J. Kim Murphy Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert have leapt from the multiverse to a galaxy far, far away. The Oscar-winning directing duo, known as Daniels, have helmed an episode of the upcoming “Star Wars” series “Skeleton Crew” for Disney+. After kicking off filming last summer, production has reportedly wrapped in recent months. While the complete list of directors on “Skeleton Crew” remains unannounced, sources indicate that Daniels helmed one episode of the upcoming season. “Skeleton Crew” stars Jude Law and is created by Jon Watts. While most narrative details remain under wraps, the Disney+ series will take place in the New Republic era, following the events of 1983’s “Return of the Jedi.” “The Mandalorian” team of Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni serve as executive producers.

Chloé Zhao on Lack of Women Nominated for Best Director Oscar: ‘There’s Clearly a Very Big Gap’
Marc Malkin Senior Film Awards, Events & Lifestyle Editor Chloé Zhao has known “Everything Everywhere All at Once” directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert — aka, the Daniels — for about a decade. They met when they were fellows at the Sundance Directors Lab. “They were making ‘Swiss Army Man,’” Zhao recalls. “To be able to reunite with them and see that they have been able to stay as authentic as when I first met them 10 years ago and the world embracing them, it’s so beautiful to watch.” I recently caught up with Zhao, who became the second woman ever and first woman of color to win best director at the Oscars for “Nomadland” in 2021, ahead of this year’s big night. She’s teamed up with Johnnie Walker on First Strides, an initiative that has provided more than $1 million to women’s organizations such as IFundWomen and She Should Run since its launch a year ago. The Johnnie Walker program is part of Friday’s Women in Film pre-Oscars event in Hollywood, providing free 30-day trials to MUBI to encourage people to watch more women-made films. “I joined Johnnie Walker to not only celebrate but to create support for women filmmakers and women-made films,” Zhao said.
