Another Star Wars spin off confirmed for 2020

23 September 2016, 18:05

Los Angeles  - A new Star Wars spin off has been confirmed for 2020.

Disney CEO Bob Iger admitted he met with a writer for a new movie in the sci-fi franchise, and there are further plans in place for films "beyond" then.

He is quoted by Comic Book Movie as saying: "I had a meeting yesterday with (producers) Kathy Kennedy and we mapped out - well, we reviewed - the Star Wars plans that we have until 2020.

"We have movies in development for Star Wars until then, and we started talking about what we're going to do in 2021 and beyond."

The new film is likely to be part of the Anthology spin off series which is bringing fans Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'later this year, and an as yet untitled Han Solo movie due for 2018.

Rumours circulating the franchise suggest that the 2020 project could centre around intergalactic bounty hunter Boba Fett.

Bob, 65, also described the upcoming Rogue One spin off as "experimental", playing down expectations that it would match the $2bn box office haul achieved by previous film Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

He said: "We never felt it would do the level that Force Awakens did.

"(But) the level of interest (in Rogue One) is as high as it was for Force Awakens. It's really interesting in terms of Star Wars storytelling. Star Wars has only been told as a saga, and this is a moment in time ... we love what we've seen."

Star Wars: Episode VIII is to be released in 2017 and Episode IX in 2019
