Kathleen Kennedy is not being replaced says Disney CEO

Quote:
“We’ve been absolutely thrilled that we can have the kind of talent like Kathy Kennedy to direct Lucasfilm… We look forward to having Kathleen Kennedy running the Lucasfilm organization for many years to come.”

Sad.
It means SW will continue to suck (mostly).

She's made them billions of dollars and frankly the franchise under her watch has had more successes (Episode 7, Rogue One, all the shows except Resistance, other stuff like the books) than failures (Episodes 8 and 9, Resistance, and Solo).

They were never gonna fire her.

The newer Star Wars movies aren't for me (the only one I really liked was Rogue One) but all but one have been huge financial successes. You could make a reasonable case that the one that didn't do big numbers (Solo) was the one to give all the ones baying Kennedy's blood exactly what they wanted. If I were Disney I'd look at that and be very happy with it.

they are scared to fire her.

Plain and simple. and the civil war IS a thing.

For ****s sake, Kennedy's latest character is a ROCK named GEODE....

A lot of her success was inherited, so it's hard to say. You have to look at the trend within the timespan of her working on the property. I'm pretty sure there has been a decline in numbers, but I'm not 100% sure on that.

Yyyyyuup.

And someone above said something about how she made them millions.
Anyone could've made Disney millions with Star Wars. Anyone. Yet she did it while managing to alienate or piss off most of the fanbase.

Don't feed your addictions if you have issues with any of this. Don't give Disney Star Wars a dime. I haven't - not since I saw the Last Jedi in theaters. That was it.

I like how someone with no inside knowledge of how anything at Lucasfilm or Disney works thinks there's some sort of "civil war" by people who are all millionaires as if this is someones personal fanfiction or indie movie.

The fact that people actually bought into those (quite frankly obvious) lies for so long was pretty sad.

This doesn't mean there wasn't one. It just means she "won."

If we've learned nothing else from following the development of numerous films over the last decade, there is ALWAYS an internal struggle or "civil war" going on behind-the-scenes at any studio.

Frankly, I'm amazed at this point that with all the nonsense going on, that any movie ever actually 1. Gets made, and/or 2. Is good.

Much as I'd like to believe there is a "civil war", I think its scale and intensity are overrated. People might hate each other behind the scenes, but corporate money keep everyone together and silent.

No-one will go out of their to please relatively small group of old fans and lose their job and antagonize Pedowood establishment.

I'm sure there has been some discussion on how there's some fans dissatisfied with the direction of the franchise but I'm positive the billions she's made them shuts that down pretty fast.

sadly, yes. companies are SO afraid of the big bad woke twitter mob, that they are willing to sacrifice reputation, money and power in order to win over twitter likes. it's honestly INSANE the levels they go to, when just 6 years ago, she'd have been fired at the first sign of mass failure or inability to lead. A guy would have been fired already.

I seriously hate that Twitter has that much power. They literally have everyone by the balls.

Twitter honestly needs to be shut down at this point. it's nothing but a cesspool of hate and angry teens
