Disney has announced it will release five new Star Wars films - one a year, starting from 2015.

The company is planning a new Star Wars trilogy as well as a series of films built around existing characters from the Star Wars universe.

Star Wars creator George Lucas sold his film production company Lucasfilm to Disney last year for £2.5 billion.
