Amblin is the production company behind '80s classics like E.T., Gremlins, The Goonies and Back to the Future. It was co-founded by legendary director Steven Spielberg, Kathleen Kennedy (who's now Lucasfilm's president) and Frank Marshall (the producer behind the Indiana Jones movies)
The series doesn't have a name, but is apparently going by the code name "Grammar Rodeo" (previously reported by Discussing Film) -- a reference to a 1996 Simpsons episode where Bart and his buddies use a fake driver's license to rent a car and go on a road trip. A casting notice called for four children aged around 11 to 12, Vanity Fair reported.
The Vanity Fair article also revealed that Star Wars spy series Andor will hit Disney Plus late this summer. We'll likely get updates on some of these shows at Star Wars convention Celebration Anaheim, which runs May 26-29.
Neither Lucasfilm nor Disney Plus responded to requests for comment about Watts' show.
