Highly anticipated animated series

But hold on, that’s not all! Several animated series are also in the pipeline. To know The Golden Empire of Yi Ti, a story centered on the territory of the Far East, east of Essos. The opportunity to discover more about the world of Game Of Thrones and on this mystical region, very little discussed in the parent series.

So, can't wait to discover all this?

Game of Thrones: several projects finally canceled

Unfortunately (or fortunately), several projects have been canceled. Notably Flea Bottom, a series focusing on this little-known eponymous district in King's Landing, the capital of Westeros. If the show could have allowed us to discover more about this city and its inhabitants, the series did not go beyond the concept stage. Before finally being canceled for good by HBO in 2021. Damage !

And one of the most anticipated spin-offs which will ultimately never see the light of day: “Bloodmoon” Or “The Long Night.” In fact, no name had been officially given to him. It was a series project commissioned by the channel, taking place thousands of years before the events of Game Of Thrones. It was to tell the true origins of the White Walkers and thus reveal one of the greatest secrets of Westeros. A prequel whose first pilot episode had even been filmed! Unfortunately, HBO ultimately canceled the project in 2019, without any reason. Sadness.

The announcement came as a bit of a Bantha twist or how the said film is already in the works. A surprise when we know that another very popular series, Peaky Blinders in this case, difficulty in concluding his story in the cinema. But impossible is not Star Wars. Even if, at the start, it was above all a question of a season 4 of The Mandalorian.

However, on the side of Disney, and the production of the show, it seems clear that the series must also continue as such.

The Mandalorian : the idea for a film because of the Hollywood strikes

According to THR, the Hollywood strikes, which raged during 2023, pushed Lucasfilm to think about a film to compensate for the blockage in the writing of series during this period of social unrest.

Only one thing is certain: the spin-off film is officially in the works and should normally enter production current 2024. The ways of the Force are impenetrable. Just like those in the Hollywood industry. Perhaps even more so in these troubled times for American entertainment.
