Game of Thrones Founders David Benioff, DB Weiss no longer involved with Brand New Star Wars trilogy

Last updated on October 29, 2019

Game of Thrones founders David Benioff and DB Weiss have exited their bargain with Lucasfilm to create a brand new Star Wars trilogy. It was previously confirmed the duo is working on the new trilogy, that will stick to the forthcoming The growth of Skywalker. The first installment was expected to bow in 2022.

However, their brand new multi-year bargain with streamer Netflix was a deterrent, after which they decided to opt-out of the pact with Lucasfilm, reported Deadline. When George Lucas constructed it, he assembled us also. Getting to chat about Star Wars with him along with the existing Star Wars group was the delight of life, and we’ll remain indebted to the saga that changed what.

“However there are just so many hours in the daytime, and we believed we couldn’t do justice to both Star Wars and also our Netflix jobs. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy reported the studio expects to work together with the 2 authors daily.

We hope to incorporate them in the travel forward when they can resign from their hectic schedule to concentrate on Star Wars,” she explained. Benioff and Weiss were declared as functioning on a brand new trilogy of their treasured sci-fi franchise out of Lucasfilm this past year. They have been identified by Kennedy as being part of talks during the next decade record of Star Wars stories.

But, Benioff and Weiss weren’t the ones operating on a followup Star Wars trilogy. Filmmaker Rian Johnson, who headed the franchise’s 2017 film The Last Jedi, can also be set to create a followup trilogy that’s expected to center around brand new characters.

In any case, the studio includes lined-up a range of spin-off jobs — The Mandalorian, an Obi-Wan Kenobi series and Rogue One prequel series — which are put to bow on its parent company Disney’s upcoming streaming agency Disney+.

It was reported that Lucasfilm’s sister firm, Marvel Studios’ honcho Kevin Feige is also working on a possible Star Wars film.
