More Star Wars films on the way (from Game of Thrones TV show creators)

Discussed in the chatbox but not a thread yet:

Quote:
David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are going from Winterfell to a galaxy far, far away.

It was announced today that Benioff and Weiss, creators of the smash-hit, Emmy Award-winning television series Game of Thrones, will 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, writer-director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

“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, and there have (thankfully) been no sightings of White Walkers around Lucasfilm.
Guess they're not slowing down on the number of Star Wars films any time soon.

If I was to guess:
2018 - Solo: A Star Wars Story
2019 - Episode IX
2020 - Unnannounced Star Wars Story (hopefully Obi-Wan)
2021 - Johnson's trilogy part 1
2022 - Benioff & Weiss part 1
2023 - Johnson's trilogy part 2
2024 - (Benioff & Weiss part 2)
2025 - Johnson's trilogy part 3
2026 - (Benioff & Weiss part 3?)

Then I bet after that they'll do Episodes X-XII with more anthology films in between (Sebulba: A Star Wars Story like Mad Max pls). All the Star Wars. And who knows, maybe by the end, Attack of the Clones won't even be in the bottom 5.

I wonder if Benihoff and Weiss will have someone else write the first four seasons for them this time too?

Benioff and Weiss are awful. They took the best things GRRM wrote and made them far far worse. Then when they started their fan fiction it became one of the best unintentional comedies of all time.

I'm not sure about having concurrent trilogies running, it could easily get confusing. It's early days but I like the Trilogy Part 1 - Standalone Prequel - Trilogy Part 2 - Standalone Prequel - Trilogy Part 3 thing they've got going at the moment. You don't need to remember which trilogy you're watching.

I'm sure people already have. While they're still getting great reviews and making more money than God I doubt anyone will care though.

I don't mind more SW, milk that universe Disney, it's vast enough to support it; what I don't like is D & D being involved. We've seen what they did to GoT once the GRRM stuff ran out.

Shilling for Xia Li, Aliyah, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley
