The Low Down You Can “Expect Some Slowdown” From Disney’s ‘Star Wars’ Films Published 1 week ago on Oct 9, 2018 By Will Gardner We all love our Star Wars films, but the franchise seems to be biting off more than they can chew. Disney released Solo: A Star Wars Story just five months after The Last Jedi, and many fans as well as actor Mark Hamill believe it was too much too fast. Now, Disney CEO Bob Iger says he’s pulling back on new release dates to give the existing movies some time to breathe. Solo: A Star Wars Story A Box Office Flop Solo: A Star Wars Story wasn’t just a shock for fans. It grossed $392 million worldwide, which is a big disappointment in comparison to all other Disney Star Wars films, which all made at least $1 billion. After this, CEO Bob Iger says he learned his lesson and will slow down production for the next few films. Wallpapers-Best In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Iger says, “I made the timing decision, and as I look back, I think the mistake that I made—I take the blame—was a little too much, too fast. You can expect some slowdown, but that doesn’t mean we’re not gonna make films.” Iger continues to say Disney will be much more conscientious about the volume and timing of future Star Wars films. Not The First Time Disney Jumped The Gun This isn’t the first time Disney has received warnings to slow their roll with Star Wars. J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy urged Iger to push the release date back for Star Wars: The Force Awakens from late 2015 to 2016. Wonderful Engineering However, Iger had promised returns in 2015 for investors and stood firm. Though they compromised to push the release date to December, many believe Disney would have done better not releasing the films so close together. What Does Disney Have In Store For 2020? The newest Episode IX is still scheduled to hit theaters in December 2019. However, other films have not been announced yet. It’s undetermined what Iger meant when he promised a slow-down for Star Wars, but some fans speculate there may not be a film in 2020. Reggie’s Take No matter what, fans are excited to see what Disney can do with the franchise. They have done a fair job thus far with keeping the integrity of the original films, but much is left to be decided. Next: Joaquin Phoenix Shows Off New ‘Joker’ Look For Upcomi...
