While the newest Star Wars trilogy will come to a close, thanks to the efforts of J.J. Abrams, a fresh take on the sci-fi mythos is fast approaching.
Creators and showrunners of HBO’s hit TV show Game of Thrones David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will be taking on the story taking place once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away.
Not much of the plot has been revealed as of yet, but the duo will not be venturing anywhere near the Skywalker saga, the current trilogy, or Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson’s upcoming trilogy. CEO of Disney, Bob Iger, spoke about the future of the franchise during Disney’s Q1 earnings call, discussing when the new series of movies could take place in the timeline.
