While the internet is still eagerly awaiting the release of Star Wars Episode VII, the Mouse knows how to keep a juggernaut moving. In a recent report to the Disney Stockholders, CEO Bob Iger (pictured above looking super chill with the Falcon) included the following note in his treatise..
"As one of the few people allowed to visit the set during filming….and one of the fewer who’s seen most of the footage…I can assure the millions of Star Wars fans who have spent the last decade hoping for a new movie this one will be worth the wait. And it’s only the beginning of a new era of exceptional Star Wars storytelling; next year we’ll release our first standalone movie based on these characters, followed by Star Wars: Episode VIII in 2017, and we’ll finish this trilogy with Episode IX in 2019."
Obviously, some of the things we of the massively obsessed may immediately take note of...
So... that begs the question, is the Mouse aiming at doing multiple trilogies? More stand alones? Stand alones with these new characters rather than the Han Solo/Obiwan/Boba Fett ones people have been craving? Or maybe all of the above!
Who knows... but I know this much, this is going to be one hell of a year for Star Wars fans.
