‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 8 Premiere: 18-Minute Behind-The-Scenes Featurette
Monday, April 15th, 2019 at 4:52 pm
It’s the last season of Game Of Thrones, and although the season 8 premiere episode didn’t tell us who would be claiming the throne, we have learned that Cersei really wanted elephants for her army, Tyrion likes to tell a lot of ball jokes to the eunuch Varys, and Bran can give a dirty glance to Jaime. Of course, I’m not going to reveal some of the bigger spoilers here, but I can tell you that the stage is being set for one grand series finale.
But for those who love a behind-the-scenes look, especially for one of the most popular television shows, you can see how Winter Town, a small little town just outside of Winterfell, was created; the expectations for the first episode of the final season; what it like for the cast to come back, and much more. Check out the video here below.
In the 18-minute featurette, released on the Game Of Thrones YouTube page, we learn what it takes to create the settings, make riding on dragons look real, reunions between the cast and crew, and so much more. Basically, it looks at the production side of things. So don’t expect to see any real big spoilers. That is, unless you haven’t watched the episode yet.
This probably won’t be the last kind of behind-the-scenes featurette you’ll be seeing for the series. As there are only 5 episodes left, HBO is going to give us as many looks at the show, whether it’s an episode or a behind-the-scenes look, as possible. Because this will be our last chance to see the fight for the throne. At least until the spinoffs and prequels start to appear.
Created by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, Game Of Thrones stars Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams. The next episode premieres exclusively on HBO on Sunday, April 21, 2019.
