    Sure.

    But just as "Solo" was not going to ever do well, all Star Wars movies that are part of the Skywalker saga featuring those old familiar characters are a guaranteed box office success no matter who is producing them provided they aren't blind drunk incompetent.

    Ha. Loved DeNiro in that film. Hilarious.

    And of course the main reason is that fans just didn’t want a Solo film.

    Disney CEO Bob Iger says #StarWars feature films will go on "into a hiatus" following #RiseofSkywalker. Says there will be lots of activity on TV front, mentions 3 series in the works for #DisneyPlus.

    10:58 PM - Nov 7, 2019

    Star Wars Movies Going On "Hiatus," More Disney Plus Shows Are In The Works

    First and foremost, Iger confirmed that the film side of Star Wars will be going "into a hiatus" after the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Following the announcement that former Game of Thrones showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff were parting ways with the franchise, rather than writing and directing a new trilogy of films. What this means for the trilogy of movies being developed by Rian Johnson is anybody's guess.

    I still think the Rian Johnson trilogy was put on ice as soon as the fan backlash against The Last Jedi began. They just aren't saying anything. What does this mean for the Feige movie?

    I forgot about Feige's movie. It's too bad if they pause everything for too long.

    Feige will get to do his movie -- he is Disney's most important producer and they're not going to take that away from him -- but he also has tons of other projects in the works, especially now that he's the head of all things Marvel and not just the film side. This means Disney can keep him busy at Marvel until they're ready for Star Wars to come back.

    The "hiatus" is not new. Iger has been saying that for months. That's why there aren't any Star Wars movies on the calendar after The Rise of Skywalker until 2022. The question now is whether or not the hiatus will extend longer than originally planned with the exit of Benioff and Weiss, but it was always built into the schedule.

    This hiatus is new. What Iger meant with the old hiatus was that there will be no new Star Wars movies until Benioff and Weiss Star Wars movie in 2022. When he says now that there is a hiatus it means the current plan has changed. With Benioff and Weiss gone, there will be no Star Wars movie in 2022. There will be more delays. We have to wait more.

    Iger did not say that. Find me where he said that there won't be a Star Wars movie in 2022 and then we'll talk. The hiatus thing is the same thing as he's been saying for a while.

    Disney still has the release dates on the calendar for Star Wars movies for December 2022, 2024 and 2026. They might not end up using them for that, but they're still there, which indicates that Disney is not willing to make an official change just yet.

    We're just going to have to wait and see what happens.

    It should be the other way around. Find me where he said that there will be a new Star Wars movie in 2022. The default is, they have not announced a new movie so there wouldn't be a movie until they announce it.

    But also the link for him saying there won't be a movie is the news I posted. He says feature films will go on "into a hiatus". He just said it so he means the current plan has changed, no movie in 2022. Otherwise he wouldn't have said it.

    What is the latest on the Rian Johnson trilogy? Has it been confirmed dead?

    Pound for pound I think The Last Jedi is the best Star Wars film since ROTJ...and if you take away the powerful nostalgic factor that film has for me, it is probably better. I have watched the Last Jedi so many times I actually lost count. It just amazes me that TLJ is so bold, dynamic, and satisfying.
    I would give anything to have a Rian Johnson trilogy back in the mix.

    Couldn’t agree more. If Rian can put together TLJ from what he had to work with from TFA, then imagine what he could do with a clean slate. I’m hoping more than anything SW related that Rian will get his trilogy.

    I would like TLJ if it was just a space fantasy film that was in no way connected to Star Wars. I hate the choices it made with the Star Wars characters. That being said I would be in favor of the Johnson trilogy if it was completely separated from the current Star Wars universe.

    The other day Variety said that Iger stated the films are going "into a hiatus."

    No. There haven't been any official announcements made about that in quite some time. Johnson says he's still talking with Lucasfilm about it, but we don't have any specifics.

    It’s sounding more and more dire for the Johnson proposed trilogy.

    I think it’s dead.

    And I think there will be a hard reset by Disney after ROS for all Star Wars films proposed and or in development.

    I'm not arguing that the Johnson trilogy might be dead. I hope not, but it's possible. But if it is, it has not been confirmed as such by Lucasfilm yet.

    Most likely. Too bad Solo did poorly. I think that the failure has put a fear in Disney of a brand they thought bulletproof.
