After eight magnificent seasons, Game of Thrones is officially ending next year. If, like us, you were unsure of what could possibly come next to top the HBO blockbuster, you're going to love this news...

According to Variety, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the show's creators, will write and produce a new trilogy of Star Wars films. The pair's trilogy will reportedly not follow on from any previous Star Wars storylines, likely giving them freedom to create an epic saga all of their own.
