What are the new “Star Wars” movies about?
To directly answer the subtitle question: You don’t know. It is officially known that the creators of “Game Of Thrones”, David Benioff and DB Weiss, will be responsible for the first of the three “Star Wars” films (that is, they will produce and set the story). We assume: The 2024 and 2026 “Star Wars” movies will also come from Benioff / Weiss, after all they were engaged in a whole series of new Star Wars. Rian Johnson’s new “Star Wars” trilogy, which is also being planned, should follow later.
Until recently, many fans assumed that Benioff and Weiss would make a series of movies in the style of the video game “Knights Of The Old Republic,” set a few thousand years before the popular movies. However, in late May 2019, it emerged that screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis (“Altered Carbon”) had been commissioned to write a film trilogy of “Knights of the Old Republic”.
Since Benioff and Weiss officially came to Lucasfilm with their own idea, their story should be about something else. – but it could also be set in the “Star Wars” past, when the Jedi and the Sith (damn many Sith) were waging open warfare. In any case, the Benioff / Weiss trilogy will have little to do with episodes 1 to 9, since this saga will end on December 18, 2019: Then “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” begins and with this film the story ends. around Anakin’s family, Luke and Leia.
