Disney and Lucasfilm are getting serious about expanding the Star Wars universe, and has announced a new series of films by Games of Thrones series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
According to the official announcement on StarWars.com, this new Star Wars series will be separate from the Skywalker saga (Episodes I-IX) and the previously announced spinoff trilogy by Rian Johnson, director of 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.”
There is no indication of what this new Star Wars series will focus on, or when it will be released.
