So, good news if you’re a Star Wars fan. Disney has revealed it has big plans in store for the franchise.
Starting with 2015′s Episode VII, the company is planning a new film every year for at least five years.
Disney made the announcement at CinemaCon earlier today. The plan will see the company alternate between a new trilogy of films being kickstarted by J.J. Abrams and various spinoff pictures.
In February, Disney announced plans for standalone films focusing on a young Han Solo and Boba Fett.
In addition to the Solo and Fett films, Ain’t it Cool reported that a standalone Yoda film is also in the works.
Episode VII will hit theatres in the summer of 2015 along with Avengers 2. So it will definitely be a busy summer for Disney, which owns both properties.
Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine, Toy Story 3) is writing the screenplay for Episode VII, with Empire Strikes Back scribe, Lawrence Kasdan, and Simon Kinsberg (Sherlock Holmes, X-Men: Days of Future Past) writing the other two instalments.
