Waldron, who previously worked on Rick and Morty and Community, will write the screenplay for the movie which will take place in a new era after The Rise of Skywalker, according to Variety.
Along with his duties on the Disney+ series Loki, Waldron also wrote the forthcoming Doctor Strange sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
It’s known that Feige is a huge Star Wars fan, having previously admitted that he included a reference to the iconic franchise in every phase two Marvel movie.
Speaking to CinemaBlend, he previously admitted: “So is this a spoiler for Ant-Man… not really. I’m obsessed with Star Wars. Who’s not? I’m 40 years old. I’m in the movie business. I went to USC.

“So I’m obsessed with Star Wars – and it didn’t start out as intentional, but it became intentional, including that beat that you referenced. It sort of happens in every Star Wars movie, but I was sort of looking at it, ‘Okay, is Phase Two our Empire Strikes Back?’
He added: “Not really, but tonally things are a little different. Somebody gets their arm cut off in every Phase Two movie. Every single one.”
A whole host of new Star Wars content was recently announced by Disney including two spin-off shows of The Mandalorian, the upcoming Obi Wan Kenobi Star Wars series and Rogue Squadron a new Star Wars film by Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins.
Meanwhile, Loki – which picks up with Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mischief after the events of Avengers: Endgame and sees him joined by Owen Wilson – will arrive in May 2021.
