  1. “The Game of Thrones universe is so rich with stories,” said HBO programming president Casey Bloys. “We look forward to exploring the origins of House Targaryen and the earlier days of Westeros along with Miguel, Ryan and George.” From Verge: The goal is to eventually have the events of the new series lead up to The Dance of the Dragons. It’s a major moment in the Seven Kingdoms history, leading to an all out civil war between two rival faction of House Targaryen Huh-I wonder what that could mean! From the origins of House Targaryen leading up to the Dance of Dragons... Like I have said, it's an ANTHOLOGY SHOW.
  2. Ah-I shall defer to your knowledge of the reporters credential. I'm not at all against the idea of multiple season shows for each of the Targaryean kings, just concerned about how thematically a Hollywood mind could situate certain branches of Martins material. I doubt they would tack the regency as the final season or seasons of a Dance show because they could very easily seem anticlimactic. A Jaehaerys show runs the risk of seeming boring compared to others, whereas if it were apart of the anthology show it could be seen as a sort of bridging to a climax(the Dance). Also how would they situate all these different shows in the minds of the general audience who doesn't know the timeline, would that impact which they pick first or save to last(doing the Dance before the Conquest is a HORRIBLE idea in my opinion. The scale of dragons should be built up) That being said, I'm sure there are a lot of factors development wise I'm not taking into account, with what would be an extremely long running anthology tv show...if the locations and certain crew members have a shelf date that would need a turnover... Also-will you a Linda be making a video discussing this announcement or more about the topics in Fire and Blood?
  3. Well, consider this: if they don’t make an anthology show for Fire And Blood, then a lot of the material could never see light of day. They can’t have a regency era in a show focused solely on the Dance, and if they did end it on what note? Just as they couldn’t show Aegon’s later reign in a show solely about the Conquest. That’s a potential cash cow slaughtered. Whereas if they made the whole Targaryen canon as one show, they’ll have a huge flagship show they can keep going for like 20 years at least, building up in some areas like the first few seasons of Game Of Thrones to the more cost heavy events.
  4. The numerous articles make it sound like this will be a Fire And Blood anthology show starting with the conquest 300 years prior, not solely on the Dance.
  5. Exactly what I thought...maybe one day the "style" of the artwork can be inputed into an animated cgi model like the code Dreamworks uses.
  6. I was thinking more along the lines of animation the like of which hasn't been done before-something exactly like the artwork presented in the World of Ice and Fire. There is such character in this artwork that is entirely missing from the tv show because there are too many factors an on the ground production has to adhere to and compromise the integrity of the world building. And that would move more like a live action rather than the wily coyote and the road runner. Exactly like a portrait that produces a more faithful transcription than live action rather than a previously shown animated medium.
  7. I didn’t mean cartoons in general-Are Anime’s the ones with the huge eyes and weird faces?
  8. I’m along the same thought pattern on the limitations... Would be cool if they ever think to develop a movie and video game side by side so one could actually stand up to another and work together for a new storytelling experience. Theres a rumor Martin is working with the Dark Souls team on a game, never actually played one myself, but I would have to if it were ASOIAF.
  9. I would love it if they had used it, or another fantasy series, to break new ground in the art form. By implimanting gritty realistic imagery like paintings rather than CGI or whatever the hell style Disney and Dreamworks do. Manipulate it to get certain brand of effects one couldn’t accomplish in live action like some of the renditions of the battle of the trident, the water splashing a certain way....etc. Can you imagine the ravens teeth arrows coming down a bit like that 300 slow mo scene-I always though that looked out of place in live action, how they tried to mesh that cgi into the scenes.
  10. That’s the biggest problem, the only market is aimed at children. Morons in Hollywood won’t do a big budget animated skewed toward adults because it’s never been attempted before, but they’ll sure as hell waste money on a Fantastic Four reboot everyone seemed to figure out except them that it sounded like shit.
  11. I’m talking about like the type of photo realization of the portrait of Alysanne and Jahaerys from the worldbook. or this: https://qph.fs.quoracdn.net/main-qimg-27db41c5664dd028a5d79a946e1944b1-c I’m sure hell freezing would be likelier and the costs would be insane if done properly, but all the details they could get right that would be impossible for live action.
  12. Completely forgot about that-guess that’s one of the drawbacks of the wait between books.
  13. The dance killed almost every dragon, do you mean that the Maesters were the reason there wasn’t a resurgence of hatchlings afterward?
