In case you missed it over the weekend, the 'Game of Thrones' bosses DB Weiss and David Benioff quit 'Star Wars'.
The duo were set to write and produce a new trilogy in a galaxy far, far away. They'd also signed on to pen other titles in a new 'Star Wars' series.
They blamed the 5-year Netflix deal that they signed back in August (worth a reported $250 million) as the reason. The go-to "creative differences" have also been sited as a reason for their departure.
Variety recently wrote about how Benioff and Weiss had ambitious plans and a new direction for 'Star Wars'.
They wanted their works to exist apart from the Skywalker family saga that comprised the franchise’s primary nine-film series.
The 'Star Wars' period the pair had intended to explore how the Jedi came to exist. They would've made a trilogy on the subject matter, working as a prequel.
However, Lucasfilm execs and the creators began to diverge, especially after the Netflix deal.
There's been a lot of rumblings in the 'Game of Thrones' world too as the prequel series starring Naomi Watts has been cancelled.
Meanwhile, Emilia Clarke aka Daenerys finally revealed who was responsible for the 'coffee cup' gaffe.
