Game of Thrones is a work of fantasy, and a pretty amazing one at that. The different locations described in the book were hard to pull off, but HBO has consistently managed to wow us with the kind of spectacle they create, of which the choice of filming locations forms the basis. We have had some amazing filming locations for the show over the years, and now we have some detail about where Game of Thrones Season 8 could film. A new report now says that Game of Thrones is likely to be filmed in Andulasia, Spain.
A new report by Spanish fan site for Game of Thrones, Los Siete Reinos, recently discussed a report by Andalucia Information, which talked about how Game of Thrones might return to the region for filming. Carlos Rosado, the president of the Andalucía Film Comission, recently appeared on a local program called Acento Andaluz, and answered some questions about the show, the biggest one being whether Andalusia will see the HBO production again. He didn’t give us a confirmation, but it seems like there are solid chances of the production returning to the area. He said (translated) :
“We convinced Game of Thrones to come to our land for seasons 6 and 7, so I don’t think it’s unrealistic to say that, as long as nothing goes awry, season 8 will be filmed here as well.”
It’s not too much of a long shot, either. Game of Thrones has been filming in Spain for almost three seasons now. Season 5 showed some of Spain in Water Gardens of Dorne and Daznak’s Pit in Meereen. Season 6 showed more of Spain, in some of King’s Landing, Tower of Joy, and Horn Hill. As far as Season 7 goes, we know through the leaks and reveals that an even larger share of the filming took place in Spain, with the Dragonstone scenes, and the scenes with the Dothraki and a dragon, which we saw in the Season 7 trailer filmed at Malpartida de Cáceres.
So it seems like we’ll be seeing some more of that Spanish goodness back in Season 8 of Game of Thrones. Only only little problem : Season 8 might not be here till 2019. Season 7, however, premieres July 16th, so make sure you soak it all in this season, because it might be a long wait after! Talk to us in the comments, down below!
