Benioff And Weiss' Star Wars Trilogy No Longer Happening

Game Of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have walked away from their proposed Star Wars trilogy to focus on their upcoming Netflix projects. They released a statement, saying, "We love Star Wars. When George Lucas built it, he built us too,” they said in a statement. “Getting to talk about Star Wars with him and the current Star Wars team was the thrill of a lifetime, and we will always be indebted to the saga that changed everything. But there are only so many hours in the day, and we felt we could not do justice to both Star Wars and our Netflix projects. So we are regretfully stepping away.”
Their trilogy, first announced in February 2018, would have been separate from the nine episodes of the Skywalker saga, as well as, the Rian Johnson-helmed series, announced last year. Their first movie was scheduled for a Dec. 16, 2022 release, with two more following in 2024 and 2026.

I find amusing that they rushed the last season of Game of Thrones so they could get started working on their Star Wars project only to drop it in favor of their Netflix deal.
