Winter is coming to the galaxy far, far away (I wonder how many people started their blog posts like that!) as David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are revealed to be writing and developing a new series of Star Wars films...

The movies will be separate from the Skywalker saga and the new trilogy being developed by Rian Johnson. Watch Andi Gutierrez reveal the news in the video below... 

Kathleen Kennedy made the following statement-

David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today. 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.
— Kathleen Kennedy

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss released their own statement saying -

In the summer of 1977, we travelled to a galaxy far, far away, and we’ve been dreaming of it ever since. We are honoured 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.
— David Benioff and D.B. Weiss

Nothing more is known about the new series of films. Now release dates are set, not even how many films we can expect. 

Wow, what a week this has turned out to be eh? Two new Solo trailers, four new Solo posters and now a new series of films. The future of Star Wars fandom is certainly looking bright.

Thank you for reading,
