One Disney-Star Wars-Movie per Year

Disney hat während einer Präsentation auf der CinemaCon einen Star Wars-Film pro Jahr ab 2015 angekündigt. Anscheinend sollen die SpinOff-Filme im Jahr nach den Episoden-Filmen anlaufen, also Episode VII, Spinoff, Episode VIII, Spinoff etc etc ad infinitum. Für mich klingt das so, wie die Etablierung eines neuen Expanded Universe im Kino. Ich… muss da erstmal drüber nachdenken, ein simples WTF reicht hier für’s erste.

It sounds like not only is Disney making the projects summer 2015 release date for Star Wars: Episode VII a reality, but their presentation at CinemaCon revealed that they plan on releasing a Star Wars film every summer following that. The releases will alternate between the milestone episodes of the new trilogy and the standalone films that have been confirmed to be in the works. There were rumblings that the standalone films would be released between Episodes VII, VIII and IX, but this is the first we’ve heard from Disney about their plans to release a new Star Wars film every year following Episode VII in 2015.
