Marvel Studio’s Kevin Feige is headed to Lucasfilm — for at least one movie. A new report says he’s working on a Star Wars film.
Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studio, is now taking his hand at Star Wars.
The news comes in an exclusive with The Hollywood Reporter, which has a quote from Lucasfilm co-chairman Alex Horn:
"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.”"

According to the THR report, Feige is a big Star Wars fans – but then again, who isn’t? So, he’s excited to get his hand at creating in the universe.
There were other comments that caught my eye. The first being that Feige and Lucasfilm are working on a film together — meaning one. The only movies we are aware of right now are seperate trilogies being worked on by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and Rian Johnson.
The next Star Wars movie after The Rise of Skywalker is coming in 2022. So where would Feige’s movie fit in because it’s been led to believe that the movie in 2022 was the start Benioff and Weiss’ trilogies.
The other interesting note is this bit from the THR article:
"One knowledgeable source says Feige has told a major actor that there’s a specific role he would like that person to play if and when he makes the movie."
Let the speculation begin! It can literally be anyone, but so many names have been thrown around already as to whom this might be referring to. It could be anyone in the MCU from Brie Larson to Chris Hemsworth to Chadwick Boseman.
Yet that won’t stop the guesses.
Right now, it certainly sounds like this is in the development phase. Since we are less than three months out from The Rise of Skywalker, the marketing push will be for Episode IX.
Any news about Fiege’s movie will likely stay under wraps for some time. Unless there is a lull and it seems that fans are tepid on what’s to come from the Skywalker Saga finale.
While I do have thoughts on this news, they will come later. Right now, I’m letting it marinate a little bit.
