Game Of Thrones TV creators to direct next Star Wars

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.

The third series was confirmed as set in the Star Wars universe and it'll be a live-action show.

It was revealed past year that the pair would write and produce a new series of Star Wars films, separate from both the episodic Skywalker saga and the previously announced trilogy that is in development from Star Wars: The Last Jedi's Rian Johnson.

So here's all we know for now: the Star Wars film being released in 2022 will be creatively lead by Benioff and Weiss.

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss arrive for the premiere of the final season of "Game of Thrones" at Radio City Music Hall in NY, U.S., April 3, 2019.

Despite the end nearing for the primary saga of the long-running sci-fi film franchise Star Wars, Disney CEO Bob Iger not only announced today that the next three Star Wars films are the in-development projects from Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, but that there may also be a third live-action TV series extension of the franchise in the works. "So we're not doing nothing".

There are two more "Star Wars" films beyond 2022 on Disney's release calendar, in 2024 and 2026, but it's not even clear yet if those films will come from the "Game of Thrones" team. Not only did the teaser promise the return of fan-favorite Star Wars villain Darth Sidious, but it also revealed the official title for the movie: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

"... In the interim we are producing two Star Wars live-action series for Disney+: one of them is called "The Mandalorian", which being supervised by Jon Favreau, and the other one is a bit of a prequel to "Rogue One". It's amusing that Iger is basically like, "we have so much money, sure, we'll probably make another Star War. 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".
