STAR WARS Movies Will Be Released Every Summer Starting 2015
Disney and Lucasfilm announced at CinemaCon in Las Vegas that Star Wars: Episode VII will be released in theaters sometime in the summer of 2015. They also said that every summer from there on out they will release another new Star Wars, and explain that they will alternate the episodic films with the standalone films.
They did not offer any more information on what they are planning with the franchise. Before this news, there was talk of releasing two to three Star Wars movies a year. Now it seems like we'll only be getting one a year every summer, which is just as cool. The studio must already know what the first couple stand alone movies will be, and I imagine it won't be long until they announce it. I can't wait to see what other Star Wars movies are coming!
J.J. Abrams is set to direct Star Wars: Episode VII from a script by Michael Arndt.
