The best place to escape winter might be a galaxy far, far away. “Game of Thrones” creators and executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are making a new series of “Star Wars” movies.
Disney announced Tuesday that Benioff and Weiss will write and produce a new series of films separate from both the Skywalker saga — the main episodic series of “Star Wars” films that kicked off with 1977’s “A New Hope” — and the previously announced trilogy being developed by “The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson.
“In the summer of 1977 we traveled to a galaxy far, far away, and we’ve been dreaming of it ever since,” said Benioff and Weiss 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.”
