George Lucas seems to have a lot of faith in Kathleen Kennedy. Do you think he's going to step up from his role as creative consultant (for the next Star Wars film)?
No. If George is involved in any significant capacity with a project, the top people in Hollywood will refuse to work on said project.
Or didn't you notice that few if any crew members from the first trilogy worked on the second trilogy? From actors to producers to production crew, anyone who has worked with Lucas won't ever again. And they've told their friends...

Lucas is actually going to be involved in the story of the films. Actually already has story treatments for them it seems.
The story treatment you refer to has existed since the beginning of Star Wars. The middle (first films) trilogy was based on WW2. The early trilogy (the prequels) was based on WW1.
