Bob Iger Talks About a Star Wars ‘Slowdown’
Via The Hollywood Reporter:
In a talk with THR editorial director Matthew Belloni, Bob Iger discussed Disney’s plans for the future of Star Wars movies and whether or not the recent release schedule of films was too much, too soon.
Many believe Disney should pump the breaks and not put out a Star Wars movie each year.
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 going to make films. J.J. [Abrams] is busy making [Episode] IX. We have creative entities, including [Game of Thrones creators David] Benioff and [D.B.] Weiss, who are developing sagas of their own, which we haven’t been specific about. And we are just at the point where we’re going to start making decisions about what comes next after J.J.’s. But I think we’re going to be a little bit more careful about volume and timing. And the buck stops here on that.
The entire interview, which includes the future of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Games Gunn and Marvel films can be read on the official THR website.
