With the “Avatar” sequel movies being delayed a year, due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation, this has also caused a reshuffle of release dates for upcoming Star Wars movies.
Currently, James Cameron is in New Zealand filming the upcoming “Avatar” sequels, but the Star Wars movies are only in pre-production stages such as writing scripts etc. So if everything keeps to the new schedule, it will be 2023 before we see a new Star Wars movie in the cinema. However, there will be more series on Disney+ in between, including Star Wars: The Mandalorian season 2 and “The Bad Batch” animated series.
The new Star Wars release schedule now looks like this:
- December 22nd, 2023
- December. 19th, 2025
- December 17th, 2027
And things could still change if people aren’t to get back to cinemas soon or if filming is delayed further. This delay will also give the creative teams more time to work out a plan going forward, which hopefully gives us better films.
It’s unknown what these new Star Wars movies will be, though it has been recently announced that Taika Waititi would be directing one of the new films.
What do you think of all of these delays?
