Keep on reading to know more.

What do we know about it

As it became known on Tuesday, Star Wars fans will get three more saga episodes that will be written and produced by “Game of Thrones” creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

The new series will be separate from the main episodic Skywalker saga that started with “Star Wars: A New Hope” and is slated to wrap up with 2019’s “Star Wars: Episode IX.” It will also exist independently from a Rian Johnson-helmed series that was announced last year, according to Variety.

According to the release, the films will be distinct from the traditional “saga” films.

Why they choose Benioff and Weiss?

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss “Game of Thrones” became a massive hit that mixed nudity, dragons, spectacle and political wrangling. Anyway, it will end its run on HBO in 2019, when a final season will be released.

“David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, in a statement. “Their command of complex characters, depth of story and richness of mythology will break new ground and boldly push Star Wars in ways I find incredibly exciting.”

“In the summer of 1977 we traveled to a galaxy far, far away, and we’ve been dreaming of it ever since,” Benioff and Weiss said in a joint statement. “We are honored by the opportunity, a little terrified by the responsibility, and so excited to get started as soon as the final season of ‘Game of Thrones’ is complete.”

Unfortunately, Disney did not announce when the movies will hit theaters.

What to expect from new films?

Taking into account our knowledge about Benioff and Weiss writing style (based on “Game of Thrones” series) and Star Wars stories editorial team of Nexter.org decided to write our own theories about the upcoming saga episodes.

The Same Universe Theory

One of the most viral theory is to unite GoT and Star Wars in one universe.

Reddit user NotCordelia claims “there are a few reasons this would make sense”.

Imagine if the islands of Westeros and Essos were on a planet in that galaxy far, far away. The first piece of evidence is the magic used in George RR Martin’s fantasy world.

The Reddit user argues: [The magic can] be attributed to midi-chlorians binding things together and the like.”

A Star Wars Episode VIII script leak recently suggested Darth Vader has a father by the Force-sensitive organisms. But in Game of Thrones, it’s Bran Stark would see visions across the world, in the same way, that those who use the Force in Star Wars can see the past and future.

Remember red comet seen from Winterfell? “For me, the central reasoning is the Star Killer Base weapon firing is clearly visible from the planet of Game of Thrones/ASOIAF

“The red comet that streaks across the sky is clearly the projection of a star’s energy from the weapon.”

The other suggestion concerns the origins of the dragons being related to the Death Star’s destruction. The Reddit user adds: “Further, the people of Essos describe in GoT/ASOIAF that dragons came from a moon smashing apart.

“Maybe that is a Death Star being destroyed, or perhaps another space station or ship.”

Maybe we’ll see this fan’s theory on the screens soon.

Theory 2 – Boba Fett Star Games

The trilogy is going to be about Boba Fett and his life.

Firstly we see his childhood and strict father – Jango Fett – who created Boba as a clone of himself and lately raised as his son.

Jango taught his son survival and hand-to-hand combat skills. Boba became a great warrior.

He is cruel and cold-hearted and the only love of his life is a clone-sister, who wants to conquer the Galaxy after their father Jango was killed.

The only person who can confront them is Princess Leia and her three dragons.

Theory 3 – Bran Vader and The Phantom Menace

Imagine a story about a young boy who raised without a father on the cold planet somewhere in the Galaxy.

He is a smart and active boy who adores piloting and mechanics. One day after an accident he discovers that he’s unable to walk. After that, he also finds out he can foresee the future.

Through the years we observe how he gets to Jedi General in the Grand Army of the Republic and trains hard.

He feels the power and became stronger day by day. Later he’ll give in to the dark side and become a Bran Vader and takes the Iron Throne.
