Disney plans three Lucasfilm flicks EVERY YEAR

May the yawns be with you

Disney plans to recoup the $4 billion it recently spent on the Lucasfilm acquisition by producing two or three films each year.

While another outing for the increasingly geriatric Indiana Jones is on the way, it's very likely Star Wars Episode VII and the two films already said to follow will merely be the first of an avalanche of Jedi flicks.

By the end of the decade, Star Wars could be more watered down than the drinks served in a backstreet casino.

Pee-nuts?

The news comes by way of Lucas' successor, Kathleen Kennedy, quoted in the next edition of Entertainment Weekly. She says the company aims to make "two or three films a year".

There's no specific reference to how many of those will be set in the Star Wars universe. For all we know, there could be plans for several Red Tails or THX-1138 sequels.

Still, if just one of those annual movies is set in the Galactic Empire, even die-hard fans would probably agree Disney's Star Wars overkill would really be taking the Mickey. ®
