What if Game of Thrones were set in the modern day? A new online series is set to bring the medieval fantasy world into our day and age. Westeros will explore the politics and supernatural elements that help make the show the pop culture phenomenon that it is. And we have our first glimpse with a trailer.
In it we see that the Lannisters are still in power as Prime Minister Lannister addresses the nation. He promises that there’s nothing behind the wall but as we can see, the wights are definitely coming. Old monuments like the Titan of Braavos still stand but have been badly damaged over time, sharing space with wind power stations. The Starks are seen protesting and we can see that winter is coming once again.
Fan videos are always fun and this is a great take on the world. I don’t know how much I could watch of a series, even if it’s a short series. But clearly the ambition and inspiration is there. And they promise that the more things change, the more they stay the same. We’ll have to see when the series debuts.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think! Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more Game of Thrones fun. The finale season of Game of Thrones airs in 2019.
