    I don’t have a problem with many of D&D’s stylistic choices, so I imagine the show will look good. I did have a problem with their interpretation of female characters from GRRM’s text.  I’m hoping they don’t bring over the latent misogyny from GoT.

    FYC:

    Best Director - Lee Isaac Chung (Minari), Darius Marder (Sound of Metal)

    Lead Actor - Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods), Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round), Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal)

    Supporting Actor - Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

    Supporting Actress - Youn Yuh-jung (Minari)

    Alexander Woo (The Terror: Infamy) will also be one of the showrunners together with Benioff and Weiss. Rian Johnson will also be executive producer.

    Thought the same thing. They’re good at adapting so long as they have the material, so this should avoid the issues of their previous show.

    Sure this one has a finished ending, but how much faith do we have in D&D for interpreting such a distinctively Chinese story? It takes a considerable amount of knowledge and understanding in Chinese history and culture to even read these books, let alone adapt them. Nothing D&D have done has demonstrated such strengths.

    Agree, GoT was excellent until they had to write the story themselves and messed it up. I hope this is good.

    I have not seen any reports about who is show-running.

    It says the author and the translator will be consulters but of course we can’t know how the end result will be.

    So far, only producing.

    Also, “inspired by” as opposed to “adapted from” is not a good sign.
