Lucasfilm has found the writer for its Kevin Feige-produced Star Wars feature project.
Michael Waldron, the writer and executive producer behind Marvel’s upcoming Loki series, has nabbed the high-coveted gig of penning the script.
The project is seen as being on a tier onto itself because it is being produced by Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, a separate arm from Lucasfilm, which oversees all things Star Wars. Feige originated the project and is producing with Lucasfilm, headed by Kathleen Kennedy.
Feige’s Star Wars project has been percolating under the radar since the fall of 2019 and it was only in late 2020 that Waldron surfaced as the choice as writer. That is after the former Rick and Morty scribe had already worked with Feige on Loki as well as on Marvel’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, currently in production.
The Feige-produced project was not mentioned during Disney’s recent Investor’s Day and is considered in deep development, a sub-tier the company hopes to keep as secret as possible before bringing it to the fore such as Rogue Squadron, the feature project to be directed by Patty Jenkins.
Waldron is repped by CAA and LBI.
