Game of Thrones showrunners behind next Star Wars film

Then, there's the concern about how Benioff and Weiss will handle a Star Wars film or series, given the rising criticism about the final season of Game of Thrones-much of it centring around the writing and pace.

Disney Chairman and CEO Robert Iger dropped the news Tuesday morning during a Q&A at the MoffettNathanson Media & Communications Summit.

'We did a deal with David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who are famous for Game of Thrones, and the next movie we release will be theirs. "We haven't said anything more beyond what we've announced on the next film".

Disney recently announced release dates for three untitled Star Wars movies that don't get released until years after Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker, starting in 2022. It will also mark the third Star Wars project with some Game of Thrones crossover: Emilia Clarke starred in Solo, Pedro Pascal in The Mandalorian, and Benioff and Weiss on the upcoming movie.

"David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today", Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, previously said.

Disney's content strategy so far makes us think another star-led prequel could be possible: maybe a mini-series covering Finn's time as a Stormtrooper, or an origin story for Andy Serkis' Supreme Leader Snoke (who we still know so little about)?

"My guess is there will probably be one more, at least one more, live-action [Star Wars] series that we produce for Disney+...before we release the next film."
The content would fill the gap until the arrival of the next Star Wars movie planned for 2022. Right now we're waiting for the first full trailer for Episode IX, and while most are expecting the video to drop during this year's San Diego Comic-Con International, there are those betting on the Disney exhibition, D23.

JJ Abrams' The Rise Of Skywalker will bring it to a close in December. In November 2017, the studio commissioned an all-new trilogy from The Last Jedi's director, Rian Johnson, but the current state is unknown.

"We're hard at work doing that already", he said.
