Bob Iger confirmed on a conference call that the next Star Wars movie, now set to be released in 2022 will be coming from Game of Thrones writers David Benioff and DB Weiss.
This has been suspected by a few other sources for a while, but Iger has confirmed that himself. So that could mean that the movie coming in 2024 will belong to Rian Johnson, but at this point that’s still up in the air. Game of Thrones wraps up on HBO this Sunday. Last episode seems to have been their most poorly received to date. We’re still not sure if Benioff and Weiss will direct as well as write the movie, but I’m sure that news will come eventually.
Iger also confirmed that there will be more Star Wars shows coming for Disney+ after The Mandalorian and the already confirmed Cassian Andor series. Lately, an Obi Wan Kenobi series is believed to be in development, but was never formally confirmed.
So, Benioff and Weiss are next.
