  • Watch The Star-Studded World Premiere Of 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Featuring Mark Hamill, Ewan McGregor, Donald

The live action Star Wars television series is still in development, but it seems executive producer Jon Favreau is already four episodes into writing the program, presumed to anchor Disney's upcoming streaming service.

Hamill has been quite tight-lipped about details surrounding the events of Star Wars films, so it's no surprise he didn't elaborate on all of his thoughts about the film, but his tweet certainly makes it sound like he was a fan. The film stars Alden Ehrenreich as Solo and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, both actors playing younger versions of the characters made famous by the original "Star Wars" trilogy. Taking place seven years after the Battle of Endor, the untitled Star Wars TV series will also use cutting-edge tech seen in The Jungle Book to bring all new characters to life. Before he had the Millennium Falcon or considered Luke Skywalker one of his best friends, Han was still talking and blasting his away across the galaxy. Ehrenreich plays the younger Solo in the standalone flick.

When Disney purchased the rights to the Star Wars Universe, they certainly wanted to make the most of their hefty purchase price - and so have turned the franchise which had always maintained large time gaps between films into a franchise with annual releases.
