One of the upcoming Star Wars series that is currently in the works is Skeleton Crew. Back when the project was first announced last year, it was targeted for release this year which adds to the numerous Star Wars shows that were being planned to arrive on Disney+ this year.

However, a recent report from Bespin Bulletin casts doubt on the show's target release this year as they revealed that Star Wars: Skeleton Crew is experiencing some production delays. Filming was supposed to wrap by the end of 2022, but it has now been extended to March 2023.

The report also came in lieu of alleged claims that the series has been experiencing production issues that the crew members are facing, unlike the other Star Wars productions that were running smoothly.

However, they did point out that they are not sure if the production issues will actually impact the planned release date and this is just pure speculation at this point. The report only posed some concerns considering the delays and issues that we've been hearing about.

Despite these concerns and issues that the series is allegedly facing, there is still a possibility that they will be able to make it to their target release date by the end of the year. If not, perhaps it could premiere by early next year which will be a long wait for fans.

The plot of the series is being kept under wraps, but it is set to be an Amblin Entertainment-style of coming-of-age story that is set in the Star Wars universe and it is around the same timeframe as The Mandalorian and other spinoff shows.

Jon Watts and Christopher Ford created the series and executive produced alongside Kathleen Kennedy, Jon Favreau, and Dave Filoni. Jude Law is confirmed to star.
