Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige to Develop New ‘Star Wars’ Movie


According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige is turning to a different, huge Disney-owned franchise. He had discussed going into the Star Wars universe during a meeting over the summer with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and studio co-chairmen Alan Horn and Alan Bergman.

In response to THR, Walt Disney Studios co-chairman and chief creative officer 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 of 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 became the president of Marvel Studios in 2007, kicking off what’s now known as one of the most successful movie franchises of all time — the Marvel Cinematic Universe — in 2008 with Iron Man and ending its 23-movie Infinity Saga with Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home over the summer.

Kennedy became president of Lucasfilm in 2012. She is one of very few women in top executive jobs at Disney and renewed her contract for three more years in 2018. Having the presidents/producers of two of the biggest movie franchises from one of the biggest companies get together will be interesting, and we can’t wait to see what they create.

Megan has been passionate about writing since she was little and has been passionate about all things pop culture and nerdy since almost as long. Joining Nerds and Beyond in 2019, she also graduated from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh in 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia Journalism. Megan is constantly binge-watching shows and finding new things to obsess over. 9-1-1 and Marvel currently reign as the top obsessions. You can find her on Twitter @marvels911s if you ever want to discuss some certain firefighters.
