It was a great moment when Lucasfilm President, Kathleen Kennedy revealed that Marvel President was going to be producing a new Star Wars film.
It was then revealed a year months later that Feige had hired the services of Michael Waldron to write the film’s script.
He’s now hard at work penning the script for Feige’s Star Wars film.
Kevin Feige’s Star Wars movie is going to be a fresh take on Star Wars
Here’s what Waldron had to say about the upcoming Star Wars film he’s writing for Kevin Feige:
It’s coming along, it’s nice to have some time to focus on it. And it’s fun to get to do something that feels fresh and original, and I’m excited to work with Kevin again, and with the team at Lucasfilm. And I love Star Wars. So it’s a blast.
The interesting words in Waldron’s quote here are “fresh” and “original”. That’s what I like to hear.
Meanwhile, during an interview with Variety, Waldron revealed that he’s “writing away”. He also added:
I’m enjoying having the freedom on that to do something that’s not necessarily a sequel or anything. It maybe has a little bit less of a — it just doesn’t have a bunch of TV shows and movies that you’re servicing on top of it, the way I did with Doctor Strange. So it’s nice. It feels like a different exercise.
