Are you a Game of Thrones fan? Love the stories told in the Dorne of A Song of Ice and Fire? Bummed out by how things have been handled on the HBO iteration? Wish you could bankroll a more expansive Sand Snakes storyline with all your extra millions lying around? Well thank the Seven, because there’s a Kickstarter for that — and all they’re asking for is a cool $20 million!
Dubbed “Fixing Dorne,” the project was set up by writer/actor David Panfilo (who wrote some of the questions for the official Game of Thrones trivia board game), Sean Ireland (a producer, 1st AD, writer, actor, and director), Vincent Pezzutti, and artist/writers Teela Wyman and Jonathan Ying (Ying was even the lead designer for that official Game of Thrones trivia board game). Its goal? To create fully written/edited/acted out scenes that expand the story happening, give us more fleshed-out characters, and get Areo Hotah to swing that badass blade of his a little bit more.
It’s a fairly involved project, so we’ll let the video do most of the talking:
And if you’re worried that they have no additional plans in place should their goal be met and exceeded, fear not: the boys have plans for if hey make up to $50 million, which includes hiring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Alexander Siddig to reprise their roles — aaaaand plans for an epic Jermone Flynn/Robson Green musical reunion.
What do you think of the updates? Are you going to contribute to the campaign? We’re thinking about it…but only if they somehow incorporate this missing character/storyline into Dorne:[brightcove video_id=”4850855347001″ brightcove_account_id=”3653334524001″ brightcove_player_id=”2bfa565b-5412-4cfd-9211-6269880b8a5e”]
