A petition has been created for HBO to remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with “competent writers.”
The petition created by Dylan D. on Change.org simply states:
“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.
This series deserves a final season that makes sense.
Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”
The petition has already been signed by nearly 118,000 people.
Here’s a bit of what people are saying.
Dugan Corsolini writes, “I don’t want these two anywhere near Star Wars, either. This was abysmal.”
Georgi Coggins writes, “I unfortunately I had to watch this shit to know it needs redoing.”
Shakyra Young writes, “I understand it’s GOT but don’t trash 8 yrs of character building for what they think will shock and awe us. It sucks”
AJ DiGirolomo writes, “Because Season 8 is shit and the fans deserve better than D&D’s half assed shitshow.”
Daniel Hubble says, “it was baaad. start at s7.”
I’ve made my own opinion rather clear on the topic following the Battle of Winterfell, where I compared Season 8 to Star Wars: The Last Jedi in how the season failed to stay true to the Game of Thrones universe and its characters.
Given the reputation Game of Thrones Season 8 is quickly gathering, it could spell doom for Disney and Lucasfilm as they’ve placed their chips behind the two Game of Thrones writers D.B. Weiss and David Benioff.
Disney recently announced three new Star Wars films following Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and scuttlebutt indicates these films will be helmed by Weiss and Benioff.
“We’re not just looking at what the next three movies might be, or talking about this in terms of a trilogy. We’re looking at: What is the next decade of storytelling?”
“As they finish Game of Thrones, they’re going to segue into Star Wars. They’re working very closely with Rian.”
Do you plan on signing this petition? What do you think about Game of Thrones Season 8 so far? Do you think the final episode could be a make or break episode for Game of Thrones and writers D.B. Weiss and David Benioff?
