A new rumor claims that not only has Kathleen Kennedy reached a separation or settlement agreement with The Walt Disney Company to walk away from Lucasfilm and Star Wars, but she also claims to have disclosed some numbers from the agreement.
This new rumor comes from Bionic woman And the sleeper cell Producer Kamran Pasha on the Valliant Renegade YouTube channel.

Pasha first reveals that this is not first-hand information, but information he received from a reliable source. He says, “I have no direct knowledge. I have not seen the documents in question. I can only pass on what has been conveyed to me by this person who claims to have it.”
He went on to elaborate on the information, “It appears Kathleen Kennedy has reached a separation settlement with Disney. She has reached an agreement with Disney according to this source, and it has given me specific information about what is in that separation agreement.”
Pasha then moved on to reveal, “The claim is that her severance contract with Disney will give her $25-30 million in compensation with a golden parachute to leave Disney. But what’s interesting, my source said, is that there’s quite a bit of it in stock or in stock options.” So much so that my source actually made the comment that they were surprised.”
“They were surprised at how large a part of the severance package was,” he reiterated.

Pasha then quoted, “This is breaking news that we have an active service severance agreement claim to leave in 2023 to the tune of $25-30 million in inventory significantly.”
And that my understanding is that it would allow her to remain quietly at the helm of Lucasfilm for a few more months and relate to what we’ve been talking about that exit seems to be related to Indiana Joneswhich I understand is June 30th and I believe to be a release date Indiana Jones,” confirmed.
Then he adds, “And so theoretically shortly after that. Maybe early July, maybe shortly after the honors they hope to get out of Indiana Jones, which may or may not exist. But whatever press they can get out of it, they will then announce her retirement or at least present her while she is retired to her golden glories.”
Pasha then went on to detail that a second source had contacted him and informed him that at least one trade outlet like The Hollywood Reporter, Deadline, or Variety had also gotten wind of Kennedy’s retirement, but they are not currently reporting on it.
Pasha stated, “Then a second source came to me in the last few days and said they were talking to a reporter in the trades, in one of the trades, who said, ‘No, we’ve had information that Kathleen Kennedy has reached a final deal, but we’re not allowed to reveal it. ‘” I think as a trade, you pull the information out and book it at the request of the studios.”

This rumor follows one YouTuber John Campea who also claimed that Kennedy will be out shortly after the release of the new Indiana Jones movie on November 22nd.
Cambia stated, “Here’s what I’ve heard: I’ve heard that the decision to remove Kathy Kennedy has already been made and that she will be leaving at some point before or very, very, very shortly after the release of Indiana Jones 5… Now, I want to be very clear here: I cannot independently tell you and confirm that this is a fact. I will say that one of the two people who contacted me had a 1,000% rate on the things they reported to me.”
WDW Pro at That Park Place predicted back in July that Kennedy would be out sometime in late 2023 after the release of the fifth issue. Indiana Jones Movie. He wrote, “What I’ve been hearing for years is that Kathleen Kennedy wants to end Indiana Jones 5 and wants to continue to influence Star Wars.”
He later noted, “I think Kathleen Kennedy may finally be done with her commitments at that point. That will probably be late 2023, and of course a lot could change between now and then.”

Kennedy walked out on the company after Indiana Jones back in 2019 when Jason Ward of Making Star Wars podcast claimed that Kennedy would step down as president after Indiana Jones 5, but would continue to make films.
A recap of the paywalled podcast was shared to Reddit by user Sidon_Ithano and read in part, “Jason has heard Kathleen Kennedy is stepping down as president of LucasFilm after Indiana Jones 5 but will continue to produce films. Kevin Feige will run LucasFilm but there will be separate divisions It is run by other people.”
