Game of Thrones producers tapped to create new Star Wars films

The folks behind the Red Wedding, White Walkers, and Blue Dragon Fire are dropping the colors of Westeros for the darkness of space.

Disney & Lucasfilm have announced that the Producers of HBO’s Game of Thrones, David Benioff & DB Weiss, will be handed the reigns to their own series of Star Wars films. Weiss and Benioff will begin working on Star Wars when the final season of Game of Thrones airs in 2019. Nothing is revealed about the new series, including release dates, cast, setting, etc., except that it will be wholly separate from the Skywalker saga and the newly announced Rian Johnson trilogy.

What we DO know is that there will be a lot of Star Wars for a long, long time to come instead of a long, long time ago.
