Star Wars EP5 KEY 392 R 450

In just two years, the talk of the impending summer may not be a Marvel superhero but a new “Star Wars” film.

Variety and the Associated Press report that Disney Studios head Alan Horn said today that the seventh “Star Wars” movie, being directed by J.J. Abrams, would be a summer 2015 release with the other movies due in 2017 and 2019.

Horn, who appeared at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, said the studio will alternate films in the new trilogy with spin-off films drawn from the same universe.
