It is not known when Watts will begin work on the Apple TV + movie and if it could cause an overlap of commitments with the Star Wars project .

According to what was discovered by The Illuminerdi, one of the two protagonists will be between 11 and 12 years old while the other will be a man between 30 and 40 years old. Murphy’s Multiverse has confirmed that Lucasfilm is looking for someone between the ages of 10 and 12.

Star Wars: The High Republic

But what will this series be about? Collider ‘s sources explain that the studio wants to create a live-action series aimed at a young audience, which can be linked to the Star Wars: The High Republic multimedia project .

Cinelinx reported that Grammar Rodeo is the working title of a series set during the High Republic, described as “Stranger Things in outer space”. The two protagonists could therefore be a young padawan and his Jedi master.

Recall that The Acolyte series currently in pre-production, with Amandla Stenberg (The Hunger Games) in the title role, will be set in the last days of the High Republic.
