TV adaptation have reportedly left their upcoming
trilogy project, citing a busy schedule.
"[T]here 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 sent to Hollywood Reporter.
It's been a big couple of weeks for Star Wars, with the release of the final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and The Mandalorian. The Benioff and Weiss trilogy may be no more, but there will be no shortage of Star Wars content over the next few years.
