Future Star Wars Movies Are Being Put On Hold Confirms Disney CEO Bob Iger

Who should direct the next Star Wars movies?

What’s going to happen to the Star Wars movies post Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker?

This has been a question that many Star Wars fans have been asking themselves for a while now.

The answer wasn’t clear, but now we seem to have a more definite answer thanks to Disney’s CEO Bob Iger.

There was a recent shareholders’ meeting in which Disney’s CEO, Bob Iger, spoke to other Disney shareholders.

During this conversation, it was reported (via Digital Spy), that Ige confirmed that Star Wars movies are going to go on “hiatus”.

Yep, it looks like the Star Wars movies are going to stop for a while.

This means we don’t know what’s going to happen with those potential Star Wars movie release dates they revealed a while back.

During the shareholders’ meeting, Iger added: “The priority [for the franchise] in the next few years is television.”

Disney has quite a few TV Star Wars projects coming out soon on its new streaming service, Disney Plus.

They already revealed that The Mandalorian Season 2 is coming out in October 2020, which is very soon

Sounds like Disney is going to put the Star Wars movies on hold for a bit

Disney and Lucasfilm are also working on an Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series for Disney Plus.

This series will see Ewan McGregor return as Kenobi, and the first season will be out in 2021.

There’s also the seventh season of Star Wars: The Clones Wars animated series.

That will be landing on Disney Plus on February 17th, 2020.

So, it looks like we won’t be getting new Star Wars movies for a while.

Perhaps this means production on Indiana Jones 5 will get cracking over at Lucasfilm?

Who knows. I am looking forward to seeing what Disney and Lucasfilm do next.

What do you think? Are you upset they aren’t making more Star Wars movies for a while?
