Kathleen Kennedy has been awarded an honorary CBE, which goes nicely alongside her induction as the first ever Honorary Fantha Tracker at Celebration Chicago earlier this year.

Receiving the award for her part in producing a haul of classic movies in the UK, she was joined by a who’s who of guests including her husband Frank Marshall, John Williams, Lawrence Kasdan and more.

Among the guests were Star Wars composer John Williams, The Empire Strikes Back and The Force Awakens screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, and The Last Jedi writer-director Rian Johnson. They were joined by director Deborah Chow, who is working on the new Obi-Wan Kenobi series, The Mandalorian directors Rick Famuyiwa and Bryce Dallas Howard, and The Rise of Skywalker second unit director Victoria Mahoney and screenwriter Chris Terrio.

Other attendees included Disney CEO Robert Iger, Disney studio chief Alan Horn, and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, who recently signed on to produce an upcoming Star Wars film, and Tomi Adeyemi, author of the fantasy novel Children of Blood and Bone, which Lucasfilm and Fox is producing as a feature film.

Many congratulations, the next time we meet we’ll remember to bow.
