STAR WARS: Disney Reportedly "Struggling" To Find A Replacement For Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy

A new Star Wars rumour has surfaced and it once again points to Disney looking to replace Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy following Solo: A Star Wars Story's disappointing box office performance.

There have been rumblings for a while now that Disney could be looking to replace Kathleen Kennedy as Lucasfilm's President, something which does make sense seeing as she's now clashed with a number of filmmakers and could be at least partially blamed for Solo: A Star Wars Story's dismal performance at the box office. Then again, she's also spearheaded the franchise's otherwise successful revival! 

Adding more fuel to the fire is Beyond the Trailer's Grace Randolph who claims that she's heard Disney CEO Bob Iger is interested in replacing Kennedy but can't find anyone for the job. It's said that J.J. Abrams has already turned down the position as
have a number of others and that reportedly boils down to the fact that there are so many people within Lucasfilm who are loyal to Kennedy's leadership.

This should, of course, be taken with a pinch of salt for now but it's food for thought and definitely somewhat believable. After all, Solo was something of an embarrassment for Disney and we've heard from more reliable sources that the studio is going back to the drawing board with these movies.
