Disney sets dates for next three Star Wars films from 2022

Star Wars Avatar

Disney's recent pledge that Star Wars would take a theatrical break after this year's Rise of Skywalker has been confirmed by this schedule, and it's a remarkable one: three years. Also, both "The Last Jedi" director Rian Johnson and "Game of Thrones" showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are working on their own separate trilogies. The company also has new Star Wars-themed lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World based on a never-before-seen planet to promote.

Disney announced its updated movie release calendar today, and in it revealed that after Episode IX there are at least three new Star Wars movies on the way. The original plan was for Avatar 2 to hit theaters back in 2014, but development on the screenplays-which then led to James Cameron expanding his plan from two Avatar sequels to four-caused significant delays. The company is shifting around the debuts of various films it inherited after buying the bulk of 21st Century Fox's film and television assets in a $71.3 billion mega-merger. The film stars Harrison Ford.

"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".

The list also included a huge chunk of Avatar films being pushed out in 2021, 2023, 2025 and 2027.

Police said they were able to look at the license plate of the vehicle (pictured) that Vence was driving. One of them makes a comment, saying that Maleah looks very nice, looks very sweet.

Avatar 2 has been delayed a full year, from December 2020 to December 17, 2021.

Dark Phoenix opens June 7, while New Mutants has been bumped yet again to April 3 of next year.

While Artemis Fowl, which was due for release this summer, now won't hit cinemas until May 29, 2020. From there, the franchise will release a film every other December.

There's plenty to talk about with these films, but it's a clear reminder that Disney will dominate the pop culture conversation whether we like it or not. Most likely, that includes the yet to be announced Black Widow film, The Eternals, and sequels to Captain Marvel and Black Panther.
