  • Disney and Lucasfilm plan a continuing Star Wars franchise

Disney and Lucasfilm are collaborating to make Star Wars a more common name by continuing to put more films out on an annual basis.

It is the season of franchises. The trend started by Harry Potter soon caught up with Hollywood as it started to bring more and more book series on the silver screen and the audience has witnessed the successful rise of franchises including X-Men, Hunger Games, Maze Runner and Marvel Universe in more than one respect. The reason being the rapid advance in special effects and a better technological age in the movies than ever before. 

George Lucas’ futuristic space vision Star Wars is the perfect franchise to blossom in this age. With the collaboration of Disney, Lucasfilm intends to make Star Wars a more common name in Hollywood.

The franchise already has a fan base that reaches back to decades and the characters and stories are an abundant resource to draw from. The franchise has the potential to generate plots, story lines and ideas for a long series of movies. That is exactly what the studios intend to do.

Disney and Lucasfilm want to release a new movie in the franchise on an annual basis, according to Wired. Kicking off with the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens this year in December, the next installment, Rogue One is already in play to be released in December of 2016.

There are four movies that have been confirmed as a part of the franchise. If as successful as anticipated by polls, the Star Wars franchise is going to take a long leap that has no certain end in the near future. 

Rogue One is a period piece according to Kiri Hart from Lucasfilm Story Group. The events of the movies depict the events that led to the events in the first movie. In addition to the new trilogy and Rogue One, Disney and Lucasfilms are reportedly also working on prequel films dedicated to a pair of the original trilogy's most beloved characters, Han Solo and Boba Fett.
