The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones left a lot of fans wanting. People were so dissatisfied with how the Game of Thrones writers (D.B. Weiss and David Benioff) handled it, there’s now a million-strong petition to remake it. So when they reportedly were chosen as the writers of the next Star Wars film, fans took their worries to Change.org yet again.
A new petition involving the Game of Thrones writers has yet again arisen. It came soon after it was announced that they would spearhead the writing for Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. The petition requests Disney to remove Benioff and Weiss as the writers for the next Star Wars film since fans believe it might turn out like Game of Thrones did.
Funny enough, the author of the petition has assumed the persona of George R.R. Martin, creator of A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones’ source material). Martin himself was vocal about wanting more seasons for the show adaption for his books and even claimed that the Game of Thrones writers only wanted seven seasons initially.
“I’ve seen a petition called ‘Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers’ going viral on the internet but you should know that’s not a possibility! What is a possibility is stopping a great franchise from being buried by those same writers who caused the first petition to go viral,” claimed “Martin” on Change.org.
At the time of writing, there are 17,000 petition signees and it’s not entirely unheard of to see it blowing up on the same level as the Game of Thrones season 8 remake petition. After all, Star Wars fans can be meticulous, perhaps even more so than Game of Thrones fans.
