David Benioff & D.B. Weiss Are No Longer Making Star Wars Movies

David Benioff & D.B. Weiss Are No Longer Making Star Wars Movies


In a bit of shocking news that broke early Tuesday morning, Game of Thrones creators David Benioff & D.B. Weiss are no longer making their Star Wars movies.

“We love Star Wars,” the pair said to Deadline, which broke the news. “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.”

Benioff and Weiss cited their new contract with Netflix as the reason why they had to drop out of the franchise.


“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.”

And yet, despite the exit, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy kept the door open for their return.

“David Benioff and Dan Weiss are incredible storytellers,” Kennedy told Deadline. “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.”

Of course, Benioff and Weiss were the brains behind not just Game of Thrones, but what was expected to be the next live-action Star Wars film after December’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Whether that means the 2022 release date will go to a Rian Johnson film, a Kevin Feige-produced film, or something else entirely, we do not yet know. But it won’t be Benioff and Weiss’s film, that’s all we know.

We’ll continue to follow this story as it develops and surely hear more as The Rise of Skywalker nears release.

They dodge a bullet. Star Wars is a sinking ship with the way Disney is handling them. They fucking them up like they did muppets and marvel. Fuck you, Bob Iger! FUCKKK YOUUUUUUUUU!

It must be one hell of a project to pass over Star wars.

Anyways, they proved they are only good when they got source material to adapt.

Star Wars hasn't been bad since Disney took it over. The new trilogy is great. Those curses its name will be singing its praises in 10 years just like the prequels.

What do you want? More Midi-chlorians?

Nah, I still hate the prequels. But, I will say they are still better than the new Disney movies.

I didn't hate the prequels when they came out. I just hated that they were prequels and i already knew how it would end.
Disney star wars is terrible. It spits all over the legacy of the series and it's extremely badly written. Mary Sue Rey? Big planet sized weapon that required imense materials but no one knew about? Beam that travels through space faster than light and magically bends? God, i'll take midichlorians over that any day. They were an explanation of the force rather than "magic".

With that said, Rogue one was alright and the new mandalorian series too. New trilogy though? Complete and utter garbage.

Rey knew more about the force just from Han Solo telling her about it and figured out how to do it without being taught! Damn, Yoda is a terrible teacher compared to Han Solo. She became a jedi master faster than Luke did!

The actors that play Finn, Poe and Rey have all said this is their last star wars and they won't do another no matter how much they are offered.
