Is Disney working on a fourth ‘Star Wars’ trilogy?

Disney Star Wars Movie Release Schedule

Disney has Star Wars movies coming out every year from now until 2020, including the remaining two episodes in the third trilogy and three anthology films. But the company is also developing Star Wars anthology stories that are supposed to bridge the gaps between regular movies. So what happens come 2021? Expect more Star Wars.

As Deadline reports, Disney CEO Bob Iger told investors earlier this week that there’s long-term planning for its franchises including Star Wars.

“We figured out – not perfect science, and we’ve made some mistakes – but we figured out the odds for making good films….We have a great system in place,” the CEO said about Disney’s recent movie-making strategy.

Iger also said there’s a third Star Wars story to be told after Rogue One (2016) and the Han Solo project (2018), which will arrive in 2020. A writer for this third story was hired, but we have no idea what the story is. Meanwhile, Episodes VIII and IX are scheduled for 2017 and 2019.

Once these five movies are completed, it’s likely Disney will simply keep the ball rolling.

Iger has started talking with Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy about plans for 2021 and beyond, Rolling Stone reports. It’s not clear at this point whether a fourth Star Wars trilogy is in the works, once that will expand the story of Rey and Finn even further, or whether Disney will focus on other characters from the saga.

Rogue One will hit theaters this December, but don’t expect Force Awakens-like numbers, Iger hinted. Interest is high, he said, and Disney “loved” what it has seen for the movie. Apparently, it’s a break from the past because “it does not fit neatly into the Skywalker saga.”

Chris Smith started writing about gadgets as a hobby, and before he knew it he was sharing his views on tech stuff with readers around the world. Whenever he's not writing about gadgets he miserably fails to stay away from them, although he desperately tries. But that's not necessarily a bad thing.
