‘Game of Thrones’ creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss leave ‘Star Wars’ project

The force is no longer with “Game of Thrones” creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

The pair, who were set to helm the next “Star Wars” cinematic trilogy, have left the project as of Monday because of scheduling conflicts caused by their recent deal with Netflix, according to Deadline.

The forthcoming saga, slated to launch in 2022, will succeed the Skywalker period, which started in 1977 with “A New Hope” and ends in December with “The Rise of Skywalker.”

“We love ‘Star Wars,’” the creative duo said in a statement to Deadline. “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.”

The new trilogy will eventually join a rapidly growing “Star Wars” slate, bolstered by Disney’s inaugural streaming service, Disney+, which goes live next month and promises no shortage of content from a galaxy far, far away.

Those are some shoes to fill IMO and a bummer. Was excited to see what they could do.
