Doctor Strange and Writer Loki Give an Update on His Star Wars Movie

Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness writer Michael Waldron is hard at work on his star wars film.

Also known for orchestrating the Disney+ series Loki and some rick and morty episodes, Waldron was chosen by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige to be the project’s lead creator last year after partnering with Lucasfilm.

“We’re finally serious about it. I mean, I’m writing,” Waldron said. Variety this month.

“It’s a lot of fun. I appreciate having the freedom to do something that’s not necessarily a sequel or anything.

“It might have a little less – there just isn’t a whole lot of TV shows and movies that you stream on top of that, like I did with strange doctor. So that’s nice. It’s like a different exercise,” he explained.

Having once been a Marvel man, Waldron was asked what lessons from the mighty studio he would bring back to a galaxy far, far away.

“I think the success of the MCU is, for all the sci-fi and the incredible concepts and all that; ultimately success is about the characters, their humanity, their very relatable conflicts, their friendships and the family that is the MCU.

“And I think star wars, at its best, is a family affair. Han [Solo]Luke [Skywalker]and [Princess] Leia was a family; you love seeing them together and you hated when they were apart,” he noted.

“They’re great characters. It’s nothing new. I’m not going to wow anyone with that title, but that’s what I remember the most.”

We can’t wait to see what he has to offer.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has now been released in UK and US cinemas.
