SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY's Emilia Clarke Talks GAME OF THRONES Creators Joining The STAR WARS Franchise

With Game of Thrones creators David Benioff & DB Weiss soon to join the Star Wars universe, Solo: A Star Wars Story's Emilia Clarke shares her thoughts on what the showrunners will bring to the franchise.

When Star Wars: Episode IX hits theatres next December the main Star Wars saga as we know it will be over. Despite this, LucasFilm and Disney are determined to continue giving us films set in the popular science-fiction universe and along with the "A Star Wars Story" banner, we will soon be getting a couple of standalone film trilogies as well.
Two of these have been announced thus far, the first of which will come from The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson who is currently working on the story, and the other from the creators of Game of Thrones David Benioff and DB Weiss. who will commence work on the project when the HBO show concludes with its next season.

Actress Emilia Clarke is in the unique position of having both worked with the duo on Game of Thrones and appearing in Solo: A Star Wars Story. This makes her the perfect person to comment on the intersectionality of this franchise and Benioff & Weiss. While speaking to Variety, the Terminator Genisys star did just that. 
"What they brought to fantasy as a genre that people are like, appreciating on a much grander scale, putting all of that creativity and all of that skill and intellect into something that already has so much, I think it's just gonna be like Star Wars on acid. I think it'll be amazing. I can't wait."

There's no word on what the pair have in store for the franchise but Disney CEO Bob Iger did reveal that "they're focused on a point in time in the Star Wars mythology," with LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy adding that Benioff and Weiss "will break new ground and boldly push Star Wars in ways I find incredibly exciting.”
