Marvel Studios mega-producer and studio head, Kevin Feige, has hired Loki’s Michael Waldron to write his Star Wars feature film.
The Star Wars universe is about to kick off a crazy new slate of movies and shows over the next few years, which will continue to expand on everything built up by the Skywalker Saga. The Mandalorian will take its successful run into a third season in 2022, and Lucasfilm is in the early stages of working on the Obi-Wan Kenobi series and the Andor series, both set to premiere on Disney+.
The franchise is continuing with more big time movies as well by hiring Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins to direct Rogue Squadron and even bringing on Marvel CCO Kevin Feige to produce his own movie for Lucasfilm. There’s no sign what property Feige intends to adapt, but considering his overwhelming success with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this movie should be in fantastic hands.
