Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy Reveals What Interests Her The Most About The New Star Wars Movies

Easily the biggest news out of Star Wars Celebration this year was the reveal that Lucasfilm planned three new films that would span the entire length of the mythical timeline to which every Star Wars movie is attached. James Mangold will go deep into the past to explore the origin of The Force. Dave Filoni will tell a story in the Star Wars present (according to Star Wars movies in order) that will connect plot threads of The Mandalorian, Ahsoka, and more. And then Daisy Ridley will return to the role of Rey for a movie set 15 years after Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker. It’s a welcome return to the realm of making movies, and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy explained to CinemaBlend the core idea that got them excited about moviemaking again. 

Katheen Kennedy is attending Star Wars Celebration 2023 in London, and attended a press line on behalf of Ahsoka, the new Disney+ show starring Rosario Dawson. But she was open about all things Star Wars, including the new movies that had been revealed. When explaining how Lucasfilm balances fan expectations against the types of stories that the company wants to tell now, Kennedy went on to reveal:

The interesting thing about Star Wars is, it is a continual story. It’s not books we’re pulling off a shelf, or characters. We’re actually telling a continual story. So what interested us with the movies was the Jedi. We started talking about, and looking at, how do we want to treat those stories? How do we want to look at this history of Star Wars now, and eras, that we start to look at, where are the pockets of storytelling?
