Game of Thrones - HBO Max thinks of an animated series?
The buzz around Game of Thrones continues. Although the TV series has long since ended, not without queues still alive between viewers and insiders about the goodness especially of the eighth and last season, and with the books instead stuck in a limbo from which they do not seem to be able to get out. that is George RR's pen and mind Martin, the HBO Max platform continues to think how to expand one of the highest paying franchises of recent years.

With two spin-offs in full development both prequels to the original series, HBO Max would be testing the waters now for a animated series obviously reserved for an adult audience.

According to what was reported late yesterday by THR, the management of the streaming platform would have already had preliminary talks with various writers but also with the George RR himself Martin on the development of the animated series so that it can be developed in an organic way with what is the original saga.

For the moment no other rumors are given on the project nor if it is a prequel, a sequel or an original story set in the fantasy universe of novels.

HBO Max and WarnerMedia would be testing the ground for a massive exploitation of Game of Thrones in a similar way to what would be happening with DC, Harry Potter and others franchise.

Game of Thrones - the prequels

As mentioned above, there are two prequel spin-offs of Game of Thrones in development.

The first is House of the Dragon. The series will be based on the novel Fire and Blood by George RR Martin, a literary prequel to the A Song of Ice and Fire series that made him famous and which tells the story of Westeros over a span of 150 years preceding the events that we have known. The plot will involve the thread of events that inevitably led to the Targaryen Civil War.

Director of the series will be Miguel Sapochnik (who already directed some of the most popular episodes of Game of Thrones including “The Battle of the Bastards”), who will join Ryan Condal in the role of lead writer. George RR Martin has stated that he would like to collaborate on the writing of a few episodes, but not before finishing work on The Winds of Winter (so, given the background, his participation is not to be taken for granted).

Among the main protagonists we will see Alicent Hightower, the second wife of King Viserys, gifted with both grace and political acumen, is described as "the most beautiful woman of the Seven Kingdoms", played by Olivia Cooke (Art3mis in Ready Player One). Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen is the king's eldest daughter, a pure-blooded child of Valyria and as such a knight of dragons; she will be played by Emma D ’Arcy (Truth Seekers). Prince Daemon Targaryen, played by Matt Smith (Doctor Who, The Crown, Terminator Genisys) is the younger brother of King Viserys and heir to the throne, he too has pure dragon blood and therefore can ride dragons, as well as being described as an unrivaled warrior; the development of him however could reserve some surprises, after all it is said that: “every time a Targaryen is born the gods throw a coin in the air…”. King Viserys I Targaryen (not to be confused with the "Mad King" Viserys II) was chosen by the lords of Westeros to succeed the old king, Jaehaerys Targaryen, and is described as a friendly, kind and respectable man; will be played by Paddy Considine (Peaky Blinders, The Outsider).

The second, still untitled, should instead be the adaptation of the anthology series of short stories, always set in the universe of the main novels, entitled Tales of Dunk and Egg.

Waiting for the new series purchased Game of Thrones (the complete series) in blu-ray.
