Game Of Thrones There should have been a reunion with a character from the main series in the prequel

“Game Of Thrones”: There should have been a reunion with a character from the main series in the prequel

The “GoT” offshoot “The Long Night” should have played thousands of years before the plot of the mother series – and yet we FMOVIES have seen a well-known character! In the meantime, however, the series has been crushed, instead comes “House Of The Dragon”.

The development of the new “Game Of Thrones” series “House Of The Dragon” has only just started and the casting process has now started, and we get some information about what could have been. Because while “House Of The Dragon” is coming, another prequel series for “Game Of Thrones” has been canceled: “The Long Night” or “Bloodmoon”. The project operated under these titles, but the series never got a real title.

A pilot film for “The Long Night” was even shot and every “Game Of Thrones” fan should be hot for information about it, similar to the first pilot for “Game Of Thrones” itself, which was never broadcast.

The website Redanian Intelligence, which specializes in fantasy fabrics, now has some new information about “The Long Night”:

Leaf from “Game Of Thrones”

“The Long Night” would have gone thousands of years into the past, after all, the real origin of the White Walkers should be shown (which we really would have liked to see!). 8000 years before “Game Of Thrones” probably none of the people from the mother series lived – but in the world of “GoT” there are not only people.

So the Children Of The Forest (in German: Kinder des Waldes) would have played a role, including Leaf, which we have already seen in “Game Of Thrones”. In “GoT” the ancient mythical being was first played by Octavia Alexandru, and later by Kae Alexander. In “The Long Night” Doyin Ajiboye would have slipped into this role. Instead of a guest role like in “GoT” it would have been a regular role in the prequel.

So the Children Of The Forest (in German: Kinder des Waldes) would have played a role, including Leaf, which we have already seen in “Game Of Thrones”.

The names and actors of two other Children Of The Forest are now known: Cloud (Seyi Andes-Pelumi) and Lake (Felicia Mukasa).

Naomi Watts ‘daughter and twins

The character of Naomi Watts, who would have taken on the female lead as a “charismatic lady of society with a dark secret”, would have had a daughter who would also have played a prominent role: Aurelia (Amy McPherson). Since family conflicts and secrets play a major role in the world of “Game Of Thrones”, the relationship between the two should have been exciting.

Since family conflicts and secrets play a major role in the world of “Game Of Thrones”, the relationship between the two should have been exciting.

A pair of twins should have played an important part. In the meantime, triplets were probably looked for, but in the end they decided on twins. The characters should be called Caera and Vera, and Leah and Mhairi Gayer were hired as actresses. Redanian Intelligence suspects a Valyrian origin of the two because of the “ae” in Caera’s name.

100 kingdoms, at least one princess

In “Game Of Thrones” there are seven kingdoms, in “The Long Night” there would have been about a hundred – Westeros looked completely different at that time. The nobility would also have played a role in the prequel, at least one princess should have played a role – however, the name and actress are not known, only the name of the double. Gabriella Morales is a young girl, so either the princess would have been important as a child or her royal parents.

at least one princess should have played a part

Unfortunately, it has not yet been revealed how the Stark family would have been involved in the story and who exactly from this family would have been seen. That the Starks were to play a role was among the little information that was officially revealed about the plot.

At least we can expect the first actor names for the already officially ordered first season of “House Of The Dragon” shortly. We are excited!

Cursed Thats why a second season of the Netflix series is so likely

“Cursed”: That’s why a second season of the Netflix series is so likely

Anyone who loves fantasy series like “Game Of Thrones” and “The Witcher” should have been quite happy about the new Netflix series “Cursed”. We’ll tell you now why a second season is very likely.

The Netflix series “Cursed – The Chosen One” is currently on everyone’s lips and dominates the top 10 of the streaming service. Ten episodes of the fantasy adventure have been available for download since July 17, 2020 and the adventures of Nimue (Katherine Langford), Arthur (Devon Terrell) and the magician Merlin (Gustaf Skarsgård) have already found numerous fans.

Anyone who has already seen the series finale, of course, inevitably raises the question of how and whether the story will be passed on. Will there be a second season? We have found reasons that speak for it.

Will there be a second season? We have found reasons that speak for it

So far, Netflix has not yet officially commented on further episodes of “Cursed”, after all, the series has not been running long. Above all, the end of the first season speaks definitely for a sequel …

The end of “Cursed” is just the beginning

The stuff “Cursed” is made of is anything but new. The Arthurian legend, which is closely interwoven with the stories about the magician Merlin and the sword Excalibur, is one of the most important mythologies of Britain, goes back to the 9th century of literary history and is still reinterpreted to this day – both in books, as well as in films and series.

The “Cursed” series also contains some elements of the ancient saga, although it is based on the modern illustrated novel by Tom Wheeler and “300” creator Frank Miller *. In fact, there is still no sequel to the book – a second season of the series is still not unlikely.

What happened to Nimue in “Cursed”?

Warning, spoilers at the end of “Cursed”!

Warning, spoilers at the end of “Cursed”!

At the end of the first season, everything looks like the young heroine Nimue, who, together with Arthur, brings a precious sword to the magician Merlin, is dying. Pierced by arrows, she falls into a river. A cliffhanger that should shock the fans.

