The reveal was made along with other announcements such as the new Ahsoka series, Tales of the Jedi season 2, The Acolyte, and more.

Trailer and Tone

In addition to Law, the series features Ravi Cabot-Conyers, Ryan Kiera Armstrong, Kyriana Kratter, Robert Timothy Smith, Tunde Adebimpe, and Kerry Condon. The showrunners and executive producers are Jon Watts, Christopher Ford, Dave Filoni, Jon Favreau, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. On the other hand, Gilchrist and Beck serve as co-executive producers, while John Bartnicki and Susan McNamara are producers. The directors include Jon Watts, Christopher Ford, David Lowery, Daniel Kwan, Daniel Scheinert, Jake Schreier, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Lee Isaac Chung.
