The news that Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg are working on the projects was revealed in a briefing to investors by CEO Bob Iger.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Iger said the duo are "working on films derived from great Star Wars characters that are not part of the overall saga".
And he elaborated: "So we still plan to make Star Wars VII, VIII and IX roughly over a six-year period of time starting in 2015. But there are going to be a few other films released in that period of time, too."
