HBO has yet to reveal any official details for their Game of Thrones prequel series, but a lot are hoping that we\u2019ll get some new info come SDCC 2019 later this month. What\u2019s interesting is, series creator George R.R. Martin has shared some new details for the upcoming spinoff.\r\n\r\nTalking to Entertainment Weekly, Martin pretty much confirms that the series takes place way in the past, and Westeros is still split up into a hundred kingdoms. Despite that though, we\u2019re still going to see an appearance from the MVP house of the original show, House Stark.\r\n\r\nMartin says, the Starks will definitely be a presence, and it\u2019s likely we could see the construction of Bran the Builder\u2019s magical Wall. Martin also confirms, \u201cObviously the White Walkers are here \u2014 or as they\u2019re called in my books, The Others \u2014 and that will be an aspect of it\u2026 There are things like direwolves and mammoths.\u201d\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/youtu.be\/76X_Eioiiwc\r\n\r\nBesides the Starks, we\u2019ll also be going to a familiar place called Casterly Rock, but instead of the Lannisters, the castle is still being run by the original family, the Casterlys. Martin says, \u201cThe Lannisters aren\u2019t there yet, but Casterly Rock is certainly there; it\u2019s like the Rock of Gibraltar\u2026 It\u2019s actually occupied by the Casterlys \u2014 for whom it\u2019s still named after in the time of Game of Thrones.\u201d\r\n\r\nIn the lore it\u2019s said that the Lannisters had descended from a trickster called Lann the Clever, but there are different versions of the story on how he earned the castle. Hopefully with this prequel, we get the true story.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/youtu.be\/UTithmKwJ7o\r\n\r\nWith a lot of people disappointed with how Game of Thrones turned out, I\u2019m starting to be hopeful that this spinoff will focus more on the more human conflicts that made the show as great as it was. I don\u2019t any of the over-the-top CGI to get hooked. I\u2019d trade a hundred Battle of Winterfells for a handful of scenes of Tywin Lannister scolding people.\r\n\r\nNo release date has been set for the Game of Thrones spinoff, but hopefully we can get in next year or in 2021.
