Lucasfilm making 2-3 movies a year?

According to ScreenRant, Lucasfilm will release 2-3 movies a year along with Star Wars Episodes VII-IX. So what does this mean exactly.  So far Disney has held their cards real close so not much info has been released.  Episode VII will be released in 2015 possibly in May (here is an article comicbook.com going into more speculation about the release date).  As for the other 2-3 movies are they going to be Star Wars or one of the other possibilities in the Lucasfilm catalogue.

With the success of the Avenger’s Saga could they apply that same format to the Star Wars Universe.  2-3 movies a year would be a lot for just one title so I am sure you can expect something more than Star Wars.  As of Nov 15 IMDB Indiana Jones 5 has been listed with Spielberg at the helm and Harrison Ford reprising Indy.

From here it is pure speculation on my part from articles that I have seen. A Yoda movie was mentioned 7 years ago by Lucas but never went into production.  One of the benefits of the Star Wars franchise is that they are more CGI or puppet characters than human, allowing for a broader range for that character’s growth. It’s a lot easier to make a puppet or CGI character look younger than a human.  This would also fit into the Avenger’s style back story.  Who has never been curious what Yoda looked like when he was younger?

Another movie idea I saw was one for Boba Fett.  He’s dead some of you are saying but let’s look back at the scene.  He fell into the Sarlac Pit, however he could have survived the fall and I quote C-3PO “In his belly, you will find a new definition of pain and suffering as you are slowly digested over a thousand years”.  One thousand years, safe to say he could be burned some by the acid in it’s digestive system but would not have immediately died.  With that out of the way, according to ScreenRantJoe Johnston has been wanting to do a Boba Fett movie for quite some time. This story broke over a year ago, interesting now how one of the creators for Boba Fett and director of one of the Avengers side stories is now in talks with Disney about a Star Wars film.  It also brings me back to Star Wars: Underworld (which is now in production), has Daniel Logan cast as Boba Fett. Once again this is all speculation but somewhat valid none the less.
