King's Landing set ablaze, hundreds of extras filming, green screens, and the aftermath

Game of Thrones is currently filming for Season 8, and it seems to be nearing the end. In the meantime, we have been seeing a lot of activity at the King’s Landing set at Titanic Studios. We have been having quite a few reports from this set, and most of them more or less speak of destruction. In the past few days, as Game of Thrones Season 8 came closer and closer to finish, we saw King’s Landing get beaten up badly. Let’s get into it!

Game of Thrones data reveals the finale’s most discussed character on social media

Well, you might remember that we had recently reported about King’s Landing having some smoke emerging from it. Well, it looks like they went ahead and put more fuel to the fire:

A large chunk of the set was set on fire, with the possible damage likely exceeding any previous damage to this set:

You can see a backup dome up there, which is likely the replacement for the burned down one, since HBO is going to keep the set open as a tourist attraction.

Moving on, we have some pictures of the set, from a different Twitter user, GoTlikeLocations:

One of the towers that take fire damage was plastered with a green screen, which means we will be seeing some CGI on there:

As the fire died down, another Game of Thrones fan, Oakleaf Photography, managed to take detailed images of the set in ruins:

Now, we know that some residual filming still remains, and A Red Priestess seems to have heard of a rumor that says filming will wrap up in the first week of July:

Let’s see what else rolls out of the set before filming finishes. What do you guys think about this? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
