The agreement with Disney for 10 films includes the network premiere windows to last year's record-breaking "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and this year's highly anticipated "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," which opens in theaters on December 16, 2016. The Disney agreement also includes five of the six original classic "Star Wars" films, as well as the network television premieres of the next three yet-to-be-released movies.
