Cantina Talk: Game of Thrones‘ Showrunners Are Helming the Next Star Wars Movie

With everyone hard at work on future projects—like, you know, putting the final touches on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker—it's a time of relative calm in the galaxy far, far away. But that doesn't mean there is no news to share about upcoming Star Wars stories. (Though it does seem like Solo put the brakes on actual Star Wars Story movies for a while.) Here's what's going on on the other side of the Outer Rim.

Game of Thrones' Showrunners Are Helming the Next Star Wars Movie

The Source: Disney PR and Disney CEO Bob Iger, respectively

Probability of Accuracy: This is verified truth.

The Real Deal: Less than a month after Disney CEO Bob Iger mentioned that Star Wars was going to go on a cinematic hiatus after the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Disney unveiled its movie schedule for the next few years, revealing just how long that hiatus will be: Three years, with the first of three new movies scheduled for December 16, 2022. (The others are scheduled for December 20, 2024, and December 18, 2026, respectively; all are officially titled Untitled Star Wars for now.) Days later, it was confirmed that the 2022 movie would come from Game of Thrones showrunners D. B. Weiss and David Benioff, which may explain why there's going to be a three-year-gap; presumably, that's how long it'll take people to forgive them for how Game of Thrones ended.

Disney+ Is Getting More Star Wars TV

The Source: Disney CEO Bob Iger again

Probability of Accuracy: Let's just assume that he knows what he's talking about.

The Real Deal: The Benioff and Weiss announcement wasn't the only thing Iger confirmed while speaking at the Sixth Annual Moffett Nathanson Media & Communications Summit last week; he also revealed the (only logical, if you think about it) news that Lucasfilm was at work on a previously unknown third live-action Star Wars series for Disney+, although no further details were revealed.

Given that Marvel has three live-action series announced for Disney+ (WandaVision, The Falcon and Winter Soldier, and Loki; there’s also the unannounced Hawkeye show and the animated What If?), it always seemed a little odd that Star Wars was seemingly limited to two live-action shows in addition to the Clone Wars revival. Now it's clear that's not the case. Hopefully, some details, a title, and a premiere date will be coming soon. That's not too much to ask, is it?

The Rise of Skywalker Is Very Good, Says Man Who's Working on It

The Source: John Williams, aka the man who wrote all that music you love

Probability of Accuracy: Can opinions even be accurate? Let's award the benefit of the doubt and say, sure, this is accurate.

The Real Deal: We mere mortals have more than six months to wait until we find out how the Skywalker Saga ends in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but there are others far luckier—especially because they get to actually work on the damn thing, as well. Case in point: John Williams, who has already seen an early cut of the movie and reportedly "beams" when talking about it, saying that he "liked what he has seen 'very much.'" Apparently it's an inspirational movie, so much so that Williams wrote about 25 minutes of score for the film in just a month or so. It'll be the end of an era for Williams; the final movie in the Skywalker Saga is also going to be Williams' final score for the series. It only makes sense; at age 87, he's allowed to retire from the series at some point.

Read All About Rise of Skywalker Before You Can See It

The Source: Official Lucasfilm PR

Probability of Accuracy: As it's an official announcement, this is pretty much the definition of accurate.

The Real Deal: For everyone who is not John Williams, there soon will be another way to get an early jump on what happens in the next Star Wars movie; Lucasfilm just unveiled the publishing tie-ins to The Rise of Skywalker, and they include both comic books and novels about the rebuilding of the Resistance following the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker—Allegiance and Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker—Resistance Reborn, respectively) as well as a YA novel called Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker—Force Collector that involves a new character with some kind of connection to the Force, oddly enough. Just what that has to do with anything that actually happens in the movie remains a mystery, but now we're curious to what degree other Force sensitives beyond Kylo and Rey are going to play in the movie, especially after the events of The Last Jedi.

Merchandising! Merchandising!

The Source: Disney Parks

Probability of Accuracy: When it comes to available merchandise, if it's not April 1, it's more than likely accurate.

The Real Deal: While we're thinking about all things Star Wars for you to buy, please take a second to look at this vast array of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge merchandise, which includes everything from costumes to toys and … well, most everything in between. (There's even a build-your-own-droid offering, because of course there is.) If the prospect of buying your own Holochron Crystals isn't enough to make you plan a trip to a Disney theme part right now, perhaps simply envy will help. After all, look who's already had a chance to visit.

Somehow, it always comes back to Bob Iger.
