Star Wars: Kevin Feige Addresses Involvement In The Mandalorian Disney+ Universe

Back in September of 2019, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Marvel CCO Kevin Feige is developing an upcoming Star Wars film.

Since this initial report, the trail has gone cold on the upcoming project, but it is expected to be in the early stages of development right now.

However, there was no mention of Feige's Star Wars film at the Disney Investor Day meeting. The only two films mentioned by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy were Patty Jenkins' Rogue Squadron and Taika Waititi's untitled Star Wars film

In light of his involvement in an upcoming film, fans began to speculate if Feige would have more involvement with Lucasfilm and the Star Wars universe moving forward. As it turns out, his Star Wars adventure will only a one-time thing. 


In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kevin Feige revealed that he won't be involved in any of the upcoming Star Wars Disney+ projects. When asked if his involvement would move beyond just the one film he's producing, Feige responded, "No. That's all Kathy Kennedy. I'm involved in as much as I stay up until midnight L.A. time to watch new episodes of The Mandalorian when they drop."

Feige shared similar sentiment back in January.


After the Infinity Saga came to a conclusion in the MCU with Avengers: Endgame, some fans speculated that Feige may move on to other projects. After 2019's San Diego Comic-Con, it appeared that Feige was as happy as ever as the Godfather of the MCU.

Then the report came out in September of that year that he was producing a Star Wars film, causing fans to question whether he'd be overseeing Marvel Studios for the foreseeable future. 

Feige's comments seem to point to sticking to the status-quo besides his one Star Wars adventure. Avengers director Joe Russo told The Hollywood Reporter back in 2020 that "Star Wars is Kevin's first and true love." Russo continues, further describing how big of a fan Feige is, "He's a man who has a very, very large basement filled with enough Star Wars paraphernalia to fill a museum. Whatever he does with it is going to be passionate, emotional, and unique."

Even though it appears Feige will be staying primarily in the Marvel department at Disney, his love for a Galaxy Far, Far Away should get fans excited for the upcoming film. For now, Kathleen Kennedy will continue navigating Lucasfilm, which is set to produce 11 upcoming Star Wars series and films. The first of which is The Bad Batchlaunching to Disney+ on May 4, 2021.
