How David Benioff and DB Weiss Wanted to Finish Game of Thrones. The final season of Game of Thrones will be somewhat shorter than the previous ones, with only six episodes, although of a longer duration than usual. However, the idea of the creators of the fiction of HBO to put an end to the history of Poniente was very different, since in principle they planned a trilogy of films.
David Benioff and DB Weiss knew that the end of the television adaptation of Song of Ice and Fire would be quite an event and, as the fiction became more and more popular, planned the end with a series of three films to be released in theaters, in the purest style The Lord of the Rings.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the producers planned a six-hour outcome, since they considered that it was the best way to obtain the time and budget necessary for the final deserved.
“It’s what we’re working on in a perfect world,” Weiss said. ” We ended up with an epic fantasy story but with the level of familiarity and investment in the characters that are normally impossible in a two-hour movie.”
But HBO did not agree with the idea, that it left out its subscribers. To satisfy the creators, the chain increased the production budget, from 5 to 15 million dollars per episode.
The uncontrollable success of the series served as a pretext for Benioff to try to convince HBO, ensuring that “the series was contained and it was about the characters”. “The worlds become so big, the battles become so massive,” he said, noting that although the fiction focuses on the cast, its far-reaching nature required a larger budget.
And although the showrunners failed to convince HBO executives, they are more than satisfied with the result. “We want to stop at a point where, both those who work on it and the spectators, we are left wanting a little more,” says Benioff. “There’s an old saying: ‘Always leave them wanting more.’ Besides, things go wrong when you do not want to do anything anymore, you do not want to bother him,” he added.
Even without an official release date, the eighth season of Game of Thrones will debut in 2019.
