More Game of thrones fans know this story: George R.R. Martin published A dance with dragons, the fifth book of his Chant of ice and fire series, back in 2011, the same year Game of thrones debuted on HBO. Soon, it became clear that the show would adapt all available source material before Martin could publish more. Martin has therefore met The Thrones animators David Benioff and Dan Weiss to tell them what he had in mind for the end. Preview of the next day 60 minutes special on Game of thronesMartin becomes more honest than ever about what they discussed at this meeting and the difference between the end of the show and the end of the books. Look below:
The big news is that, according to Martin, the ends will not differ much, at least not more than any other adaptation. "I do not think the end of Dan and Dave is going to be this different from my end because of the conversations we had, "he said. "But on some secondary characters, there can be big differences." And indeed, it seems that the conversations were quite thorough:
We are talking here about several days of history lectures taking place at my home in Santa Fe, New Mexico. But it is not possible to get all the details, all the minor characters, all the secondary characters. The series was extremely faithful compared to 97% of all adaptations of literary properties on television and film. But it's not completely faithful. And that can not be. Otherwise, he should run another five seasons.
Martin's prediction of people's reaction at the end is also very interesting:
There will be a debate, I'm sure. I think [there will be] many people who will say, "Oh, the end of Dan and Dave is better than George gave us. It's a good thing that they have changed. And many people will say, "No, Dan and Dave were wrong. The end of George is better. And they will all fight on the Internet and there will be a debate. And it's okay. You know, the worst thing for a work of art, be it a movie or a book, is to be ignored.
I do not think that end can be ignored. Bring the debate! I know you have it in you, internet.
As long as we talk about Martin, he announced on his side Not a blog that there is an illustrated edition of A shock of kings coming soon, with illustrations by Lauren K. Cannon. Discover the cover:
This follows the illustrated edition of A game of thrones. The new version of Shock was released on November 5, 2019.
Return to 60 minutes, a group of cast members did their best to avoid talking about the end under the questioning of Anderson Cooper, although a few gave some interesting impressions. Check it out:
Dan Weiss: "That's the big difference. Everyone wins. "No!
I enjoyed what John Bradley (Sam Tarly) had to say about Game of thrones & # 39; tradition of not giving audiences what they expect:
We have never given people what they thought they wanted, because we know that people really like to be challenged and that they do not like to be spooned, and all these great moments, those visceral moments of people's reaction to this show came from things that they did not want to happen.
Bring us home, Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister):
It ends brilliantly … It brings everyone in … it calls into question all that I love. It really makes you wonder, I think. I knew it when I read it. I would love to talk to you about it, but I can not. His really well.
Season 8 starts tomorrow at 8 pm on HBO!
