‘Everything Everywhere’ Filmmakers The Daniels Directed An Episode Of Disney+ ‘Star Wars’ Jude Law Series ‘Skeleton Crew’

It seems as if Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert are serious about doing “everything everywhere all at once.”

The Oscar-winning directors are now launching themselves into the galaxy with the Disney+ series Skeleton Crew, according to The Hollywood Reporter says the duo has already directed the first episode in the series, which wrapped during the summer. LucasFilm has not commented about any of these revelations.

Skeleton Crew, which stars Jude Law, follows a group of youngsters lost in space and trying to find their way home. It is being developed by Jon Watts, who reportedly asked Kwan and Scheinert to get involved in the project. As Kwan wrote in an Instagram posting this week: “We aren’t working on a whole series, we guest directed one episode. Jon Watts approached us to do an episode awhile ago (before EEAAO even came out.) We love Jon, love Star Wars, love learning new tech, we love meeting new cast and crew, and we needed the days to keep our healthcare (!!!) so it was an easy yes. We shot it last year and had an amazing time working with the most talented cast and crew and I’m excited for you all to see it.”

The two Daniels are still basking in the glow of this year’s Oscar ceremonies, where Everything Everywhere All at Once won them three trophies, for best picture, best director, and best original screenplay. Oscars also went to Michelle Yeoh for best actress, Ke Huy Quan for best supporting actor, Jamie Lee Curtis for best supporting actress, and Paul Rogers for best editing. But the duo is not resting on its laurels: In August, the Daniels signed a five-year deal with Universal.

Kwan insists that “Our next film will be an original Daniels project so you can stop worrying (and stop bothering me about it). Stay tuned for a scene in which a lightsaber ignites, and the blade is a glowing blue hotdog.”.

Though few details about the new Skeleton Crew project have been publicly announced, it’s expected that Lucasfilm will reveal more information at the upcoming Star Wars Celebration in London that runs from April 7-11.
