Favreau, 51, whose directorial credits also includes Iron Man and Iron Man 2, will also executive produce the series which will be launched on Disneys streaming platform.

"If you told me at 11 years old that I would be getting to tell stories in the Star Wars universe, I wouldnt have believed you. I can’t wait to embark upon this exciting adventure," Favreau said in a statement.

Favreau is not a stranger to the Star Wars universe, having played roles in both the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series and in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story.
