‘Game Of Thrones’ Prequel TV Series ‘Ten Thousand Ships’ Is In The Works According To George R.R. Martin

George R.R. Martin, the mastermind behind all things Westeros, has some juicy news that’ll make you say, “Winter is coming… back?” Yep, you heard it right. The Game of Thrones prequel that we all thought was sleeping with the fishes is back on deck, and it’s got more ships than a Viking parade!

The prequel, dramatically titled *Ten Thousand Ships*, had previously sunk faster than a Lannister fleet. But in true Westerosi fashion, it has risen from the ashes (or maybe from the depths of the Narrow Sea). This time, it’s under the skillful pen of Eboni Booth, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright who’s got more talent than Tyrion has witty comebacks.

Martin himself spilled the beans on his blog, and let’s just say he’s as excited as a Stark in a snowstorm. “Eboni’s a genius,” he gushed, “When she’s not dazzling Broadway with her plays, she’s been wrangling dragons and ships for HBO. And trust me, getting her on board was easier than convincing a Dothraki to ride a bicycle.”

So, what’s the hullabaloo about? Picture this: 1,000 years before Jon Snow knew nothing, a fierce warrior queen named Princess Nymeria is leading her people on the ultimate road trip – or should we say sea trip? They’re escaping the Valyrians and their fire-breathing pets, crossing the waters like Moses with better hair, aiming to find a new home in Dorne. Sounds like a mix of *The Odyssey* and *Sinbad*, but with fewer cyclops and more giant turtles (we’ll get to that).

The plot, according to the wise scribes at THR, follows Nymeria and the Rhoynar as they flee from the dragon-lovin’ Valyrians. Think of it as a medieval game of hide and seek, but with more swords and less hiding. They traverse the treacherous seas, aiming for Dorne, and let’s just say things get pretty wild.

In a previous incarnation, writer Brian Helgeland gave it a go and described his version as “Ray Harryhausen’s Sinbad meets The Odyssey.” Sounds epic, right? But apparently, it was too far from the original GoT timeline. Imagine pitching Moses but swapping him for Nymeria, and you’ve got the gist. Her people’s homeland gets toasted, they end up living like nautical nomads, and the show was going to be a floating city spectacle – basically Waterworld, but without Kevin Costner.

But don’t worry, nothing stays dead in the world of Thrones (just ask Jon Snow). Now, with Eboni Booth at the helm, we’re back on course. Though Martin did joke, “We’re still trying to figure out how to pay for 10,000 ships, 300 dragons, and those giant turtles.” We’re guessing HBO is hitting up the Iron Bank as we speak.

So, dust off your Valyrian steel and get ready for more epic battles, political intrigue, and hopefully, a few more dragons. The world of Westeros just got a whole lot bigger, and we can’t wait to set sail!
