David Benioff and D.B. Weiss to Write and Produce a New Series of Star Wars Films

Yes, the Game of Thrones show runners. Yes, this is different than the Rian Johnson spin-offs. Obviously, we’re going to hit a saturation point with Star Wars spin-offs at some point. But presumably Disney thinks it will be after they both create new stories then connect them all, Marvel Cinematic Universe-style. It could be 20 years...

Also, it feels like Disney is just rubbing it what a steal they got in the Lucasfilm deal at this point (though yes, they've accelerated it). Bonus: how weird to use your PR to tout IP you don't own (Game of Thrones) -- yet?
