NEWS: Star Wars Takes A Three Year Break From the Movies
The Walt Disney Company has just published the studio’s updated release schedule, and among several other shifts and announcements, we’ve learned about several new Star Wars release dates. The film franchise is taking a three year break from the big screen, and you can continue reading to learn more details about Disney’s upcoming trips to a galaxy far, far away.
In the wake of Solo: A Star Wars Story‘s relatively disappointing box office performance, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and The Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger had both previously indicated that once J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker arrives in theaters, they were going to slow the pace of Star Wars franchise movies moving forward. Now they’re following through on that promise, because according to the Disney press release, “three new as-yet-untitled Star Wars films will release on the pre-Christmas weekend every other year beginning in 2022.”
