Game of Thrones Showrunners to Helm Next Star Wars Trilogy
Via Attractions Magazine:
This morning, Bob Iger, CEO of The Walt Disney Company, announced that once the Skywalker Saga is complete, the next “Star Wars” film to be released will be by “Game of Thrones” showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss… much to the dismay of the entire internet.
It’s no secret that the Thrones fandom at large is less than happy with how the final season is playing out, and many blame this on Benioff and Weiss. With the most recent episode having the lowest Tomatometer score in the series’ history on Rotten Tomatoes, the timing for this announcement is unfortunate at best.
Regardless of the fandom’s reaction, Benioff and Weiss’ “Star Wars” film will release on Dec. 16, 2022.
Other news bites revealed in the call included new that we can expect one more live-action Star Wars series to come to Disney+ beyond the Cassian Andor series and The Mandalorian.
While there are no confirmed details on the third live-action “Star Wars” series, many fans and insiders believe it will be focused on Obi-Wan Kenobi.
