Star Wars as we know it is coming to an end. Therefore, Kevin Feige is put on the task to develop a new series of Star Wars – movies, together with Kathleen Kennedy. Kevin Feige has for the past decade dedicated his career to creating the massively popular Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Just like so many others, Feige is a fan of Star Wars and has spent time in meeting to develop a new wave with executives from the Walt Disney Studios. The chairmen were very pleased with what’s about to come from the LucasFilm department at Disney.
“We are excited about the projects Kathy and the Luicasfilm team are working on, not only in terms of Star Wars but also Indiana Jones and reaching in 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.”
Even if Disney plans do downgrade the production of the Star Wars movies for a while, Rian Johnson, D.B Weiss, and David Benioff are set to write and direct new movies in the franchise. Next up is The Mandalorian (2019-)for DisneyPlus, created by Jon Favreau. And then I December we’ll have the final movie of the Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker (2019).
