Instead of Thrones on Television

& # 39 'His Dark Materials', 'Lord Of The Rings': There is a huge list of new fantasy shows coming on TV.

RIP Game Thrones 17 April 2011 – 19 May 2019.

The crystal culture phenomenon is now in the crystal.

Apart from the last two books George R. R. Martin is due to us, the prequel series being developed and a group of maniac fans who wish to repeat the final season; we have left the Seven Norths now.

So what is the hell we will now go to death?

From then on Game Thrones All television and film studio networks began looking for the next fantasy epic. When Amazon's head, Jeff Bezos, claimed that his television people give him the next big thing for him in Martin's spirit of creation.

The rights to books were bought, screenwriters have drafted ideas, and everyone spoke to a big game about delivering the next big thing but not yet a successor.

There are major themed projects that could be your next fears and we have broken down. The next pop culture phenomenon remains.


The Witcher

The upcoming television series is based on a series of fantasy books with Andrzej Sapkowski which were adapted in advance into film, video games, graphic novels, card / table games and television series. The biggest difference between this adjustment and the previous amount is Netflix.

Maybe you know The Witcher best from the common video games, but the Netflix series closer to the novels as inspiration.

Sapkowski's books focus on The Continent, a world where people have criticized indigenous spiders, elves and gnomes. The kingdom is divided between the north and the south, in a war at all times, and it Witchers ’are superb characters who are charged with the hunt of fiery creatures.

Henry Cavill is in charge of the show as a monster hunter, Geralt of Rivia and the plot focuses on his contact with a powerful sorceress, a princess and a dangerous secret. The series is being developed by Lauren Hissrich whose credits are included The Umbrella Academy, Daredevil, Parent and West Wing.

The Witcher it is said to be released in late 2019.


A Dark Materials

I The Golden Compass, a white bear in armor hits the plane out of another polar bear in a fight for the ice throne; we don't talk about this enough.

The blockbuster, with Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig, was intended to launch a star of a film series based on Pullman's book series. A Dark Materials. The series is set in a world where people souls are like animals that move a shape called ons Daemons' and starts with Lyra Belacqua in search of her missing friend.

The wearing of white bear was not enough to save it The Golden Compass and the film trilogy was canceled after the bad box office. But like most of the popular film adaptations, there is always room for a second shot on television.

The BBC and HBO have met A Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman. This is a great draw with Dafne Keen (the little girl out of it) Logan) James McAvoy (Spit), Ruth Wilson (Luther) and Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton, Mary Poppins Returns(f) filling the main roles. Tom Hooper (King's Speech, Les Miserable) on board to be directed and Jack Thorne (Skins, Not shame, Harry Potter and the Cursed Baby) on scripting duties.

The complex plot from the books was added to the film adaptation to give the television a breathing room and they seem to adapt the three books (as the title suggests). There are already positive signs with the series getting the second season before the first one is broadcast.

A Dark Materials by Philip Pullman he has not yet had a release date but is “very fast coming” as close to the end of the year Game Thrones it suggests that it will come in mid-2019.


Children of Blood and Bone

In 2017, a tendering rights for publishing rights and films for Tomi Adeyemi's first novel came to an end Children of Blood and Bone. The deal was successful, more than seven figures, the book secured, plus two sequences and the film adaptation set up before the novel even hit shelves!

Luckily, the fantasy book about an inspired kingdom of Africa (think of Wakanda into Black Pantherhe was a New York Times subscriber, he received positive reviews and was so big that Adeyemi appeared. The Show Tonight with Jimmy Fallon.

The book is located in the land of Orïsha where once there was magic, but a ruthless king drew genocide on magical tribes and took away their abilities. The tribes are a subclass without power at the beginning of the book, but a young hero chases when she discovers that there may be a way of bringing magic back.

Orïsha is an realized fantasy kingdom and a good thing Avatar: The Last Airbender It meets the political surprise Game Thrones.

The director behind Dope, Rick Famuyiwa turns Children of Blood and Bone into a film and in the sequence of the book, Children of virtue and determination, which is set for Christmas 2019 release.

Now is the time to board with him Children of Blood and Bone because this could be huge and the film is expected to be in 2020/21.


The Time Wheel / Lord of the rings Prequel

When Amazon is looking for the next big thing in fantasy they went after two of the main book series first: The Time Wheel and Lord of the rings.

Both will be adapted as a TV series for Amazon and they don't earn around – d Bezos paid $ 200 million just for the rights of LOTR before firing a single frame.

The Time Wheel It is based on the author's fantasy series Robert Joran (real name: James Oliver Rigney Jr.) who goes over 14 novels. The series is set in a world of magic but can only be used by women. The plot focuses on Moiraine, a member of a female organization called es Aes Sedai 'as she goes on a treacherous trip with five young men and women.

Moiraine has doubts that one of them can be a rebuttal of a powerful truth that is prophesied to save or destroy mankind. With many novels to adapt this series there are many rich materials to work with and fans have been very excited for many years.

