It was announced today on the Star Warswebsite that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the showrunners behind HBO’s hit adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire books, will be writing and producing their own series of films.
“David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today,” Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said in a statement. “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.”
According to the release, the films will be distinct from the traditional “saga” films, as well as Johnson’s new trilogy.
