Disney Announces Release Dates for New Star Wars Films
It might be a while until 2015, but fans of Star Wars might be rewarded yearly for their patience afterward. Collider reports that during a presentation at CinemaCon, Disney announced it would release a new Star Wars film in 2015, and new films will follow every consecutive summer after that for an indefinite period of time. According to the report, the films would alternate between “Episode” and standalone films, so that means new Episodes in 2015, 2017 and 2019. Variety published a similar report from CinemaCon, but said the releases for the standalones were “unclear.”
While not much has been released about Star Wars: Episode VII, we do know it will be directed by J.J. Abrams, written by Michael Arndt and could possibly feature characters from the original Star Wars trilogy. For what it’s worth, we think Patton Oswalt had a pretty great pitch for it earlier.
