With the SXSW debut of the series American Gods only weeks away and the television premiere this April, Neil Gaiman has announced a documentary, titled American Gods: Origins, on his novel series that will take viewers to the place where it all began, Reykjavik, Iceland.
Gaiman will reveal what inspired him to create American Gods. And how Norse mythology shaped the novels featuring a war between the old Gods and the new. The documentary will be released by Netflix but no release date has been announced at this point.
The series centers on the battle brewing between the Old Gods and the New Gods. The Old Gods are rooted in mythology and the religions of days gone by. The New Gods have found their footing thanks to people’s obsession with money, technology, celebrities, and drugs. The series will also deal with issues such as women’s rights, gun control, racial divides, incarceration and other aspects of today’s society.
