Star Wars films coming yearly from 2015

2013-04-18 09:10

Las Vegas - Disney is turning Star Wars films into an annual summer ritual.

Walt Disney chairman Alan Horn announced on Wednesday that the studio would release films set in a galaxy far, far away every year starting in 2015.

The parade of films will start with Star Wars: Episode VII, directed by J.J. Abrams.

Horn said the studio will then alternate films in the new Star Wars trilogies with spin off films drawn from the same universe.

He made the announcement during a presentation at the movie theatre convention CinemaCon in Las Vegas.

Disney announced plans to reboot the space franchise after buying Lucasfilm last year.

      Yeah Lohan, so true! I guess the Oscar Awards, Metacritic, The AFI Institute, Total Film magazine, Empire Magazine and pretty much all film critics in existence must be wrong. What a bunch of nerds! And the millions of fans around the world that watch the series

      I think @Lohan is a bit upset because the Hanna Montana franchise has died out... Not to wory you imature nerd theres still Dora the Explorer.

    Even the bad Star Wars movies will always be 1000x better than the best of Twilight, HP, Fast and Furious etc. But bring on MAN OF STEEL!

      They're just movies guys, if you enjoy them great, if not what difference does it make to those who do and vice versa.

    theres a good reason why star wars has become such a widely successful franchise and why it will be making a come back. it has good commercial value and has won people's interest many times over. u cant make say negative things about it if u have no idea what ur talking about. if u dont like, dont watch it. and dont compare it to anything else, please, ur just showing ur ignorance.

      Lohan Felix - 2013-04-18 13:08

      Whatever u nerds are starting to bore me!

  • Chantelle Michael - 2013-04-18 12:49

    lohan, u say that only nerds watch star wars. so either u arent a nerd and dont watch it, making u the kinda person who jabbers on abt something they know nothing abt. or u've watched it...making u both a nerd and a hypocrite.

  • Chantelle Michael - 2013-04-18 14:05

    wow! we bore u? lol. next time dont attack without ammo. saves u the embarrassment of using 'whatever' as a comeback.

      Lohan Felix - 2013-04-18 16:31

      let me inform you and your lil nerd tribe who do the nerd hand sign everytime you watch star wars cause you don't wanna get out of your little stupid fantasy world..every product has a certain target market to make big cash.twilight has its stupid teenage girls; justin bieber has his stupid teenage girl fans with terrible taste in music..star wars fans are? (sigh) yeah you guessed it NERDS!!!. congrats!!! and you get a big bag of nothing..if a movie does well on the box office its a success no matter how terrible the reviews are..twilight movies were a success even thou it got terrible reviews because the franchise was a success on the box office thank god its over cause stephanie meyer ruined vampires! g.i joe 2 got negative reviews but it was a success on the box office g.i joe 3 is already confirmed.what i'm trying to say is even thou star wars gets negative reviews its still a success on the box office because of nerds like you!

    Ah Lohan, you poor narrow-minded prawn. Luckily we have movies for you. They are mainly directed by Michael Bay. Of course, if a movie made up completely of explosions doesn't do it for you- maybe something a little less intellectually taxing, like Barney or the Teletubbies? Dora the Explorer?

      Lohan Felix - 2013-04-18 15:25

      you're an idiot u old fossil

  • Chantelle Michael - 2013-04-18 18:04

    thats how the film industry works u fruit fly. by ur own logic, u are giving urself the right to attack every movie release, franchise and its fans. instead of using years of experience and expertise to develop these highly successful movies, perhaps these large successful movie execs should have consulted someone by the likes of u who has nothing better to do than passing judgement on something above ur level of intelligence. so please do urself a favour and shut it before u embarrass urself further...btw, id love to give u a lil hand signal of my own to demonstrate where u can shove ur retarded opinions.
