Jude Law Hints At Star Wars Character Cameos In Skeleton Crew

Jude Law was awestruck filming Star Wars: Skeleton Crew and his comments hint at some exciting cameos in the galaxy far, far away. Announced at Star Wars Celebration 2022 in May, Star Wars: Skeleton Crew is a new series set to premiere on Disney+ from Spider-Man: No Way Home director Jon Watts with Star Wars creative Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni as executive producers. The series will focus on four kids who are trying to make their way home and is described as an Amblin-style adventure series.


It was confirmed at Star Wars Celebration that Jude Law had been cast in the series, yet his character’s identity has yet to be revealed. Law is an accomplished actor who over the course of his career has worked with some of the most well-regarded filmmakers including Steven Spielberg, Mike Nichols, and Sam Mendes. He has yet to appear in the Star Wars universe, though that’s all about to change. The advent of the franchise on Disney+ has lent itself to some exciting cameos, with Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett, Ahsoka Tano, and more appearing across various shows. Now, it seems Skeleton Crew could see some familiar faces return.

While promoting Peter Pan & Wendy at D23, Law talked about his time working on Star Wars: Skeleton Crew. Law told Variety that he was a big fan of the franchise growing up and feels like a child on set. Law even revealed he was awestruck by certain characters but did not reveal which ones, possibly hinting at some cameo appearances by Star Wars fan favorites. Read Law’s quote below:

“It was such an important part of growing up, the impact of that film and that world. The way it penetrated and exploded my imagination. There are one or two more times every day where I’m walking on set and it hits me like a child. I get awestruck by certain characters that are around me, that I can’t say.”

Law’s comment about certain characters possibly hint at who will appear in the series. Skeleton Crew is set after the events of Return of the Jedi and during the New Republic, around the same time as both The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. Given Law’s comment, it is likely the characters are ones he remembers from his childhood watching the original trilogy instead of newer additions to the franchise like Dinn Djarrin, Grogu, or Ahsoka Tano.

Both The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett featured a digitally de-aged Mark Hamill to play Luke Skywalker, and with the series focused on kids they might cross the path of the fabled Jedi master who is looking to train new students. The other strong contenders for the series are iconic characters like R2D2, C3PO, and Chewbacca who have appeared across the franchise at various points in time and since they do not require face actors to bring to life. Currently, there is no set release date for Star Wars: Skeleton Crew but with filming already underway the series could premiere in 2023 alongside The Mandalorian season 3 and Ahsoka to make for a year of Star Wars stories.
