In any case, the Star Wars movies may only be available on Netflix anywhere for a limited time. Disney is launching its own streaming platform in 2019, and it is expected that the Star Wars movies will be exclusively available there. The studio has also announced plans for a live-action Star Wars TV show.
The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15. There has been plenty of promotional activity in the last few weeks, including new trailers, images, and posters. Unsurprisingly, the movie is expected to have a huge opening weekend at the box office. Early first-weekend projections have predicted that the film will make $215 million in the US over its first three days. While that would be below The Force Awakens‘ first-weekend haul of $247 million, it would still be the second-biggest of all time, ahead of Jurassic World‘s $208 million opening in 2015.
In addition, Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is to write and direct a new Star Wars trilogy. Work on the next set of movies will begin after the release of JJ Abrams’ Episode IX in 2019.
