Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger stressed to investors the company's first standalone film in the Star Wars series, '"Star Wars: Rogue One," is not expected to match the nearly $2.1 billion globally that "The Force Awakens" made, according a report from Variety.
The Disney chief said the media giant never expected it to match box office returns of the Awakens movie but, he added, "The level of interest is as high as it was" for the previous film, Variety noted.
Earlier this year, reports surfaced that said Rogue One may be in trouble, after executives asked for extensive reshooting. The film's director Gareth Edwards later said the reshoots were always a part of the plan.
Iger also discussed a list of Star Wars films planned for the next decade, including a Han Solo origin story, Variety reports.
