  • Disney moves 'Avatar' sequels, announces new 'Star Wars' films

Three new Star Wars films are on the slate and they are going to come out not long after the nine-film saga concludes with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hitting theaters this December. The biggest shock is a brand new Star Wars trilogy to follow The Rise of Skywalker. It's not clear if the three "Star Wars" movies are part of a trilogy or if they are spinoffs of the main Skywalker saga.

The company announced on Tuesday its producing three more untitled Star Wars films that'll begin to debut in theaters in 2022. Unlike its Star Wars and Avatar arms, Disney is apparently choosing to be conservative about making superhero release-date promises any further than that.

Well after reporting yesterday about the second season of The Mandalorian and how exciting this year is going to be for Star Wars, we get more great news from Disney.

The change comes after Disney executives feared Solo: A Star Wars Story underperformed because it came out just a few months after The Last Jedi, overloading fans who may have grown tired of the Force-feeding. Sam Worthington, who portrays the role of Jake Sully in the first "Avatar", has revealed that the story of its sequel will pick up eight years after the first movie. The first of those to arrive will be "Avatar 2", which has been delayed a year and is now set to arrive on December 17, 2021.

Some released in 2019 may already be familiar to you, like "Stars Wars: The Rise of Skywalker", which is out on December 20; "Frozen 2", out November 22; and "The Lion King", out July 19.

The Walt Disney Studios has unveiled its upcoming slate following the recent acquisition of the Fox film studios, including changes to previously dated films and a number of major additions. By 2019, following the Disney/20th Century Fox merger, the status of The New Mutants became nebulous. We can probably assume that most (if not all) of those will be taken by Black Panther 2, Doctor Strange 2, Captain Marvel 2, Black Widow, Shang-Chi, and The Eternals.
