‘Star Wars’ Universe to Expand with New Films from “Game of Thrones” Creators


Hot off the release of the first trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story, it’s been announced that even more stories from the galaxy far far away are in the works.

According to StarWars.com, the creators of “Game of Thrones” are taking the helm which already has us hyped. David Benioff & D.B. Weiss will trade in the swords for lightsabers as they write and produce a new series of Star Wars films. These new films will be separate from both the episodic Skywalker saga and the recently-announced trilogy being developed by Rian Johnson.

“David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “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. Are you excited for these new films or do you think its too much Star Wars? (Trick question, you can never have too much Star Wars!)
