Emilia, Kit, and the showrunners David and Dan tease Game Of Thrones Season 8 in the latest edition of TV Guide

Game of Thrones Season 8 is nearly four months or lesser away from its day of airing and while we prepare for the new season, every week a new update or two keeps beefing up. First, we got the first exclusive image of Jon and Daenerys on the cover of Entertainment Weekly where they also shared a cover story revealing some details about the opening scene from the new season.

Now, it’s the turn of another popular magazine – TV Guide who have published another cover story interviewing cast members Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, and the showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff. TV Insider first elaborated this story, where David Benioff and D B Weiss opened up on how the things may go wrong as now both Jon and Daenerys are in love and that they are connected. They also discussed the scope of the new season.

Emilia, Kit, and the showrunners David and Dan tease Game Of Thrones Season 8 in the latest edition of TV GuideBenioff first teased the new season, remarking:

“The scope of this season definitely exceeds anything we’ve attempted before.”

Jon Snow’s heritage was the top secret that Ned Stark has kept from the entire Westeros 17 years prior to his friend’s rebellion against the Targaryens. Now that world’s biggest CCTV archive Bran Stark and the Citadel dropout Samwell Tarly have finally cracked the code, Weiss said:

“From a dramatic standpoint, it makes things interesting, because the story is no longer about who Jon’s parents are. It’s about what happens when Jon finds out.”

Game of Thrones spin-off prequels won't be here till 2020, says HBOJon’s parents Rhaegar and Lyanna have been the key propelling factors of the story, and even the title is based on the song they’ve metaphorically written down i.e. Jon Snow – the song of Ice and Fire. Also, we’ve already known the truthfulness Jon has with his Stark blood, given the way he almost messed things with Cersei, saying “I cannot serve two queens at once.” (Cersei would betray them anyway, won’t she?). Kit reacts to Jon finding of his heritage and his relation with Dany,

“Jon is someone who plays by the book. He cannot lie,” He said. “Finding out about Dany would be very hard for him.”

Emilia too has her own ways of reacting to Jon and Dany’s blooming relationship and how it may play out in Season 8. She said:

“Daenerys’s lifelong dream has been to avenge her family and claim her rightful seat on the Iron Throne. She truly loves Jon. Were she to find out about his title, it would cut deep.”

George R. R. Martin talks about House of The Dragon Teaser Trailer

House of The Dragon’s first teaser trailer is finally here! The teaser was released by HBO at the end of the HBO Max European launch event and it features a voiceover by Matt Smith who plays the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen. It broke the internet as soon as it was released, and fans are going crazy over the accuracy and detail shown in the teaser. It was watched by over 10 million viewers in less than three days of its launch! And George R. R. Martin has something to say about the teaser trailer.

Martin wrote on his blog Not a Blog:

Yes, I know, most of you have already seen this. (What can I say? I am busy. Juggling so many balls, so many projects, posting stuff on my Not A Blog is not my highest priority, so things may always be a little bit behind here).

For the handful who have been off the internet the past few days, however… HBO has released the first official teaser/trailer for HOUSE OF THE DRAGON. Here ’tis.

Enjoy.

(And yes, I love it too. Ryan and Miguel and their team are kicking ass and taking names).”

Looking at the current speed of production, we can hope Martin’s earlier prediction about the prequel’s release will come to fruition. What do you think about House of The Dragon? Talk to us in the comments below!

A young Alicent Hightower takes over the Iron Throne in Leicester Square

The filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is progressing really smoothly, besides minor delays everything’s looking good for HBO’s high priority project. HBO recently dropped the first official teaser trailer for House of The Dragon, and fans are going crazy about it. That being said, we know that filming for the prequel show will be starting in Spain the next week, and the cast and crew members are gathering up at the Castle of La Calahorra.

The actors are taking a small break from their busy schedule before the shoot resumes, and it seems Emily Carey, who will be playing a young Alicent Hightower in the show is having fun with a replica of the Iron Throne.

Carey recently posted a picture on her official Twitter account. She seems to be enjoying a quiet day at Leicester Square, and her preferred choice of furniture is the Iron Throne replica. She wrote in the caption, “Found this chair in Leicester Square (wearing green was coincidental).” #HOTD #HouseofTheDragon #AlicentHightower

Do you think the future Queen of Westeros was foreshadowing a scene from House of The Dragon? Wearing green was coincidental? Maybe, maybe not. Only time will tell.
