Kevin Feige is jumping across to the Star Wars franchise.
The streams are slightly crossing over at Disney, with the news that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is lending a hand on one of the studio’s other major franchises.
Kevin Feige is set to produce a new Star Wars movie for Disney and Lucasfilm, following conversations that took place over the summer. The news was officially broken by Disney co-chairman Alan Horn.
“We are excited about the projects Kathy [Kennedy] 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.
“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”.
Feige, of course, has just a little bit more time on his hands following the news that he won’t be working on future Spider-Man films. That’s as a result of Disney and Sony failing to reach a fresh agreement on sharing the character on the big screen.
Separately, it looks like there’s a collection of Star Wars projects now percolating, and announcements may just land around the time of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’s release this Christmas.
We’d do you a clickbait piece at this stage on ‘what will Kevin Feige’s Star Wars movie look like’, but given that all we know is that he’s working on one, it’d be very short.
More as we hear it.
