Game Of Thrones Writers Working On New A Series Of Star Wars Movies
Disney have announced that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, creators of the smash-hit, Emmy Award-winning television series Game of Thrones, will be writing and producing a new series of Star Wars films.
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.”
“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.”
No release dates have been set for the new films.
This news will mean we have got over half a dozen Star Wars movies now in production and it’s certainly going to mean we get lots more content based on this universe for years to come, so expect lots more characters to see new toys, collectibles, books, video games and merchandise for a long time, hopefully with lots of new characters, locations and vehicles, plus mixing in what we have already.
Are you excited for more Star Wars movies? I know I am!!
