Most Star Wars fans have dreamed of a universe where they get new films on a regular basis. Whatever else Disney has done with the franchise, they’ve at least made that possible. We’ve known we’re getting Star Wars: Episode VII in 2015 and that it would be followed by the rest of the sequel trilogy and standalone films. Disney and Lucasfilm dropped some additional news yesterday at CinemaCon though: they will be releasing a Star Wars movie every summer starting in 2015.
Yep, every summer.
It will alternate between the standalone films (whatever they’re about) and the new sequel trilogy. Episode VII starts a deluge of new content.
Even though I’m feeling less positive towards Disney given the cancellation of The Clone Wars and closing of LucasArts, I’m still hanging onto hope they’ll do right by the films..
