Disney have confirmed that this is not somewhere fans will recognise, as they are bringing to life the new planet Batuu, which is apparently located in the Outer Rim of the galaxy.

"On the one hand, Jon Favreau is a proven blockbuster filmmaker with a strong command of fantasy storytelling".

As of right now, Favreau's live-action Star Wars series has neither a name nor a release date, which is standard operating procedure for Disney. "I can't wait to embark upon this exciting adventure", he said.

What's more, he will voice a "cool and important alien" in the forthcoming "Solo: A Star Wars Story".
