Steven Spielberg Says The Squid Game Has Changed The Entertainment Industry For The Better
The acclaimed director offers his perspective on the Korean series produced by Netflix. South Korean Netflix achieved spectacular things with The Squid Game – 100% , the platform’s star series that swept the world a few months ago. Its scope has been such that Steven Spielberg recognizes it as one of the productions that have come to change the entertainment industry forever; it is clear that the director knows very well how things work in this business.
The Squid Game presents us with the story of a strange initiative that recruits hundreds of people with financial problems to compete for a multi-million dollar prize, however, the games they will undergo include a deadly risk. But the need for income is much stronger, so many decide to stay and fight for the ultimate prize. The series was written and directed by Hwang Dong-hyuk , who took a long time to sell his script written over a decade ago. Things have changed for him and now he enjoys the honeys of success and surely a good loot thanks to Netflix.
The millions of hours of reproductions of The Squid Game were reflected in the phenomenon that was present on social networks and in real life. Remarkable dynamics appeared in multiplayer video games, countless memes, people dressing up as the characters. Steven Spielberg spoke about the Korean series during his time at the Producers Guild Awards panel (via Games Radar ), thanking Ted Sarandos (Netflix co-CEO and chief content officer) for making Squid Game a reality .
The squid game appears and changes math completely for all of us. Thanks, Ted. A long time ago, it was the national stars that attracted the public to the cinema. Today, it’s interesting, unknown people can star in entire mini-series, they can be in movies.
Netflix confirmed a second season for The Squid Game long ago , however, writing it is proving to be more complicated than it seems. His lead writer took several years to conceive the first season, so working on the second must be a huge burden for him right now. It is known that he himself has not yet begun to write, and that he only has a handful of ideas on the table that he could extend later. Fans will have to wait a while for news.
Netflix and the creative team at The Squidward Game must play their cards very well if they are to develop a successful sequel. It would be sad if the new chapters were not up to the first and that they were not able to overcome the reproduction numbers. At this time, Squid Game continues to have a strong impact on social networks; South Korean culture reaches a new triumph in its mission to spread to the rest of the world and it does so through the children’s games of its country.
The red giant of streaming continues to prove that it is the leader in the business for a reason: its reach in all corners of the planet allows it to develop products of local interest that sometimes end up attracting the attention of a global audience. As Sarandos mentioned some time ago, the universe of The Squidward Game is just beginning, for how many years will it stretch and how will it go? A new blockbuster franchise is coming for world domination.
