Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has clarified the situation surrounding Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige’s rumored Star Wars movie. Speaking to IGN, Kennedy said Feige is a big Star Wars fan but there was never a real discussion about making a movie.
“Kevin Feige’s project was something that was announced in the press… but nothing ever got developed. We never discussed an idea,” Kennedy said. “As everyone knows, Kevin is a huge Star Wars fan. If he did come up with something, I would be all ears. But that’s never really happened. It’s not an abandoned project–it just didn’t happen.”
According to press reports, Feige was going to produce a Star Wars movie, but no official announcement was ever made about this. In March this year, a report said Feige’s rumored Star Wars movie had been shelved. Speaking generally about movie development, Kennedy said it can be a long and difficult process to get from script to the screen.
“Development is a complicated, long-term process. For some people, we’re dealing with scheduling. Really talented people are working. So it’s often not a ‘shelving,’ it’s just, ‘Is it ready?’ That’s really what it comes down to,” Kennedy said.
To that end, Kennedy said Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins’ Rogue Squadron movie might not be going forward as planned, but the material could come back in some form.
As part of Star Wars Celebration, Lucasfilm announced three movies, one of which will feature Daisy Ridley coming back to play Rey once again. On the TV front, Ahsoka is coming this August, followed by Andor Season 2 in August 2024.
The next Star Wars video game is Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, which launches April 28.
