GAME OF THRONES Prequel To Be Set Thousands Of Years Before Original Series; Jane Goldman On Board As Writer

Details on the first of HBO's Game of Thrones spinoffs have finally been revealed, and the prequel series will be set thousands of years before The Starks and Lannisters were at each other's throats...

HBO is moving ahead with a pilot episode for one of five potential Game of Thrones spinoffs, and intriguing details on what is set to be a prequel to the current show have now been revealed.

It seems the new series will take place back when White Walkers and the Children of the Forest still roamed freely in Westeros, as it's reportedly set thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones.

HBO has released a synopsis:


“Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros’s history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East, to the Starks of legend … it’s not the story we think we know.”

Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Secret Service, X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass) is teaming up with A Song of Ice and Fire author author George R.R. Martin to write and show-run the series, which doesn't currently have a title.

What do you guys make of this news? Are you glad it'll be set around the Age of Heroes, or would you have preferred to see a few familiar faces? Sound off below.
