LAS VEGAS — Disney is turning “Star Wars” films into an annual summer ritual.

Walt Disney Co. chairman Alan Horn announced today that the studio would release films set in a galaxy far, far away every year starting in 2015.

The parade of films will start with “Star Wars: Episode VII,” directed by J.J. Abrams.

Horn said the studio will then alternate films in the new “Star Wars” trilogies with spin-off films drawn from the same universe.

He made the announcement during a presentation at the movie theater convention CinemaCon in Las Vegas.

Disney announced plans to reboot the space franchise after buying Lucasfilm Ltd. last year.
