“There are five Star Wars film – four more with Episode VII: The Force Awakens – that are in varying stages of development and production”. 

We have known for some time that besides the new trilogy we were getting three anthology films, Rogue One (which comes out later this year), a young Han Solo film and a Boba Fett film.

When asked about the future of his other big property Marvel Studios he said “Marvel you’re dealing with thousands and thousands of characters – that will go on forever.’

So there you have it, tons of Star Wars and Marvel to look foreword to.
