Kevin Feige will develop a Star Wars movie for Lucasfilm, Disney has confirmed.
Feige reportedly discussed the idea in a late summer meeting with Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy and studio co-chairmen Alan Horn and Alan Bergman.

Disney Studios co-chairman and CCO Alan Horn confirmed the project is in development in a statement. “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.”

Feige and Lucasfilm president Kennedy will be working on new Star Wars content after the final Skywalker Sage ends with the forthcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, opening on Dec. 20.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.
