Kevin Feige’s Star Wars film is moving forward. According to Deadline, the project now has Michael Waldron set to pen the film. Waldron is already taking on double duties of executive producer and head writer on the upcoming Loki series set to air on Disney Plus. As well as writing the script for Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

I imagine I am not alone in seeing what Kevin Feige can do with Star Wars. While it’s not perfect, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a fantastic example of vision, planning, and execution. And while the big screen efforts that make-up the sequel trilogy are mediocre at best, fans have seen a new hope in the possibilities offered by Disney Plus is the future of the franchise.
Kevin Feige would obviously be about the best person Disney could get to head up an MCU like endeavor within a galaxy far, far away. Currently, Kathleen Kennedy is still president of LucasFilm, and it’s likely she will remain in that position for the time being. Kevin Feige and the MCU and still thriving, so it’s not likely he would leave the MCU for Lucasfilm, as much as many fans, myself included, would love that move.
