Here’s the shocker of the century right now. Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige is developing a new Star Wars movie for Disney. He also apparently already has an idea of who will be in the movie, and it’s official enough to get an official statement from Disney’s Alan Horn.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news this evening, and has the following statement from Horn:
“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.”
There’s no information at all about Feige’s movie other than he’s developing it. There’s no hint at a release date or how long it’ll be before it arrives. But this is an exciting time for Star Wars, with one of the biggest names in the world taking a shot at one of his favorite franchises.
