Star Wars Movies Are Going On A Break Apparently, Hints Disney CEO
Star Wars has been grinding its way to success with its movies since 2015. With a new movie coming out every single year since then, Disney and Lucasfilm may have had enough. Now, it seems that it is time to sit back and rest their heads for a while. The overwhelming amount of content leading up to the final movie “The Rise of Skywalker” is something incredible in terms of content production. This also includes a couple of animated TV shows, video games, and a live-action TV series.
Star Wars Movies To Go On A Hiatus
The Disney-era movies have received a good overall rating and response with The Mandalorian probably getting the highest response. The TV show starring Pedro Pascal deals with a Mandalorian bounty hunter taking care of a baby from Yoda’s species. With work focused entirely on Season 7 of Star Wars: Clone Wars, the Star Wars movies will probably slow down as well.
According to Screenrant, CEO Bob Iger has said that the company released too much, too quickly, and there will be a slowdown of Star Wars films from 2020 onwards. This should not come as a surprise after looking at three Star Wars movies planned between 2022-2026. For now, there is nothing on paper about these movies but the end of Skywalker saga suggests that they could be spin-offs like Rogue One.
Struggles From The Disney Franchise
It is understandable when Disney any Lucasfilm talk about going on a hiatus. There have been ups and downs in the making of previous projects. This includes a change of directors and change of filmmakers in pre-production. This is probably because of the fast-paced movies that the franchise was rolling out. Since 2015, Star Wars movies have come out every single year until 2019’s The Rise of Skywalker. Even in 2020, Star Wars Clone Wars Season 7 is coming out, so work is not entirely at a pause. With this much pace, we believe that a lot of catching up needs to be done including working out creative disagreements.
With that mentioned, it seems that the coming announcements for the upcoming movies will most likely only mention the director and similar, but not much. Star Wars movies coming back to back now need to put on hold if the audience wants to see top quality content.
