David Benioff and DB Weiss

The creators of “Game of Thrones“, David Benioff and DB Weiss, are currently promoting their latest series – “3 body problem“, which will hit Netflix next month. In one of their last interviews, they talked about what prompted them to leave HBO.

“Game of Thrones” for smartphones?

Can you imagine Game of Thrones adapted for smartphones? Vertical photo format and several-minute episodes that can be viewed like an Instagram reel? It turns out that this was the vision of Warner Media’s owners- which the series’ creators did not like. They talked about it in an interview with the Wall Street Journal Magazine.

When you sign a five-year contract, you want the company’s situation to be stable so that you can do your job in peace and not worry that a telecommunications company will buy out your company, said Benioff.

This is the AT&T company that owns Warner Media, and therefore also HBO. According to Benioff and Weiss, They pressured the filmmakers to shoot in a vertical format. This was supposed to make it easier to watch the series on smartphones (as if there was no option to flip the screen). For the same reason, AT&T also demanded “quick consumption” mini-episodes.

Benioff and Weiss also confirmed a long-circulating rumor that the Game of Thrones finale would be presented in three films rather than thirteen episodes divided into two seasons.
