Creator of Saga, George R.R. Martin, assured that the derived series would take place around 5000 years before the original
After the eighth and final season, Game of Thrones will have prequel, and the creator of the saga George R.R. Martin has been more accurate, clarifying exactly when a new series will be set.
"10,000 years are mentioned in novels. But there is also a place where the teachers say: No, no, it's not 10,000, that's 5,000 … So I think it's closer to 5,000 years, "the author said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
He also talked about the scenario where the spin off will take place.
"Poniente is a very different place. There is no Landing of the King. There is no Iron Throne. There is no Targaryens: Valyria has only just begun to ride with dragons and the great kingdom it has built. We deal with different and older worlds and we hope this is part of the fun of this series, "he explained, producing great hope among loyal followers of epic production.
Everything shows that the series will be set before going up to the power of the Targaryen family, who are the only dragon riders after the destruction of Valyria.
Therefore, it seems clear that this series won't include dragons at least in the initial stretch … if that ever happened.
Therefore, in the Poniente there would be no dragons. The element that the writer will throw in the whole saga, but that is finally included. "I consider some time not to have a dragon," Martin said.
"I want the Targaryen symbol to be a dragon, but I play with the idea that it might be like psionic power. My friend and fantasy writer Phyllis Eisenstein was the one who convinced me to put dragons, and I dedicated the third book. And I thought it was the right decision , "continued the famous writer.
The pilot episode of the prequel will star Naomi Watts and will tell "the descent of the world from the golden age of the hero to the darkest moment. Only one thing is certain: from the terrible secrets of Westeros history to the original White Walker, the Eastern mystery, even Starks of the legend. … not a story we think we know, "read the synopsis. .
For now, the eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones", the series that has swept since the premiere with awards and nominations, will debut in April 2019 and, as anticipated, episodes that are part of their final delivery will have a duration that will exceed 60 minutes each.
