Non-prequel spin off[]

George R.R. Martin has suggested a show which he dubbed "Spear Carriers", a spin off that takes place during the events of Game of Thrones, but follows background characters instead of important people. Examples for main characters were: A member of the city watch of King's Landing, a prostitute at Littlefinger's brothel, a mummer, and they'd all get caught up in (and possibly influence) the major events.

Yeah that would be cool, but I don't think he included it in the "official" count. Besides, any good TV series should have..."Upstairs/Downstairs", "Upper Decks and Lower Decks" viewpoint characters. ASOIAF did somewhat with the Arya stuff with the Brotherhood Without Banners and so forth, though admittedly it skews towards the aristocrats.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 17:23, January 29, 2019 (UTC)

Animated adaptation of the books?[]

I'm all but certain one of the three animated pitches is not a prequel or spin-off, but an animated adaptation of the books aptly titled A Song of Ice and Fire. --Potsk (talk) 05:07, 30 July 2021 (UTC)

(sigh) a man can dream, a man can dream. But right now? Well of the three projects if one is Yi Ti, I'd be surprised if one of the other two isn't Summer Isles. I think the remaining one is like a super-sized version of the Histories & Lore motion comics, with high budget animation quality. You know, something like a one hour long high budget animation on "the reign of Jaehaerys I" which devotes significant time to the Great Council of 101 at the end, direct tie-in to House of the Dragon. You know it's strange...I was talking about this with Tony Teflon, who covers prequel news on his youtube channel (and who is black), but in his video about the Yi Ti animated project, he said he disagreed with me and didn't think one of the others was Summer Isles...on the grounds that HBO would never made one with a majority black cast. Keep in mind, this was right after Lovecraft Country's cancelation was announced so there were hurt feelings over that; well I like to think that isn't true.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 15:52, 30 July 2021 (UTC)

Successor shows[]

Should this page be retitled to "Game of Thrones successor shows" (or something to that effect) and cover the sequel series, or would an alternate page be created in the event of another sequel project? — Darth Dracarys (talk) 05:31, 23 June 2022 (UTC)

I'm tempted to call it the "Game of Thrones expanded universe" —Potsk signature (talk) 11:53, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
With GRRM's recent post grouping Snow along with the rest of the successor shows, I think it would probably be best for this article to cover both prequels and sequels. — Darth Dracarys (talk) 06:55, 24 June 2022 (UTC)
Agreed, let's get it done. - Xanderen signature 12:08, 24 June 2022 (UTC)

Ack, I've been off for a few days: I was going to come on here and answer that yes, citing Martin's specific post about the Jon Snow project etc., "prequel projects" no longer fits well, and Martin himself doesn't like "spin offs", and he generally refers to them himself as "successor shows" - so that's the one we should use. But you beat me to it :) ---- It is agreed, then.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 23:19, 26 June 2022 (UTC)

Renaming[]

Perhaps we should discuss eventually renaming the wiki to "worldofwesteros" with "gameofthrones" as a redirect. If another show other than House of the Dragon is greenlit. It'd be awkward to have the logo read "Game of Thrones & House of the Dragon & The Hedge Knight Wiki" —Potsk signature (talk) 12:54, 7 September 2022 (UTC)

For sure, this is definitely something that's been on my mind. "worldofwesteros" already redirects here. Hopefully once another series is greenlit, they'll use the term "World of Westeros" more frequently. — Darth Dracarys (talk) 13:06, 7 September 2022 (UTC)

Merge[]

How would people feel about combining this page with Game of Thrones successor projects? The other page is pretty much a history of the franchise's development over the past five years, so I think we could place the media list at the top of that article, rename it to "World of Westeros", and have the extensive details below. Thoughts? — Darth Dracarys (talk) 02:05, 11 September 2022 (UTC)

Yeah, go ahead —Potsk signature (talk) 11:06, 11 September 2022 (UTC)

Better sources needed[]

Far better sources are needed to confirm that the overall franchise is actually called the World of Westeros. One of the links used in the lead no longer works and the other does not prove that this is the overall franchise name - it seems to reference a promotional headline on the HBO shop? Is there a source that explicitly proclaims HotD or the Dunk & Egg show as installments in the "World of Westeros" franchise and not just as spin-offs/prequels of Game of Thrones?

Arguably, Game of Thrones remains the name of the overall franchise (it is also used as such colloquially) - see how HotD is marketed as Game of Thrones: House of the Dragon, not World of Westeros: House of the Dragon. Wodikowski (talk) 12:24, 21 April 2024 (UTC)
