The studio’s chairman and CEO has confirmed the timetable of the upcoming trilogy

Disney Chairman/CEO Bob Iger has confirmed that Rian Johnson‘s “Star Wars: Episode VII” will hit theaters in 2017 and that “Star Wars: Episode IX” will arrive in 2019, according to Get Your Geek On.

GYGO’s David Gremillion, who is a Disney stockholder, received an annual report from the company which included Iger’s statement about the “Star Wars” release dates.

“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,” wrote Iger.

Disney will release J.J. Abrams‘ “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” the seventh installment in the blockbuster sci-fi franchise, on Dec. 18. It is expected to be one of the highest-grossing movies of all-time.
