You understood, a prequel of Game of Thrones is still under discussion and raise the hopes of fans who would like to learn more about the universe of the series and the world created by George RR Martin. As usual, so we come back to you to wonder what exactly this prequel might speak still awaited by fans. Although with a universe like this, it is not missing opportunities and George RR Martin has already given enough material to make a new hit series. Again, hard to talk about without prequel about the rebellion of Robert Baratheon, which saw the end of the reign of the Targaryen and the beginning of a new era for King’s Landing and to Westeros . The story takes place relatively recently in the past to enable us to see the characters we know – Robert, Ned Stark, Lannister … – and make a concrete link with the Game of Thrones series.
For others, it would be interesting to adapt Adventures of Dunk and Egg / The Tales of Dunk and Egg taking place about 90 years before the events of the Iron Throne and who, under the new format, recount the stories of Sir Duncan the Tall / Duncan Le Grand, nicknamed Dunk, and his squire called “Egg / Egg who later became King Aegon V Targaryen. the ability to still go a little further back to talk about the fall of Valyria also would prove more interesting though, in budgetary terms, it could be either a spin-off a bit too expensive to achieve . Indeed it impliquerai the presence of many dragons and expensive special effects that the series and thus a spin-off may not be could afford. But venturing into unknown territory would also be an option and would perhaps showrunners to take more liberties and risks. This could include exploring some countries known unknowns see as the continent of Sothoryos supposed to be south Essos. In short, the possibilities are endless and we hope to see this project materialize prequel one day … Waiting to hear, discover a possible response to criticism of violence and sex in the series in a cut scene season 6 Game of Thrones !
