The rumors of this same summer are confirmed through the CEO of Mickey Mouse’s company; Too many movies in a very short time.
This summer, it was rumored that Disney intended to suspend the film projects based on Star Wars spin-off after Han Solo’s production problems and box office fiasco: A Star Wars story; Now, and after denying the news at the time, the CEO of Mickey Mouse company, Bob Iger, has clarified the situation stating that from now on things will be taken more calmly in everything related to Star Wars and its spin -off.
End one movie plan per year
Thus, Bob Iger himself finally discards the initial plan to release a Star Wars movie per year, interspersing numbered episodes and spin-off. In this sense, the director recognizes that increasing the pace of production was an error, but says there are several major projects related to the galactic saga.
“I made the decision to increase the pace myself and when I look back, I think the mistake I made was to press a little more than the score, too fast. You can expect some slowdown, but that does not mean we stop making movies. J.J. Abrams is busy doing Episode IX. We have other creatives, including David Benioff and D.B. Weiss who are developing their own sagas, of which we have not given details yet. And we are at the point where we are going to start making decisions about what comes after J.J. But I think we’re going to be a little more careful about the amount and pace, “Iger told The Hollywood Reporter.
Of course, it will not be for lack of projects based on Star Wars; and that is that Episode IX of J.J. Abrams scheduled for December 2019 we must add the spin-off of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Boba Fett (main affected by the new Disney road map), the two new trilogies and the series of real action and animation of Jon Favreau and Disney Channel, respectively.
