New Series by Benioff/Weiss (NOT Rian Johnson's)
« on: February 06, 2018, 06:14:55 PM »

New movie series announced, by Game of Thrones creators.
I'm more optimistic for their work than Johnson's.

KOTOR would be amazing.

And they've terminated the relationship with Disney - this project is dead. Old news, but posting in case anyone hadn't heard. Ironic, if in fact they rush-wrapped GoT so they could meet Disney's demands to get working on SW...

Just to add some more fuel for the fire (that many Game of Thrones fans would like to use to set those 2 dummies on fire with), the real reason that their Star Wars series was cancelled likely has to do with Disney seeing the insane anger by GoT fans towards the two showrunners for the terrible final season, and for once, Disney using their brain and realizing that they don't want another Rian Johnson or JJ Abrams situation on their hands.

The "save face" story is that the duo want to spend more time on their Netflix series and were forced (pun intended) to tell Disney they couldn't do Star Wars, but people in Hollywood know that it has more to do with their GoT failure and the massive fan anger directed at them.  It's Disney that changed their minds after seeing the fan reaction to GoT and didn't want them working on any SW films.

That official story is also a face-saving measure to protect Kathleen Kennedy's reputation since the two were hired under her regime, and she's already had a string of failures when it comes to other top-level SW people (directors) who get fired or quit... she doesn't need yet another failure cast upon her doorstep.
