Another day, another Star Wars announcement! Star Wars.com has just revealed some news that I’m pretty excited about! “Game of Thrones” creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss have been put in charge of writing and producing a whole new series of Star Wars movies. These movies will not have anything to do with the Skywalker saga or Rian Johnson’s new trilogy. Here’s what Lucasfilm’s CEO, Kathleen Kennedy had to say…
“David and Dan are are 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.”
“In the summer of 1977 we traveled to a galaxy far, far away, and we’ve been dreaming of it ever since,” said Benioff and Weiss. “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.”
I am very interested to see what the new story line will be. I would love to see movies about the Old Republic era! One thing’s for sure, we’ll never run out of Star Wars!
What do you think about this reveal? What do you hope the new story line will be? Let me know in the comments!
