Sometimes you can have too much of a good thing. When Disney acquired the Star Wars franchise back in 2012, the studio planned on expanding the cinematic universe by releasing one film a year. This went beyond the Skywalker saga and was to include spinoffs. However, after the fallout from Solo: A Star Wars Story, it seems like the studio will be hitting the brakes on production. The film was one of the lowest grossing Star Wars films to date, and because of that, the rumor that Lucasfilm would put more spinoffs on hold started to surface. However, Lucasfilm would dismiss those rumors. And now, it looks like there may be some truth to those rumors.

In a new interview with Disney CEO Bob Iger, he says that the future of Star Wars productions will be seeing a slowdown. He confirms that they took on too much too fast and blames himself for the aggressive output. More on the story below.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Following the news that Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will be writing and producing a new series of Star Wars films, Disney CEO Bob Iger has announced that Disney will be developing “a few” Star Wars TV series for its own streaming service.

Last November, it was announced that the studio would be launching just one show. Now it appears that more are on the way. However, it’s not clear if these series will be related to the current saga that will conclude with the J.J. Abrams-directed Episode IX, the trilogy that Rian Johnson will be creating, or something completely original and new. More on the story below.

Deadpool 2 Teaser: Ryan Reynolds As Bob Ross

Yes, Disney has bought 21st Century Fox. So most of their entertainment assets will belong to the mouse. That means that X-Men and Fantastic Four can now play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s sandbox. Whether or not they will remains to be seen.

But for those who were worried that Disney would tone down some of the more adult comic movies such as Deadpool, you can relax. Disney CEO Bob Iger says he intends to keep Deadpool as an R-rated movie. More on what he had to say about that and the future of rated-R Marvel movies below.

Now it appears that is no longer the case. Everything under the Disney sun will be moving over to the still unnamed streaming site. More on the story below.

Disney has a lot of properties. A lot of properties. In addition to its live-action and animation library, they also own Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm. So all of those films would appear on Netflix just a few weeks after they’ve been released on Blu-ray and DVD.

But it appears that streaming Disney movies on Netflix will come to an end in 2019. The studio has announced that it will be ending its deal with Netflix, and instead will be launching its own streaming service. More on the story below.

Disney CEO Not Expecting ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ To Be As Successful As ‘The Force Awakens’

Felicity Jones in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

The Star Wars universe will be venturing into a new galaxy this year as they will be releasing their first spinoff film. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will center on a group of Rebel fighters attempting to steal the plans to the Death Star. A true prequel that takes place before A New Hope. But the exciting part of the film is that it will focus on those who don’t have Jedi powers and have a ground war feel to it. But troubles behind-the-scenes have put the film in a very awkward position. Partially because Star Wars: The Force Awakens was such a massive hit, there are expectations that Disney should be able to follow up that same success for every new film released. And with the summer-long reshoots that took place and the addition of new creative forces, it seems like Rogue One could fall short of the expectations that The Force Awakens established last year.

And that’s what Disney CEO Bob Iger is not afraid to admit, but he is also remains optimistic that it could do very well based on the reactions to the marketing campaign. Check out what he had to say below.

Disney In Depth Banner

This week Disney announced that Tom Staggs, chief operating officer of The Walt Disney Company, would be stepping down from his pivotal role. Disney sees major players change jobs within the organization all the time – sometimes even switching key positions entirely – but this exit is monumental.

Staggs had been viewed as the probable successor to CEO Bob Iger, to retire from the Mouse House’s top spot in 2018. What Staggs’ departure from Disney means for the company requires examination.

Kevin Feige

While most would think that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is the top man who reports to Disney CEO Bob Iger, that really isn’t the case. He actually reports to Marvel Entertainment CEO Isaac “Ike” Perlmutter, a reclusive executive who is known for micromanaging the superhero entertainment giant. However, Feige has expressed frustration at the working relationship. So after venting said frustration to Iger and Disney live-action head Alan Horn, the company did some corporate restructuring, which gives Perlmutter less control over Marvel Studios and more to Feige.

More on the story below.
