmeijer1 - 10/10/2023, 1:29 AM
@StSteven - didn't Thrawn meed the ring because his own hyperdrive was broken?
StSteven - 10/10/2023, 3:48 PM
@bkmeijer1 - I don’t remember them saying that but that could be the case given the state of the ship. I just thought that he needed it because the distance between galaxies was so great that a normal starship wouldn’t be able to make it on its own. Typically when we see ships using their hyperdrives it’s for a pretty short time to jump between like solar systems and stuff within the same galaxy, so I just figured that they typically don’t have enough hyper-juice (that’s the technical term BTW). But I changed majors from Interstellar Space Travel to Comp. Sci. before I took the Hyperdrive class (the IST job market just isn’t what it used to be) so I could just be talking out of my ass here.
bkmeijer1 - 10/10/2023, 5:38 PM
@StSteven - I honestly didn't pay attention to a lot of things in Ahsoka. Lile how she probably mentioned why she didn't destroy the map right away.

As for the distance, I guess what you're saying could be right. Although I did graduate in physics and astronomy, I probably didn't pay attention in hyperdrive class either (although I have some good ideas on intergalactic travel).
StSteven - 10/10/2023, 10:18 PM
@bkmeijer1 - Yeah I'd have to go back an rewatch it (again) to pick up all those details and I don't have the time for that.

Regarding space stuff, you ever Arthur C. Clark, bro?
bkmeijer1 - 10/11/2023, 3:25 AM
@StSteven - I might consider a rewatch when a second series or the movie drops, but until then I'm not gonna spent time on it.

To be honest, I never got into Clark (or anyone of the Big Three sci-fi writers). I'm just not much a reader, so I listen to audiobooks instead. Currently working my way through a bunch of Star Wars audiobooks, which are fun as well.
StSteven - 10/11/2023, 5:58 PM
@bkmeijer1 - Yeah, now that the writers strike is over I have more than enough stuff to watch with the half hour to hour of TV time that I have each night, so I'm not going to rewatching anything any time soon.

I used to read a lot more when I had more free time (i.e. before I had a job, house, and kids taking up all my time) and I believe that I made it through "2001", "2010", and "2062" but I don't know if I read "3001" because I don't see it on my bookshelves right now. The thing that I really liked about those books that isn't immediately obvious in the "2001" movie (much less the "2010" movie) is that Clark puts for a theory of evolution that I find quite interesting. Basically it goes like this (if I recall correctly): Evolution consists of 3 phases: the first phase is from ape to human, mainly kicked off by apes learning to use tools (as seen in the beginning of the "2001" movie); the second phase is where man has figured out how to vastly prolong his life by being replace every part of his body with artificial parts (except his brain); and the third phase is where man has gained so much knowledge and experience and advanced so far the he no longer needs a physical body to exist and exists just as pure energy (essentially the entities that create the monoliths and who Bowman ends up joining at the end of "2001"). Even though it's not explicitly stated (that I recall), the inference here is that this then could be an explanation for the existence of God/gods, thereby somewhat reconciling science and religion (to a certain degree anyway).

Pretty heady concepts and I can understand why Kubrick didn't go to far down that rabbit hole in "2001", as that movie was pretty deep as it was already. But I personally find that stuff pretty compelling (especially back when I used to get baked with my buddies in college and get deep into these type of topics 😉).
bkmeijer1 - 10/12/2023, 1:58 AM
@StSteven - that does go pretty deep. And here I was thinking 2001 (the movie) already went pretty deep. Might look up the audiobook now
campblood - 10/8/2023, 8:49 PM
I just hope this isn’t stranger wars. Give it up already with that malarkey . They can be kids and not be lame
mastakilla39 - 10/9/2023, 12:19 AM
Damn Ahsoka was disappointing. favarau and filoni lied about not needing to watch the cartoons before this show becuase if you don't like I didn't then none of the character motivations or chemistry work. Show is called Ahsoka but its barely about her.....these star wars shows have been so underwhelming.

I skipped Andor and was planning to go back and finish it but after finishing Ahsoka it leaves me no incentive to do that anymore. I think I might be done with Star Wars shows and skipping skeleton crew too.
bkmeijer1 - 10/9/2023, 1:28 AM
@mastakilla39 - well, Andor is wildly different from Ahsoka. Or from any Star Wars show so far
Usernametaken - 10/9/2023, 4:02 AM
@mastakilla39 - you skipped the best written Star Wars story since the OT.
cadunovaes01 - 10/9/2023, 10:29 AM
@mastakilla39 - You skipped the best thing in Star Wars in years. In my opinion, Andor is the only 10/10 SW show.
cadunovaes01 - 10/9/2023, 12:56 AM
I don't know why, but reading the synopsis of this series, Caravan of Courage came to mind...

“A brief synopsis matches what we heard earlier this year about the children at the centre of this story getting lost in a "strange and dangerous" Galaxy.”
So it’s Star Trek Voyager? 🥱😴
