Holy shit, Disney just announced that the creators of HBO's hit fantasy series Game of Thrones — David Benioff and D.B. Weiss — are going to write and produce a new series of Star Wars films.

This marks some serious expansion in the Star Wars universe. Rian Johnson, who directed The Last Jedi, was tasked with helming a whole new trilogy for the series just this past November.

"These new films will be separate from both the episodic Skywalker saga, and the recently announced trilogy being developed by Rian Johnson, writer-director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi," Disney clarified in the statement.
