My brief proposal for a series of animated films for A Song of Ice and Fire.

Now that the TV series has finished, and we were given an "ending," I believe a series of animated films should be produced for A Song of Ice and Fire novels.  The animated films could do things that the TV series couldn't do, being that they are cartoons, and they would certainly be less of a logistical nightmare for the producers and actors.  Perhaps even some of the TV actors could reprise their roles.

I picture them as more PG-13 with stylistic violence and nudity (such as a tasteful silhouette of a female form behind a mist for example) Outright pornography, IN MY OPINION, should be dropped or downgraded significantly.  It would better to aim for a younger and a wider audience (such as in China who has more censorship) for this animated version of the story.  Everyone knows there were a lot of awkward moments to sit through with your family in the TV show.  Again that is just my opinion.

The films should be feature length size (2 to 3 hrs), and be released at a rate twice a year—or maybe more.

This is just a general idea of mine but here's how the structure should be.  I even provided titles for most of the films that I think work....

Game of Thrones

This first animated film will focus on the stories of characters in Winterfell, King's Landing, and the other places in Westeros in the novel Game of Thrones.
