Disney's Bob Iger Talks About The Future Of Star Wars

Bespin refugee - March 23, 2017
This week, Disney's CEO Bob Iger signed a new cpntract, extending his tenure until July 2, 2019; and, during The Future of Tech and Entertainment conference, he discussed the future of the Star Wars film franchise. "When we bought Lucasfilm, we were going to make three films — Episodes VII, VIII and IX," Iger says."We’re starting talk about what could happen after Episode IX. About what could be another decade-and-a-half of Star Wars stories." He also says, "We are not changing VIII to deal with [Carrie Fisher's] passing. Her performance remains as it is in VIII. Iger also revealed new details about the young Han Solo movie, saying, "the film will span the Star Wars rogue's years from age 18 to 24. Han (played by Alden Ehrenreich) will meet Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and will be seen finding his ship, The Millennium Falcon."

Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, from writer-director Rian Johnson, opens Dec. 15 of this year.

The young Han Solo movie also stars Donald Glover as a young Lando Calrissian, as well as Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson in a mentor role, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directing the film, which hits theaters May 25, 2018.
