Episode VII begins annual summers of Star Wars films, swapping ‘Saga’ with spinoffs
Bleeding Cool reports from Cinema Con in Las Vegas that Disney will release one Star Wars movie every summer starting in 2015 with Episode VII. Main-line trilogy or “Saga” installments will alternate with previously announced “spinoff” stories featuring favorite characters and set “up and down the continuity.”
This seems to confirm that Episode VII will make its originally announced 2015 release window, which some considered to be in doubt when J.J. Abrams took the director’s chair.
