Game Of Thrones Prequel Is Not The Story You Think You Know
The project, still untitled, is set long before the dreaded long winter, which is at the center of the final season of the current TV series. The prequel will take place thousands of years before the reign of King Robert and Daenerys’ quest to take back the iron throne. It will begin during the Age of Heroes and the start of the Long Night, which viewers may recall have been mentioned a few times in the previous seasons of Game of Thrones.
According to its official logline, the Game of Thrones prequel “chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.” The synopsis promises an exciting TV series filled with unexpected twist and turns, plus what GOT fans know about the Thrones lore may not be the “story we think we know.”
