Only two films in history have ever grossed more than $2 billion at the worldwide box office, with director James Cameron responsible for both: Avatar and Titanic.
He may have company come 2015, when J.J. Abrams unleashes the next episode in the Star Wars saga to a hungry audience. To be fair, it's easy to speculate this early in the game. Yet all signs suggest that Walt Disney (NYSE: DIS) will put muscle and talent behind the franchise, which it spent $4 billion to acquire.
In the following video, Tim Beyers of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Motley Fool Supernova explains clues revealed in a recent interview Abrams gave to Empire magazine. Please watch, and then leave a comment to let us know what you think of Disney's plans to extend the franchise.
