From Winterfell to a galaxy far, far away.
Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will write and produce a new series of Star Wars films, Disney and Lucasfilm announced Tuesday.
Lucasfilm says the new movies will be separate from the episodic Skywalker saga and separate from the trilogy being developed by The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson.
“David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today,” said Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, in a statement on StarWars.com. “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.
The next movies fans can expect are Solo: A Star Wars Story out May 25, 2018 and Star Wars: Episode IX due out in December 2019.
