Earlier today, a conference call with Disney CEO Bob Iger took place during the 6th Annual Moffett-Nathanson Media and Communications Summit and he dropped a big Star Wars reveal.

While it's no secret that Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have been working on something (possibly an entire trilogy) in a Galaxy Far, Far Away, Iger confirmed that the December 16th, 2022 release date recently set aside for a Star Wars movie will indeed be the one they're writing and directing.

What's not clear at this stage is whether that kicks off a new trilogy (with the subsequent instalments coming in those previously announced 2024 and 2026 slots), or something standalone. 

It was also revealed that Disney and Lucasfilm are developing a third Star Wars series for Disney+ to join The Mandalorian and Cassian Andor's untitled spinoff. Whether that will be the long rumoured Obi-Wan Kenobi project obviously remains to be seen. There's no word on what's happening with Rian Johnson's Star Wars plans.

Are you excited to see how this one shapes up following the conclusion of the Skywalker Saga?