Anyone familiar with the Arthurian legend knows that Nimue will most likely not die – she still has some big tasks ahead of her. In many other books and films, Nimue is known as the “Mistress of the Lake” and occupies a central position in further mythology. In the famous novel “The Mists of Avalon” by Marion Zimmer Bradley, for example, it is an important part of the story.

So that Nimue will be resurrected in the second season of “Cursed” is quite likely.

Who is the Weeping Monk?

Without question, the revelation of the true identity of the monk (Daniel Sharman) with the bloody tears on his face is the biggest twist at the end FMovie the first season of “Cursed”. The shady character is Lancelot, who is of course an integral part of many Arthurian stories.

Lancelot’s other story alone could fill a second season of “Cursed”. In the last few episodes, the Weeping Monk develops into a hero who, however, has to make amends for some atrocities. In other versions of the Arthurian legend, Lancelot is Arthur’s best friend, Guinevere’s lover and always on the lookout for the Holy Grail.

Nimue’s future, Lancelot’s development, and a few other open narrative threads in “Cursed” strongly suggest that a second season of the Netflix series is likely. As soon as we know more about it, we will of course inform you about it.

New on DVD

New on DVD

We had to wait seven years for the new animated XMOVIES8 by the “Monster Uni” maker – and then “Onward: No half measures” disappeared from the cinemas after a short time due to Corona. Now the film is finally available on DVD and Blu-ray.

Pixar has produced 22 films since its cinema debut in 1995 (“Toy Story”) – you can currently find 21 of them on Disney *. For the time being, however, you won’t find the latest animated film from the family-friendly hit maker on the mouse company’s own streaming platform.

Trailer for “Soul”: This is the next Pixar movie

“Onward: No half measures” was released in German cinemas on March 5, 2020, shortly before the corona pandemic caused the cinemas to be generally closed. Disney responded and released the fantasy fun early on May 22 as video-on-demand *. Those who prefer to have their films on the shelf will also be served from today:

“Onward” on DVD, Blu-ray

“Onward” on DVD, Blu-ray

This is “Onward: No half measures”

The world used to be full of magic. But with increasing technological progress, it disappeared more and more from our everyday life. When the two elf brothers Ian (voice in the original: Tom Holland) and Barley Lightfoot (Chris Pratt) finally have their 16th birthday behind them, the magic is about to return to the Lightfoot household.

The mother of the two (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) gives the boys a gift from their dead father (Kyle Bornheimer) – a mysterious stick with which the brothers can bring their father back to the realm of the living for a day. But the magic goes wrong, and so the two suddenly stand with their father’s lower body …

Animation fun also in 3D

While it should only be a matter of time before “Onward” lands on Disney (with “Toy Story 4” it took almost eight months), the streaming platform only serves those Disney fans who 2D is sufficient. But the 3D fans have also been thought of:

And it is not entirely natural that Disney will release “Onward” on 3D Blu-ray. Because even if the trend of three-dimensional images is on the decline again, the 3D adventures still have a loyal following. While Disney recently only released selected 3D films for home theater in 2D (“Chaos on the Net”, “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms”), fans of the third dimension will get their money’s worth with “Onward”.

And it is not entirely natural that Disney will release “Onward” on 3D Blu-ray.

New on Disney: An expensive fairy tale blockbuster that justifiably flopped in the cinema

New films on Disney Plus are still rather rare in direct comparison with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. But the streaming service isn’t doing its subscribers a favor with this early Christmas present.

— opinion —

— opinion —

Two capable directors, one after the other, bit their teeth on the subject – and put the 130 million dollar fairy tale blockbuster “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” in the snow despite the all-star cast …

First, arthouse star director Lasse Hallström (“Gilbert Grape”, “Chocolat”) tried to make the real version of the famous ballet by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, which in turn was based on the short story “Nutcracker and Mouse King” by E.T.A. Hoffmann based. The blockbuster experienced Joe Johnston then took over the extensive re-shoots – but even the “Captain America – The First Avenger” director couldn’t save much.

Christmas in midsummer

Everything about “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” screams for winter and Christmas (hence the cinema release in November 2018). On Disney, on the other hand, the film will now be released in midsummer – but maybe that’s not so bad, because you can maybe 123movies cool off a little with the shivering snowy landscapes. The only problem is: the fairy tale leaves its audience absolutely cold, even outside the winter setting!

The fairy tale leaves its audience absolutely cold, even outside of the winter setting!

The 1.5-star review by says: “A genre monotony that is just as arbitrary as it is loveless, which for the most part simply recycles cliché elements from other fantasy films such as ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ and yet not touching them or even just a coherent narrative. ”It’s a shame about superstars like Morgan Freeman as the wise godfather Drosselmeyer, Keira Knightley as the crazy sugar fairy or Helen Mirren as the tyrannical mother Gigeon.

The 1.5-star review by says:

Kitsch fans get their money’s worth

As a narrative, “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms”, in which Clara (Mackenzie Foy) suddenly lands in a fantasy world consisting of four realms while chasing a mouse on Christmas Eve, is a big disappointment. But where there was no messing about, there was the equipment: Those who just can’t get enough of the kitschy Christmas decorations in winter Disney World will get their money’s worth here too.

But where there was padding and not spilling, the equipment is:

So our criticism closes with the statement: “Anyone who likes Disney’s artificial understanding of a perfect Christmas can indulge in the pompous and sugar-sweet backdrops and costumes for 100 minutes without being distracted by something like a plot in between become.”
