STAR WARS, the iconic franchise of the 1980s, has been on a roll of late, as it has continued to rake in the biggest-grossing grosses of all time.
In 2020, the global box office will hit a record $3.4 billion and the film has been nominated for a total of five Oscars.
As the world of cinema continues to expand, it is also beginning to expand into other territories.
For the first time ever, China’s state broadcaster CCTV has officially announced that it is planning to release a documentary on the world’s biggest film studio, Disney, which is also the parent company of Pixar and Lucasfilm.
The announcement follows a similar move by the Central Asian nation of Uzbekistan, which said it is opening its own studio for films, as well as introducing new policies aimed at curbing piracy.
The country is also working to bring back some of the film industry’s key characters and will be looking to raise the level of production in China and the other two main regions to meet demand.
The first films will be released from 2022 to 2024, according to CCTV.
There will be a total output of more than 2,000 films from the company, which will create more than 50,000 jobs.
