Creative Director talks about hints hidden in intros

With the onset of the latest season of Game of Thrones, there are countless fans coming up with their own versions of what happens in the shows and countless other forms of speculation which seem just as plausible as the next one in line. However, the Creative Director of the series recently revealed that the hints to the show rests in the intro sequences.

It turns out that the intro sequence which had been more or less similar throughout all the seven past seasons with some minor differences is being changed for season eight. The new season will bring along a new intro sequence for the show with drastic changes as compared to previous changes. Creative Director Angus Wall revealed that he had other plans for the intro sequence and that his version would be nothing like the ones seen today. When asked about whether this intro could be found in the final season of the show, he said that it was not a possibility.

“We explored that with an animated sequence following the raven,” said Wall. “In the interim, though, there was an issue that came up during the pilot, which was that nobody knew what the wider world looked like or where anyone was. So we created these little map journeys to go in-between scenes.”

he further revealed that his creative team were highly motivated for the job they were given and that they wanted everything to be hand-built. This reportedly served the purpose of a madman working away in solace, making a world as per his own grand scheme of the ideal. A stark resemblance to what the ultimate prize in ‘Game of Thrones’ really is.

“The idea was that everything needed to be hand-built, he said. “The idea of a mad monk in a tower, building all this stuff and going at it with a saw and a chisel. Making sure he’s building his world the way he wants.”

However, the final addition which the creative director had to include was the fact that they were including quite a lot of easter eggs in the intros for their fans. He said that the entire process was quite fun, but it also gave hints about what’s to occur in the series. Provided the fans can figure the easter eggs out.

“There are a lot of Easter eggs in the titles if you’re paying attention,” Wall teased. “Little things that will reward you over the course of the show. And this last season won’t be any different.”

While this would certainly speak a lot to the ones who are able to decipher the language of these easter eggs and figure them out, this can also serve to create a lot of extra controversies and fan theories about these shows as well seeing how different people would perceive these hints differently. In the end game, the genius of this plan lies in the fact that they can give away major details about the show without really giving out anything about it. Fans would have to wait and find out what eventually happens the old fashioned way instead, when the final season airs on April 14.

Something in the intro that has always pestered me is during the Winterfell flyover, while zooming in on the werewood tree, what looks like a snowflake drops down on the tree. There was never any snow in Winterfell (in the earlier seasons), but that little object has always been there. Probably nothing, just a single snowflake to let the viewer know that they’re in a colder region. I guess I’ll know if something happens at the tree this season.

See Emilia Clarke in the trailer for her first film post Game of Thrones, Last Christmas

Game of Thrones might have made big stars of most of the actors that were on the show, but for nearly a decade, these stars were also somewhat tied down to the show, and couldn’t take on too many other projects. A prime example is Emilia Clarke, who hasn’t appeared in many films or TV series during her time on Game of Thrones. However, now we have the trailer for the first film Emilia is going to be starring in since she wrapped up the show – Last Christmas. Read on!

Last Christmas looks like your typical holiday cheer filled rom-com that we’re all in the mood for around that time. It stars Emilia Clarke in what seems like a role that mirrors her natural bubbly personality, and opposite her is Henry Golding from Crazy Rich Asians fame. Check out the trailer:

Now, this might look like regular Emilia to us, but for those fans of her that have only seen her as Daenerys and not as Emilia herself, it is a far throw from the fire queen. The film also stars Emma Thompson, who is known for her numerous roles, with Professor Terawlney from Harry Potter being one of them, and Michelle Yeoh, who was also in Crazy Rich Asians, among her other acting credits. Paul Feig is at the helm. If you find the name familiar, it’s probably because of a Wham! song by the same name. Heck, the poster also says “Featuring the music of George Michael”, and the trailer is a testament to that. What a treat!

Media outlets are reporting a release date of November 7, 2019, right in time for the holidays. The movie seems like a great pick for your holiday run. What could be better than the mother of dragons dressed channelling a cute little elf?
