“Game Of Thrones” may have ended over a month ago but that doesn’t mean the show’s biggest fans have got over the way things ended.
Petitions were started to remake the final season and to stop David Benioff and D.B. Weiss from writing and directing the upcoming “Star Wars” film.
Fans have been so disgruntled that they have caused the two to top Google’s search results for “bad writers” until articles started forming about the Reddit thread behind this.
A May Reddit post titled, “Bad writers. Upvote this post so its the first result when you google ‘Bad writers'” was aimed at the two and clearly had its desired effect.
A petition started around the same time ended up gaining over 1.5 million signatures.
“David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on,” the petition read. “This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”
And while the petitions have gained lots of attention, that is all they have done.
The two writers haven’t commented on a remake but stars of “GoT” have made their thoughts clear. “All of these petitions and things like that — I think it’s disrespectful to the crew, and the writers, and the filmmakers who have worked tirelessly over 10 years, and for 11 months shooting the last season,” Sophie Turner who played Sansa Stark told The New York Times. “Like 50-something night shoots. So many people worked so, so hard on it, and for people to just rubbish it because it’s not what they want to see is just disrespectful.”
Walt Disney chairman, Bob Iger, also confirmed that Weiss and Benioff would still behind the “Star Wars” movie to be released on December 16, 2022. The next film in the series, “The Rise of Skywalker”, comes from J.J Abrams and will hit theatres this December.
So at least “Game Of Thrones” fans have plenty of time to heal their wounds.
