GAME OF THRONES' Creators' STAR WARS Film To Follow Skywalker Saga

GAME OF THRONES' Creators' STAR WARS Film To Follow Skywalker Saga”

According to io9, Walt Disney Company chairman Bob Iger told the crowd, "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".

Speaking in an interview with Empire (via Express), The Rise of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams addresses his controversial title for Episode IX, talking about how he came up with the name for the third and final film in Lucasfilm's Star Wars sequel trilogy.

Thus far, Star Wars fans have been expecting two live-action series to follow the recent spat of movies: the aforementioned The Mandalorian set after the fall of the empire, as well as another live-action series that will be set before the events we saw in the movie Rogue One.

"In coming up with the title we just looked at the film and asked ourselves, 'What are we saying?' It feels very much like the title of this film". Game of Thrones might not exist if not for Star Wars, in the way that this world-building genre [took] science fiction to a new level in the way that Game of Thrones takes fantasy to a new level. "So we're not doing nothing".

"The conclusion that we reached is that three years was the proper amount of time to not only take a breather and to reset, but to really gear up for the next film's release".

As for Rian Johnson's new trilogy, there has been no confirmation as to when those films may be slated for release.

At the NY summit, Iger also talked about the two live-action Star Wars shows coming to Disney+, Jon Favreau'sThe Mandalorian and the untitled Cassian Andor series that serves as a prequel to Rogue One. Both shows will be available to stream exclusively through the Disney+ service.

The second series now in the works for Disney+ is an untitled project focusing on Rogue One character Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), described as an espionage thriller, from The Americans writer Stephen Schiff, which is set to begin production sometime later this year.
