Jon Favreau’s live-action Star Wars series to begin filming soon

Jon Favreau’s upcoming live-action Star Wars series will soon begin filming in an undisclosed location.

Earlier this year, Disney announced it would be producing a new TV series set in the Star Wars universe. Now reports have surfaced that production will begin sooner rather than later.

According to Making Star Wars, Disney’s untitled live-action Star Wars series — the first of its kind — will reportedly begin filming next week.

The site also released set photos from an undisclosed location. Images appear to reveal a coastal location. Could it be Tatooine — or another familiar planet?

Iron Man’s Jon Favreau will both write and direct the series. It will release exclusively on Disney’s streaming service, set to launch later in 2019.

We already know the show will take place seven years after Return of the Jedi, and that a sizable budget has been allotted for its premiere season.

There have been several rumors circulating about which characters the series will feature and the locations in which it will take place. Some have suggested the show will feature Mandalorians on their home planet after the fall of the Empire.

Since this isn’t Favreau’s first time creating science fiction, many fans have faith in his ability to carry out a series good enough to inspire more live-action small-screen Star Wars content in the future.

But until we get at least a teaser for the show, it’s impossible to predict how it will compare to well-received series such as The Clone Wars.
