We will be away for a few months Star Wars Episode IX, but Disney is making plans for the future of the franchise – and they will include Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios president and producer of every Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Feige is developing a completely new Star Wars film together with Lucas film president Kathleen Kennedy as part of several new projects in the universe.
“We are excited about the projects that Kathy and the Lucasfilm team are working on, not only in the Star Wars area but also Indiana Jones and reaching other parts of the company, including Children of blood and bone with Emma Watts and Fox, & # 39; Walt Disney Studios told co-chairman and chief creative officer Alan Horn THR. "With the conclusion of the Skywalker Saga, Kathy is striving for a new era in Star Wars stories, and knowing what a die-hard Kevin is, it made sense for these two extraordinary producers to work together on a Star Wars film. "
According to THR, Feige has an unnamed & # 39; protagonist & # 39; told that he has a specific role in mind for them when the film is made, but there are no details. Other Star Wars projects that are in the works include separate function trilogies from The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson and Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, while Jon Favreau & # 39; s live action series The Mandalorian comes to Disney + when the streaming service is launched in November.
