Why Lucasfilm Is Making Star Wars For Kids Again (Despite Failing Before)

With the official announcement of Star Wars: Skeleton Crew and Star Wars

Young Jedi Adventures, Lucasfilm is noticeably planning

to make children Star Wars' core target audience again. Star Wars

Skeleton Crew centers around a group of children from a small planet who go astray in a galaxy far, far away.

It will portray the children's turbulent voyage finding their way home.

The upcoming series might not be explicitly “for kids” but it's clearly aimed

more squarely at a younger demographic than Disney+'s other new, darker Star Wars shows. Star Wars

Young Jedi Adventures is specifically aimed at the preschoolers and

follows younglings starting their journey to become Jedi Knights.
