Star wars the Force Awakens is still in theatres and Disney has already begun the media rush for the first Star Wars standalone film, Rogue One. Rogue One is set to premiere December 15th, 2016. Is it too soon? Are Star Wars films being packed too close together? Disney’s take on the Marvel franchise would indicate that this is right move for the Star wars franchise. What do you think? Are you still reeling in the wake of The Force Awakens or are you ready freak out over Rogue One?

I actually think this release schedule is awesome, but only because Rogue One and all the other stand alone movies are not related to the main episodes in any way. I think that's key. I don't think people are going to get sick of Star Wars anytime soon, tossing one movie out a year should work well for Disney, particularly if hey are good films. Things may have to slow down if a movie flops. Time will tell how it all plays out.
