Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is set to open in 2019.

"I couldnt be more excited about Jon coming on board to produce and write for the new direct-to-consumer platform", says Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. Lucasfilm announced this via their Star Wars site, and they also revealed that it would be available only on Disney's upcoming streaming service.

Initially hatched in '77, the time-honoured space opera has been pushing boundaries for nigh on 40 years, and thanks to Disney's record $4 billion acquisition of Lucasfilm back in 2012, the Star Wars franchise is arguably stronger now than ever before.

"Jon brings the ideal mix of producing and writing talent, combined with a fluency in the Star Wars universe", said Kathleen Kennedy, Lucasfilm president, in a statement. He also served as executive producer on the Avengers films.

It's likely that Favreau will do the same thing with "Star Wars", especially considering that his schedule is now full as he works on the upcoming CGI "Lion King" remake. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and risky criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes.

All the hard work will be done by someone else, and even if Favreau were calling the shots, his directorial quality varies so wildly that it's impossible to guess whether the "Star Wars" TV show would end up being worth watching. "Jon brings the ideal mix of producing and writing talent, combined with a fluency in the Star Wars universe".

The untitled "Star Wars" live-action series does not have a release date.
