Game Of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have been going through the wringer of late; at this point, it's only a matter of time before one of both utters a Gladiator-esque "Are You Not Entertained?!" Coming in 2022, this movie will kick off a trilogy that will usher in the next generation of Star Wars stories, with the Skywalker Saga coming to a close.

Iger spoke of the decision to wait that long for more Star Wars at the summit. Meanwhile, three Star Wars streaming shows are set to arrive on the upcoming Disney+ streaming service, including The Mandalorian, a Rogue One spinoff series focused on the character of Cassian Andor, and a now undisclosed show.

"We thought it would be smart for us to take a bit of a hiatus while we figure out what's next", he said.

"We're hard at work doing that already", he said.

Game of Thrones will come to a conclusion on Monday at 2am and 9pm on Sky Atlantic.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premieres December 20, 2019. The creators of Game of Thrones are currently wrapping the show's final season, and now they've officially booked their next gig - Star Wars.

As reported by Deadline, Disney CEO Bob Iger has revealed the existence of a third live-action series set in the Star Wars universe, which will be joining the Rogue One prequel and The Mandalorian spin-off show on the Disney+ service.

First, it hasn't been confirmed whether Benioff and Weiss are working on a proper trilogy, or simply a series of three standalone films.

"My guess is there probably will be at least one more live-action series that we produce for Disney+, a Star Wars series, before we release the next film", Iger said.

The company also has announced a separate "Star Wars" trilogy in the works by "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" director Rian Johnson.
