Next Star Wars Movie From Game of Thrones Creators; Not Rian Johnson

Iger didn't let on what the third TV show would cover, but space is a big place - and Star Wars won't exactly run out of planets or characters they can mine for new shows.

Iger spoke of the decision to wait that long for more Star Wars at the summit. Joining it for immediately release is the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

"The next movie that we release will be theirs, and we're not saying more about that", Iger said during the MoffettNathanson 6th Annual Media & Communications Summit in NY.

The pair were already expected to write and produce a trilogy for the franchise when Disney announced their involvement in February 2018, but it was thought that their trilogy would come after the current slate of films that Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is creating.

Are you excited for Benioff & Weiss' Star Wars trilogy? "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", he said. Likewise, Disney also announced plans to release additional Star Wars films on December 20, 2024 and December 18, 2026, but it's unclear if Benioff and Weiss are also involved in those entries.

Worth a mention is that if Rian Johnson is working on a new Star Wars trilogy, Disney would have announced release dates for four new movies and not three, which probably means the Game of Thrones creators are working on a new trilogy.

The Mandalorian follows the story of a bounty hunter played by Game of Thrones and Narcos actor Pedro Pascal, while the other, untitled series with Luna follows the story of Cassian Andor and the droid K-2SO, who is played by Alan Tudyk.

Disney's first foray into the Star Wars universe, The Force Awakens, was a success - both financially and critically.
