As we all prepare for the debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, news of two new offerings came out of the Disney Company Annual Meeting. First up is a new spinoff titled Rogue One. At this point the only announced actress is Felicity Jones. There hasn’t been anything said about the story or other roles. This film is set to be released on December 16, 2016. And, Star Wars Episode VIII is set for release on May 26, 2017 with Rian Johnson in the director’s chair. And, again, no other information has been given about the story or who will be playing in this next chapter of the Star Wars franchise.
Frozen 2 has also been announced (BIG SURPRISE). The original film making team will be at the helm of this newest production. However, there are no details about the original cast, songwriters, or story. So, we shall have to wait and see!
And finally, Disney CEO Bob Iger let it slip that Disney’s Hollywood Studios WILL be undergoing a name change. However, he said nothing about the new name or the timing of this change. There has been some speculation that the new name could be Disney’s Florida Adventure to reflect it’s California counterpart.
All this to say, we have few details, but some excitement coming along within the Disney Galaxy!
