David Benioff and DB Weiss, who adapted George RR Martin's series of fantasy novels for TV, had previously been announced as working on an instalment in the Star Wars franchise.

Just days before the final episode of Game of Thrones airs on HBO, wrapping up one of the most critically acclaimed (and divisive) TV shows of the decade, Disney has announced that creators and showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will write and produce the next Star Wars movie.

This also leaves the future of Rian Johnson's planned Star Wars trilogy uncertain, as we still haven't heard when (or if) the first film in that previously announced series will debut.

Kim Kardashian posted a surprise music video to the hit song " Old Town Road " that her daughter North West choreographed Tuesday. She also claims he's the most " calm and chill " of all her children, which fans guess is due to the CBD baby shower.


The studio revealed earlier this week that the next Star Wars movies will hit theaters on December 16, 2022, December 12, 2024 and December 18, 2026, which were expected by most fans to be Johnson's trilogy, but Bob Iger confirmed otherwise.

Benioff and Weiss were reported to be developing their own Star Wars spin-offs in February, 2018. "The next movie that we release will be theirs", said Iger, talking about Weiss and Benioff.

The Mandalorian will be available to stream when Disney+ goes live in mid-November; the Rogue One series won't arrive until 2021, around one year before the next batch of Star Wars movies will kick off.

Iger said he hasn't seen the finished Rise of Skywalker yet, but he expects it will be extremely popular.

After releasing five films since purchasing Lucasfilm in 2012 - The Force Awakens, Rogue One, The Last Jedi, Solo, and now The Rise of Skywalker - he said he believed "it would be smart for us to take a bit of a hiatus while we figure out what's next". "Now, we're not going to wait until [The Rise of Skywalker] is released and start figuring it out, we're actually hard at work doing that already", he said.

David Benioff and DB Weiss say they are a little terrified by the responsibility or taking on the Star Wars universe.
