During the MoffetNathanson Media & Communications Summit, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed the next Star Wars film after The Rise of Skywalker will be from Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

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

In addition to Benioff and Weiss, The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is also set to write, produce, and possibly direct a new Star Wars trilogy, although no announcements regarding his project has been made. "The next movie that we release will be theirs", said Iger, talking about Weiss and Benioff.

One week ago The Walt Disney Company put out their film slate through 2027, including three mystery Star Wars films dated for December 16, 2022, December 20, 2024 and December 18, 2026. "We're not saying anything more about that [right now]". Following Oberyn's bloody demise, Pascal landed the lead role in Disney+'s upcoming live-action Star Wars series, called The Mandalorian. "We haven't said anything more beyond what we've announced on the next film". Benioff and Weiss are now wrapping up the final season of Game of Thrones, which will air its series finale this Sunday.

He also offered praise for The Rise of Skywalker, a.k.a. Episode IX.

"We're hard at work doing that already", he said. "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.

"I haven't seen nine finished yet", he continued, "but I'm confident based on the pieces I've seen and the script I've read that it'll be extremely popular".
