    I think the 'SW "traditional" May release date' ship has sailed...

    With the announcement of E7 being in December, as StoneRiver says we should no longer expect every SW movie to come out in May. Other than that, nothing's really confirmed one way or the other yet regarding the spin-off release dates.

    Yeah, I think this situation is still pretty fluid, though when Ep. VII was pushed back I figured that likely meant '17 for the first of the spin-offs (But yeah, May is no longer a sacred date. It could be July or November or somewhere in between). I'd say beyond fleshing out story details for the spin-offs, all in-house focus is on Ep. VII at this point.

    Who'd want another Star Wars movie only 5 months after the last one? That'd be a little ridiculous.

    Spinoff #1 will come in either May 2017 or December 2016 -- depending on how the production turns out.

    I must have missed the post with the confirmation and I looked 3 times. This thread must have a glitch.

    We have REBELS to tide us over, folks. At least 5 Seasons worth. That takes us to 2019. By that time we might have 3 or 4 theatrical releases, depending on how they decide to shoot the ST. Every two years or The Hobbit model. Shoot it continuously and release them yearly.

    I share in the excitement about Rebels, but 5 seasons? Is that a guess-timate based on TCW's run, or has there been word of at least 100 confirmed episodes? I've been absent from LACWAC for a little bit, so I'm a bit out of the loop.

    This isn't the confirmation you're looking for.

    I don't want Star Wars movies five months apart. I'm actually a little more excited about the spinoffs than the sequels but still...over saturation much?

    I hadn't heard any confirmation about Rebels being five seasons either.

    No, just my speculation based on TCW and it's set 5 years before ANH. I assume they'll go right up to the film timeline.

    In all fairness, this was not a confirmation, but a CONFORMATION. Please read the thread title.:p

    Disney can afford to put out a bunch of movies a year and if they decied to do a spin-off that year, they'll make it work. It may not be May, but things could also change between now and then and those movies could move as well.

    And good riddance to that absurd fan construct.

    I would. I'll take it as so as it's finished.

    There was never any confirmation on this as far as I am aware, but I wasn't expecting one to come out in May 2016. I don't expect the new film release dates to be that closely spaced.

    Some "conformation" . . . . o_O

    I guess TOS reported this as well?

    I don't care so much about the spelling as the fact that this isn't confirmed, which is why I put it in quotes. This is just random spec, since there's been almost no official announcements about the spinoffs at all.

    My guess is that they're going to stick to Dec. releases, because the films need to be spaced out. Otherwise, the productions are going to start bumping into each other. It's possible that Pinewood is big enough to accommodate more than one Star Wars film production at a time. Anybody have any expertise on this?

    I would guess that the spinoffs will NOT be shot at Pinewood at least initially, because as you said there will start to be a production log jam. Perhaps signing a contract in NM was not for the Episodes, but rather the spinoffs? Course, if rumor is to be believed the Millennium Falcon set might come into play for more than one movie in which case filming SW in London could be like a constant thing. :p Disney signed for a number of years did they not? (10?) Does anyone remember?

    @Pro Scoundrel, Thank you! I thought so.

    So, if we do the math:

    - Iger announced at some point that SW would release movies every year starting in 2015 with Episode 7
    - We know that we currently have at least 1 trilogy already planned:

    - 2015 = Episode 7
    - 2017 = Episode 8
    - 2019 = Episode 9
    - 2016 = Spinoff 1
    - 2018 = Spinoff 2

    - 2015 +9 = 2024

    Five years to film the current trilogy . . . That leaves 5 years on the deal with Pinewood. That's enough time to do another trilogy . . . Can anyone say Episodes 10-12???? I CAN! :D

    Ok, so Pinewood is really huge! I just did some reading on it, and.........it's big. Like "That's no moon, it's a movie studio" big.

    The 007 stage alone is as big as a Death Star. I wonder if they'll be using that one. I sure hope so.
