Femalefirst.com reports that Disney boss Bob Iger could keep making ‘Star Wars’ movies for the next “decade and a half.”
Disney bought the rights to production company Lucasfilm in 2012, and have since been working on a new trilogy of installments, ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’, which was released in 2015, ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ which will hit screens in December this year, and an as-yet-untitled ‘Episode IX’ which has not yet been given a release date. Disney have also been working on spin-off movies.
Iger told Hollywood Reporter magazine: “We’re starting to talk about what could happen after Episode IX. About what could be another decade-and-a-half of Star Wars stories.”
If the studio continues at their current rate of one movie a year, this could mean that fans will be treated to a whopping 12 more ‘Star Wars’ stories before the doors are closed on the franchise for good.
