Jon Favreau has gained a mostly favorable reputation over the years, thanks to his work on Iron Man and The Jungle Book among others, so it's easy to see why fans are excited over his Star Warstelevision series. While there aren't many new details that have been revealed about his upcoming show, one crucial element has been confirmed; when it will be taking place.

Dan Casey from Nerdist recently had the chance to speak with the director, who revealed that the show will take place after Return of the Jedi and before The Force Awakens. Specifically, it will take place seven years after the Battle of Endor, which should get fans excited.

As if that wasn't interesting enough, the television series will also utilize the technology used in The Jungle Book for some fairly impressive CGI characters. No details on the characters were revealed, though they will likely be alien given that CGI will be used. Considering how good The Jungle Book looked, this could be a beautiful show.
