In an exciting announcement on the official Star Wars website. Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will leave Westeros after the final season of G.O.T. and tackle the Star Wars universe.

Kathleen Kennedy had this to say:
“David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today. Their command of complex characters, depth of story and richness of mythology will break new ground and boldly push Star Wars in ways I find incredibly exciting.”
