Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss go together a new Star Wars film series. The new set must again be a trilogy.
The films are detached from the original Skywalker saga, which in 1977 began with A New Hope and next year ends in the still-untitled Episode IX. Also, the new trilogy release in december announced three-part series that is The Last of the Jedi-director Rian Johnson. Releasedatums are not yet published.
“David and Dan are one of the best storytellers of our time,” says Kathleen Kennedy of Lucasfilm. She praises the duo to the rich mythological stories and complex characters.
Benioff and Weiss go after the season finale of Game of Thrones to get started. The two have always this chance dreamed of, so let them know. “We feel honored, a little scared of the enormous responsibility and have a lot of sense to go to work after the last season of Game of Thrones.”
