Recently, Wired did a massive feature on the future of Star Wars as a franchise. They essentially revealed that there are plans to make a Star Wars movie every year for the foreseeable future. Here's the direct quote from the article:
The company intends to put out a new Star Wars movie every year for as long as people will buy tickets. Let me put it another way: If everything works out for Disney, and if you are (like me) old enough to have been conscious for the first Star Wars film, you will probably not live to see the last one. It’s the forever franchise.
We will never run out of Star Wars content, it seems. Good news for Star Wars. Good news for humanity as a whole.
Here are seven things that will probably come to an end before Star Wars is finished...
Millenials may no longer be on the planet by the time the last Star Wars film comes out. Don't even get me started on older generations. They'll be long gone as well.
2. The planet
Global warming is real. This means that the planet might literally burn into a crisp before Star Wars is over. Hopefully, we'll have a way to get to Mars by then and can do immense damage to a different planet.
3. The NFL
I'm not sure if Star Wars will last longer than football, but I am pretty certain it'll last longer than the NFL. Scandal after scandal has the popular sports league in a state of chaos, and I can't imagine it'll last much more than three decades or so. Star Wars will still be going strong by then.
4. Dogs will no longer be more popular pets than cats
Cats are on the rise. And I think they'll eventually overtake dogs as the best pet to have. I think that we're going to see more cats on our streets than dogs before Star Wars ends. Just a thought.
McDonald's may serve breakfast all day now, and probably feels untouchable, but the massive food franchise will probably end before Star Wars.
We're definitely running out of cows before we run out of ideas for Star Wars movies. This is a fact.
7. Obama's black hair
This probably seems obvious, but President Barack Obama will not have any black hair left by the time the final Star Wars movie is released. He'll have only white and grey hair.
Side note: I can't wait to see the silver fox version of Obama.
People won't stop hating on him, though. No, I don't think that will ever happen. Sorry, Star Wars.
Go see [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](tag:711158) December 18th!
