Star Wars production to slow down

The jacket worn by Harrison Ford's character Han Solo in the 'Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back' film is on show at the Imax in central London

"But I think we're going to be a little bit more careful about volume and timing". "And the buck stops here on that". Star Wars fans were already tired of Lucasfilm and Disney's partnership cranking out one movie a year, which the studios now recognize was a mistake. Solo, meanwhile, only notched a worldwide gross of $392 million, even with opening over Memorial Day weekend this year. [Abrams] is busy making [Episode] IX. We have creative entities, including Benioff and Weiss, who are developing sagas of their own, which we haven't been specific about.

"'Star Wars' became a global phenomenon, of course, as a rare and infrequently-served delicacy", said Robert Thompson, a professor of pop culture at Syracuse University. Notably, it will be a centerpiece offering of Disney's upcoming streaming video service that it plans to launch next year and which is being seen as potential major competition for Netflix.

Since the House of Mouse's acquisition of George Lucas' franchise for over $4 billion, there's been a Star Wars movie every Christmas since 2015's The Force Awakens.

A jacket worn by Harrison Ford as Han Solo in the Star Wars film "The Empire Strikes Back" is expected to sell for up to 1 million pounds ($1.3 million) at an auction of movie memorabilia on Thursday.

While acknowledging the changing landscape of Hollywood, citing the success of inclusive movies with black and female leads, the article describes Iger as "the lead hunter" thanks to the commercial success that Disney has achieved under his stewardship.

Timing and details of those projects hasn't been confirmed, and its still possible some may not actually happen, especially after the struggles of Solo led to a reevaluation of standalone films.

Back in June, news surfaced that Disney and Lucasfilm were regrouping following the less than stellar box office performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story, which included rethinking how to move forward with any other spin-offs in the Star Wars franchise.

Star Wars items are among the most sought-after pop culture collectibles. While taking a look at the Star Wars aspect of things, Disney may want to take the same approach when it comes to their Marvel Studios productions as well.

Clearly, the biggest headline here is Iger's comment about X-Men and Marvel, which at least seems to confirm that the X-Men will join the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point in the future.
