According to a new report from Vanity Fair, a new Star Wars TV series is in development for Disney Plus, led by Jon Watts, the director of Spider-Man: Homecoming and its two Tom Holland-starring sequels. The untitled series is described as a galactic version of classic Amblin coming-of-age adventure films from the 80s.
