More Star Wars Films On the Way?

A new report has claimed that Walt Disney are interested in making more Star Wars movies for “for as long as people will buy tickets”.

Writing for Wired, Adam Rogers admits that Disney – who purchased LucasFilm, and the Star Wars franchise, for $4 billion in 2012 – are looking at bringing out many more Star Wars-related films, meaning that current agreement of six films over six years could be substantially extended.

“And if the people at the Walt Disney Company have anything to say about it, the past four decades of Star Wars were merely prologue. They are making more. A lot more. The company intends to put out a new Star Wars movie every year for as long as people will buy tickets. Let me put it another way: If everything works out for Disney, and if you are (like me) old enough to have been conscious for the first Star Wars film, you will probably not live to see the last one.

It’s the forever franchise.”

As if you needed reminding, Episode VII – The Force Awakens – opens on December 17.
