Disney is going to re-launch Lucasfilms Star Wars franchise in 2015 with Star Wars: Episode VII. When this awesomeness was first announced, they said that we would be getting one new Star Wars film every two years. It looks like we're going to get a hell of a lot more Star Wars than that though!
Fanboys and fangirls are going to be in Star Wars bliss. In a recent interview with EW, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy revealed that the studio wants to pump out "two or three films a year"! How insanely cool is that?! It's crazy to think that there will be a point that every year we will get a new Star Wars movie!
It makes sense. Hell, Marvel pumps out two to three Marvel movies a year. This would go along with Lucasfilms' rumored plan to build a Marvel style movie universe for Star Wars that will include offshoot movies focusing on individual characters!
I'm extremely excited about this, how can I not be?! I was hoping that something like this would happen! I couldn't help but think though... "what if people get burnt out on Star Wars movies?" Then I thought, "Are you kidding?! If you're a Star Wars fan you'll never get burnt out!" Think about it, we fans continue to spend money on seeing the same Star Wars movies over and over again everytime they are re-released in theaters and various forms of home entertainment. Of course we're going to happily jump at the new stuff! Then there's the Marvel comparison... the movies just get better and better, and I can't wait for more Marvel movies! The Star Wars universe is just as big and even more exciting to me! So yeah, if Disney brings us three Star Wars movies a year, I will excitedly show up for every one!
Bring it on Disney/Lucasfilm! As a huge Star Wars fan this is exactly what I want!
