Kathleen Kennedy's Lucasfilm ruined Star Wars; What will she do to the new Indiana Jones?

•, By Matthew Kadish

This December saw the fifth film release from Lucasfilm since being acquired by Disney Studios in 2012, with Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker being released to both critical and general audience disappointment. Indeed, the track record of Lucasfilm under the leadership of studio head Kathleen Kennedy has widely been regarded as a mixed bag. Though all the films produced by the studio have been box office successes, they continue with the trend of disappointing (and in some cases even angering) the fanbase for Lucasfilm's biggest franchise.

Now that the "sequel trilogy" for Star Wars has ended, Lucasfilm is beginning to turn its focus toward other properties that are in the studio's stable, which includes the beloved Indiana Jones franchise.
