The Daniels, the directors behind this year’s Oscar best picture winner Everything Everywhere All At Once, are working on an upcoming Star Wars series, according to reports.

Titled Skeleton Crew, the show will star Jude Law and comes from creators Christopher Ford and Jon Watts (Spider-Man Homecoming). While specific plot details have not yet been revealed, it is said to follow a group of kids who get lost in the Star Wars universe.

Known collectively as the Daniels, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert’s involvement in the project was first reported by One Take News, before sources told The Hollywood Reporter that the filmmaking duo have helmed at least one episode of the project.

Having wrapped shooting in recent months, Skeleton Crew is set for release on Disney+ later this year.

For their work on the sci-fi adventure Everything Everywhere All At Once, the Daniels picked up the best directing award at this year’s Academy Awards.

In total, the movie won a leading seven awards at the Oscars ceremony earlier this month, including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay and Best Actress for its star Michelle Yeoh.

As well as directing Everything Everywhere All At Once, the Daniels are also known for helming the 2016 surrealist comedy drama Swiss Army Man, which featured Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano.
