What We Know About The D.B Weiss and David Benioff Star Wars Films
More on Star Wars
The Skywalker Saga is coming to an end, but what is next for Star Wars? The 'Star Wars Story' films have unfairly faltered despite both Rogue One and Solo being excellent films and we know Rian Johnson (director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi) is working on a new trilogy of his own.
Other than that, we also know that D.B.Weiss and David Benioff, showrunners of the Game of Thrones TV series are also working on their own series of films within the wider saga.
Current rumours suggest it is their series that will reach production first and will almost certainly be the one we first get to see in the cinema.
Do we have any details yet?
Not many. Current rumours suggest that the films may well be set before the events of anything else we've seen on screen in the Star Wars universe before. We recently published a rumour that their films could focus on the 'Old Republic', and there are similar rumours that a game set in that time period is also in development. Could the two go hand in hand?
When can we expect to see these new films?
Again it's ALL rumours, but with Game of Thrones now finished the duo are free to start working full time on other projects. We expect these Star Wars films to be the first such project and it has been suggested that pre-production may well kick off later in 2019 with an aim for a 2021 debut. Is this optimistic? Probably not - The Force Awakens was released in 2015 and Disney actually announced the return of Star Wars in 2012 with their purchase of LucasFilm. Now that the Star Wars production line is a well oiled machine we can see pre-production to release being a solid two year cycle.
