Bob Iger Reaffirms STAR WARS Episode VIII And IX Release Dates


According to The Wrap [via Get Your Geek On], Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger has revealed to Disney investors that Star Wars: Episode VII will arrive in 2017 and Episode IX will arrive in 2019.  Currently, Rian Johnson (Looper) is attached to direct.  J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens will hit theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.  Here's what Iger shared with Disney stockholders in a written statement:

“As one of the few people allowed to visit the set during filming… and one of the fewer who’s seen most of the footage… I can assure the millions of ‘Star Wars’ fans who have spent the last decade hoping for a new movie this one will be worth the wait. And it’s only the beginning of a new era of exceptional ‘Star Wars’ storytelling; next year we’ll release our first standalone movie based on these characters, followed by ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ in 2017, and we’ll finish this trilogy with ‘Episode IX’ in 2019."
