From Westeros to a Galaxy Far Far Away it looks like Bob Iger has confirmed that the next trilogy of Star Wars films will be going to Game of Thrones show runners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, coming in 2022.
“We did a deal with David Benioff and D.B Weiss, who are famous for Game of Thrones, and the next movie that we release will be theirs,” Iger said. “And we’re not saying anything more about that.”
“[We thought] it would be smart for us to take a bit of a hiatus while we figure out what’s next. Now, we’re not going to wait until [The Rise of Skywalker] is released and start figuring it out, we’re actually hard at work doing that already,” he said. “The conclusion that we reached was that three years was the proper amount of time to not only take a breather and reset, but to really gear up for the next film’s release.”
It’ll be interesting to see what happens in the next ‘phase’ of Star Wars, but be sure to keep your eyes glued to DFAT to find out what happens next!
