Kathleen Kennedy's Contract Apparently Extended For Another 3 Years

According to trade magazine Puck News Kathleen Kennedy’s contract as Lucasfilm CEO was extended for another three years until 2024. There has been no official confirmation by Disney or Lucasfilm yet so there is a slim chance it may not be true, however rumors about Ms Kennedy’s contract renewal were making the rounds in the past weeks with various “sources” reporting that her contract extension is a done deal. Puck News lends a lot of credence to this now since Puck News is a reputable trade magazine run by actual journalists with real industry contacts, and is not a fansite run by fans with “sources”. Other trade magazines also report the story, so despite the lack of an official confirmation it seems the story is true.
Of course no one is privy to what is going on behind the scenes – but in light of yet another quasi canceled movie, Rogue Squadron (according to insiders Patty Jenkins didn’t like the script at all and decided to walk), the once more delayed Indiana Jones 5 and a completely messed up sequel trilogy that ended on a whimper, not forgetting the box office disappointment that was Solo, one has to wonder what convinced Bob Chapek to extend Kathleen Kennedy’s contract. It’s rather telling that the writer for the Puck News article, former Hollywood Reporter editor and entertainment lawyer Matthew Beloni chose this headline to break the news: It’s Time to Take ‘Star Wars’ Movies Away from Kathy Kennedy.

I have nothing to add to this. So, what is your take on things?
