Take a Drone Tour of Disneyland's Huge Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge Park

Iron Man, Jungle Book director Jon Favreau to produce first live-action Star Wars TV series

Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy.

A second and largely identical version of "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" is also under construction at Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World in Florida.

Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau has signed on to executive produce and write a live-action Star Wars series for Disney's new direct-to-consumer platform. The not-yet-named service is expected to launch in late 2019.

Favreau and Disney go way back. He is now producing Disney's remake of "The Lion King" movie. Just recently, we learned that Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss would be writing and producing a series of Star Wars films for Disney.

Favreau's also very excited about this upcoming project, naturally.




Favreau chimed in saying, "If you told me at 11 years old that I would be getting to tell stories in the Star Wars universe, I wouldn't have believed you".

Kathleen Kennedy said in a statement that Benioff and Weiss' command of complex characters and mythology will help break new ground for Star Wars.

The concept art for Disney's first Star Wars park already looked incredible, and now you can see what's under construction.

Both "Star Wars" lands are set to open next year, although an exact date has not yet been announced.
