Looks like big Star Wars news has hits once more.
According to Disney's own Alan Horn when he was interviewed at this year's Cinema Con, the studio that already owns LucasFilm Ltd. and the keys to the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises is looking to make the next 'Wars Trilogy saga and its subsequent spinoffs a yearly thing... Much like the other property owned by the company which is Marvel and its film centered "Marvel Cinematic Universe"!
According to reports by Bleeding Cool and Geek Tyrant, Disney is looking to release Episode VII with J.J. Abrams directing as scheduled, but will follow things up with a Star Wars film spin-off the next year on 2016. Whether it will be the rumored character film that may concentrate on a character like Han Solo or Boba Fett is anyone's guess, but the next chapter of the main trilogy being Episode VIII follows the year after on 2017. From that pattern another spin-off follows, and then the final chapter of the new trilogy comes in with Episode IX.
So there you have it. Potential and straight Star Wars films each year starting 2015. It's two years from now, so there's a lot to look forward to and updates still in the making.
