Item: 'Star Wars' films to come yearly starting in 2015

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Disney is turning "Star Wars" films into an annual summer ritual.

Walt Disney Co. chairman Alan Horn announced Wednesday that the studio would release films set in a galaxy far, far away every year starting in 2015. The parade of films will start with "Star Wars: Episode VII," directed by J.J. Abrams. Horn said the studio will then alternate films in the new "Star Wars" trilogies with spin off films drawn from the same universe.

He made the announcement during a presentation at the movie theater convention CinemaCon in Las Vegas. Disney announced plans to reboot the space franchise after buying Lucasfilm Ltd. last year.
How long before franchise fatigue will set in? One lesson history teaches us more often than any other is that we never learn from history.
There is no such thing as franchise fatigue. There's only "many bad films in a row" fatigue. There is no such thing as an "thousand absolutely awesome films in a row" fatigue.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
