Disney president Bob Iger has made it clear that the company's plans for Star Wars will take the franchise about "a galaxy long, long ago" into the far future. Speaking at Goldman Sachs Communacopia (via TheWrap), Iger said Disney's Star Wars plans extend past their previously announced 2020 films, and into "2021 and beyond."
“I had a meeting yesterday with Kathy Kennedy and we mapped out - well, we reviewed - the Star Wars plans that we have ’til 2020,” Iger explained. “We have movies in development for Star Wars ’til then, and we started talking about what we’re going to do in 2021 and beyond. So, she’s not just making a Star Wars movie, she’s making a Star Wars universe, of sorts."
Star Wars: Episode IX is currently scheduled for release on May 24, 2019, making it the Star Wars film with the latest confirmed release date. Another Star Wars "anthology" film, in the vein of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, is scheduled for 2020, though no details on that project have been confirmed.
