1. Disappointed with the story choice. Lots of better options out there but I guess they feel the masses will suck up anything GoT and so the other stories will get done in time.
2. The story choice and timing is ...interesting though. Considering that the wall just came down in the last season and this is getting announced now
I like the idea. So many unanswered questions (possibly) about the white walkers and their motivations/intentions/genesis can be answered via this series. For all the book fags: is this period covered in the book series or just referenced?
It’s covered sort of in A World of Ice and Fire. But there’s like maybe 1,000 words on the topic.
Agree, I think it will be interesting enough and hopefully as similar and dissimilar to GOT as it needs to be.
As long as they put high quality people on it, it will likely be good. Excited to see what they can come up with.
The dragon-lords wouldn’t be the only focus, however: supposedly, much of the prequel takes place on a major melting pot port city in the continent of Sothoryos, which in this series would be relatively analogous to Roman North Africa. Consequently, diversity is more emphasized than in Game of Thrones—not only of race, but of gender and sexual orientation as well. Two main characters are described in this mold: a “platinum blonde black female dragon-rider”, daughter of a white Valyrian father and a foreigner mother, who faces discrimination because of this; and a self-made former slave, described as “a deceptively matronly-looking Asian woman in her 50s, that’s now not only one of the richest citizens but also a major political leader and government intrigue-player.”
If there’s not specific source material they’re drawing from, it’s going to be horrible (much like the last 2.5 seasons).
HBO is doing what HBO does and focusing on social justice in their storytelling.
I get that they’re gonna milk this sucker for all it’s worth, but the fact that they aren’t even using source material from AWOIAF to ride the wave of success is mind-bottling
They have a gold mine of content but they want Django meets dragons. It’s ridiculous.
Execs gonna exec.
You poor thing
Yeah, HBO programming has been a massive failure over the last 20 years.
Can't wait till the last season...
As long as it doesn’t include D&D, it’s got a shot
