"Game of Thrones" Creators To Helm "Star Wars" Films

"Game of Thrones" Creators To Helm "Star Wars" Films

Since Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service started its I Need My Space campaign - urging drivers not to get in the way of emergency vehicles - it has gained support from across the county and the UK.

Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and DB Weiss are to write and produce a new series of films in the Star Wars franchise, with the duo describing themselves as "honoured", "a little terrified" and "so excited". Inevitably one of these is to be a Star Wars live-action series.

As the shows are being created and are going to be set to release, we are also seeing that they are only going to be available for viewers on the Disney streaming service that is soon to be released as well.

For the Cavs, it doesn't get easier as they now embark on a stretch of four of five games on the road before the All-Star break. It won't be easy, but whether the Cavs get to a fourth straight Finals could depend upon how bold he is at the trade deadline.

When asked why the pair weren't doing a Star Wars series, Disney CEO Bob Iger said their interest was in creating Star Wars films. The company is still in the works of finalizing a deal for the various projects. "We've mentioned that and we are close to being able to reveal at least one of the entities that is developing that for us".

In November, Disney had announced that Johnson, director of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", would write and direct the first of a new trilogy of films in the sci-fi franchise that would bring new characters and worlds not yet explored on screen. There is such a thing as overworking something to the point of it losing it's appeal; However, we are assuming that these projects in the works will have the opposite effect, as the production of the films has done astronomically well in recent years. They include 2016's "Rogue One", and May 2018 release "Solo: A Star Wars Story", which follows the origins of the roguish smuggler Han Solo, made famous by Harrison Ford in the original 1977 movie. "There's just so much potential and I can't wait to jump into it".
