Loki scribe Michael Waldron has been tapped to work on Kevin Feige’s long-rumored Star Wars film ahead of the premiere of Loki on Disney+.
Loki scribe Michael Waldron has been tapped to write a new Star Wars film produced by Kevin Feige. Feige is currently the president and chief creative officer of Marvel Studios. It was rumored in 2019 that Feige would be working on a Star Wars film for Disney. There’s been no word on the film since Disney did not mention it during their landmark content announcement at 2020’s Investor’s Day.
Waldron currently serves as head writer and creator on the upcoming MCU series Loki, slated to premiere sometime this year. Waldron also wrote the upcoming MCU film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which will see Doctor Strange team up with Scarlet Witch in what is being described as an MCU version of a horror film. Beyond that, Waldron’s credits are slim, including one episode of Rick & Morty and nine episodes of HarmonQuest.
Now, Waldron has a big project ahead of him. Deadline reports that he will be working on Feige’s Star Wars film. In addition to that, Waldron has signed an overall deal with Disney that will see him work on other properties at the studio. Presumably, he will be brought back for Loki season 2 under that deal if Marvel chooses to renew the show. Details about Feige’s film remain under wraps, but Waldron being brought on board indicates progress is being made in getting it to the screen.
