Creators Of Game Of Thrones Working On New Star Wars Films

Winter could be coming to space. I… I’m pretty sure that’s not possible, but just let me think I’m funny okay?

Lucasfilm announced on Tuesday that a new series of Star Wars Films would be helmed by the creators of Game Of Thrones, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

This new series of films will be separate from both Rian Johnson’s new trilogy and the ongoing ‘Skywalker Saga’. There has been no release date set for the film as of yet, though filming won’t commence until after the pair wraps up filming of the final season of Game Of Thrones.

The series of films will begin filming once Weiss & Benioff wrap up the final season of Game Of Thrones.

“In the summer of 1977 we travelled to a galaxy far, far away, and we’ve been dreaming of it ever since,” Benioff said during the announcement. “We are honored by the opportunity, a little terrified by the responsibility, and so excited to get started,”.

Kathleen Kennedy from Lucasfilm gave her endorsement, calling the duo “some of the best storytellers working today. 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.”
