Before Game of Thrones ended, HBO authorized the production of Boodmoon, a series that would be the first official prequel to the series inspired by the work of George RR Martin.
The Hollywood Reporter shared a report on what was contemplated in the series, which with an episode finished, was rejected by the television network
Where would Bloodmoon take place?
Being a Game of Thrones prequel, Bloodmoon was set in Westeros 8,000 years before the events of A Song of Ice and Fire, when the Age of Heroes takes place, which would have expanded George RR Marton’s story.
What was the plot of Bloodmoon?
The story of Bloodmoon would take place in the long night, before the battle for dawn occurred, which would give no clues to the origin of the white walkers, who kept the land in a winter that seemed eternal, where a house from the north and one from the south would join in marriage.
Naomi Watts, the protagonist of Bloodmoon
For this series, actress Naomi Watts headed the cast that was complemented by Jamie Campbell Bower, Josh Whitehouse, Georgie Henley. Naomi Ackie and two-time Oscar nominee Miranda Richardson were among the last actors chosen.
Which characters would appear in BloodMoon?
Those responsible for carrying the narrative threads would be Lann the intelligent, who is the founder of the Lannister house, while Bran the builder, who became the first King in the North and who is the ancestor of the Stark house.
Why did HBO turn down Bloodmoon?
Despite the fact that the series had a pilot episode, Bloodmoon did not reach the HBO signal, something that surprised locals and strangers. According to Casey Bloys, director of content for HBO, this series needed “more than just invention.”
While Robert Greenblatt, president of WarnerMedia, noted that the pilot lacked the depth of Game of Thrones, though Warner Bros. executives were unconvinced after the end of Game of Thrones that it left mixed feelings at the company.
