We already knew this. The D&D movie was scheduled for December 2022. It's unclear what is replacing it at the moment.

Star Wars doesn't work as something that can come out every 2 years until infinity, it was always an "event" franchise and you lose that if you release too many movies.

Expanding into television will serve the IP well and let them tell stories without having so much pressure on them.

Thats probably a good thing. They tried to give us too much starwars at once and solo proved that audiences have a limit. One movie every few years is fine, we dont need one or two starwars films every year

So the Avatar sequels were delayed to serve the schedule of D&D’s Star Wars films and now they’re going on hiatus.

Fuck.

Good. Disney already did the franchise a disservice by cobbling the sequel trilogy together in a rush to make their money back on it.

Not really, it's always been a serialized franchise with 3 years minimum in between instalments (and nothing in between) and decade+ between trilogies for the first 6 films.

Trying to change it now into a "every 1-2 years" franchise is different and probably wasn't going to work.
The Clone Wars literally existed......there was a whole universe buit...NVM

I'd be fine with one cinematic trilogy per decade, released annually a la Lord of the Rings.

New film for summer 2023 with Jon Favreau as writer/director, Fiege co-producing it, and a tone more in line with Guardians of the Galaxy (more jokes/contemporary humor) is what I expect. New characters so they have no established rules.

I hope they get the same director to direct all the movie in the next trilogy and go to a different time period preferably old republic. Extremely disliked all the movies in the prequel trilogy hopefully next one will be better.

Hopefully the next trilogy they'll get a decent writer and write the WHOLE THING before making them and don't just "wing it" so they have no idea where they are going or have someone else come in to make a sequel in a trilogy and fuck it all up.

I mean you'd think that you'd want to at least know where the storyline is going to go and the major story beats before you start filming the first movie
