"Star Wars": Three untitled new films announced following "The Rise of Skywalker"

Disney announced on Tuesday that after this final chapter in the latest trilogy is released on December 20, three more "Star Wars" films will hit theaters every other year starting in 2022.

Disney-Fox released its recently updated release schedule Tuesday morning, announcing dates for three new Star Wars movies along with a bunch of Avatar sequels that no one asked for.

Disney's recent pledge that Star Wars would take a theatrical break after this year's Rise of Skywalker has been confirmed by this schedule, and it's a remarkable one: three years.

Variety reports Walt Disney Studios' purchase of 21st Century Fox film and TV assets is impacting one of Fox's biggest assets: "Avatar".

In 2022, Disney does have an untitled Star Wars film slated for release on December 16, 2022. Avatar 2 will arrive on December 17, 2021, as opposed to its initial December 18, 2020 release date.

That means fans eager to see what happens after the end of the Skywalker saga will face a lengthy three-year hiatus before the franchise's next chapter.

Markets react to Donald Trump's China tariff threats
The US government hit China with the most extensive tariffs, starting a trade war between the world's two largest economies. The discussions remain focused toward making substantial progress on important structural issues and rebalancing the U.S.

Europeans Concern as US Lets Iran Oil Trade Wavers Expire
Since taking the pledge as the 45th president of the US, Donald Trump had been signalling to put sanctions on Iran. Meanwhile, Iran has refused to bow down, terming US' recent sanctions as "economic terrorism".

Trump threatens to increase tariffs on China
"325 Billions Dollars of additional goods sent to us by China remain untaxed, but will be shortly, at a rate of 25%". Those duties were set to rise to 25 per cent on March 1, but Trump delayed that as talks continued.

Additional sequels also were pushed back, meaning a proposed Avatar 5 won't debut until 2027.

The streaming site will also have all Disney Channel shows and Original Movies, as well as new spinoff shows such as The Mandalorian, which takes place in the Star Wars universe.

Dark Phoenix opens June 7, while New Mutants has been bumped yet again to April 3 of next year.

What all of these films have in common is that they were well on their way to being made at the time that Disney acquired Fox. Fox 2000's The Art of Racing in the Rain moves up to August 9, and Fox Searchlight's Ready or Not will release on August 23, while three films move to later dates: Ad Astra (9/20/19), The New Mutants (4/3/20), and Artemis Fowl (5/29/20).

Whether Disney knows for sure which movie it will release during Thanksgiving weekend of 2022 and just wants to keep it under wraps, or has earmarked "Untitled Disney Animation 11/23/22" as a placeholder, doesn't matter.
