Disney announces Star Wars Episode VIII to be released in 2017, Episode IX in 2019

From Variety:

Quote:
Six months after stunning Hollywood with its $4.05 billion LucasFilm acquisition, Disney announced that it plans to release the next three “Star Wars” films in 2015, 2017 and 2019.

Disney Studios chief Alan Horn made the revelation on Wednesday at the studio’s CinemaCon presentation after touting LuscasFilm as “perfect for the family imprimatur” of Disney.

Disney disclosed last October that it would open “Star Wars: Episode VII” in 2015 and Horn said Wednesday that it would be a summer release, followed by the next two alternating every other year. He also said that Disney and LucasFilm are working on other films related to “Star Wars” characters but did not elaborate as to when they would be released.

“We expect to have movies derived from that universe,” Horn said.

J.J. Abrams will direct “Star Wars: Episode VII” from a script by Michael Arndt. Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kimburg are working on scripts for the “Star Wars” spinoff films.

George Lucas’ first six “Star Wars” films grossed $4.4 billion globally and billions more from TV shows, videogames, theme park rides and merchandise.
