Kennedy has worked with a who’s who of directors, including Steven Spielberg, David Fincher, Martin Scorsese, Clint Eastwood, Robert Zemeckis, and JJ Abrams. She stepped down from Kennedy/Marshall to become co-chair of Lucasfilm in 2012 before taking on the role ofpresident.
Kennedy has produced several “Star Wars” movies, including the latest installment, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” which comes out later this month. She also produced Disney Plus’ buzzy “The Mandalorian.”
“British filmmaking has always played a significant role in both my life and career,” Kennedy said.
