Never again will a summer vacation go by with time wasted on beach trips, cross-country excursions, and duet-inspiring romances. Now, we'll be able to focus our summertime brains on far more important subject matter: Star Wars. On Wednesday, Walt Disney Pictures graced the Las Vegas festival CinemaCon with the uplifting news that every summer starting in 2015 will mark the release of a new Star Wars movie, kicking off with J.J. Abrams' first installment in the new trilogy, Star Wars: Episode VII

Intertwining the chapters of the sequel trilogy, moviegoers will see the previously announced standalone films as upcoming summer releases. There is no official announcement yet on how many of these films Disney's new acquisition LucasFilms will produce — a few names to enter the conversation so far as subjects for these movies have been Hans Solo, Yoda, and Boba Fett. Who do you hope hits theaters first?
