Game Of Thrones’ Duo David Benioff & D.B. Weiss have exited their Star Wars trilogy, the first of which was set to release in December 2022.
The pair cited their historic deal with Netflix as the reason for their exit. They said their enthusiasm for Star Wars remains boundless but, regrettably, their schedule is full up.
“We love Star Wars,” the pair 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. 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.”
