A 'Game Of Thrones' Prequel Is Happening & Here's Everything You Need To Know About It
‘Game Of Thrones’ might be moving towards its much-awaited finale but that doesn’t mean the show’s impending hangover won’t have a cure for us. Talks of about four prequels for the iconic TV show were floating about for a while, and now it seems like all the rumours have been put to rest with a definite confirmation.
The shortlisted storyline is based during the Age of The Heroes. As per reports, the story is “taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones. The series chronicles the world’s descent from the Golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: From the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the White Walkers, the mysteries of the East, to the Starks of legend — it’s not the story we think we know”. If you’re wondering about when the show will be aired, then that might come as a bummer to you, because it won’t air until at least a year after the finale next year.
So, basically, the prequel will deal with the history of Westeros, the introduction of the Long Night and how the White Walkers came into existence. Of course, we won’t see any of our favourite characters since it is set before they were born, obviously. But we’ll get to see how the reigning families started gaining power and proceeded to conquer everyone. This one is going to be a GOT history lover’s visual delight.
