‘Game Of Thrones’ Creators To Launch New ‘Star Wars’ Series

Published

on

It’s not just winter that’s coming. More Star Wars is coming! This time, written and produced by Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. The creative pair is responsible for one the most popular shows of all time. Now, everyone’s wondering if they’ll be just as successful in a franchise with fans as ruthless as the kings and queens of Westeros.

A Brand New Star Wars Series, Separate From Main Films

What’s particularly intriguing to Star Wars fans is that the new series will exist separately from the Skywalker Saga of the central films. It will also be separate from the recently-announced series of films by The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson. So, what exactly will they be about?

Lucasfilm Execs Excited For The Future

Nevertheless, the executives at Disney and Lucasfilm have nothing but faith in the pair. Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy lauded their potential, commenting, “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.” But no one’s as excited as Benioff and Weiss themselves.

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