Bob Iger has announced who will helm the next Star Wars film to be released after this years Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, and it isn't Rian Johnson.
Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed that “Game of Thrones” creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are working on the next Star Wars movie that’s due out in 2022.
Bob Iger made the announcement today while attending the MoffettNathanson Media and Communications Summit. This announcement comes only a week after they had already revealed there will be three more films after a 3-year break. No other details were announced at that time and it was rumored that Rian Johnson would have a part in that slate.
Here’s what Iger had to say at today’s summit…
“We’re hard at work already, but we felt three years was the proper amount of time to not only take a breather and reset, but to gear up for the next film’s release. We did a deal with David Benioff and Dan Weiss, who are famous for ‘Game of Thrones’ and the next movie that we release will be theirs, and we’re not saying anything more about that.”
As stated, it was just recently announced that following “The Rise of Skywalker” the next set of Star Wars films would be released every two years starting in 2022. No word yet on whether or not Benioff and Weiss will have anything to do with those later releases.
We've also heard rumors that a third live-action series will be coming to the Disney+ streaming service to help fill the void between the 2019 and 2022 releases.
Stay tuned for more details as they come in!
