Marvel Studios Kevin Feige Producing New Star Wars Story for Lucasfilm. This is not the logo you are used to seeing with Kevin Feige. So here’s what’s happening.
Reportedly, Kevin Feige will be stepping in to help tell new Star Wars Stories with Lucasfilm and Kathleen Kennedy. This all started when Disney Studios chief, Alan Horn, Lucasfilm President, Kathleen Kennedy, and Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige all met together earlier this year.
Normally, Disney keeps a rather tight lip about these sort of rumors, but this time they were happy to share the news with The Hollywood Reporter about their excitement for the collaboration.
“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,” Horn said in a statement to THR. “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 Warsfilm together.”
Currently, there is no context for Feige’s involvement other than both Horn and Kennedy loved an idea Feige presented during their meeting and his intention to be a producer for the film or series, but with his unprecedented success at Marvel Studios, this may just be the boost Lucasfilm and Star Wars need following the theatrical flop of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Though there seems to be some renewed interest for the film after the films digital release.
What do you think of Kevin Feige’s involvement at Lucasfilm? Do you think the Marvel head will help Lucasfilm, or will the new task distract him from his duties at Marvel Studios? What Star Wars Story would you love to see next? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
