Kathleen Kennedy Appointed Co-Chair of Lucasfilm

    Earlier today it was reported that Kathleen Kennedy would be taking on the role of Co-Chair of Lucasfilm.

    From The Hollywood Reporter:

    Kathleen Kennedy is becoming co-chair of Lucasfilm, as George Lucas begins to plan for his retirement, stepping away from some responsibilities at the company he founded in 1971 in order to concentrate more on directing and making movies.

    Under the transition, Lucasfilm announced Thursday, Lucas will become co-chairman of the board of Lucasfilm and continue as CEO. Micheline Chau will remain as president and COO of Lucasfilm, and continue to focus on the day-to-day operations of the business.
