Disney, Lucasfilm announce May 2019 release

It breaks with the recent tradition of releasing Star Wars movies in December, the most recent one being prequel Rogue One.

And as we would have hoped, the beloved Princess Leia will appear in the ninth installment of the Star Wars franchise-without the use of CGI, which was reported earlier this month. All of the Star Wars films released prior to Disney's acquisition were released in summer, so this is actually a return to form for the franchise.

While the world eagerly anticipates December and the arrival of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, there are already eyes on the final part of the New Trilogy.

Leia will already appear in this year's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which comes out December 17, since filming had wrapped before her death.

The studio made the announcement Tuesday that the sequel to its mega-popular animated hit Frozen would hit theaters November 27, 2019, while Episode IX, director Colin Trevorrow's conclusion to the current Star Wars trilogy, would arrive May 24.

Three major feature films from Disney and Lucasfilms have confirmed release dates: Star Wars: Episode IX, Frozen 2, and Indiana Jones.

Yesterday the word hit the interwebs that 'Star Wars: Episode 9, ' 'Indiana Jones 5, ' and More Coming Soon!

A new Indiana Jones movie was originally scheduled to be released in 2019 as well, but Disney has now pushed it back to July 10, 2020.

While a similar move is possible this time around, it is likely Disney wants to keep "Holiday 2019" reserved for another of its own big hitters - Frozen 2. The upcoming movie has been pushed back from November 2018 to November 25, 2020 - a full two-year delay.
