Disney Announces Three New Star Wars Films, Delays Avatar Sequels

Disney announced on Tuesday that it had slated three more Star Wars films to come after The Rise of Skywalker on December 20.

As for Marvel, we already know what some of those live-action films will be, although we don't know which will get which release date. Attendees at this year's Star Wars Celebration in Chicago got a special sneak peek at what these kyber crystals and lightsaber hilts will look like, and Polygon gave us an in-depth photoshoot of the wonderful merchandise!

The releases of the four Avatar and three Star Wars films will alternate, with one released every Christmas between 2021 and 2027.

Three more Star Wars movies are on their way, Disney has confirmed.

Disney and Marvel's "Avengers: Endgame" has stormed into a historic territory, earning $2.19 billion worldwide in less than two weeks to become the number two film of all time, according to industry watcher Exhibitor Relations.

The company also announced that there will be two Marvel films next year on May 1 and November 6. But don't worry-you'll be able to stream all million hours of the hefty two-part Avengers movie back-to-back on one platform within a year of Disney+'s launch. What could the other films be?

Now that Disney acquired Fox, it's also highly likely they'll reboot the Fantastic Four and X-Men series. Fox 2000's The Art of Racing in the Rain moves up to August 9, and Fox Searchlight's Ready or Not will release on August 23, while three films move to later dates: Ad Astra (9/20/19), The New Mutants (4/3/20), and Artemis Fowl (5/29/20). After years in limbo, that movie will see the light of day on April 3, 2020. The movie which happens to be a sequel to James Cameron's Avatar which was released in the year 2009, was initiallyb scheduled to be released on December 18, 2020.

Walt Disney Studios issued a release unveiling its upcoming slate from the end of May through December 2027 after its acquisition of Fox film studios, which included changes to some previously stated release dates and new additions.

These "projects" are reportedly the titles of the sequel films.

So now with this announcement and all the Disney+ news, fans are looking to be getting plenty of content for the next few years.
