I find Kylo 100x more interesting than I ever found Anikan. Vader is cool/great obviously, but even he did not have it in him to seize power from the emperor, even if he did have it in him to kill him. Ren is interesting because it seems he is more committed to his own power than to the dark side (or light side obviously). In that sense, he could be much more difficult or much more easy to "turn". It will be interesting to see how it goes.

That said: I feel there is far too much for them to wrap up in one film. Part 3 should really be a 2 parter.

I’m agree with that completely. Annakin as they always say mor Shakespearean, so he had an arc. Ren has a lot of movement and goes nowhere with,

He has killed Han Solo, Snoke,and basically Luke, and his role still hasn’t been defined

I predict that Episode IX will be yet another derivative and Disneyfied insult to the Star Wars legacy.

David Beinoff and Dan Weiss (Game of Thrones show runners) have been hired for the next SW trilogy or series of films (perhaps the same trilogy that Rian Johnson was going to create but not confirmed).

These will have nothing to do with the Skywalker saga.

Nothing at all? That is a bold move. So this is when the box office fortunes will seriously dwindle. Having that 40 year nostalgia is so important for these films to do well. Ok, it will still have the brand name, but its the characters that people show up for.

It’s separate from the Saga series & Rian Johnson’s trilogy.
So we are getting 3 different sets of film/movie series.
Also Disney CEO also said they are working on multiple sets of tv series.

Well, they're certainly not afraid of the potential of franchise burnout...I'll give them that.

they should be. they had three straight $1B WW films so they feel like they're fine...but that can easily change.

Rogue One benefit from the fact that it was the first spin-off so felt more "fresh" and had the Vader connection and was tied to OT fairly closely. The spinoffs going forward will feel less fresh and likely won't be connected to OT.

Now, I think an average SW film will still make a lot of money but the casual audience that has helped the last three SW films may not always show up.

I don't think Solo is a lock for 700m WW and I don't think any of Rians movies or these movies are either. They all can easily do sub-350m domestic.

It looks like Disney will be happy with collecting $600-$800m WW for there films (after IX) going forward.

That would also be because they just want a slew of SW films to put up on their streaming service.

In the 38 years before 2015 - there were only 6 SW films in existence. By next year there will be 11. By 2025 wouldnt be surprised if that jumped up to 15 SW films.

I totally agree with all these points. Disney doesn't need the spinoffs to always make a billion worldwide. It'd be great but it's not necessary just like it wasn't/isn't necessary with Marvel films. Also, these new films will be a great building block to their streaming service along with all the other properties/brands they have. Obviously I'm gonna have to subscribe to this thing since I'm sure it will also have original Star Wars content you can't get elsewhere like that Star Trek show on CBS All Access (though I haven't subbed to that yet).

Disney is turning what was known for years as the king box office franchise into just any other franchise. Its grosses will look no different than whatever Marvel or Fast movie is playing also that summer. Never again will you Star Wars fans get excitement for anticipating a new chapter in the saga. A 6-month wait is not nearly enough time for build-up as Lucas' ten year and fifteen year waits were.

Um. You can watch the films every 10 or 15 years. I'm glad we don't have to wait 10+ years for new content.

If given a choice no fanbase wants to wait 10-15 years for the next installment of something they really love.
Thank god I was born in the right time. :D OT,PT,ST, anthology, future trilogies, animated & live tv series

the slight difference however is that MCU got strong OS and Fast is one of the best OS franchises ever. TFA did well OS but RO was average and TLJ had a bigger DOM share than TFA did.

they're still profitable as fuck for sure but I think the way things are going, an average MCU property will be more valuable than the average SW property after IX comes out.

Harrison Ford was in his early 70's when he came back. And he actually did a decent amount of action. I doubt Billy Dee would do much action. I don't think his age will matter.

Well, he looks pretty dead. Hope it's not a disappointment for his fans. He looks too old.
