New Star Wars Movie Every Year
News has just broken that Disney plans to make a new Star Wars movie every year.
Apparently, the plan is to do the new trilogy like the old. But this time, instead of 2 years in between each, it will only be one year. And then they will have a stand alone movie each year in between. So it should look something like this:
2015: Star Wars Episode VII
2016: Stand Alone Star Wars Movie
2017: Star Wars Episode VIII
2018: Stand Alone Star Wars Movie
2019: Star Wars Episode IX
After that, the future is unknown. This is a much more rapid turnover of films. Obviously this will require more directors than just JJ Abrams.
I don't know if the stand-alones will be related to the new trilogy or if they will be something completely different, like the once rumored 7 Samurai-style Zack Snyder project.
I holding my anticipation until I find out more of the story, but this sounds good!
