“Lol, all those who write to us about being sucked into the ‘corporate machine’ can cool off. These titles are always misleading,” Kwan shared on Instagram Stories. – Do not worry. We are not working on a full series, we guest directed an episode. Jon Watts approached us to do an episode a while back (before EEAAO came out). We love Jon, we love Star Wars, we love learning new technology, we love meeting new cast and crew, and we needed the days to keep our health care (!!!), so it was easy, yeah.”
Kwan added: “I’m excited for them to see it. Our next film will be an original Daniels project, so you don’t have to worry (and don’t bother about it) anymore.
