If Rogue One’s finale wasn’t already heartbreaking enough, Lucasfilm has announced that Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have been signed up to write and produce a new series of Star Wars films in which every character is probably, definitely going to die.

The new movies will apparently be separate from the episodic stuff and Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson’s own trilogy, so I’m assuming these will be part of the anthology series instead. Or maybe something else entirely? I dunno, but I think the ewoks are overdue for a gritty, gratuitously violent reboot with full-frontal nudity and incest. Wait, A New Hope already did the incest thing.


“In the summer of 1977 we travelled to a galaxy far, far away, and we’ve been dreaming of it ever since,” Benioff and Weiss told press. “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.”

No other info about the new series is available for the moment, but don’t let that stop you from complaining about it, anyway.
