The force is stronger than ever with the mouse house! Walt Disney Studios certainly has its hands full with every new project that was announced at their investor’s meeting and with more on the way in the coming years. Back in the fall of 2019, it was reported that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige would be pulling double duty as he will produce a brand new Star Wars movie! Since then we haven’t heard any more news regarding that bit of information. Luckily thanks to Deadline we finally get a long-awaited update!
According to the article, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Loki writer Michael Waldron has been brought on board to write Feige’s upcoming Star Wars film! Deadline also goes onto report that a second season of Loki is in early development for Disney+ as Waldron will be involved in some capacity! The first season is expected to hit the streaming service sometime in May.
It’ll be a long while to see who will be joining Feige’s movie and who will direct it obviously, but it appears that Lucasfilm and Marvel Studios have struck gold over at Disney! This just goes to show how much faith these studios have in the guy and I for one am excited to see where this partnership goes from here on out! Other Star Wars films that are currently being made is Taika Watiti’s untitled Star Wars film and Star Wars: Rogue Squadron by Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins. On the Marvel Studios front, the MCU drought will reach its end with WandaVision finally hitting Disney+ next Friday!
Does this get you excited? Tell us in the comments below which actors would you want to see in Feige’s Star Wars movie? Which director would you love to see be involved?
