David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are working on the upcoming Star Wars movie due out in 2022, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed during the MoffettNathanson Media and Communications Summit on Tuesday (May 14) in New York City.

This news follows the revelation that there will be a trio of untitled Star Wars movies following Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

“We’re hard at work already, but we felt three years was the proper amount of time to not only take a breather and reset, but to gear up for the next film’s release. We did a deal with David Benioff and Dan Weiss, who are famous for Game of Thrones and the next movie that we release will be theirs, and we’re not saying anything more about that,” he said.

Following the 2022 movie, the next Star Wars movies will come out in 2024 and 2026.

'Game Of Thrones' Creators Are Writing & Producing a New 'Star Wars' Film Series!

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, otherwise known as the Game of Thrones creators, are writing and producing a new Star Wars film series!

The exciting news was revealed on Tuesday (February 6) by Disney.

The series will be separate from the main saga that first began with Star Wars: A New Hope in 1977, according to Variety. It’s also different from the Rian Johnson series announced last year.

David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today. Their command of complex characters, depth of story and richness of mythology will break new ground and boldly push Star Wars in ways I find incredibly exciting,” said Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy.

“In the summer of 1977 we traveled to a galaxy far, far away, and we’ve been dreaming of it ever since. We are honored by the opportunity, a little terrified by the responsibility, and so excited to get started as soon as the final season of Game of Thrones is complete,” the two creators said in a statement.

Game Of Thrones comes to an end on HBO in 2019.
