Disney has a pretty huge slate of upcoming films. Not only do they have numerous live-action takes on classic animations such as Cinderella and Jungle Book scheduled for release, they also have numerous Marvel and Star Wars films in the works.
First off, in the Marvel department, there’s Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War, another Ant-Man and Inhumans. Oh, and three as-yet-untitled projects as well as Spider-Man (with Sony).
Then, on the Star Wars front, there’s Episode VIII, Episode IX, Rogue One and a Han Solo spin-off, along with a possible Boba Fett film.
If that wasn’t enough for you, Disney CEO Bob Iger has some good news for you: "There will be more [Star Wars films] after that,” he told BBC Newsbeat. “I don't know how many, I don't know how often.”
Then, when asked about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iger said: "Marvel, you're dealing with thousands and thousands of characters - that will go on forever.”
But isn't he worried fans are growing bored of seeing superhero films at the cinema?
"No, I don't think they're getting weary,” he said.
"But I think we keep raising the bar in terms of telling stories that bring them back, that excites them, that makes it feel new and that is what we do for a living.”
