Game of Thrones season eight: HBO says "they’re like six movies"
At the recent Golden Globes, HBO CEO Richard Plepler offered a little insight into the upcoming final season of Game of Thrones. Talking to Variety, he stated:
“It’s a spectacle. The guys have done six movies. The reaction I had while watching them was, ‘I’m watching a movie,’
Discussing showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, Plepler added:
“They knew the bar was high. They’ve exceeded the bar. I’ve watched them twice without any CGI and I’m in awe. Everybody’s in for an extraordinary treat of storytelling and of magical, magical production.”
