HBO and Insight Editions will release 4 new Game of Thrones books in 2019

Game of Thrones is now less than a month away and the way insane battles have been teased, I’m getting a vibe we aren’t getting a second trailer. HBO definitely wouldn’t want to give away much of the stuff ahead of April. Though this may be a weird marketing strategy, HBO wouldn’t want fans to lose hope. This is why they recently announced Game of Thrones 2019 Publishing Program in collaboration with Insight Editions.

Some fans might wonder that this might be related to George RR Martin‘s new book in-line the Winds of Winter – the new installment to ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series. So we confirm that this is a completely new set of 4 signature books by Insights Editions to commemorate the era-defining hit television series Game of Thrones.

According to Raoul Goff, founder and publisher at Insight Editions,

“We’ve been faithful fans of Game of Thrones for many years and have enjoyed a fruitful partnership with HBO for nearly just as long…We’re thrilled to be able to participate in the grand farewell of one of the greatest TV shows ever made.”

The award-winning entertainment publisher has announced four books to be included in the program include:

  1. Game of Thrones: The Storyboards by William Simpson, lead storyboard artist for Game of Thrones.
  2. The Art of Game of Thrones 
  3. The Photography of Game of Thrones by Helen Sloan, the principal unit photographer for Game of Thrones.
  4. Game of Thrones: The Costumes by costume designer Michele Clapton.

Game of Thrones: The Storyboards

Releasing in Spring 2019, the book is priced at $60 and you can pre-0rder it right now. William Simpson has compiled a collection of behind-the-scenes pivotal moments and conceptual artworks which ultimately made their way to the TV series. This book will be a guide to all artistic developments brought about the series ranging from the Iron Throne to the newly built Dragonstone set.

The Art of Game of Thrones

Filled with gorgeous illustrations and artworks from Game of Thrones, this book gives you a picture of the amount of hard work put in together by artists who’ve worked to make the series one of a kind during its era. This book will be released at the fall of 2019 and will be available at a price of $75. Described as “a multitude of fascinating and beautifully rendered images and previously unpublished works of art”, this book is surely for you if you’re interested in finding out how thousands of artists worked hard every season for 9 years to bring life to the fictional world of Westeros to life.

The Photography of Game of Thrones

Photography on Game of Thrones is the basics Helen Sloan has been putting into series since Season 1. Every frame, the perfect angle, and clicks, the Photography of Game of Thrones drives you off to the most iconic shots and stills taken from the series. Priced at $75  and with a release date of fall of 2019, this book will give you an exclusive look at some of your favourite characters and moments with splendid detailing. According to the official press release, this book “captures in striking detail the scope and nuance of the show, celebrating a world of iconic characters, shocking moments, breathtaking locations, and much more.”

Game of Thrones: The Costumes

If you’ve been a great fan of the costumes used on Game of Thrones, then this book is truly for you. This book, priced at $75 and to be released by the fall of 2019, will feature an imminent collection of back-stage work done by artists to design the attires on Game of Thrones. From the cloaks of the North to the Crimson Red gowns Cersei Lannister wore in Game of Thrones, this book will feature beautifully detailed photographs of the costumes and behind-the-scenes details. The hard work put together by the Emmy-winning costume designer Michele Clapton has compiled in this book.

Disney confirms and reveals Kit Harington's role for Marvel Cinematic Universe's The Eternals

Game of Thrones actors seem to be making the most of the popularity that the show brought to them. The latest actor to enter a giant franchise post-Thrones is Kit Harington, aka Jon Snow. Earlier, we reported that Kit was joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but now we not only have an official confirmation but more details about his role. Read on!

As you might know, Disney is currently holding the D23 Expo, which is a showcase for its projects, especially upcoming ones. Hidden among the plethora of projects announced, mostly for Disney+, was a small casting announcement that came from MCU chief Kevin Feige. He announced Kit Harington as a cast member for MCU’s The Eternals, and Kit will be playing the role of Dane Whitman, aka the Black Knight!

The Eternals, set for release on November 6, 2020, was announced recently with a star-studded cast, which included none other than Richard Madden, who played Robb Stark on Thrones. Now Kit has joined the cast. Black Knight isn’t one of the Eternals but is a pretty important character in the comics, which means that we will see Kit’s brooding self in the MCU for a while. Looks like we might end up getting more Robb/Jon interaction through the MCU than we ever did on Game of Thrones.

What do you guys think? Excited to see the Stark brothers reunite in the MCU? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Kit Harington to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Game of Thrones starts seem to be finding themselves in all sorts new projects, but the latest rumor might be the grandest of them all. Kit Harington, who played the role of Jon Snow, is said to be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, aka the MCU. Read on!

The news, while still technically a rumor as of now, comes from a report from Deadline. Apparently sources have confirmed that Kit Harington will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He was not a part of the official announcement of the next phase of the MCU, which was revealed recently. However, with the D23 expo currently going on, a lot of new announcements are coming from Disney this week. While the report says no more details are known as of now, an official announcement might come from D23 before the end of the expo. Not to forget, Kit will be joining his ‘brother’ Richard Madden, who has been announced to be a part of MCU’s The Eternals.

Now, there is no shortage of projects in MCU to accommodate new actors, especially leads, with many of the former lead actors either moving on, or getting close to the end of their MCU stints. We could see Kit become one of the new faces of the MCU. However it’s also possible he plays one of the smaller characters or villains in one of the already announced films. For now, the fan favourite choice seems to be Adam Warlock, who was teased at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

What role would you want to see Kit play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Tell us in the comments, down below!
