Here’s a video of George Lucas talking about the future of Star Wars movies at Disney. He reveals that he has story treatments for Episodes 7, 8 and 9, but that he is done with Star Wars. He will not make anymore movies, but that doesn’t mean no one else can make them! Lucas has handed everything he has created for the Star Wars universe to LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy who will bring them to life!
Kennedy goes on the reveal that they’ve already sat down with writers to help bring these stories to life! It was also revealed recently that Disney and LucasFilm plan to release a new Star Wars film every two years, which is absolutely incredible! Lucas says,
I’m doing this so that the films will have a longer life. So that more fans and people can enjoy them in the future. It’s a very big universe I’ve created, and there’s a lot of stories that are sitting in there… I get to be a fan now, which is what I was saying before, and I’m looking forward to it. It’s a lot more fun actually.
As a huge fan of Star Wars, this is a Star Wars fans dream come true. I’m so excited about the possibilities, and I can’t wait to see how these movies turn out!
Are you excited to see episodes 7, 8 and 9 and new Star Wars movie every two years from here on out?
Here’s the official announcement video with Disney CEO Bob Iger.
