He added: “To understand what’s happening on other shows….‘Skeleton Crew’ all take place within the same ‘Star Wars’ time period. There are a lot more things that we’ve got to keep in mind and also stuff that we’ve built up to from previous seasons of ‘The Mandalorian’ as well.”
The basic premise of the show follows Din Djarin, who is a bounty hunter and is tasked with protecting the Force-sensitive child Grogu.
