“We’re starting talk about what could happen after Episode IX. About what could be another decade-and-a-half of Star Wars stories.” Bob Iger (Disney CEO), The Hollywood Reporter
I guess Disney are going to run this thing into the ground with every last breath left in them. Milk it until it's dead and then milk it some more. It has turned into a total cash cow for them. Remember folks, too much of a good thing can be unintentionally harmful. Might as well mention my wish list: A Darth Vader origins story, post "Revenge of the Sith," and they should also just do the old republic stories. I don't know how you can continue doing this series until 2030 and not lose any integrity left in your artistry, but, hell, might as well wait and see. You need time to savor a great movie, to make it have a lasting impact, audiences were given time to savor the original SW films, to revisit them etc. Looks like Disney is doing to Star Wars what they are currently doing to Marvel, do you seriously think anybody will remember even 2/3 of the Marvel movies coming out today? Does anyone remember even a scene of the rushed-up jobs that were "Thor: The Dark World," "Iron Man 2" and, hell, even "Avengers: Age of Ultron" ??? Of course not.
I wrote this on Facebook: "This is only another reason why I'm loving the way Netflix has been so aggresive in building up their own movie branch. Most great directors are saying fuck it, let's all get out of the Hollywood studio system and make a new home over at Netflix. It's the only way to go."
