HBO announces Game of Thrones complete series shadow box set

HBO recently announced that Game of Thrones will be getting itself a complete series shadow box collection. All the eight seasons of the series will be available in a 33-disc set available in a wooden shadow box package illustrated by artist Robert Ball.

To be released on December 3rd under the name Game of Thrones: The Complete Collection, the shadow box set will include a never-seen reunion of the present and past cast of the show, hosted by Conan O’Brien. The same was recently teased by Game of Thrones on YouTube:

Game of Thrones: Reunion Special, a two-part reunion show in the limited-edition Blu-Ray will have cast members from the final season including Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner and more, as well as previous season fan-favourites like Sean Bean, Jason Momoa, Mark Addy and others.

Additional bonus content included in the collection will have deleted and extended scenes from various seasons, special featurette, behind-the-scenes footage, and animated histories and lore taking the story beyond the TV show into the epic fantasy fictional world of George R.R. Martin. Moreover, the collection will have bonus content like audio commentaries and a documentary named The Last Watch in a two-part DVD set.

The shadow box set – a fine work of Robert Ball – will have a beautiful multi-layered panel representing each season of the TV series in a different layer, showcasing characters and iconic moments all leading up to the Iron Throne. The set will also have a ‘Hand of the King’ pin clasp, holding all nine custom plated disc sleeves.

Seth Rogen brutally criticized the Game of Thrones ending at San Diego Comic-Con 2019

Game of Thrones Season 8 still has fans mad, and one of those fans seems to be the coolest guy in Hollywood — Seth Rogen. As we had reported, the Game of Thrones showrunners, David Benioff and Dan Weiss had dropped out of the San Diego Comic-Con 2019 and looks like Seth took it upon himself to talk about Game of Thrones. Read on!

Speaking at SDCC 2019, Seth had blunt criticism for Game of Thrones Season 8 and the showrunners:

“I just wanna say we’re following the Game of Thrones panel, which is a f***ing nightmare, just objectively. I also know that the showrunners didn’t turn up, because they didn’t want to answer questions about the show… I’m not one of the creators of Game of Thrones, I am the creator of other TV shows, so feel free to ask me any Game of Thrones questions you might have throughout the night.”

He was asked what he thought of the ending, to which he replied:

“I imagine those guys regret making Bran the King because, ultimately, he doesn’t have the best story. [Arya] learned all that face shit, where’d it go?”

He also commented on Jaime and Cersei’s deaths, and said he would have liked it better if Jaime killed Cersei:

“I do, honestly. You don’t want to follow these people for three years and then have them die in rubble. Anti-climactic.”

Well, Rogen makes some good points. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau gets booed at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 for defending Jaime's ending

Game of Thrones Season 8 is still not done getting all the hate the fanbase thinks it deserves. Like we had reported, the fans were planning on confronting showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss at San Diego but they dropped off from the panel at the last moment. Looks like the fans voiced a bit of their displeasure anyway, booing Nikolaj Coster-Waldau instead. Read on!

As you might know, Game of Thrones had a panel at SDCC 2019, in Hall H, one last time. A few of the stars were present at the panel, including Nikolaj, who played Jaime Lannister on the show. Speaking at the panel, Nikolaj defended Jaime’s death and his return to Cersei by leaving Brienne behind, saying it made sense to him, and that it was perfect for the character. This drew in a few boos from the crowd. Check out the video:

Nikolaj just laughed it off and went on to discuss the hate that Season 8 and the ending received:

“It was surprising the level of absurdity of the online petition. Every season, we had huge controversies. From Ned Stark being killed, ‘I’m never going to watch that piece of shit show again!’ And then there was the Red Wedding. And obviously, the end. I feel so lucky to have met so may fans of the show, and to realize this show has brought so many people together. Watching it, loving it. So obviously, It comes to an end, it’s going to piss you off no matter what. It’s the end! But at the end of the day, it’s absolutely fine. If you hated the ending if you loved it, that’s great. Just don’t call people names.”

Makes sense. What do you guys think? Still mad about Season 8? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones showrunners pull out of San Diego Comic-Con 2019 panel following public backlash

Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have been under fire ever since the Season 8 plot went to a place where the fans didn’t like it going. We have seen them being Google-bombed into being the top result for “bad writers” on Google, and we have seen fans planning to boo them at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, ever since their presence at the Hall H panel for Game of Thrones was announced. Now it seems like the pair have pulled out of the panel at the last minute. Read on!

The panel was recently announced, to be held in Hall H, on 19th July, at 5.30 p.m. The confirmed attendees included Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm), John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth), Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei of Naath), Iain Glen (Ser Jorah Mormont), Conleth Hill (Varys), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), along with David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and director and executive producer Miguel Sapochnik.

A new update now says that the two showrunners will not appear, and additionally, Iain Glen, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Miguel Sapochnik seem to have also called off their appearances. The reason cited seems to be scheduling conflicts, but the fans just won’t buy it.

The fan reactions have been extreme, with most of the fanbase being mad about the fact that the showrunners are avoiding a confrontation. The panel will continue with other stars listed on the panel and is scheduled to occur in a few hours from now.

Well, what do you guys think? Should David and Dan have attended SDCC 2019 anyway? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
