How Disney will react to ‘Star Wars’ remake
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the Disney-owned studio is expected to approve a sequel to Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens at a meeting of the board on Friday.
The publication has also learned that the studio has no plans to release another Star Wars movie after this one, which is expected in 2019.
The new trilogy is being produced by the original trilogy producers, Lawrence Kasdan and Carrie Fisher, along with producer Gary Kurtz, who is also writing the script for the first film.
The first film was released in December 2015 and is the first time the Star Wars franchise has been made in a live-action way.
The film’s biggest star, Daisy Ridley, played the iconic role of Princess Leia.
