Bob Iger Says Disney Released ‘Too Many’ Star Wars Films in a Short Time

-

Disney CEO Bob Iger recently spoke about the frequency of Star Wars films in a BBC Radio interview (via Deadline) about his new memoir. This news comes after Game of Thrones writers D.B. Weiss and David Benioff’s planned Star Wars trilogy was taken off the slate.

“I have said publicly that I think we made and released too many films over a short period of time,” Iger said. “I have not said that they were disappointing in any way. I’ve not said that I’m disappointed in their performance. I just think that there’s something so special about a Star Wars film, and less is more.” He also spoke about Marvel Studios films, saying that they’re “doing sensationally well.”

Disney is currently promoting the final episode in the Star Wars Skywalker saga, The Rise of Skywalker, directed by J.J. Abrams, who co-wrote the screenplay with Chris Terrio. The film stars Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Naomi Ackie, Domhnall Gleeson, Richard E. Grant, Lupita Nyong’o, Keri Russell, Joonas Suotamo, Kelly Marie Tran, and Billy Dee Williams, who will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian.

Composer John Williams, who has scored every chapter in the Star Wars saga since 1977’s A New Hope, returns to a galaxy far, far away with The Rise of Skywalker, opening in theaters on December 20, 2019.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Michelle Rejwan, and executive produced by Callum Greene and Jason McGatlin.
