Last week, Disney revealed three different untitled Star Wars release dates. This week, we learned that the first release date belongs to the very first installment in Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss’ Star Wars trilogy.
While some celebrate the revelation, many others express apprehension over Benioff and Weiss’ upcoming trilogy. Game of Thrones may have become a massive success, however, there have been multiple complaints regarding the show’s last two seasons. The series’ rushed pace, unearned moments, and storytelling mistakes have sparked ire, and now fans aren’t quite sure whether or not they trust Benioff and Weiss with the Star Wars franchise.
Taking to Twitter, unhappy Game of Thrones fans have been expressing their concern, suggesting that Benioff and Weiss (informally known as “D & D”), might ruin the franchise.
Check out some of the tweets down below:
d&d have already ruined GoT now they’re gonna ruin Star Wars??? who thought this was a good idea?? i need a word— ????? ☾ (@MysaTheLesbian) May 14, 2019
Of course, we understand why Benioff and Weiss’ fans would be concerned. Game of Thrones is one of the biggest series on television today. Seeing ratings dip to an all-time low during the last season of the series is terribly disappointing.
Still, we have to give D & D the benefit of the doubt. The two could very well revitalize the Star Wars franchise. Besides, the two have all the time in the world to work on the film. Disney is giving the franchise a gap after the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. We’ll just have to put our faith in Lucasfilm.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premieres December 20, 2019.
