Disney boss Bob Iger recently told Bloomberg: “We will take a pause, some time, and reset because the Skywalker saga comes to an end with this ninth movie.
“There will be other Stars Wars movies, but there will be a bit of a hiatus.”
But why a hiatus? Was it just the box office disappointment in Solo, or maybe also the fan backlash to The Last Jedi?
Well, now Kennedy has revealed exactly why, speaking with Empire after the Episode IX panel at Star Wars Celebration on Friday.
James Dyer revealed on the Empire podcast: “Funnily enough I asked Kathleen Kennedy this very question and she was quite candid.
“She said they learned their lessons from Solo; that doing two films in less than a year wasn’t something the fans were prepared to accept.
“And she’s hands up… ‘we made a mistake with that.’”
