Hugh: Game of Thrones Show Creators Will Handle Upcoming Star Wars Spinoffs

Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have signed on to write and produce a new series of Star Wars films. According to Yahoo! Entertainment, Disney revealed that the new series will be separate from both the main episodic Skywalker saga that started with Star Wars: A New Hope and the Rian Johnson-helmed series that was announced last year. “David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today,” Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, says in a statement. “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.” The creative duo adds, “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.”
