David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the artistic crew behind HBO’s Recreation of Thrones and tremendous well-thought-out concepts like Accomplice, will now be writing/producing a brand new collection of Star Wars movies. So for any of you hoping to see Kathleen Kennedy & Co. faucet some non-White male expertise to form the way forward for Star Wars, sorry but it surely appears to be like like that’s not within the playing cards. Certain, some girls and minorities would possibly ultimately make their approach to the director’s chair–although that’s trying much less and fewer doubtless–but it surely’ll be in D&D’s world.
The excellent news is that the brand new movies within the Star Wars universe received’t have something to do with the Skywalker Saga or something that Rian Johnson has in thoughts for the brand new trilogy of movies, in a roundabout way anyway. The dangerous information is just about all the things else, until you’re a die-hard Recreation of Thrones stan who sees nothing flawed with the collection’ adaptation of George R.R. Martin‘s books–yeah, remember that guy? The actual author who dreamed up all this stuff?–or are unconcerned with Disney taking the super-safe path with a sure-fire franchise rather than using the guaranteed audience turnout to do something unconventional. Oh well. Here’s how the information broke:

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are going from Winterfell to a galaxy far, far-off.
It was introduced at this time that Benioff and Weiss, creators of the smash-hit, Emmy Award-winning tv collection Recreation of Thrones, will write and produce a brand new collection of Star Wars movies.
These new movies will likely be separate from each the episodic Skywalker saga and the recently-announced trilogy being developed by Rian Johnson, writer-director of Star Wars: The Final Jedi.
“David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today,” stated Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “Their command of complicated characters, depth of story and richness of mythology will break new floor and boldly push Star Wars in methods I discover extremely thrilling.”
“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 stated in a joint assertion. “We’re honored by the chance, just a little terrified by the accountability, and so excited to get began as quickly as the ultimate season of Recreation of Thrones is full.”
No launch dates have been set for the brand new movies, and there have (fortunately) been no sightings of White Walkers round Lucasfilm.
