Game of Thrones showrunners get first post-Skywalker Star Wars film

Game of Thrones showrunners get first post-Skywalker Star Wars film

While speaking at the MoffettNathanson 6th Annual Media & Communications Summit in New York Tuesday, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that the first movie to follow The Rise of Skywalker will be from the minds of David Benioff and D.B.

"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 my guess is there will probably be at least one more live-action series that we produce for Disney+ (meaning a Star Wars series), before we release the next film".

During the summit, Iger discussed the future of the Star Wars franchise in both film and television. "The Last Jedi" director Rian Johnson is working on a trilogy of his own and it's possible the two projects could take alternate, with a new "Star Wars" movie released every other year. Iger said the break was a deliberate choice on the part of the company, following the latest trilogy and two spinoff films, Solo and Rogue One.

The first new film will arrive in 2022, as indicated by a recent announcement from Disney spacing three new Star Wars films in the next decade around new installments of James Cameron's Avatar series. 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.

"I haven't seen nine finished yet", he continued, "but I'm confident based on the pieces I've seen and the script I've read that it'll be extremely popular".

Optionally, the charging capability can be doubled to 6.6 kW so that a full charge takes a little under two hours. According to Opel, the vehicle's battery will charge up in about 1h50m when plugged in to a 7.4kW wallbox.

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

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.

The film is set for a December 16, 2022 theatrical release.

Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss are officially taking the reigns of Star Wars.

Iger also teased that a third Star Wars TV series is in the works for the company's Disney+ streaming service.
