‘Game of Thrones’ Creators to Write, Produce New ‘Star Wars’ Series of Films

Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are going to write and produce a new series of Star Wars films, Disney announced on Tuesday.
The new series will be separate from the main episodic Skywalker saga that started with Star Wars: A New Hope and is slated to wrap up with 2019’s Star Wars: Episode IX. It will also exist independently from a Rian Johnson-helmed series that was announced last year.
