Take the R2D2: Donegal road named after 'Star Wars' robot

‘Star Wars’: Rian Johnson & ‘Game of Thrones’ Writers Working Together on the Next Decade of Films

Abrams, who is coming back to the helm after directing "The Force Awakens" four years ago, said he nearly didn't sign on board to oversee the last film.

Disney CEO Bob Iger recently confirmed that Star Wars films will be going on hiatus for a few years, after Episode IX graces the big screen this December.

The name-change on a road that runs through the scenic Inishowen peninsula has been approved by Donegal County Council.

Star Wars had previously announced that Rian Johnson would be working on his own trilogy in the Star Wars universe while Benioff and Weiss would be working on their own Star Wars films.

The signage has been erected ahead of Inishowen's first May The Fourth Be With You festival next month. "I also think Respawn's game has the benefit of being largely developed before they were acquired", she posited.

Harvick was sixth in the first round, second to Kyle Busch in the second round and first with the pole at stake. A year ago, Truex won four races and finished second in his bid for a second championship.

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy also spoke to "GMA" and called "The Rise of Skywalker" the "epitome of good versus evil". "They're working very closely with Rian".

Amy Hennig is happy for Respawn, but she thought EA's now infamous tweet on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was a bit odd. The game would get a sequel in Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords.

The future of Star Wars is in a state of flux. "While the trailer was just a bunch of pre-rendered nonsense that showed off nothing about the game, developer Respawn Entertainment's comments that 'There's no multiplayer, and there are no microtransactions" was seen as a move in the right direction for EA. "It's still Star Wars, and holding on to the DNA of what George created is still very important to us".

So what does the next phase of Star Wars look like? "I think it will absolutely live up to the hype".

Despite the announced hiatus, we knew for a fact that there are at least two more Star Wars trilogies now in development, one by The Last Jedi director, Rian Johnson and the other by Game of Thrones showrunners, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
