Most likely, Disney will continue to make movies from the Star Wars and Marvel franchises for our third generation of grandchildren. Just kidding, but indeed Disney has lots of plans for spinoffs, reboots, solo movies, sequels, prequels and hundreds of other things on this topic. And it’s natural for them to try to get as much money as they can from these sources.
As a matter of fact, Bob Iger, who works as a CEO at Disney, recently started talking about other Star Wars plans the company has. He explained the long term plans they have for the franchise and what is the company’s approach with regards to the far, far away galaxy”. He said that he, together with Kathy Kennedy, reviewed the plans they have for the franchise until 2020. That is indeed a long-term plan! As it seems, they want to release movies about this until then, and apparently Kathy Kennedy is working on making a Star Wars universe, rather than just a movie or a franchise.

This is really good news if you’re one of the fans who actually enjoyed the sequel and the turn of the franchise. Of course, this is not a relevant criteria to judge, but it might be a hint to the rest of the story. Star Wars: The Force Awakens has already hit the cinemas, and now another movie is in the works, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This will not drop until December and it seems that will build on the things J. J. Abrams included in the initial movie. Fans also have another milestone to wait for: in December 2017, Rian Johnson will release another franchise movie, called Star Wars: Episode VIII.
All in all, Star Wars fans have some serious waiting to do, but at the same time they seem to be occupied online with discussing various plots and theories about the turn of events Disney brought into the story.
