Game of Thrones

Twitter’s best jokes about Game of Thrones and Star Wars joining forces

The internet may have broken on Tuesday with news that Game of Thrones show runners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are going to write and produce Star Wars films (that’s the third Star Wars series in development, if you’re counting).

Twitter was quick to make jokes combining the two epic franchises, and to criticize this particular employment decision from Disney and Lucasfilm

Many were not excited about Benioff and Weiss joining Star Wars given the current movement to uplift women and people of color. Additionally, Thrones’ treatment of women has been criticized since the beginning for gratuitous nudity, “sexposition,” and the use of rape as a plot device.
