'GOT' Creators David Benioff & D.B. Weiss Exit 'Star Wars' Deal

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were supposed to launch the next trilogy in the Star Wars film franchise, but the guys have walked away from their deal with Disney and Lucasfilm.

The new film trilogy was slated to launch in 2022 and was going to follow a post-Skywalker era.

“We love Star Wars,” the pair told Deadline in a statement. “When George Lucas built it, he built us too. Getting to talk about Star Wars with him and the current Star Wars team was the thrill of a lifetime, and we will always be indebted to the saga that changed everything.”

The reason for their departure from the deal is their deal with Netflix. They simply don’t have the time to work on Star Wars right now, but the door is still open.

“There are only so many hours in the day, and we felt we could not do justice to both Star Wars and our Netflix projects,” they said. “So we are regretfully stepping away.”

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said, “David Benioff and Dan Weiss are incredible storytellers. We hope to include them in the journey forward when they are able to step away from their busy schedule to focus on Star Wars.”

If you aren’t aware, Benioff and Weiss are the creators of HBO’s smash hit series Game of Thrones.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige Is Developing a 'Star Wars' Movie

Kevin Feige is developing a Star Wars movie for Lucasfilm, Disney confirmed on Wednesday (September 25) according to THR.

The 46-year-old president of Marvel Studios reportedly discussed the idea with Lucasfilm head Katheleen Kennedy and studio co-chairmen Alan Horn and Alan Bergman.

“We are excited about the projects Kathy and the Lucasfilm team are working on, not only in terms of Star Wars, but also Indiana Jones and reaching into other parts of the company including Children of Blood and Bone with Emma Watts and Fox. With the close of the Skywalker Saga, Kathy is pursuing a new era in Star Wars storytelling, and knowing what a die-hard fan Kevin is, it made sense for these two extraordinary producers to work on a Star Wars film together,” said Alan Horn in a statement.

They will work on new Star Wars content after the Skywalker Saga ends on December 20 with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

'The Mandalorian' Creators Reveal New Details About the Upcoming 'Star Wars' Series

The first look at the Star Wars series The Mandalorian is on the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s October 2019 issue, out on newsstands on September 12.

Here’s what the show’s cast and crew said about the upcoming first live-action Star Wars Disney+ series…

Showrunner Jon Favreau on the show: “It’s like after the Roman Empire falls, or when you don’t have a centralized shogun in Japan­ — and, of course, the Old West, when there wasn’t any government in the areas that had not yet been settled. Those are also cinematic tropes in films that originally inspired George Lucas to make Star Wars.”

On the lead character, who is obscured by a mask: “What’s remarkable is when you see the whole stretch of the first season how engaging the character is. It’s amazing how many Star Wars characters are emotionally engaging that aren’t even anthropomorphic. R2-D2 is my favorite character and he barely has an eye.”

Producer Dave Filoni on the series: “I’ve seen a lot of Star Wars. And what’s most exciting to me is that I am very confident we did some things — and fans will see things — that have never been seen before.”
