    At the premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story, Jon Favreau has revealed that there's already been a ton of progress on his live-action Star Wars television series for Disney's forthcoming streaming platform. In addition, he has also revealed the time period when the show will be set.





    UPDATE: This piece previously mentioned that the series was set seven years after the Battle of Endor, but the truth is that it's seven years after the Battle of Yavin according to an updated report. The piece has been updated accordingly to be more accurate.



    Nerdist reporter Dan Casey managed to snag a quick conversation with Jon Favreau confirming that not only does that series take place seven years after the Battle of Yavin, and not only will it feature a new cast of characters, but it also will feature CGI elements on par with his revolutionary digital work on The Jungle Book:









    How Favreau will be able to balance this and his remake of The Lion King (which sounds like it's going to be The Jungle Book on steroids, and will likely perform that way at the global box office), both of which are due for 2019, is anyone's guess. But he's off to a good start! According to his statement at the premiere, they're done with the scripts to half of the first season:
    It's sounding a lot like this show will be the killer app to Disney's streaming service, much in the same way shows like DaredevilOrange Is The New BlackHouse Of Cards, and Stranger Things are for Netflix - and if it's available to watch at or near launch, then Disney's investment in a streaming platform will practically pay for itself.

    I have so much more faith in Favreau than I do with Rian or D&D. I'm really excited to hear more about this show. 11 ABY is interesting, I wonder if they'll put in any book characters like the Aftermath crew or maybe Poe's parents. Give me live action Rex played by Temuera.

    "featuring all new characters" does this mean, we won't see a younger Luke, Leia or Han? I would expect a cameo.

    I assume it means the main characters will be new. Personally I wouldn't expect any cameos by Luke, Han, Leia or Lando. They'll probably want to avoid anymore recasting, especially for what would be a small role. I'd expect Mon Mothma, Ackbar, Nien Nunb and Madine type characters to return over the OT main characters.

    Great news that Jon's come out of lightspeed in the revealing sector. New characters, much appreciated. Interesting news that it takes place in 12aby. Near The Bloodline timeline just a different part of the galaxy I hope.

    Its well before Bloodline. Bloodline was 6 years before TFA which puts it at 28 ABY. This show would be 17 years prior to that novel.

    Can't wait for this series. Very interesting to see more of this time period. Hope it will have coherence with all new canon. Considering there are novels and comics and lots of new characters, i think it's important to keep the unity in timeline. I guess while writing that new staff they were already thinking in this tv series.

    I was worried it's gonna be the Empire again and hopeful it would rather be post Ep.IX. It's neither, but still a new and unexplored era. So I'm still satisfied.

    so 3 years after the Battle of Endor and two years after the Battle of Jakku (end of the Aftermath trilogy).
