If you thought the Solo: A Star Wars Story Trailer was the biggest Star Wars news of the week, you’d be wrong!
According to StarWars.com, Game Of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will be writing and producing a series of Star Wars movies. The series of films is reportedly separate from the main Star Wars trilogy and the new trilogy that Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is developing.
“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.”
“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.”
This is breaking news, stay tuned for updates.
