George RR Martin said he did not even look at the script of the last season of the Game of Thrones series because he is busy writing a new book.
To all fans of "Game of Thrones," it is known that the series has long been different from the books of George RR. Martin, who recently gave an interview to Entertainment Weekly in which he said he had not read the script for the last eight season, nor had time to come on the movie set as he was busy writing the book Winds of Winter.
He stated that at the beginning he had not dreamed that the series would overtake him one day, but that long ago happened and he could no longer escape from it.
What we will see at the end of the eighth season could be different from the end in the books, provided Martin really finished the books. HBO producers have also confirmed that parts will differ from the book, but they do not want viewers to tell them what their end will be different from Martin's end, but will leave it to readers and fans to reveal it themselves.
Games Workshop is making an animated series based on the popular Warhammer 40,000 franchise, the company announced Monday. Called Angels of Death, it is the first officially licensed series of its kind. Helming the project is the team behind the popular Helsreachseries of fan-made cartoons and a live-action film released in October.
“We’re bringing the grim darkness of the far future to life like never before,” Games Workshop wrote on its official community blog. “Get ready for epic battle, heroic sacrifice, loads of explosions, brutal close-combat chainsword duels, and some pathos-laden dialogue that’ll fill your belly with fire and stretch your heart strings to breaking.”
Angels of Death will follow a group of red-armored Blood Angels Space Marines. The script will be penned by one of the many authors who contribute to Games Workshop’s Black Library series of genre fiction books.
Also involved is Richard Boylan, a cinematic designer at Electronic Arts and the man behind the live-action short film Guardsman, which has more than 1.3 million views on YouTube.
Fans of 40K will also know his work from Helsreach, a long-running animated series based on the Black Library novel of the same name.
“I’m pretty limited in what I can say, other than myself and Boman Modine, the producer/writer of Guardsman were approached to create an animated series,” Boylan told Polygon via email. “It’s basically going to be like my Helsreach series only with full Games Workshop support and an actual budget, which is awesome on their part!”
The series is expected to be available on the popular Warhammer TV channel on YouTube in 2019.
According to Plepler, the Game of Thrones showrunners, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, have outdone themselves with the six feature-length episodes.
"They knew the bar was high. They’ve exceeded the bar," Plepler said, adding that he was "in awe" after having seen each of the episodes twice.
Plepler added that "Everybody’s in for an extraordinary treat of storytelling and of magical, magical production."
In a trailer for its upcoming season, HBO shared a first look at Game of Thrones Season 8: a clip from a snowy Winterfell showing Jon Snow introducing Daenerys Targaryen to a visibly strained Sansa Stark. Exciting!
Can we skip the four agonising months of teasing and just go straight to the premiere, please?
Great news! It's 2019, and that means it's officially the year when Game of Thrones is returning to our lives.
It also means that for the next four months, the hype is just going to build and build and build until the premiere of the final season of the show in April.
The CEO of HBO himself just shed some light on what we can expect from the final series.
Speaking to Variety, HBO's CEO Richard Plepler described his experience of watching the six episodes as a "spectacle."
Per Variety, Plepler had only seen rough cuts of the episodes, but was blown away nonetheless.
"The guys have done six movies," Plepler said. "The reaction I had while watching them was, I’m watching a movie."
