That’s not until five years from now right? I thought that was how long they were going to wait until starting the Star Wars machine back up.

Idk, those dudes seem the type of guys who got lucky they were able to adapt awesome source material. Once that ran out the stuff that came from them was pretty mediocre.
Hopefully they’re still not doing that dumb Confederate tv show they were talking about a while back.

I wonder who they would get to direct
I'll do it. It'll be a two-hour movie about a retired bounty hunter and single mother on Coruscant trying to raise two children with a terrible job while trying desperately to keep herself from falling into old habits or taking new contracts so she doesn't put her family in danger.

Lends more credence to the "they rushed GoT because they wanted to get their SW trilogy going" theory.
I can't believe these characters I loves for so long got destroyed because of some stupid star wars films. Fuck Star Wars.

Assuming they rushed the last season because of these bullshit star wars films.

Notable credits of both men not including GoT:

David Benioff:
Screenwriter for Troy
Writer for The Kite Runner, Brothers, Stay, and Wolverine Origins


D.B. Weiss
Writer for It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Had scripts left in limbo or rejected for an I Am Legend prequel, Ender’s Game and Halo movies
Wrote a novel about video games

I’m concerned. But will still support whatever SW stuff they make.

Oscar winning wrong people that wrote the best Spiderman movie ever made shortly after while all she got was a monumental loss.
Wrote and produced and wit was in production before/at the same time.
And Ron Howard is hardly Bret Ratner.
The guy has 2 Oscar's for Director and Picture.

The weird thing about this is you had to choose JJ...and JJ pretty much did with Star Wars what he did with Star Trek... proving the other guys point. 😂
It's the reverse, he turned Trek into wars with way worse writers

IF Book of Henry caused Trevorrow to lose Ep 9, the current season of GoT should get them kicked from this.
Book of Henry was a huge bomb. No one watched it. On the other hand...

The penultimate episode of “Game of Thrones,” titled “The Bells,” has posted the highest ratings in series history.

The episode was watched by 12.48 million viewers during its initial broadcast, which handily trumps the previous record of 12.07 million, held by the season 7 finale. Given the colossal numbers put up by “The Bells,” an episode which divided opinion among fans and critics, one would expect that the series finale of the HBO behemoth will steal the viewership crown.
GoT is bigger than ever. There's no reason for Disney's accountants to be remotely worried.

I know people find it hard to accept, but while critic reaction for GoT has been going down steadily since season 7, viewership and actual interest in the series is rising higher and higher even at the end.

GRRM to write a Star Wars script, I'm in. the got writers? i'm good to skip whatever they end up with until it hits netflix and i can watch it at a friends house.

The way they appear to have failed to stick the landing on their last big responsibility should be a sign to the people at Disney over their newest big "get".

I'm in my 50s, saw every SW movie on theatrical release, TLJ actually gave me hope for the franchise. Laughing at the alt-right boys complaining that Rian killed SW.

"Actually, the prequels didn't kill Star Wars, it was Rian...also fuck Captain Marvel the next movie will tank lol"

Since you're in your 50s, I hope that you're wise enough to understand that not everyone that dislikes TLJ is part of the alt-right.

No but the reasons they dislike it are either that or head cannon issues
That’s bullshit. There’s plenty of reasons people don’t like it, and I say that as someone who thinks it’s one of the best-written SW films.

IF Book of Henry caused Trevorrow to lose Ep 9, the current season of GoT should get them kicked from this.
It didn’t. Trevorrow got kicked because they weren’t happy with any of the multiple script drafts he turned in.
