MTV on Prince of Persia


“I’m looking at [all the forms Prince of Persia has taken throughout the years] going, we have all these all different conflicting stories and yet they’re all still ‘Prince of Persia.’ So I asked [writer] A.B. [Sina] — because he’s so deeply versed in Persian history and folklore — I asked him [if] there is a way in which they are the same character, even though they’re clearly not. And what he did is incredible. He weaves back and forth between two different time periods – the 9th and the 13th century – the past telling the story of the future, the future telling the story of the past, and it’s cool.” -- Jordan Mechner on MTV.com
