Star Wars Fans Are Worried About Game Of Thrones Creators’ New Trilogy

Knights of the Old Republic

When Disney announced that Game of Thrones co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were writing a series of new Star Wars films, there was much rejoicing. After all, GoT is the benchmark for quality fantasy, providing years of top-tier entertainment that’s politically complex, full of fascinating and charismatic characters and with extremely satisfying plotting. If they could turn their talents to a galaxy far far away, we might be in for something truly special. Then the final season began airing and it’s safe to say that it hasn’t exactly provided what fans wanted.

I won’t spoil things here, but they consider that the show’s treatment of some important characters has ruined them, with many loudly yelling online that they feel that the eight years they’ve invested in the series have been totally wasted. And now, with Game of Thrones apparently turning out to be an all-time great anticlimax, they’re very worried about these new Star Wars movies.

Here’s just a selection of their responses from Twitter:

Though many Game of Thrones fans think the damage done in the most recent episode cannot be fixed, it’s worth remembering that there’s still one outing left to go. Who knows, maybe it’ll open with Jon Snow stepping out of the shower and talking about the crazy dream he had about Daenerys and her dragons?

All that said, saner voices have prevailed and reminded everyone to get a sense of perspective, with @EpicVoiceGuy saying:

I think this hits the nail on the head and personally, I can’t wait to see what David Benioff and D.B. Weiss come up with for Star Wars. With The Rise of Skywalker set to cap off the Skywalker Saga, the road is free for them to tell whatever story they want, pretty much free of the shackles of continuity. But if they do screw this up, then the howls of misery and fury from the internet will rival even that created in King’s Landing by a very pissed off blonde and her pet dragon.
