A new “Star Wars” film will come out every summer starting in 2015


Posted by on

Disney has some big plans for its upcoming “Star Wars” movies. The studio announced at CinemaCon that its current plan is to release a new “Star Wars” film every summer starting in 2015 with “Star Wars: Episode VII.”

In 2016, a standalone spinoff “Star Wars” movie will be released, and then the studio will alternate between releasing a direct sequel and a spinoff as the years go on. It seems as though the plan is to just have five “Star Wars” movies come out, though Disney could continue on after two spinoffs and the three sequel films. The spinoff stories could end up becoming their own series depending on how successful they are.

J.J. Abrams is directing at least “Star Wars: Episode VII,” though it’s unclear if he’ll return for future “Star Wars” installments. There have been rumors of spinoffs about young Han Solo, Boba Fett and a “Seven Samurai”- style movie that Zack Snyder was rumored to be working on (his rep denied it, but you never know). Disney clearly has some confident plans lined up, though the company has yet to reveal casting for “Star Wars: Episode VII” or what any of the future spinoffs will be about.

“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,” Abrams recently said of the current status of “Episode VII.” “The movies, the worlds could not be more different but that feeling that there’s something amazing here is the thing that they share.”

The Force Is With the Benders Star Wars Poster

The Force is with Benders Thursdays at 10P on IFC.

A long time ago in an ice rink far, far away, the gang from Benders decided to pay homage to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens poster that recently hit the Web.

It is a period of civil war in amateur ice hockey. The taxation of beer kegs to outlying rinks is in dispute and it can’t be settled on the ice. Hoping to resolve the matter with a blockade of hockey sticks in front of the Zamboni, the greedy beer distributor has stopped all shipping to the small rink where the Chubbys play.

While the Congress of the Penalty Box endlessly debates this alarming chain of events, the Supreme Referee has secretly dispatched two of the best forwards in the league, the guardians of peace and justice on the ice and in the galaxy, to settle the conflict. But first they need to get a healthy buzz on.

Check out the Benders take on Star Wars below.

Ever wonder if Jackie, Kelso, Fez, Donna, Hyde, and Eric ever made it out of Red‘s basement? According to James Franco, those dumbasses definitely did not.

In a new episode of AOL’s “Making a Scene with James Franco,” the actor peered into the future of the gang from That ’70s Show to see what they’d be up to if the show actually continued into their 70s. Turns out they’re still sitting around the basement, sharing a joint, and listening to some of the Steve Miller Band’s greatest hits.

In the sketch, aptly called “That 70s ’70s Show,” Franco plays both a stoned, elderly Kelso as well as a nostril-hair heavy Eric Forman. The only member of the crew who has made it out of the basement is Donna, who has sadly passed away into a higher plane of existence (yes, it’s possible for them to get higher) leaving Eric to mourn the loss of his one true love.
