Disney-Run LucasFilm Will Churn Out Two Or Three Films A Year Says Kathleen Kennedy


Upon finding out Disney was purchasing LucasFilm, we knew we’d at least be getting three new Star Wars movies. A few other ideas were floated around but it was probably silly of us to think the projects would be limited. President of LucasFilm, Kathleen Kennedy recently went on record with a pretty lofty goal – two to three films a year. 

The news is from an interview Kennedy did with Entertainment Weekly. The full story will be on stands tomorrow but a few items have been released. For instance, Kennedy says the plan is for the company to produce “two or three films a year.”

Now, obviously they aren’t going to release three new Star Wars films in the same year, that would be silly. So what else are they planning? Well, Indiana Jones 5 is constantly on again/off again but with Disney now invested, odds are the likelyhood of it getting made is now greater. But lots and lots of Star Wars? I suppose so. It was 16 years between Return of the Jedi and Phantom Menace and then three years between each of the second trilogy so it’s possible we’ll continue to see at least one Star Wars film a year starting in 2015. But since the only info we know right now is ”two or three films a year,” it could mean anything from home video releases, film expansions of video game properties, or reboots and remakes of past LucasFilm projects like Willow or Labyrinth. Or yes, entirely new ideas.

Either way, we’re going to see a lot from LucasFilm down the road. What would you like to see?

    While it might be cool to see a Willow sequel, I’d prefer it if they focused on new projects. In an ideal world I would like to see Lucasfilm become more like Pixar, in terms of putting out creative and imaginative films that don’t talk down to the audience. My greatest fear is that we only get new Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies for the next twenty years.

    Oh I love the idea of a Willow sequel!

    A want Labyrinth, but at the same time I don’t. Maybe a sequel? We’d have to have David Bowie do at least the soundtrack, though, or I would refuse to see it. It would be alright if he is unable to play Jareth (I’d be extremely upset, but still) But I could not watch the movie if David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly are not involved in it somehow.

    Something new instead of a remake would be good.

    Sound great. I’d really love to see any franchise told with the same continuity details that Marvel Studios has managed. It’d be a great throwback to the old serials that influenced many of Lucasfilms’ projects.

    Hmm, anyone know if they bought the rights to Monkey Island with Lucasfilms?
