The show is set nine years after the battle of Yavin, which places it five years after Return of the Jedi and starting at almost the same time as Season 1 of The Mandalorian. While some are worried this show will be more focused on a younger demographic, creator Jon Watts has already assured audiences that this “will not be a kid’s show.” 

Having the Daniels attached to the project is a major win, as the two have just found giant success thanks to their recent film Everything Everywhere All at Once winning seven Academy Awards during the 2023 Oscars.
