'Star Wars' movie in 2022 will come from 'Game of Thrones' creators

15 May 2019

Aside from the new movies, Disney has already announced two new live-action Star Wars TV shows, which will both debut on the Disney+ streaming service.

Last week, Disney announced it was taking a three-year break on feature films from the Star Wars franchise after the debut this December of J.J. Abrams' The Rise of Skywalker, which concludes the trilogy that began with 2015's The Force Awakens - and also serves as a finale for the overall "Skywalker Saga" that began with the 1977 original.

As for Rian Johnson's new trilogy, there has been no confirmation as to when those films may be slated for release.

Still, if David Benioff and Dan Weiss are able to bring the magic touch that made Thrones such a mega-hit to Star Wars, their movie could be very successful.

It's official. Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will soon be going from swords to lightsabers when they will helm the next Star Wars movie after 2019's The Rise of Skywalker.

"[We thought] it would be smart for us to take a bit of a hiatus while we figure out what's next". "So we're not doing nothing".

We've known for a while that Benioff and Weiss would step into the world of Star Wars, but this the first confirmation we have that theirs will be the next film to make it to the big screen.

"In coming up with the title we just looked at the film and asked ourselves, 'What are we saying?' It feels very much like the title of this film".

No word has been revealed about when Rian Johnson's trilogy will arrive, but Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be released on December 20 of this year. They're set to alternate with James Cameron's planned Avatar sequels, which start in 2021 and are expected to continue every other year through 2027.

In addition to Iron Man director Jon Favreau's new Star Wars TV show The Mandalorian and the one starring Rogue One actor Diego Luna as Cassian Andor, a third Star Wars TV program for Disney+ is in the works.
