The creator of the saga, George R.R. Martin, has ensured that the derived series will take place about 5000 years before the original
After his eighth and final season, Game of Thrones will have a prequel and the creator of the saga George R.R. Martin was more precise, clarifying exactly when the new series will be defined.
"10,000 years is mentioned in the novels." But there are also places where teachers say: "No, no, there were 10,000, there were 5,000 …" So I think it's closer to 5,000 years " "said the writer in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
He also talked about the scenario in which the spin off will occur.
There are no Targaryens: Valyria has just begun to rise with its dragons and the great empire that it has built. We are dealing with a different and older world and we hope it is part of the fun of the series, "he said, generating great expectations among faithful followers of epic production.
Everything indicates that the series will be defined before the ascension to the power of the Targaryen family, who were the unique knights of the dragon after the destruction of Valyria.
So it seems clear that the series will not include dragons at least in its initial stretch … if that happens.
Therefore, in the Poniente of the past there will be no dragons. An element the writer was going to discard throughout the saga, but that finally included. "I considered some time for not having dragons," Martin revealed.
"I wanted the Targaryen symbol to be the dragons, but I played with the idea that maybe it was like a psionic power." My friend and fantasy writer Phyllis Eisenstein was the one who persuaded me to put the dragons and I dedicated the third book. I think that was the right decision, "continued the famous author.
The prequel pilot episode will star Naomi Watts and will chronicle "the world's descent from the golden age of heroes to their darkest moment." Only one thing is certain: from the horrible secrets of Westeros history to the true origin of the White Walkers, the mysteries of the Orient, even the Stark of legend … is not the story we think we know, "says the synopsis.
For now, the eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones," the series that has swept since its debut with awards and nominations, will debut in April 2019 and, as expected, the episodes that are part of the final installment will have a duration that will exceed 60 minutes each.
