According to The Hollywood Reporter, a meeting took place in late summer with Feige, Kennedy, Alan Horn, and Alan Bergman. Walt Disney Studios co-chairman chief creative officer, Alan Horn, said of the meeting:
“We are excited about the projects Kathy and the Lucasfilm team are working on, not only in terms of Star Wars but also Indiana Jones and reaching into other parts of the company including Children of Blood and Bone with Emma Watts and Fox. With the close of the Skywalker Saga, Kathy is pursuing a new era in Star Wars storytelling, and knowing what a die-hard fan Kevin is, it made sense for these two extraordinary producers to work on a Star Wars film together.”
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker debuts in theaters on December 20, 2019, and will be the last installment in the Skywalker saga that was begun by George Lucas in 1977.
