AOC Also Has Opinions About The Subpar GoT Finale But This POC Prequel Should Get Her — And Everyone Else — Excited
We know you’re disappointed. We all are! The “Game of Thrones” season finale left much to be desired and even more to be angry about.
Even Alexandria Ocasio Cortez was bummed about the ending.
In an interview with Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, Ocasio-Cortez expressed her deep disappointment in the series saying “I’m sad. I’m disappointed about it… “I feel like we were getting so close to having this ending with just women running the world.”
A “Game of Thrones” Prequel is underway, and we’re so excited!
HBO has announced that a new series based on “Game of Thrones” will be released. Here’s a little backstory about what it’s about: “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. 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, only one thing is for sure: It’s not the story we think we know.” Sounds very intriguing.
GoT author George R.R. Martin is very much involved in the show, and that’s a good thing.
While we may have been pissed at his idea of a finale, we still love the show and wouldn’t want anyone else creating this new series. While the show takes places in Westeros, it won’t look like the place we have come to know.
“Westeros is a very different place. There’s no King’s Landing. There’s no Iron Throne. There are no Targaryens — Valyria has hardly begun to rise yet with its dragons and the great empire that it built,” Martin told Entertainment Weekly last year. “We’re dealing with a different and older world, and hopefully that will be part of the fun of the series.”
The show will also be way more diverse than “Game of Thrones.”
As you may recall, “Game of Thrones” featured very little diversity, including two main people of color, that will all change with this new cast.
Some of those actors include Marquis Rodriquez, Naomi Ackie, Sheila Atim, and Ivanno Jeremiah. The main stars will be Miranda Richardson and Naomi Watts.
We can’t wait!
