game of Thrones He has returned, but even those who are watching closely may have missed a pair of high profile cameos at the premiere of the previous night's season. You caught Martin starr (Silicon Valley, Party Down, Freaks and Geeks) Y Rob McElhenney (It's always sunny in Philadelphia) in small papers? Did you know Star Wars creator George Lucas Did you visit the set during the filming of "Winterfell"? See all that and more in an excellent behind-the-scenes video, enter the episode to get more information from the show runners and check out the new sequence of titles below.
Game of thrones cameos, images behind the scenes and more
HBO started producing Revealed game, a series of short documentaries, during the seventh season of the program, and continue for season 8. This is a high quality video behind the scenes, something that was clearly done thinking about the fans, which is so informative as entertaining (I have to love those bloopers placed sporadically in everything).
Showrunners David benioff Y Dan Weiss they are friends with It's always sunny in Philadelphia guys – they wrote an episode of that show and they showed up as "Bored Lifeguard # 1 and # 2" in another – so it's great to see McElhenney (aka "Mac") finally make an appearance on Thrones years later. I'm not sure why Martin Starr was on a walk, but more power for him!
As for George Lucas, it makes sense that he would pass by as Benioff and Weiss are working on a new Star Wars Trilogy for his old company, Lucasfilm. In addition, Lucas has another Star Wars Connection in the set in the form of an actress. Emilia Clarke, who played Qi'ra in Solo: A Star Wars story.
"When we discovered that George Lucas wanted to visit, we thought maybe it was a practical joke. And then we were really excited and also nervous because, it's George Lucas, "said Benioff." The first time I remember telling stories was when I was a little boy who was collecting these stormtrooper dolls, for many of us, he's the that started our obsession with this kind of great epic narrative. "
I like this video because it is much deeper than the shorter ones "Inside the Episode" that also accompany each episode. But feel free to see that, too! I do not blame anyone for wanting so much game of Thrones #contain as much as possible these days: it's like if you finally sink your head in a tank of cold water after traversing a Thrones-From the desert for almost two years.
Do you see what I mean, though? That first featurette is infinitely better. This has a few interesting moments, but in large part it only tells us what we already know. However, there is one thing worth noting: the area of the waterfall where Jon and Dany landed was apparently a place where Jon used to hunt as a child. I do not think the episode itself indicates it in any way, but that's it!
As a record (for HBO), 17.4 million viewers watched the premiere of the eighth season the night before, precipitating the biggest HBO broadcast night in history, fans enjoyed a new sequence of titles. Instead of flying around the map of the known world, it shows a newly damaged Wall, briefly addresses Last Hearth, and then spends most of its time concentrating on two key locations: Winterfell and King's Landing. These opening credits have always been among the best on television, and it's especially good to see them devote even more time to creating recognizable areas of these two sets. Watch for details, such as the Targaryen dragons that burn cities through the astrolabe bands, a Lannister soldier holding a wolf's head cut off next to a wolf full of arrows hanging in the center of the picture, and even small Easter eggs, like Map of Cersei of Westeros on the ground.
