For all intents and purposes, Benioff and Weiss are the showrunners of this new branch of Star Wars. TV writ large. Since the press release said it was a film series and didn't specify that it would be a trilogy, I reckon we'll be getting a Harry Potter-sized amount of films, each of which could be helmed by a different director.
"It was announced today that Benioff and Weiss, creators of the smash-hit, Emmy Award-winning television series Game of Thrones, will write and produce a new series of Star Wars films."
