Kathleen Kennedy has been with Lucasfilm since 2012. Kennedy, over the course of her career, has produced or executive produced more than 60 films, which have collectively garnered 120 Academy Award nominations, 25 wins and grossed more than $11 billion worldwide. Her credits include “Jurassic Park,” “E.T. The Extra Terrestrial” and “The Sixth Sense.” The longtime Hollywood exec co-founded the Kennedy/ Marshall Co. with director-producer Frank Marshall and co-founded Amblin Entertainment with Marshall and Steven Spielberg. She is on the board of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Rumors began to swirl in June that Kennedy’s days at Lucasfilm are numbered following the disappointing box office returns for the Star Wars prequel “Solo.”
