The neverending franchise. A glimpse into the future of entertainment monopolies? Sounds like it.
Disney announced today at CinemaCon that, starting in 2015, a new Star Wars film will be released every summer, alternating between main story episodes and stand alone movies.
The pattern will begin with JJ Abrams’ Episode VII installment, set for a 2015 summer release. While no casting announcements have been made, the return of the original trilogy’s main trifecta has been hinted at.
Now, that’s a whole lot of Star Wars! But could it be too much? Wonder what George Lucas thinks!
And can there ever be enough Star Wars? (Ask us again in 2025!)
