After the Game of Thrones’ creators decided to drop the much-hyped deal with Disney's Lucasfilm for a new Star Wars trilogy, the show loyalists are rejoicing the decision. David Benioff and DB Weiss, creators of the show, said that the new multi-year deal with the online streaming platform Netflix has been the reason behind exiting the trilogy deal.
“There are only so many hours in the day, and we felt we could not do justice to both Star Wars and our Netflix projects. So we are regretfully stepping away," said Benioff and Weiss in a statement.
Weiss and Benioff exiting #StarWars -- citing that they're short on time -- which seems like a completely believable answer for when you leave the biggest movie franchise in history before your trilogy ever gets off the ground.— Neil, but even spookier (@rejects) October 29, 2019
Game of Thrones' fans were already disappointed with the duo because they felt the makers rushed with the finale season. Benioff and Weiss were heavily criticized on social media for the eighth season as the fans believed many questions were left unanswered. Fans left wondering that creators finished the show in a hurry citing Star Wars project and then they decided to drop that deal as well.
so you’re telling me that david and dan could’ve made seasons 7 & 8 of game of thrones ten episodes long, but they didn’t because they needed to start their work on the star wars projects, BUT now they have quit the star wars project i- pic.twitter.com/t9dzK48m7y— ben (@starkrings) October 29, 2019
Fans were so furious with the last season of Game of Thrones that they started a campaign on change.org to get the entire season remade. They also 'Google bombed' the duo so that their picture showed up when 'bad writers' was searched. "I don’t think they rushed it. I just think they were extremely incompetent all along, and it got exposed in the later seasons," a user tweeted.
