A few years ago there was little hope for new Star Wars, now the fans of Star Wars Universe are delighted. Starting in 2015 there will be a new Star Wars film every Christmas for the foreseeable future. With the beginning of a new trilogy being released on the odd years (2015/2017/2019) and spin-offs on the even years (2016/2018/2020.) Unless something changes, these movies will continue to delight fans and break records. One of the most anticipated movies of 2016 is Star Wars: Rogue One which is being billed as a Star Wars “war movie” with a new directorial and story telling style. The plot is set to be a spin-off so it will not effect the story lines from the previous films. Let’s hope Star Wars: Rogue One is as much fun as Star Wars: The Force Awakens was last year!

People are also getting very excited to see Margot Robbie as the psychopathic and sexy Harley Quinn. The premise of Suicide Squad is that the villains are being put together for the common good, so it will be the first true “Super-Anti-Hero” movie.
