We know that Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm and the Star Wars brand opened the doors to new Star Wars movies, but how about yearly Star Wars movies?
At CinemaCon in Las Vegas today, Disney announced that once Star Wars Episode VII hits theaters in the summer of 2015, which they confirmed again is their intent, they plan on releasing a new Star Wars film every summer. Likely, this plan would involve alternating standalone films between each new edition of the sequel trilogy, at least for the first five to seven years.
Currently, Star Wars Episode VII is being written by Michael Arndt for J.J. Abrams to direct. Screenwriters Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg are consulting on other, various Star Wars movies in development.
More news as it develops.
