During an earnings call, Disney CEO Bob Iger reiterated that Star Wars films are currently on hiatus with the focus currently on the television side.
The Star Wars franchise has come under fire in recent years after several films in the Disney era. Most recently, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker became the lowest-scored live-action film on Rotten Tomatoes. However, The Mandalorian and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order were both hits among critics and fans.
The future of the Star Wars franchise on film is uncertain with nothing but release dates lined up for 2022, 2024, and 2026. It has been reported by Making Star Wars that the next saga will take place during the High Republic, but we still don’t know of anyone who is attached for the 2022 film. In the past, Disney CEO Bob Iger has said that Star Wars films will be going on a bit of a break after the conclusion of the Skywalker Saga. Bob Iger has also mentioned how there might have been too much Star Wars in the marketplace at once.
As Disney and Lucasfilm figure out what comes next, there are currently separate film projects being developed by Rian Johnson and Kevin Feige. Lucasfilm is also reportedly courting Thor and The Mandalorian director Taika Waititi for a Star Wars film as well. During Tuesday’s earnings call, Disney CEO Bob Iger reaffirmed that the Star Wars films will be going on a “hiatus” with the focus on television for the next few years.
