Game Of Thrones showrunning duo David Benioff and D.B. Weiss may soon be moving from Whiter Walkers to Ewoks.

The pair is set to write and produce a new series of Star Wars movies, separate from both the Skywalker saga and the recently announced Rian Johnson trilogy.

The timing seems perfect, with Star Wars: Episode IX scheduled to close out the series December 20, 2019, the same year Game Of Thrones is set to conclude.

Lucasfilm Announces New Star Wars Movie Series From Game Of Thrones Producers

The announcement was shared on StarWars.com, where Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy was quoted calling Benioff and Weiss “the best storytellers working today.” She added, ““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.”

As for Benioff and Weiss themselves, both expressed their own excitement in a joint statement:

In the summer of 1977 we traveled to a galaxy far, far away, and we’ve been dreaming of it ever since. 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.

The final season of Game Of Thrones is currently in production, with six episodes wrapping up the series aiming to air sometime next year.
