Bob Iger Confirms Two Year Gap Between Star Wars VIII ans IXDisney CEO Bob Iger took the opportunity at a shareholders meeting to confirm to the interested party and the rest of the world the (rough) dates for 'Star Wars VIII' and 'Star Wars IX.'
"As one of the few people allowed to visit the set during filming….and one of the fewer who’s seen most of the footage…I can assure the millions of Star Wars fans who have spent the last decade hoping for a new movie this one will be worth the wait. And it’s only the beginning of a new era of exceptional Star Wars storytelling; next year we’ll release our first standalone movie based on these characters, followed by Star Wars: Episode VIII in 2017, and we’ll finish this trilogy with Episode IX in 2019."
It's no surprise really as we kind of worked this our with a two year gap between movies (Star Wars The Force Awakens opens in cinemas on December 18th 2015.) In the quote he also confirmed a standalone move next year 'based on these characters.' Does he mean a character or two from The Force Awakens?
