Kevin Feiges Star Wars Film Has Found Its Writer

    The writer behind Marvel's Disney Plus series Loki and the last iteration of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be penning a new Star Wars adventure.



    We learned in September 2019 that Marvel honcho Kevin Feige was set to develop a new Star Wars film for Lucasfilm. At that time, we had no timeline for the next slate of films and series, nor information on what his film was going to be about. We just had the promise of one of the most influential men currently working in Hollywood tackling our favorite franchise.



    Now Deadline is exclusively reporting that Michael Waldron, the head writer and creator of Marvel Studios' Loki series (which is said to be ready for Season 2), will be working on the first draft of Feige's Star Wars feature. Waldron also took part in the latter rewrites of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the Sam Raimi-directed sequel which has just started shooting in the UK. This is all part of a deal that Waldron has recently signed with Disney, which means they are confident he can deliver the goods both at Marvel and Lucasfilm. Expect to see his name pop up more often in the future.



    Little more is known about Feige's venture into the Star Wars universe, only that he is eager to explore new worlds and meet new characters. With Rogue Squadron locked as the next theatrical Star Wars entry for December 2023, and Taika Waititi's feature probably coming in 2025, one has to wonder if Disney will shake up their Star Wars calendar once again; I cannot see this releasing in 2027, which is incredibly late for a film that has already captured a writer. If I were a betting man, I would say the theatrical dates past 2023 are placeholders and will adjust to the development of these films accordingly.

    I'll have to see both of those products before I can assess how hyped I should be, but I'm taking this as a good sign. Fiege is known for picking supremely talented people for his projects in the MCU, and I'm sure that's what he's done here. The crossover factor isn't strange (heh) either, given that the MCU is full of Star Wars fans and there's a decent amount of crossover.

    Overall, this is good news in the sense that the project is clearly alive, but neutral news given that Waldron's writing credits are pretty sparse up till now. Although he was a producer on two Dan Harmon shows in Community and Rick & Morty. ...so Fiege's continual love for Community is clearly still here.

    I’m not sure what to think of this news. My first impression is that this is not a bad idea. I’ve been saying for years Star Wars should hire more people OUTSIDE of Star Wars (think: ESB director.) But I also didn’t have Feige in mind. I personally do not care for Marvel movies, and this means story, flavor, and characters. I’m not sure how much of that is Feige or Stan Lee, but apart from the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, the first Avengers, Dr. Strange, and the 2002 Spiderman (yeah, yeah, I know it wasn’t MCU,) I’m just not that interested in Marvel.

    But, with that said, I will watch it like everyone else here, and I hope I love it. I have wanted to love something for so long in Star Wars since Disney took over but have not found the one “super” thing. Rogue One and Solo were the closes things for me “loving,” and I generally liked everything else except some episodes of Rebels, Resistance, and S2E2 of Mandalorian.
    I will give Feige credit if he can bring back fantasy world-building instead of similar sandy planets with flea markets. If there’s one thing I loved about Marvel is that they use CGI and are not afraid to use it to make the world look “big,” like the prequels.

    I do wish they'd branch out a bit more. It's getting increasingly harder to do given the sheer sizes of both franchises and all these Disney + series, but every time I see someone attached to a Star Wars project who's previously worked on something related to either Star Wars or Marvel, I'm pretty meh on it even if I do like said person's previous work.

    As Ghost of Obi-Wan said above, I'll watch it like everyone else here. And more generally, as I've mentioned elsewhere, I'm just happy for another Star Wars film at all, so this is certainly good news since it means the project is still coming along. Beyond that, though, I don't have any real attachment to Kevin Feige's name. Especially since he's just the producer here and not the director. At the same time, Kevin seems like a sensible enough choice given his success with the MCU, so it makes sense to have someone like him involved.

    Although that said, I am much more curious about who'll end up directing the film. I sorta agree with Flyboy and MandoChip above, in that it would be more exciting if they picked someone who hasn't worked on Star Wars or Marvel before.

    Interesting takes from all of you here.......hey.......keep your eyes on the "Star Wars Movie Draft Thread"

    You want new Directors for Star Wars you say?

    You will definitely see some "new blood" there. For my movie idea definitely!

    Great, so Feige's film is just going to be him working with those he's worked with before... as I feared. Yawn. Whatever happened to bringing in new blood?