On the start of LOTR, we know that Amazon will make a prequel TV series that will trace the rise of the bad boy Sauron who is at Middle Earth. The show will be arranged during the Second Century, when Sauron did his work to handle all royal families, create power rings and build an army.

Already, it will be one of the most expensive TV shows ever made with a budget in billions and Amazon is locked for five seasons.

We're playing the long game here and so expect the two exhibitions to be around 2020/21.


Avatar the Last Airbender

There was once a show with a friend with a DVD box set of the Nickelodeon animation series, Avatar the Last Airbender, with a claim to view it or otherwise.

People love this series – or else – located in a world where society is divided into four nations: fire, water, air and land. In every nation there are nders' airí who can control all elements through the use of martial arts. There is only one person, The Avatar, who can control all four elements simultaneously; they are a large type and are restored when they die.

The cartoon series takes 100 years after The Avatar has gone, and in that period peace between the nations is broken and The Fire Nation is the upper ruler, fire balls everywhere. See, my friend was right, the show is awesome, and it makes kung-fu blended with fantasy elements.

Night Night Shyamalan made a catastrophic catastrophe in 2010 which was a disaster Avatar the Last Airbender getting second shot thanks to Netflix.

We don't know enough about what they plan, but the potential is huge and the big mistake is trying to load this series into one movie already made. Thinking about the martial arts aspect, this could be very visual, think Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon He meets together Captain Planet.

This one is distant, not even a single casting notice yet, so it could be 2021 years the Airbender.


Black Leopard Red Wolf

From his success Creed and Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan has become a major player in Hollywood.

Jordan founded a production company, Outlier Society, and signed an excellent collaboration with Warner Brothers. Dealing in the first place means that Warner Brothers gets the first dibs on anything that is developing. Jordan's project is Marlon James ’Brief History of Seven Killings) a fantasy novel Black Leopard, Wolf Wolf.

Shortly after the book was released, Jordan bought the rights to adapt films and he is undoubtedly planning to come into it.

The book is inspired by African mythology and is set in a world where it is entrusted to a soldier with a sour scent and leopard at a human shape transfer to find his identity will affect the balance of power in the kingdom.

James's book includes creatures of supernatural creatures, political power plays, brutal violence and many sword swings action. James ’ Black Leopard, Wolf Wolf It is part of Star Star's Trilogy Star that is planned so that there are more to come.

The ink is still drying on the deal, so this adaptation could come together, but capture the book as soon as you can.


The Kingkiller Chronicle

Okay, if you want to do more singing in your fantasy, don't look beyond The Kingkiller Chronicle.

The series tells the story of Patrick Rothfuss, the story of an adventurer and a musician in medieval life. There are two books, Name of the Wind and Fear of Son of regret, and a third novel planned – but George R. R. Martin has made it to Rothfuss and failed to deliver it.

The usual fantasy of the Kingkiller Chronicle (there are dragons), but instead of the main character looking over his skills with a sword, is ugly. The Rothfuss approach to the maze is using brand new music and is a series that values ​​its main brain characters.

The TV series is being developed by Lin-Manuel Miranda, so they seem to be making a lot of effort to balance the fantasy and musical aspects of the book. The only catch is there is not much word going on when we will see it as the track on its development has gone cold.

There is a good chance that the series is canned but if life is still there I would like to see some lucky steps.


Rivers of London

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are trying to produce their work and bought the rights of an urban fantasy series Ben Aaronovitch, Rivers of London.

The series, called the Peter Grant series, focuses on an ordinary police constable who is recruited by a small branch of the force who deals with magic and supernatural.

There are nine books in the series so Pegg and Frost have enough to adapt, which could keep the show for several seasons. Aaronovitch will be heavily involved in the production of the show so that fans can be confident that this will be a faithful adaptation.


Discoveries on Cities

The attention may be given by a teenage witch, but Discoveries on Cities, based on Deborah Harkness's trilogy All Souls, the witch show that you must be over.

The plot follows Diana Bishop (Teresa Palmer), an historian who finds a true manuscript and is an integral part of a supernatural world. There are vampires (watch out for Matthew Goode), good witches, bad witches and even a witch that is not just one in a box.

Discoveries on Cities it is a more gripping approach in the life of the witch and there is no spare cost. Done in Europe, all the centers are wonderful, the effects are special on top and the eye play; it's like Outlander with less bare and more literal knee. The show has fallen slightly under the radar but received a modest audience and was already given a second and third season – the biggest vote of confidence.

Watch out Discoveries on Cities on Foxtel in Australia.


The eyes of the dragon

I went to prison if I didn't mention Stephen King The eyes of the dragon, which is to be a television series by Hulu.

The book is located in a medieval kingdom called Delain field and is centered on the royal family. A young prince is supposed to poison his father and his own king, and tries to clear his name.

The mocking of the story is Randell Flagg, a name he knows of the King's fans as he is a slave who appears The Stand and The Dark Tower. Throw it on the pile of King adaptations.
