After the Skywalker saga concludes in December, Walt Disney next venture into the Star Wars galaxy will come from the creators of HBO’s global hit Game of Thrones.
Disney announced last week that it had scheduled Star Wars movies for December 2022, 2024 and 2026 but did not reveal any other details. Those will be the first films after Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in December 2019.
Speaking at an investor conference on Tuesday, Chief Executive Bob Iger confirmed that the 2022 film would come from David Benioff and DB Weiss, the creators of medieval fantasy series Game of Thrones. He did not provide any other details.
Disney has said the series will tell a story separate from the Skywalker saga that began with the original 1977 film.
The company also has announced a separate trilogy in the works by Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson. The release date is unknown until yet.
