‘Game of Thrones’ cre­ators step away from ‘Star Wars’

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - NEWS -

NEW YORK >> The co-cre­ators of the “Game of Thrones” se­ries will not be trav­el­ing to a galaxy far, far away.

David Be­nioff and D.B. Weiss are part­ing ways with an up­com­ing “Star Wars” film tril­ogy sched­uled to be­gin in 2022 that they were slated to lead, the duo an­nounced in a state­ment to Dead­line.

“We love ‘Star Wars,’ “Be­nioff and Weiss said. “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.

“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. So we are re­gret­fully step­ping away.”
