THR's Women in Entertainment 2012: Power 100
No female film executive saw her stock rise as dramatically in 2012 as Kennedy, who became the keeper of Hollywood's most lucrative franchise in late October when Disney acquired Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion and announced that it was resurrecting Star Wars. As a producer, the Northern California native and mother of two (married to producer Frank Marshall) already boasts some of the highest-grossing films of all time, including E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial and the Jurassic Park trilogy. With George Lucas serving as creative consultant, Kennedy, 59, will call the shots on Episodes VII, VIII and IX, with fanboys no doubt dissecting her every move.
