WTForce News Roundup August 2020

Kathleen Kennedy discusses the future of Star Wars storytelling, LEGO Star Wars, The Sims 4 Journey to Batuu Game Pack, Celebration Merchandise goes on sale, and #RememberingResistance Day is Saturday!

Kathleen Kennedy says Lucasfilm is taking a “step back” to develop the future of Star Wars storytelling.

Speaking to The Wrap, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy said, “We just need the time to step back and really absorb what George has created, and then start to think about where things might go. That’s what we’ve been doing, and we’ve been having a great deal of fun doing it, and meeting with lots of different filmmakers and talent. There’s so many fans out there and so many filmmakers that have been influenced by Star Wars for so long that it’s a fantastic opportunity to get a sense of who wants to be a part of this. So that’s what we’ve been doing.”
