From the Iron Throne to the Deathstar.

After ending their 8-year journey in Westeros, the creators of Game of Thrones are planning to head to a galaxy far, far away.

Disney has confirmed that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are working on aStar Wars movie that is due out in 2022.

The upcoming film in the franchise, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, will conclude the current trilogy when it is released in December.

A new trilogy will begin in 2022, with subsequent films coming out in 2024 and 2026, respectively.

“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,” said Disney CEO Bob Iger.

“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.”

The secretive film will hit screens on December 16th, 2022.
