Seven hells. D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, the creators and showrunners of Game of Thrones (i.e. the largest TV present on the planet) are taking their talents to Star Wars (i.e. the largest film franchise on the planet).
It’s a vastly surprising transfer, and but one which makes lots of sense. Lucasfilm need to broaden the universe past the Skywalker saga, and Benioff and Weiss have a confirmed observe report in dealing with a large IP and delivering the products.

And there’s one apparent contender ought to they select to adapt one thing.
Knights of the Old Republic, and even simply the Old Republic period, has been crying out for a live-action take – particularly because it’s unlikely there’ll be a worthwhile redo of the video video games – and it shouldn’t simply be a consideration for ‘D&D’, however what they positively make in a galaxy far, far-off; an ideal marriage of story and teller.
