Kathleen Kennedy
United States

Lucasfilm Limited


President / Producer

With a long and uber-successful career as one of the most respected executives in the industry, Kennedy was a natural choice to take over Lucasfilm. And deliver she did, with the $2 billion mega-hit “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” She has continued to keep a steady hand on the revitalized franchise even as directors departed and “Solo” failed to live up to expectations. Over the years, Kennedy has produced or executive produced more than 60 films, racking up 25 Oscar wins and more than $11 billion in worldwide box office. Among them are some of the highest-grossing films in history (“Jurassic Park,” “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial,” to name two) as well as such diverse fare as the “Back to the Future” trilogy, “Schindler’s List” and “Lincoln.”
