The head of Disney’s Bob Iger said that after the ninth episode of the film franchise Star Wars will be suspended. New pictures will be postponed, and the universe will be developed on television.

We’ll take a pause for a while, and then reboot, because the Skywalker saga comes to an end on the ninth film. There will be other films on Star Wars, but there will be a short break.Bob igerDisney CEO

Iger did not explain how long the break would be and how exactly it was caused. According to the head of Disney, he “doesn’t care at all” that viewers can be oversaturated with a franchise.

We have not announced any special plans for the following films. There are pictures in development, but we have not announced them.Bob igerDisney CEO

The ninth episode of “Star Wars” will be released on December 20, 2019 and will be the third picture of the new trilogy, launched in 2015 with “The Force Awakens.” According to Eiger, after the release of the film, the franchise will appear more on television.

So far, only one such project is known – John Favreau’s Mandalorian. It will be released exclusively on the Disney + service and will become the first non-animation series on Star Wars. Also in 2019, the company will present the first two theme parks for franchises in California and Florida.

Despite the words of Eiger, the last film in the Star Wars universe about Han Solo fell through at the box office. Critics attributed the failure of the fact that the paintings began to go out too often.
