Determined to milk it for everything it’s worth, and then some, it’s being reported that Disney intends to make a further 10 Star Wars films. At least. The first of these will be spin-off Rogue One, which is set to land in December.
We understand that many of these would revolve around a single character. For instance, Boba Fett and Han Solo movies are already in the works, but Obi-Wan Kenobi and Mace Windu entries are now also being rumoured.
“The success of The Force Awakens has given executives much to think about,” said an inside source, according to reports. “So many characters’ back-stories and futures can now be brought to life. When these ideas came from George Lucas 40 years ago, technology was lagging behind. Now they can be turned around in a year.”
So, a bunch of Star Wars movies that can be spunked out on a yearly basis. While that may not sound ideal to genuine fans, it doesn’t take much to see why Disney seems so keen to press ahead. The Force Awakens smashed box office records when it was released last year, and is still being shown in cinemas all over the world.
