Star Wars : le projet avec les créateurs de Game of Thrones abandonné, les vraies raisons dévoilées

Star Wars : the project with the creators of Game of Thrones (David Benioff and D. B. Weiss) abandoned, these are the real reasons

David Benioff and D. B. Weiss had themselves announced it : they had to abandon the new Star Wars trilogy that they had to come up with Lucasfilm. Except that the creators of Game of Thrones would not have said it all. In addition to the problem of agenda that they have mentioned, these are the real reasons which have prompted to leave the project.

They would have had different creative on Star Wars

While a trailer from the epic Star Wars 9 : the Ascent of Skywalker with Rey confronts Kylo has been revealed (the film will be released on 18 December 2019 at the cinema), we know a little more about the new trilogy of Star Wars. Or rather, it was learned why the creators of Game of Thrones , David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, have had to abandon the project. At the beginning, they had been chosen to create a separate history of the saga, Skywalker. A series of films that would have started on the big screen in 2022.

But the two filmmakers have recently announced having to leave the ship because “there are not enough hours in a day, and we had the feeling that we could not make justice to both Star Wars and our plans for Netflix”. Except that the truth, according to sources of Variety, and that is that David Benioff and D. B. Weiss are said to have had “differences creative” with the leadership of Lucasfilm. The duo wanted to write on the origin of the Jedi, how they are born. A part of the intergalactic storyline that would not have wowed the production.

Their contract with Netflix would not have liked to Lucasfilm

The other real reason for their abandonment of the project, according to sources of the Hollywood Reporter this time, it is their recent contract with Netflix, with a value of $ 250 million. Kathleen Kennedy, the producer and president principal of Lucasfilm, would not have appreciated that the creators of Game of Thrones to sign with their competitor. All the more that this deal has seen the day when Disney will launch Disney+, a platform to rival Netflix. Bad timing so, which led to the two show runners of the need to leave aside their ideas and desires for Star Wars.
