Yes and yes lol
With asoiaf specifically the amount t of detail in the book just can not even be touched with what the show did season 2 and forward...
I think that applies to all adaptations of literature except maybe the hobbit. Peter Jackson stretched out that short book into 3 average movies.

I think George has most of the creative control or at least is overseeing the new show. Not really interested in a targaryen show. We need a break from their stupid "madness" and incest stuff. Would at least like to see other families from Valyria.
But we only really know about 2 other families from their and they're pretty much irrelevant.
I'm assuming a lot havent read the newest book. But it's really good. So I have high Hope's for this new show

Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss have abandoned plans to work on a trilogy of Star Wars movies. “There are only so many hours in the day, and we felt we could not do justice to both Star Wars and our Netflix projects,” the pair tell Deadline. “So we are regretfully stepping away.”

Sounds more like they were asked to step away, or were just too shook after all the GOT fans almost killed them, and Star Wars fans would have finished the job LOL. I mean who would just walk away from that Disney money, with they're only reason being "sorry too busy". Even if they knew they weren't up to task, and would have put out some trash. Happy this happened they would have tarnished the Star Wars franchise, and they didnt deserve the job anyway. They've proven their creativity is not up to par in writing. They just need to go back to adadapting other peoples work, they weren't too bad at that. Good day for Star Wars fans.

It fits.

Netflix has A ton of trash to mediocre shows and movies. That's what they'll get to make there.

They lying though. The Netflix bag was already secured. There was no deadline on when they had to have their first project out by. Their SW movie was suppose to come out in 2022. Thats the bag you focus on. W/e Netflix show or movie they wanted to make could've been developed in 2019, 2020, and then again in 2022.

Either Disney asked D&D to step away or they’re too shook to take on Star Wars after ****ing up GOT. You don’t quit on the most popular movie franchise in history in favor of random content for Netflix just because “there are only so many hours in a day.” Nah, not buying that.

The live actions
The disney princess.
Not being able to hold down spidey
The mcu netflix shows
They not wanting anymore fan smoke. And I'd assume over 75% of star fans were invested in GOT as well (excluding the kids)

What does this mean?

Last I checked the backlash was solely on netflix for that.

Besides now all of Marvel tv is in-house under Feige's purview. Its not like most of those Netflix characters are gone for good.
If that daredevil rumor is true good
But I'm sure people still wanted Luke cage
Maybe even colleen wang series
Light backlash but backlash nonetheless

All the race stuff with the disney princess

Again when we say backlash. We not saying they losing money. But they've caught internet smoke for awhile (which means pretty much nothing)
Just like if d&d are there it means nothing really they'll still make that money regardless

If they scared they'll make worse movies than sw ep 7 and 8 then they're more trash than we thought. Those movies were absolute crap.

Not sure on the order number of the Star Wars movies, but the first one with the black dude as the hero, Flynn, was his name I think was pretty good.

Didn't really matter since they were barely connected to the MCU.

There was no Colleen Wing series coming :lol: At best she'd be featured more as the new Iron Fist.

And again none of that backlash fell on Disney. Especially after details were revealed.

It wasn't bad, but borrowing heavy from episode 4 a new hope was so damn lazy. A big disappointment.

Yeah, Disney is so big and pervasive that they get some negative reaction to almost everything they do from some segment of the population. Like I think I recall reading that fundamentalist Christian groups were calling Frozen gay propaganda because Elsa didn’t have a male love interest :lol::smh:

I don’t think they worry about Internet criticism unless they think what’s behind it is really going to impact revenue/profitability.

HBO just nixed the prequel starring Naomi Watts. They will go forward with the reworked Targaryen based prequel instead.

According to sources, HBO execs screened the pilot over the summer and were not thrilled with the results. Instead of passing, however, they sent Goldman and Co. back into the editing room to make a slew of changes. But the revamped pilot failed to impress the execs either, leading them to pull the plug altogether.
Meanwhile, HBO is expected to move forward with another Game of Thrones prequel project, this one that would trace the glory days of House Targaryen. The project has earned an official pilot order at HBO. The spinoff is co-created by GoT book author George R.R. Martin and Colony creator Ryan J. Condal, and is set 300 years before the original Thrones series, chronicling “the beginning of the end for House Targaryen.” Martin’s companion book Fire & Blood serves as a template for the new series.

The new project is actually a reworking of the rejected spinoff concept from Game of Thrones writer Bryan Cogman, which officially got the axe back in April. (Cogman is now serving as a consultant on Amazon’s upcoming Lord of the Rings adaptation.)
