Has there ever been a more fertile point in time for new Star Wars projects? Not only are we looking forward to The Mandalorian season 3 and waiting eagerly for The Book Of Boba Fett, there’s also the launch of The High Republic, a slew of new TV projects and adventures on the big screen, which includes one from the world’s most successful producer and super Star Wars fan Kevin Feige, who Deadline have announced has chosen the screenwriter for his own GFFA project.
That person is Emmy-award winning Marvel writer Michael Waldron, who’s deep into Phase Four adventures in the Marvel Universe with Doctor Strange and Loki on Disney Plus.
After penning Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness and serving as head writer and exec producer on the upcoming Disney Plus series Loki, Michael Waldron is looking to stay in business with Walt Disney Studios in a big way. Sources tell Deadline Waldron has been set to write a new Star Wars feature film that Kevin Feige, President, Marvel Studios and Chief Creative Officer, Marvel, will develop and produce for Lucasfilm and Disney. This just one part of the recent deal Waldron signed with the studios that will keep him in business with Disney for some time.
Deadline made it clear that Disney declined to comment, and of course until Lucasfilm make an official statement it’s just a rumour. That said, if it’s true then it appears we have another epic adventure coming our way.
