Kennedy becomes President

30 Oct, 2013

Lucas announces that long-time friend/colleague Kennedy will be taking over the reigns of Lucasfilm as president.

I’m excited to have the chance to work with such an extraordinary group of talented people. As George moves towards retirement I am honored that he trusts me with taking care of the beloved film franchises. I feel fortunate to have George there to advise me as we set out to make the next Star Wars films — it is nice to have Yoda by your side.
