Disney is already planning sequels to "Star Wars: Episode IX" and has teased that the franchise will go on for 15 more years.

Disney CEO Bob Iger says there is a future for Star Wars beyond 2019, reported Contactmusic.

"We're starting to talk about what could happen after Episode IX. We've got a creative team actually thinking about what could be another decade and a half of Star Wars stories.

It's kind of mind-blowing spending an afternoon with a creative team thinking about that," he says.

Iger adds that the Skywalkers will still feature heavily in "The Last Jedi," despite the fact that General Leia actress Carrie Fisher tragically died last December.

"I've seen (The Last Jedi). It's quite good. It picks up where VII left off. We're really excited about it. I can't disclose much about it because that's not what we do right now – until we're ready," he says.
