Disney will reduce the pace of Star Wars movie releases, with CEO Bob Iger calling his previous timing decisions a “mistake”.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Iger was presented with the opinion that there shouldn’t be a Star Wars movie every year. His response was candid:
“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.”
Iger continued by pointing out the ongoing Star Wars projects, like J.J. Abrams’ Episode IX and the Game of Thrones creators’ own saga (although The Last Jedi director, Rian Johnson’s own new trilogy wasn’t mentioned).
