Multiple Game of Thrones stars spotted together on the move

Game of Thrones Season 8 filming seems to have sped up quite a lot this week. We talked about increased activity at the Winterfell set in Moneyglass, and we have some new sightings reporting Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) who have both landed in Iceland for Season 8 filming. It looks like several others are on the move, as well. Read on!

The update, this time around, comes from Reddit. Redditor trufaxx posted a picture of several cast members of Game of Thrones together. Check it out, below:

Looks like this is from yesterday in Belfast (edited with updated info). Heading somewhere together.

Edit: Image link dropped off original post. Here you go:

(An online acquaintance sent it to me. I don’t have any more information other than those two pics.)

The picture was taken in an airport Starbucks, and features Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) and Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane). Trufaxx claimed that someone sent him the picture, and that according to that person, John Bradley (Sam Tarly), Daniel Portman (Podrick Payne) and Joe Dempsie (Gendry) were also present. The person who’s sitting with his back to the camera does look like John Bradley.

Now, since all of them were together at an airport, it is safe to assume that they all are headed to one location. There’s a good chance they’re headed to Belfast, but them taking the same plane to get there seems less likely. We have the latest update on Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington being in Iceland, so maybe this party is on their way to Iceland now.

We had talked about how the part where Emilia and Kit were spotted is the part of Iceland that has stood in for Beyond the Wall before, so if this bunch follows then to Iceland, we might be up for another adventure Beyond the Wall in Season 8.

A Weirdwood tree has popped up on the sets of Game of Thrones prequel, Bloodmoon

Game of Thrones prequel series Bloodmoon was ordered by HBO for a pilot, which means that the show is now filming, even though it’s for just one episode. Now, we have previously reported about the show’s ongoing filming, but today we have a familiar development on the sets. Read on!

As you might know, Bloodmoon is filming in Northern Ireland, as we expected it to. We also recently talked about the show’s simultaneous filming at Gaeta, Italy, and how we could have gotten what is possibly the first look at Naomi Watts in her character costume. There was another confirmation of her presence at the Italy shoots:

Moving back to the Northern Ireland sets, we have a bigger development. The sets we have seen till now have mostly looked like parts of a big cave rig, and now a Weirwood tree has popped up on the sets:

We knew the Children of the Forest were going to be a part of the storyline, so as such it’s not a surprise to see a Weirwood tree pop up. What do you guys think? Excited yet? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones prequel Bloodmoon is filming in Italy

Game of Thrones finally ended after an almost decade long run, and HBO isn’t wasting any time. The first approved prequel series to the show had begun the early stages of production recently, with the working title of ‘Bloodmoon‘. The show had begun filming in Northern Ireland, but reports are now saying that the show is also filming in Italy. Read on!

The official source for Game of Thrones news, Entertainment Weekly revealed that the filming on the pilot episode of the Game of Thrones prequel, Bloodmoon, has “quietly begun” in Northern Ireland. We also had some exclusive pictures of the locations being prepared for filming. Now, filming news for the show is coming from the Italian town of Gaeta, at Grotta del Turco, where the prequel is filming, according to local news outlet Il Messaggero:

The place matches what we have seen in Northern Ireland, where the filming will be in cave-like environments. A cave rig has also been built at the Titanic Studios at Belfast.

This is the first time for Westeros to find a location in Italy, with Spain being the closest it ever got.

In case you don’t remember, the prequel is helmed by Jane Goldman, along with George R. R. Martin. S. J. Clarkson has been hired to direct the pilot. The show has an ensemble cast starring Naomi Watts, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Miranda Richardson, Josh Whitehouse, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah, Alex Sharp and Toby Regbo.

The pilot will decide whether the show gets picked up for full production. Bloodmoon is expected to air in late 2020 or early 2021. We’ll be updating you about the prequel as it progresses.

Game of Thrones prequel update: new logos on signboards, filming in Marble Arch Cave, and more

Game of Thrones ended but has opened up new possibilities for the prequel series with the working title ‘Bloodmoon‘ whose pilot filming is under progress. While the last week we reported the cast and crew members gathering in Belfast for filming, today we bring you more new updates regarding the production of the new series, featuring some exclusive images.

First of all, for the ones who are already familiar with the ‘pink’ signboards Game of Thrones originally used for guiding the cast members to the filming locations, new signboards have emerged in Belfast this time orange in colour and with a new logo of mammoths. We’ve already seen a mammoth in the Wildling Army during the episode ‘The Watchers on the Wall’ in Season 4, and this logo suggests that we will definitely see more of them in the new series. Take a look:

Secondly, the Marble Arch Caves of Northern Ireland will reportedly remain closed for the filming of the prequel. Here are some of the photos:

Titanic Studies of Northern Ireland, Belfast serve as a prime location for the filming of Game of Thrones. While construction around the set was evident the last month, more and more set pieces have started in and around similar to what we saw for Season 8 of Game of Thrones, while it was under production. Here are a few photos:

Lastly, a source reported sightings of the crew and a few vanity vans around the Antrim Coast of Northern Ireland. It looks like Antrim Coast will also serve as a major filming location for the ‘Bloodmoon’ TV series. Check out these photos:

As months pass and we approach towards the end of the year, more and more updates on the filming and the cast and the crew will surely surface. Yet these quick updates are surely an easy way to get through what some fans weren’t expecting from the final season of Game of Thrones. We really hope the ‘Bloodmoon’ requel series lives up to the hype.
