The only thing certain about the future of Star Wars is that there is one. After Episode IX in 2019, Disney hasn’t announced what plans are beyond that. But there will be more and the CEO just said the company has again begun to discuss what the future will hold.
At the premiere of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story this weekend, Disney CEO Bob Iger said, “It is not a film that is, in any way, a political film. There are no political statements in it, at all.” That cannot be true. Star Wars is, and always has been, inherently political.

Yesterday, we learned that Disney is adding some absolutely massive Star Wars expansions to their Florida and California parks. Now here’s a video showing the highlights of Bob Iger’s keynote speech—along with more concept art that wasn’t officially released.
Fortune got to work with ILM on their December cover story, featuring Disney's CEO Bob Iger. The cover itself has Iger against a computer generated version of the Millennium Falcon. The opening photo, however, it's a shot of Iger composed over a photo of the set with the real Falcon. Pretty damn cool.
The Parr family is being called into action once again. After all, the world never stays saved.
After Warner Brothers, Universal, and Fox, have knocked their Netflix release dates back to at least four weeks, Disney has announced that it too is considering imposing a streaming content delay. Fan-freaking-tastic.
