David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, best known for creating probably the biggest TV show of all time in Game Of Thrones, will produce a brand new series of Star Wars movies once their work on ‘Game Of Thrones’ is complete.
The statement given to us by the official Star Wars website told us these new films will be separate from both the episodic Skywalker saga and the recently-announced trilogy being developed by Rian Johnson, writer-director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
“David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “Their command of complex characters, depth of story and richness of mythology will break new ground and boldly push Star Wars in ways I find incredibly exciting.”
The two screenwriters have been hard at work with Game Of Thrones, but once the series of over they will begin work on the new Star Wars movies, a project which is enough to excite all Star Wars fans. The duo recently told StarWars.com: “In the summer of 1977 we traveled to a galaxy far, far away, and we’ve been dreaming of it ever since,” Benioff and Weiss said in a joint statement. “We are honored by the opportunity, a little terrified by the responsibility, and so excited to get started as soon as the final season of Game of Thrones is complete.”
