‘Star Wars’ Shocker: Marvel’s Kevin Feige Developing New Movie for Disney

Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy “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,” Walt Disney Studios co-chairman Alan Horn tells The Hollywood Reporter.

To the surprise of no one, Kevin Feige is a huge Star Wars fan. It might surprise many, however, that the Marvel Studios chief is going to be developing a Star Wars movie as Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy makes new plans for a wave of projects set in the universe, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Feige had discussed a foray into the Star Wars universe in a late summer meeting with Kennedy and studio co-chairmen Alan Horn and Alan Bergman, sources say. In response to a query from 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 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.”

I don’t know if I should be happy about this. The last thing further SW movies need is the “Marvel flavour”. It already killed 7, 8 and Solo for me. At least we can all agree that he would respect old characters more than Johnson/Kennedy did.

At this point I don’t think anyone knows anything.

Never safe to assume Star Wars fans will agree on anything (for instance, in this case, I do not).

It seems to me like it’s a theatrical feature. I can’t imagine you’d team up Kennedy and Feige on a project and not have it go to theaters.

I’m actually all for this, if, they move the hell the way from the main saga timelines. Between this and Rian’s trilogy, and I’m begging for someone to steer us into movies not about the Skywalkers, other iconic characters, and Empire/Rebellion conflicts.
