Kevin Feige’s developing Star Wars film is unlikely to take the release date previously given to the first project from Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.
Earlier this week, Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss announced they were no longer working a new Star Wars trilogy, citing the time required by their overall deal with Netflix as the reason for their exit. Before the Game of Thrones duo announced their departure, the first installment of their Star Wars trilogy had been scheduled for a theatrical release in December 2022.
Last month, Walt Disney Studios CCO Alan Horn announced Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was developing a new Star Wars film to produce alongside Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. While news of David Benioff and D. B. Weiss parting ways with the Star Wars franchise had some suspecting Kevin Feige’s film would take the slot designated for the Game of Thrones showrunner’s first project, The Hollywood Reporter notes that it is unlikely that the Marvel Studios president’s movie will take December 2022 slot.
Kevin Feige recently became Chief Creative Officer, Marvel, and will now oversee the television and publishing divisions of the company in addition to continuing his duties at Marvel Studios. Under Kevin Feige’s leadership, Marvel Studios’ upcoming slate of films includes Black Widow, The Eternals, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Thor: Love and Thunder as well as several projects for Disney Plus.
Meanwhile, the Game of Thrones franchise is moving forward with a prequel series centered on the downfall of the Targaryens titled House of the Dragon. Before the Targaryen prequel was officially announced, HBO opted to pull the plug on a separate Game of Thrones prequel pilot starring Naomi Watts.
