‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ Directors The Daniels Off To Star Wars Franchise

Fresh off their huge win at the 95th Academy Awards, Everything Everywhere All at Once directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan – collectively known as the Daniels – have charted their course for a galaxy far, far away. The filmmakers are helming at least one episode of Disney+ series Star Wars: Skeleton Crew, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It’s unclear if the pair will be directing just one episode, or multiple, of the show, which wrapped filming in recent months. Much of Skeleton Crew is shrouded in secrecy, but the story gist involves a group of 10-year-old kids getting lost in the galaxy and finding their way home. It hails from Spider-Man: No Way Home director Jon Watts, stars Jude Law in an undisclosed role, and is executive produced by The Mandalorian heavyweights John Favreau and Dave Filoni.

The news comes weeks ahead of Star Wars Celebration in London, where Lucasfilm would reveal its upcoming plans for the franchise. This year’s slate includes The Mandalorian Season 3, which is currently ongoing, the Rosario Dawson-led live-action spinoff Ahsoka, and of course, Skeleton Crew.

All things considered, it’s no surprise that the Daniels are making the leap to a bigger Star Wars universe. The newly minted Oscar winners are, after all, the brains behind Everything Everywhere All at Once, the multiverse spanning hit that nabbed the best original screenplay, best director, and best picture awards. The critically-acclaimed A24 feature also landed Michelle Yeoh (best actress), Ke Huy Quan (best supporting actor), and Jamie Lee Curtis (best supporting actress) their first Oscar wins.

Star Wars: Skeleton Crew is slated for release sometime in 2023.
