'Game of Thrones' showrunners behind next 'Star Wars' film

Piloting the Millennium Falcon is one of the experiences visitors to Galaxy's Edge will be able to have

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

If you're not happy with the way "Game of Thrones" is ending and you're a "Star Wars" fan, well, step away from the computer.

In the interim, we are producing two live-action Star Wars series for Disney+.

"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.

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.

It was revealed previous year that the pair would write and produce a new series of Star Wars films, separate from both the episodic Skywalker saga and the previously announced trilogy that is in development from Star Wars: The Last Jedi's Rian Johnson.

Speaking at the MoffetNathanson Media & Communications summit, Iger announced that the next Star Wars film after The Rise of Skywalker will come from David Benioff and Dan Weiss. "So we're not doing nothing".

'Now we're not going to wait until [Episode] 9 is released and then start figuring it out. "And we're not saying anything more about that". "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. While Iger hasn't seen the finished movie just yet, he is very confident based on the script (written by Chris Terrio and director J.J. Abrams) and bits of footage he has seen so far. Among the original content planned for Disney+ are two live-action Star Wars shows, including one called The Mandalorian, and now Disney is teasing plans for a third series set in the same universe.
