Bob Iger dropped some official news on the Star Wars cinematic universe in regards to the release windows for a few of the untitled projects, as well as the recently announced The Mandalorian and Grogu movie. While he didn’t provide titles, or specifics, he did reiterate that The Mandalorian and Grogu film will be the first Star Wars movie to hit theaters from the announced slate of films.

When you couple that information with Disney’s official film schedule, then one has to make the assumption then that The Mandalorian and Grogu movie will be releasing in May of 2026, and then one of the untitled films will release in December of that year. This will more than likely be the Rey movie, but no official word has been put out, and the film hasn’t even started principal photography. That would then leave December of 2027 for another one of the untitled films to release based on the roadmap embedded below.

Based on how Star Wars films have been treated recently at Lucasfilm I’m not sure if we can still buy into this plan, but Disney’s CEO spoke about it on an earnings call, so for now it’s at least the concrete direction the company would like to take. It seems a bit aggressive, especially coming off a seven year absence of Star Wars on the silver screen, and the last time Disney did a two Star Wars movie in a year plan it failed with Solo not realizing its full box office potential.

In addition to the movie news, Iger also revealed Disney’s new partnership with Epic games both as a major investor in the company, and to leverage their gaming expertise for Disney’s various pop culture licenses. You can learn more over on Disney’s site, and you can check out a trailer for it below.

Nick and I will talk more about Disney, Star Wars movies, and Epic games on next week’s episode of the SWTS, so don’t forget to tune into the Star Wars Time Show on a weekly basis via our podcast platforms or via YouTube if you prefer the livestream angle.
