The “Game of Throne” reboot is the first of a series of five shows, starting with “The Winds of Winter,” which begins Jan. 15.
Here’s everything you need know about it. 1.
How big is the new “Game”?
“The ‘Game’ is bigger than the original,” the show’s co-creator Bryan Cogman told Variety in January.
“I think it’s about twice as big.”
“The show has a lot of ambition,” he added.
“It’s a lot more complicated and there’s a whole lot more story to tell.”
Who is this new show’s lead?
Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) returns as a newly minted member of the House of Black and White.
She is joined by her daughter Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), her brother Bran (Nikolas Hoult), and her sister Sansa (Emilia Clarke).
The show is based on the novels by George R.R. Martin and takes place between “A Dance with Dragons” and “Theon Greyjoy” (which is based loosely on “A Clash of Kings”).
How did the writers decide who would play who?
The show’s writers “wanted someone who’s like a young kid who was in high school and has some ambition and has this sense of entitlement and has these big ideas,” said co-writer and showrunner Dan Weiss.
“So we wanted to give that character a little bit of a chance to grow, have some of these dreams come true.”
The producers and producers of “Game Of Thrones” have been working together for more than a year to develop the show.
The show will be directed by Nikolaj Caster-Wulf and written by Martin and Cogmans.
“Game” is the second show to be created in the “Gamebook” universe, which was created in 2014 and is based off “A Song of Ice and Fire” books by George RR Martin.
The “Book” novels are set in Westeros in the wake of the “Storm of Swords” in “A Feast for Crows” and feature the characters from the novels.
Will we get a spinoff?
“We’re in a place where there’s such an opportunity to do a spin-off show, if we want to,” Weiss said.
“We have the potential to do it with the series we have right now.
But we’re going to see what happens in the world, and then it’s up to us.”
“Game is so unique and it’s such a massive undertaking,” he continued.
“There are so many great writers and producers.
We just don’t have the resources to do the big shows.”
Will the new show be based on books or real life?
“You never know until you start,” Weiss admitted.
“That’s what I mean by this whole notion of ‘what if.’
We’ll see what comes of it.
We’ll know by then.”
“We’ve never been shy about telling stories that are grounded in history and that’s what we’re doing,” Cogmen said.
What will the show be about?
“It will be about Cersei and Jaime, and it will be all about the people who live in this world,” Weiss explained.
“The idea of that world being destroyed by a bunch of people who are super-powerful and that they’re fighting for power and power and the world is on the brink of destruction.
So it’s really about those characters and that world.”
“There’s a great arc of the story.
You get to see who is right, who is wrong, and you get to explore what happens when we fall into the trap of the wrong people, which is what happens with us, and we fall, and there is no way out.”
Will there be more “Game books”?
“In the world of the show, we are in a very, very different place than in the books,” Weiss continued.
Cersei has “great potential for power,” he said.
Jaime, meanwhile, is “very, very, strong, and very, young, and has great potential for ambition.”
“I know people say that, but you’ll see why this is such a big deal,” Weiss added.
Will it have an ending?
The finale of “The Book” series “has a very big impact on who the person who does the right thing in the end is,” Caster Wulf said.
But “it’s not necessarily who’s right.”
“It doesn’t say who is the right person to do what, but it does say that there are choices that have to be made,” he explained.
What about the new cast?
“There will be a new generation of people in this series,” Weiss stated.
“And they will be able to tell their own stories.
They’ll be able be who they are.”
The “Show” will have
