2022 Star Wars Movie Coming from Game of Thrones Team Confirms Disney
This is official: the Star Wars 2022 movie will come from David Benioff and DB Weiss, the creative team behind Game of Thrones by HBO . We recently learned that Disney had defined their exit plans for the franchise following the release of JJ Abrams The Rise of Skywalker later this year, which will close the trilogy in a row and, more importantly, the Skywalker saga we follow since 1977. The next chapter of the franchise will debut in theaters in 2022 and Benioff and Weiss will actually be behind.
We learned for the first time that David Benioff and DB Weiss had an agreement with Disney and Lucasfilm in February 2018. Before the release of The Last Jedi Lucasfilm also announced that the director Rian Johnson was preparing to work on his own film Star Wars . ] trilogy outside the limits of the Skywalker saga. It was therefore difficult to determine which project would take this period 2022. But the CEO of Disney, Bob Iger, confirmed at the summit MoffettNathanson Media and Communications that a distant galaxy, far away, was headed then. Here's what Iger had to say about it.
"We are not going to wait until nine o'clock is up to begin to understand, we are working hard to do that now, we have an agreement with David Benioff and Dan Weiss, who are famous for "Game of Thrones" and the next movie we will release will be theirs, and we are saying nothing more about it. "
Initially, it seemed like the guys who helped make from Game of Thrones the resounding success that it was about movies in this universe would be a great idea. However, many fans were vocally unhappy with the direction of the last season of the series, with the most recent episode The Bells provoking particularly negative reviews. In this case, this confirmation may be spreading.
Still, from Disney's point of view, these are guys who know how to create an epic story by playing in someone else's sandbox. At the moment, it is unclear what story the duo will attack, but it seems that their trilogy takes place during the Old Republic era, thousands of years before the movies already seen. Bob Iger also reiterated that it was necessary to give a break to the audience after episode IX.

"Finally, we think it will be wise to pause for a while. that we will determine the continuation of the work, which allowed us to think that the three-year period was enough to not only catch our breath, but also to move up a gear for the next films. still seen nine finished, but I'm confident based on the pieces I've seen and the scenario I've read, it will be extremely popular.
