Star Wars movie in 2022 will come from Game Of Thrones creators

2022 Star Wars Movie Confirmed to Be from Game of Thrones Creators

Iger also revealed that a third live-action Star Wars series is in the works.

As for Rian Johnson's new trilogy, there has been no confirmation as to when those films may be slated for release. The creators of Game of Thrones are currently wrapping the show's final season, and now they've officially booked their next gig - Star Wars.

Speaking at the MoffettNathanson Media & Communications Summit, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that the next batch of Star Wars movies the company will be released will be from the series penned by Game of Thrones creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Just last week, Disney announced their upcoming slated releases, where we learned that the first post-Skywalker-saga Star Wars film will be released on December 18, 2022, nearly three years to the date after The Rise of Skywalker.

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.

"[We thought] it would be smart for us to take a bit of a hiatus while we figure out what's next".

"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".

"We're hard at work doing that already", he said. Iger said fans should expect a third "Star Wars" show on Disney+ by the time the first new film lands in theaters on December 16, 2022, Polygon reported.

Sat atop the list of TV priorities for Disney and Lucasfilm is The Mandalorian, Jon Favreau's hotly-anticipated spinoff that's due to premiere on the Disney Plus streaming service later in 2019.

It's unclear whether the duo will be writing, directing, or producing the film, or any combination of those, or if this film is the first of a series.

David Benioff and DB Weiss, who adapted George RR Martin's series of fantasy novels for TV, had previously been announced as working on an instalment in the Star Wars franchise.
