A miniseries that many believe is on the same level as “Game of Thrones” is about to arrive on Disney+.
In 2011, the HBO launched the epic “Game of Thrones”based on the books of George R. R. Martin, which told the story of Westeros where after a ten-year summer, a harsh winter promises to arrive with a darker future. Meanwhile, several characters manipulate, lie and deceive to get the Iron Thronethe symbol of absolute power.
In recent years, we have seen several bets such as “Foundation” (AppleTV+); “Rings of Power”, “Wheel of Time” and “Citadel” (Prime Video); “The Witcher” (Netflix) who never managed to fill the void that the HBO series left.
Not even the saga itself “House of the Dragon” managed to live up to its predecessor, falling short in the way it performed in the television awards.
Now, there is a new production from FX coming to Disney+, which promises to rival “Game of Thrones” and fight for the fantasy throne that has been left vacant since 2019.
Adapted from romance in James Clavell“Shōgun” is a 10-episode miniseries coming to Disney+ that takes place in Japan in 1600, at the beginning of the civil war that would change the country forever. The focus will be on Yoshii Toranaga (Hiroyuki Sanada), a nobleman who must fight for his survival after other members of the Council of Regents turn against him. However, his luck will change with the arrival of a mysterious European ship with an English captain, who brings with him secrets that could help Toranaga and reduce the influence of Jesuit priests and Portuguese traders in the country. To aid communication, the nobleman requires the help of a woman who comes from a disgraced family.
Gamesradar has no doubt, “If it solves its problems in a sequel, it could very well end up being the next big TV phenomenon based on books. Watch out, “Game of Thrones”, she’s coming to your throne…”.
“Shōgun” premieres with its first two episodes on February 27th on Disney+.
