'Star Wars' Slowdown Confirmed by Disney CEO

  • 'Star Wars' Slowdown Confirmed by Disney CEO

In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, it seems like Disney CEO Bob Iger shares that opinion - and he blames himself for the rapid influx of adventures set in a galaxy far, far away.

This will be good news to the sector of fans who are simply feeling tired by how many Star Wars movies there have been lately (The Force Awakens, Rogue One, The Last Jedi, Solo), as more time between installments is pretty much what they've been asking for.

Iger admitted that he had made a mistake, and that there had been "too much, too fast", in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, after it put him at the top of its list of the most powerful people in the entertainment industry. And a pretty costly one at that. "We're just at the point where we're going to start making decisions about what comes next after (Episode IX)".

He concluded by underscoring that they are "going to be a little bit more careful about volume and timing. And the buck stops here on that".

Directed by JJ Abrams, Star Wars: Episode IX stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, and Carrie Fisher, with Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant.

Kuo added in his note that the iPhone XR is expected to do good, tipping it to account for upwards of 60 per cent of Apple sales. The smartphone has 64GB of built-in storage and supports expandable storage up to 256GB via a microSD card.

Does Iger really think that developing one Star Wars film a year is a bad strategy given the success he's seen with other Disney film studios?

In responding to Belloni, Iger referred to the upcoming "Star Wars" film series from the "Game of Thrones" cocreators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and detailed the "mistake" he believes he made in the "Star Wars" release strategy, along with his subsequent approach to a "slowdown".

If you felt that Disney releasing Solo: A Star Wars Story just five months after The Last Jedi was a mistake, you're not alone. The film hit theaters on December 20, 2019. Though Benioff and Weiss, as well as Rian Johnson, have their own series' announced in the Star Wars universe, story details remain a mystery. A crew jacket from "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" is expected to sell for up to £300 ($400), while a pair of Ollivander Wand Boxes from "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" is estimated at £400 ($530).

"Star Wars movies were like locusts, or blue moons: impressive but not often".

Looking ahead, Disney will no longer be producing Star Wars movies at a whip-quick pace. We can't offer a solid answer right now, but some feel that Disney has more work to do here than simply pumping the brakes.
