Kathleen Kennedy Wishes There Were Comic Books And Novels To Pull Star Wars Ideas From

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy recently did an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. She takes the time to discuss George Lucas’ frustrations, challenging fans’ expectations, and bringing Marvel’s Kevin Feige into the mix.

She also touched on the difficulties in breaking new Star Wars stories because she doesn’t have any comic books or novels to pull ideas from.

“Every one of these movies is a particularly hard nut to crack. There’s no source material. We don’t have comic books. We don’t have 800-page novels. We don’t have anything other than passionate storytellers who get together and talk about what the next iteration might be.”

If only there were Star Wars comics published by Marvel. Then Dark Horse. Then Marvel again. If only a great author like Timothy Zahn wrote a dozen Star Wars novels. If only these situations happened. That way Kennedy would feel less pressure in breaking new Star Wars stories.

If only.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is set to release December 20, 2019.
