Four of the five “Star Wars” films under the aegis of Disney-era Lucasfilm chief Kennedy have been billion-dollar-plus hits, but that hasn’t stopped the incessant nitpicking and  
second-guessing by fans and even George Lucas himself. So it’s understandable to see Kennedy refocusing the franchise for TV via Disney+, including the multiple-Emmy-winning “The Mandalorian” and more recent arrivals “The Book of Boba Fett,” “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” “Andor” and “Ahsoka,” set to premiere in 2023. She’s also mined the Lucasfilm IP vault for a series sequel to the 1988 fantasy film “Willow,” with star Warwick Davis returning, and a fifth installment of “Indiana Jones” to star Harrison Ford that she is producing with husband Frank Marshall for a June 2023 release. In March, she received the Producers Guild’s Milestone Award.
