Disney Is Going To Slow Its Roll On Star Wars Output

Disney CEO Bob Iger moved too fast on the franchise.

Disney CEO Bob Iger is in agreement that a new Star Wars movie every year might be overkill. In a new interview, the executive confirmed that Disney was rethinking its approach with the franchise.

"I made the timing decision, and as I look back, I think the mistake that I made — I take the blame — was a little too much, too fast. You can expect some slowdown, but that doesn't mean we're not gonna make films. J.J. [Abrams] is busy making [Episode] IX. We have creative entities, including [Game of Thrones creators David] Benioff and [D.B.] Weiss, who are developing sagas of their own, which we haven't been specific about. And we are just at the point where we're gonna start making decisions about what comes next after J.J.'s. But I think we're gonna be a little bit more careful about volume and timing. And the buck stops here on that."

We'll have to wait and see what Iger's definition of scaling down is, as Episode IX is set to release, a solo Obi Wan Kenobi movie is planned, Rian Johnson's trilogy is in the works, as well as Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss' original trilogy, and the new animated series Star Wars: Resistance is in production.

But you have some time to detox from Star Wars as Star Wars: Episode IX won't release until December 20, 2019.
