Disney says a new ‘Star Wars’ film will comes to theaters every year beginning in 2015

Star Wars fans can rejoice after the news from CinemaCon on Tuesday as Disney promised a new adventure every year beginning in 2015.

The ongoing “Episodes” will be complimented by unnamed solo projects, which have been rumored to center on Boba Fett, Yoda and Han Solo.

Star Wars classic bannerDisney, although ambitious, has already recruited screenwriters Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg thought to be hard at work on the spin-offs.

 Director JJ Abrams will be moving from the Star Trek franchise to helm Episode VII, which is still set for 2015.

While it’s unofficial, George Lucas did confirm that the original cast will be a part of the new film.

Abrams is approaching the project as a fan first.

” I feel like I can identify a hunger for what I would want to see again and that is an incredibly exciting place to begin a project. The movies, the worlds could not be more different but that feeling that there’s something amazing here is the thing that they share.”
