Disney has officially announced that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss to write and produce a new series of star wars films.
You heard right, a new SERIES of Star Wars films have been announced today! These new films will be separate from both the episodic Skywalker saga and the recently-announced trilogy being developed by Rian Johnson, writer-director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Basically, we will be getting so a whole lot of Star Wars content coming in the future.
“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.”
My dream is that they Disney would allow them to go off the rails with a gritty Star Wars that had a whole lot of substance and life, but truth be told we will not get that! This is all we know about this new trilogy for now!
