Disney confirms Star Wars trilogy’s release years


In case you were wondering when we were getting more Star Wars after Force Awakens takes over the decade, we’re getting at least one a year so far. After Episode VII releases at the end of this year, and the first spin-off in 2016, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed (through an email to shareholders, according to Get Your Geek On) that we’ll be getting Episode VIII in 2017 and Episode IX in 2019. 

So, should I assume we’re getting a spin-off in between the big trilogy? Probably, until we get tired of it. I don’t see that happening any time soon though. Two years seems like the right amount of time to work on each film considering they’ve planned out the entire trilogy ahead of time this time instead of just making it up as they’re going along.
