Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will not be the war to end all “Wars”.
Disney has announced after this final chapter in the latest trilogy is released on December 20, three more Star Wars films will hit theatres every other year, starting in 2022.
The Skywalker saga comprising Episodes I-IX will already be concluded, but there are six further confirmed films – a trilogy by The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, and a trilogy by Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
It is not yet clear whether these are the films scheduled for 2022, 2024 and 2026.
Audiences will also soon return to the planet Pandora — finally.
Disney announced the release dates of the four sequels to James Cameron’s 2009 science fiction epic. The yet-untitled Avatar 2 will hit theatres the weekend before Christmas 2021, and the three follow-ups will be released every other year at that same time.
Cameron, a director who notoriously goes over schedule and over budget, has delayed his movie several times already. It was initially supposed to come out in 2014.
As Avengers: Endgame looks poised to topple Avatar as the all-time box office champion with a global haul of over $US2.2 billion, Disney neglected to reveal any titles of the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe films.
