Disney’s Bob Iger Confirms ‘Star Wars’ Production Slowdown

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 Junior Novel by Joe Schreiber

Solo: A Star Wars Story Junior Novel
Star Wars Junior Novelizations
Paperback | Kindle | Audiobook
Written Joe Schreiber
Audiobook narrated by Sean Henin Bradford Hastings
Publisher: Del Rey Books | Random House Audio
Audiobook Release date: September 4, 2018

I’d like to preface this by saying that the next week or so is going to be interesting. I just finished the audiobook of Solo: A Star Wars Story Junior Novel (which I will review here in short order) and then I’m embarking on Solo: A Star Wars Story Expanded Edition. Both are novelizations of the same movie, but with different authors and different voice talents on each. I want to liken it to watching the theatrical and director’s cuts of a film, but I don’t think it’s going to be like that at all, to be honest, because the interpretations by the authors should be slightly different and the lead voice will have a different sound entirely. Bear with me, okay?

I began with the Junior Novel audiobook because I knew I could tear through it pretty quickly and because I’m already familiar with author Joe Schreiber‘s work in the Star Wars Universe having read both Death Troopers and Maul: Lockdown. (I’m pretty sure Death Troopers is the final book I purchased before Borders Books & Music shuttered forever).

Star Wars: Thrawn: Alliances

Star Wars: Thrawn: Alliances
Hardcover | Kindle | Audible
Sequel to Star Wars: Thrawn Book 1
Written by Timothy Zahn
Audiobook narrated by Marc Thompson
Publisher: Del Rey Books | Random House Audio
Release Date: July 24, 2018

Ever since the 1991 release of Star Wars: Heir to the Empire, I have maintained that Grand Admiral Thrawn could be the best bad guy to ever grace the Star Wars universe. Even badder than Darth Vader. After author Timothy Zahn closed out the Thrawn trilogy of books ā€“ which also includes Dark Force Rising and The Last Command ā€“ I have been chomping on the bit for more Thrawn love.

Not only did I get no additional love, I had what Iā€™d grown to love practically ripped out from under me as Thrawn and all the other characters introduced in the Expanded Universe of books and comics were declared non-canon by Lucasfilm. I was heartbroken.

Disney’s Star Wars TV slate will be expanding beyond the traditional TV broadcast format. In addition to the anime-style Star Wars: Resistance, which will air on The Disney Channel, there is also the live-action series which will air on Disney’s streaming service. We’ve known that Jon Favreau will be working on the series, but no other information about it has been provided… until now. There’s a new report that says the untitled series will have a $100 million production price tag, making it one of the most expensive shows to produce next to HBO’s Game Of Thrones and other big budget shows. Additionally, there is a rumor that says the live-action show could be about the Outer Rim planet Mandalore – the home planet of characters like Jango Fett, Boba Fett, and Sabine. More on the story below.

SDCC 2018: The Return Of ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Announced (Trailer)

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Created by Star Wars creator George Lucas, the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars first debuted back in 2008. It ran for five seasons on Cartoon Network until 2013, and ended with a sixth season known as “The Lost Missions” on Netflix in 2014.

At San Diego Comic-Con 2018, however, the show was resurrected. Dave Filoni—who developed, wrote, and was the supervising director on Clone Wars; created its successor Star Wars Rebels and the upcoming Star Wars Resistance; and is someone many fans strongly believe should be creatively involved in helping to make upcoming Star Wars movies—announced during a 10th anniversary celebration for the show that The Clone Wars is coming back.

See what Filoni had to say about the big news below, along with a trailer for the show’s return and a poster.
