Kevin Feige is going to be developing a Star Wars film. In response to a query from THR, Walt Disney Studios co-chairman and chief creative officer Alan Horn said, “We are excited about the projects Kathy and the Lucasfilm team are working on, not only in terms of Star Wars but also Indiana Jones and reaching into other parts of the company including Children of Blood and Bone with Emma Watts and Fox. With the close of the Skywalker Saga, Kathy is pursuing a new era in Star Wars storytelling, and knowing what a die-hard fan Kevin is, it made sense for these two extraordinary producers to work on a Star Wars film together.”
It is unclear if this means that Feige may have a role in the future of Lucasfilm when Kennedy’s contract ends. We also have no idea what the new Star Wars movie is about, but the Marvel president is the perfect person to produce a Star Wars film. THR also points out that “Feige has told a major actor that there’s a specific role he would like that person to play when and if he makes the movie,” but it’s unclear who that person is at this stage.
