Spider-Man trilogy director Jon Watts is allegedly discussing directing at least an episode of an upcoming Star Wars series on Disney+. Reportedly, the title of the currently unannounced series will be “Grammar Rodeo” and production is expecting to begin this Summer at Manhattan Beach Studios.
Will the Watts direct the series or not hugely depends on his busy schedule. After Spider-Man: No Way Home, a critically acclaimed and a tremendously successful movie, the director has new projects ahead of him – directing the Fantastic Four revamp for Marvel Studios, producing Final Destination 6 for New Line and HBO Max, and writing/directing a new thriller for Apple TV+ starring George Clooney and Brad Pitt.
It is still unknown who will be writing the series, but there is, however, a speculation that Jon Favreau, who was executive producer and writer on The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, will be executive producing this project as well. There are also some predictions on the plot and they claim that the story could be following young Jedi padawans and a Jedi master during the The High Republic era in the Star Wars universe.
Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige complimented Jon Watt’s storytelling and creativity, saying how fun it is watching him go from an “excited newcomer to an excited expert” and becoming a role model for other filmmakers.
“What’s such an honor working at Marvel Studios is getting to watch storytellers, whether they’re actors, whether they’re directors, whether they’re writers, whether they’re the other creative producers, grow and change and evolve over the years; and Jon Watts is an amazing example of that.”
