So, Bob Iger has seen The Force Awakens…
With Marvel firing on all cylinders, Disney is also about to reboot the “Star Wars” franchise—with “The Force Awakens,” set for release in December. It’s the first of three films being produced since Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012 for $4 billion.
“I’ve seen the film without most of its special effects and without most of its music,” Iger said. “I can’t wait for the world to see it.”
“We’re making standalone films which we’ve announced, two,” he said—referring to a project exploring the backstory of a young Han Solo and “Star Wars: Rogue One” involving a heist surrounding Death Star plans.
The six previously released “Star Wars” films have grossed more than $4.4 billion at the worldwide box office since 1977.
