New Star Wars movies coming pre-Christmas every other year

Lydia FlemingMay 09, 2019

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the company has updated its theatrical release schedule, and now we know when we can expect new "Star Wars" films after this year's "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" completes the original saga, dating back 40 years. And instead of Avatar 3 following the next year, Disney-which, again, owns Fox-has made a decision to alternate holiday release schedules between the Avatar franchise and the Star Wars franchise.

While Disney will launch the highly-anticipated Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker this December, the next film in the franchise won't be seen until December 2022. The Avatar sequels release dates have been delayed once more, this time owing to Disney's acquisition of 20th Century Fox.

Story details and titles of the Star Wars and Avatar movies were not released.

LOS ANGELES: Following its merger with Fox, Disney on Tuesday sketched out its future plans for two of its most towering franchises - the "Star Wars" saga and "Avatar." .

The first of these new Star Wars movies is set to arrive on December 16, 2022.

AFC Bournemouth vs. Tottenham Hotspur - Football Match Report
Spurs had two red cards as Son Heung-min and Juan Foyth were sent off in the matter of a six-minute span. For all intents and purposes, though the game was decided through the Spurs' indiscipline.

Additional announcements by Disney include that Brad Pitt's sci-fi film Ad Astra will open later this year on August 20.

The studio just announced a slew of new release dates, and included in the crop were three never-before-seen Star Wars release dates, spread out over several years. The untitled films in question are part of a new trilogy that The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is now working on, dispelling rumors that he abandoned the project entirely.

While Artemis Fowl, which was due for release this summer, now won't hit cinemas until May 29, 2020.

Technically, that is still somewhat true, as all of the slated projects are now named "Untitled Marvel", with nothing to go on but their release dates: May 2020, November 2020, February 2021, May 2021, November 2021, February 2022, May 2022, and August 2022.

And an untitled Indiana Jones sequel will be released in September 2021, by which time Harrison Ford will be 79.
