Game of Thrones season 6 finale preview Winds of WInter

Game of Thrones season 6 episode 9, Battle of the Bastards lived up to it’s hype and it was a ripper! The death toll in the episode was unprecedented and we got to see some raw action and scenes that made us scream and an ending that involved Ramsay Bolton’s death was brutal and it was a fitting end for him. Overall it was the best episode of the season and one of the best till date. The battle choreography was simply incredible and watching it made you smile with satisfaction. The episode ended on a happy note with the Stark banner on the walls of Winterfell once again and Daenerys made an alliance with Yara and Theon and she’s coming back to Westeros!

However, this is Game of Thrones and the characters still can’t heave a sigh of relief and take rest. HBO has released the preview for the season 6 finale and the center of all the action shifts back to King’s Landing. Cersei is getting ready for her trial and so is Loras Tyrell. He hardly had any role in this season and finally we will get to see him during the trial. The scene is followed by a scene in which we can see a White Raven flying. For those who don’t know, the Archmaesters from Oldtown send out White Ravens to indicate the arrival of Winter. The title of the next episode is Winds of Winter and now we know why. Jon and Sansa might have taken back Winterfell but the danger beyond the Wall still exists and that’s the biggest threat to Westeros at the moment.

We are also taken to the Twins where the Freys are celebrating with the Lannisters and we get to hear the famous line from the Red Wedding once again when Walder Frey modifies it a bit while saying, “The Freys and the Lannisters send their regards.” It will be interesting to see what happens at the Twins. Will we get to see Arya striking some names off her list as she’s finally coming back to Westeros and Walder Frey is on the list and why is Jaime still in the Riverlands? We thought that he was in a hurry to be with Cersei.

Back at Winterfell Petyr Baelish tells Sansa that thought that she knew what he wanted and it really seemed creepy and Davos confronts Melisandre in front of Jon Snow, demanding her to tell Jon what she did with Shireen. It is going to be one emotionally packed scene. We also get to see a glimpse of Bran and we are happy to see him again as we were wondering where he disappeared after being rescued by Benjen. We hope that we will get to see more of Bran and the White Walkers in the episode. Afterall the episode is titled Winter is Coming and what better to indicate that than the White Walkers at the doorsteps of Westeros.

The preview ends with Tyrion giving Daenerys advice, telling her that she’s in the great game now and it is terrifying. Take a look at the preview of the next episode below,

Game of Thrones Fans recreate Westeros in Minecraft

Innovative minds can be found in the most unexpected of places. The motivation to build something different often arises from an idea one loves dearly. Minecraft is one of the most popular games currently, where you can show off your creative ideas. One particular Minecraft server, Westeroscraft, is dedicated to building stuff related to the world of Game of Thrones. After months of hard work, they have finally managed to create their own Westeros inside the game. And it seriously looks amazing!

Below you’ll find a selection of recent tweets from Westeroscraft, providing some great images and explanations of what is being shown:

The official Westeroscraft Twitter account shared yet another screenshot of the work-in-progress Westeroscraft server. There, Minecraft fans who love A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of Thrones are recreating Westeros block by block, and the results are truly impressive as the images and videos linked at their official wiki show. We can’t imagine how many hours of work have gone into it!

Last week, One particular Game of Thrones fan created one of the most amazing dioramas of a medieval mini-alley in their bookshelf. It was like peering right into Westeros.

Would you like to play or create something on this Minecraft server? Tell us what you’d like to build or add in the comments below!

That Time When George Lucas Visited the set of Game of Thrones

Fantasy has always been everyone’s favourite mode of escape from problems of real life. Be it the vastness of space or the mystical land of dragons, they have kept fans hooked for decades. George Lucas, the man responsible for making Star Wars a household name, celebrated his 77th birthday on 14th this month. And he himself is a great fan of fantastical worlds, as evident from his great love for Game of Thrones. He once visited the set of the highly popular TV show during the filming of the 8th season.

He could have [made a cameo], with the beard!” joked Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth). “That’s not a bad idea. We should have stuck him in.” It was surely a fun experience, having this cinema icon on the set of a show that had become pretty iconic himself. Game of Thrones writer Bryan Cogman made sure to get a picture with George, and shared it on his birthday.

George Lucas has a history of showing up on various film and TV sets, whether they’re related to something he created or not. But one thing is for sure, the universe he created and his legacy will entertain the audience for generations to come.

The Star Wars creator deserves all our praise for the amazing world he has created. Send in your best wishes for George in the comments below!

Locals capture first glimpse of a Stand-in for a Dragon on House of The Dragon set

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has created a huge hype amongst fantasy lovers. HBO is leaving no stones unturned in the marketing of the fantasy series. In the last few days, they’ve released several photos of some of the key characters in costume. The locals at Cornwall have done their part as well, leaking a few pictures of the filming every now and then. However, it is a well-known fact fans are the most hyped up about one expected element – the Targaryen dragons. The show promises to provide the audience with a larger number of dragons, and we can’t wait to see them all.

Last week, locals at Cornwall spotted the crew filming at one of the sites. And it seemed a lot like a stand-in for one of the dragons. It looked a lot similar to how dragons were filmed in crucial scenes on Game of Thrones. Check it out yourself!

Game of Thrones actors had to use a lot of imagination when it came to acting alongside the dragons. Picture yourself acting in front of someone waving a ball on a stick at you pretending it is a fearsome flying fire-breathing dragon.

House of the Dragon will have a lot of dragons, far more than Game of Thrones. Which dragon do you think they are filming in the Tweet? Talk to us in the comments below!
