I am all for this prequel. Was very worried but Watts made me go “I have the utmost fate since she is on board”October 31, 2018 at 6:26 am #1202665541
GOT, created by Benioff and Weiss, has a male lead, Jon Snow. Looking to differentiate itself from the mothership series and coming from a female writer, Goldman, it was a logical assumption that the prequel could have a female lead
Wat? Guess the writer forgot about DanyOctober 31, 2018 at 6:38 am #1202665552
Naomi in the Westeros universe?!?!?!?!? Best news of the whole year.
As for Jon Snow being the only lead… fuck that, who has given the majority of the most iconic scenes on this show? The most popular character of the series is and will be Daenerys Targaryen.October 31, 2018 at 12:21 pm #1202665729
I don’t know him, but he probably will be the “Jon Snow” of the prequel. Hollywood Reporter said it is a key role, but not the central male lead.October 31, 2018 at 12:22 pm #1202665731
I am putting the prequel’s news here because it will be a long time until the “The Long Night” premiere, maybe just 2020, so it’s too early to create a thread.October 31, 2018 at 12:38 pm #1202665739
I am more interested in the rumored “Empire of Ash”(about the fall of Valyria) than in The Long Night .October 31, 2018 at 1:16 pm #1202665758October 31, 2018 at 1:16 pm #1202665759

Same, but RIP in pieces to the budget that has to support the Doom. If the meme was that the direwolves were cut to pay for the CGI for three dragons I can only imagine what it’ll take to produce tons of dragons + 500-plus miles of volcanic explosions + tsunamis + etc.November 1, 2018 at 6:01 am #1202666196November 1, 2018 at 6:06 am #1202666200

Season 8 opens at Winterfell with an episode that contains plenty of callbacks to the show’s pilot. Instead of King Robert’s procession arriving, it’s Daenerys and her army. What follows is a thrilling and tense intermingling of characters — some of whom have never previously met, many who have messy histories — as they all prepare to face the inevitable invasion of the Army of the Dead.
The drama builds to a confrontation with the Army of the Dead that’s expected to be the most sustained action sequence ever made for television or film. One episode — the same that Benioff and Weiss were concerned about pulling off so many years ago — is wall-to-wall action, courtesy of “Battle of the Bastards” director Miguel Sapochnik.November 2, 2018 at 2:58 am #1202666727
Last April a crew member revealed that Game of Thrones had wrapped 55 night shoots while filming a battle. Media outlets around the world ran stories saying the final season’s battle took twice as long as the 25-day shoot for season 6’s climactic Battle of the Bastards. This wildly understated what really happened. The 55 nights were only for the battle’s outdoor scenes at the Winterfell set. Filming then moved into the studio, where Sapochnik continued shooting the same battle for weeks after that.
“It’s brutal,” Dinklage says. “It makes the Battle of the Bastards look like a theme park.”
The battle doesn’t have just one focus, either, but rather intercuts between multiple characters involved in their own survival storylines that each feels like its own genre. “Having the largest battle doesn’t sound very exciting — it actually sounds pretty boring,” Benioff says. “Part of our challenge, and really, Miguel’s challenge, is how to keep that compelling… we’ve been building toward this since the very beginning, it’s the living against the dead, and you can’t do that in a 12-minute sequence.”
To help pull it off, the production hugely expanded its set for the Stark ancestral home of Winterfell, adding a towering castle exterior, a larger courtyard, and more interconnected rooms and ramparts. Strolling around the new Winterfell is like wandering a sprawling, immersive medieval resort compared with its previous Days Inn-like scale. The ground is covered with snow and blood. The air is thick with smoke from the fire pits. You can turn any direction and only see more Winterfell. It’s easy to feel like you’ve somehow wandered into Westeros
HBO be wise and not oversubmit!! This could be the easiest Emmy in their history, if not for vote splitting
