Many of the fans and followers of Game of Thrones were not very happy with the end of the series, as they felt rushed and incoherent. Perhaps the reason for this “failure” is because the initial plan was totally different. As revealed by George R.R. Martin, I wanted to end the series with a trilogy in the cinema.

The creator of the books on which Game of Thrones is based, revealed in an interview for the German newspaper Welt that approximately four years ago he had conversations with co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss to finalize the plan to end the history of Westeros with three feature films intended to be screened in theaters.

In this way, George R.R. Martin explained on Reddit why it finally didn’t happen: “Because HBO didn’t want that. Those responsible said: “We produce television series, we are not in the film business.” And if HBO makes a movie, like the movie based on ‘Deadwood’, they only produce it to broadcast on television, not on the big screen, ”commented the creator of Game of Thrones. “Everything is changing right now. What is cinema today? What is the television? What is streaming? Is Netflix making movies or television now? Everything is mixed, ”he concluded.
