    Good Lord. Does Disney ever learn?

    Disney had previously hinted that perhaps Disney had tried to do too much with Star Wars and it could be time to just pull back a little. In a recent interview with The NY Times Iger once again states that perhaps they did try to move too fast with this franchise, but he still feels like the talent is there to make great stories moving forward.

    “I just think that we might’ve put a little bit too much in the marketplace too fast.” But, he adds, “I think the storytelling capabilities of the company are endless because of the talent we have at the company, and the talent we have at the company is better than it’s ever been, in part because of the influx of people from Fox.”

    “Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so many years of our own lives.”

      Not only is it too much, but I'm staring at those feature film directors kind of hoping that they aren't booted and replaced in the middle of production.

        Granted, only The Bad Batch & Vision are confirmed for 2021. With The Mandalorian S3 included, that's only 3 Star Wars series for 2021.

        Marvel, on the other hand, has 6Disney+ Miniseries/Series and 3 in-house films slated for 2021. And lets not forget the Sony-Marvel produced Spider-man threquel movie!

        Honestly, the fact that Disney is somehow planning 6 Marvel movies for 2022, has me more concerned for Marvel.
