  |  @   |  

Though Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be the final chapter of the Skywalker saga, the Star Wars hype doesn’t stop there. It will live on through new stories that will be told by The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson and Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

And probably won’t for a while since they are working on other projects – Johnson is finishing Knives Out, and Benioff and Weiss are overseeing the final season of Game of Thrones.

From The Jungle Book and Iron Man director Jon Favreau, the first ever live-action Star Wars TV show will “follow the travels of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic”¦” Though that seemed a bit vague at the time, we knew it would follow the title character and the field of bounty hunting.
