According to DiscussingFilm, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” director, Jon Watts, is reportedly in talks to direct at least one episode for an unknown upcoming “Star Wars” series for Disney+.

“The currently unannounced series is going under the working title of Grammar Rodeo with production slated to begin this Summer in Los Angeles. While we haven’t been able to gather any concrete information on who will be writing this new project, we’ve heard from a handful of sources that Jon Favreau will be executive producing. Favreau, of course, is an executive producer and writer on The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, and will soon be additionally credited as an executive producer on Ahsoka, which is at the moment in pre-production for a filming start within the next couple of months.
