Looks like we weren’t the only ones mind-blown by the epic trailer for ‘Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens’! After George watched the trailer, it made his ‘creative juices flow again’ and now he’s ‘determined’ to finally finish his book!
We’ve been dying to know when “The Winds of Winter” will be released, and now we can rest knowing George R.R. Martin is hard at work! George was so inspired by the trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, that he wants Game of Thrones fans to feel the same epic excitement about his book. He’s planning to buckle down and have his new book completed soon, and HollywoodLife.com can tell you when!
George R.R. Martin Finishing ‘Game Of Thrones’ Book After ‘Star Wars’ Trailer
George knows that people are anxiously awaiting the new book in the Game of Thrones series, but he’s had a hard time trying to find time to write, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
However, after the Star Wars trailer was released on Nov. 28, that was just the extra push he needed — George is ready to have the book completed for 2015!
“He was really excited about the Star Wars trailer and knows that people will feel the same way once his book is out,” our source says. “He finally looked into things as a fan and not as a writer. The trailer opened up something he has been missing lately, the wonderment of everything is making his creative juices flow again. He is determined to have the new book out and ready for 2015.”
HollywoodLife.com also reached out to George’s rep for comment, but he was out of the country.
We know the new book will be just as epic as Star Wars!
‘Game Of Thrones’ Spoilers: George R.R. Martin Talks ‘The Winds Of Winter’
We were so excited about George’s book when he stopped by the 92Y in New York City on Oct. 28 and dished on some spoilers in his upcoming book.
George revealed that the “world” is big and getting bigger. The new book will explain thousands of years of history surrounding Westeros, Essos, and nearby and faraway lands. The book will also feature stunning artwork from painter Marc Simonetti‘s rendition of the Iron Throne.
We are so happy George found inspiration in the best way possible, and want 2015 to come faster!
