It was the hottest ticket this year in San Diego, USA, Comic-Con. Literally
The producers of Thrones gameDavid Benioff and Dan Weiss were closed in an auditorium at the convention center with 6,500 of the most rabid fans of the series, after the incendiary criticisms of the controversial season of the show.
Unfortunately, it will never happen.
The organizers of Comic-Con have confirmed that Benioff and Weiss, as well as the director / co-producer Miguel Sapochnik, will not appear as scheduled at the largest film, television and comedy convention in the world.
* The game of the thrones changed when the fans attacked last season
* The GOT star says that the "traumatic" trauma scene of Cersei was reduced
* Lena Headey of "Game of Thrones" wanted a better death for Cersei
* Game of Thrones: at the set of the final chapter of the biggest TV show
The trio, and the members of the cast of the series, had been scheduled to make a final appearance at Comic-Con, a lap of victory, to close the episode of the story of the program's decade.
On the other hand, fans will get a slightly shorter training: actors Jacob Anderson (Gray Worm), John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth), Conleth Hill (Varys) Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), and Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark).
He Thrones game The panel will continue in the largest hall of the Comic-Con, Hall H.
In many respects, the cancellation of the two producers of the series is not surprising; The final episodes of the series were widely criticized online, and a request from followers who asked HBO to refer the final season to "competent writers" has removed 1.68 million signatures.
In the fans' forums, some fans had invited the couple to be punished on the board by sounding the "shame bell" during the panel.
The "bell of shame" appeared famous in an episode of the series in which Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) was forced to do "a walk of shame" while Septa Unella (Hannah Waddingham) sounded and repeatedly called " shame ".
In the canon of the show, this ritual is a penance to the "Faith of the Seven", which demands a confused sneeze walker stripped of clothes and offended by observers; In the series, Cersei was subjected to the "shame bell" after admitting adultery and incest with his cousin Ser Lancel Lannister.
In fact, perhaps HBO saw signals at a Nashville, Tennessee fanatical convention last weekend, when actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who played Jaime Lannister, had to ask fans questions .
"This happens every season," said Coster-Waldau. "We are lucky enough to be part of a show in which people worry so much about this fact that they also get upset when it does not work as you wish.
"That's great and I love it and I like that there was an online request to rewrite it," said Coster-Waldau.
Coster-Waldau defended the end of the series, explaining to the Nashville auditorium "everybody of the Game of Thrones, and there are thousands, we have worked with our offspring to make the best show we can for the end."
The moment of the appearance of the convention is perhaps the only aspect that has a creative and commercial sense; it will arrive a few days later Thrones game He was nominated for 32 awards.
The media coverage of the Comic-Con panel will position the show and some of its leading figures during the voting window of the awards.
Thrones game He has already won 128 nominations and 47 wins at Emmy.
Meanwhile, Benioff and Weiss are working on a new program War of the galaxies trilogy for the property of Disney, Lucasfilm.
In what could only be described as a slightly better news, the online request to remove them from this project – fed by postThrones game Wrath – has attracted a substantially smaller number of signatures: only 33,949 people have signed.
The four-day Comic-Con international convention is held annually in San Diego, California, and approximately 130,000 people are pushing through their tourniquets.
