Game of Thrones films a scene beyond the Wall and more season 7 spoilers drop

SPOILER ALERT! The following post has Season 7 spoilers, consider yourself warned! As some of you might already be aware, Game of Thrones is currently being shot in Spain. Cast members have been spotted on shoot locations, giving us an idea of where the show might be heading.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) and James Faulkner (Randyll Tarly) are filming in Cáceres, which isn’t really new information, considering the fact that we already know that there will be a battle sequence involving the Lannisters and the Tyrells. We have also heard rumors about Daenerys dropping in the way of the Lannisters, with her Dothraki army. The presence of Jacob Anderson in Cáceres indicates that even the Unsullied might be a part of the ambush or it can also be possible that he is filming different scenes over there.

Next up in the list of characters set to stage an interesting return, is Jorah Mormont. As we all know, in Season 6, Daenerys ordered Jorah to find a cure for his Greyscale. Iain Glen (Jorah) and Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) have been seen on set together, so it is safe to assume that Jorah succeeds in his quest. There are some speculations as to how he does this, with one theory pointing to his travel to Oldtown, where he will possibly run into Samwell Tarly, who has been shown to be there at the end of the last season, to train to become a Maester. It’s being said that Samwell will help him with the cure since Jorah is the son of his former Lord Commander during his time on the Wall. We had recently reported that Iain Glen was filming scenes where his entire body was covered with Greyscale. So it is quite possible that it is Samwell who cures Jorah.

An ill-fated character returns and major spoilers from Game of Thrones season 7 filming in Spain

Game of Thrones fan site, Watchers on the Wall, also reported about a new set near Belfast. Set at the Wolf Hall Quarry, the set has a green screen near a frozen lake, with an island in it. It has been further said that the set will be used to film a sequence having 300 Wights, and will be used for three weeks worth of filming. We are already excited!

Watchers on the Wall has also talked about how things will be in Winterfell, according to their sources. The remaining Stark siblings, Arya, Sansa, and Bran, will all reunite. After the initial excitement of reunion, it has been said that there will be a bit of a hostile feeling between Arya and Sansa, due to the contrast of the ways their personalities have developed since they last met. Littlefinger has been said to try and use this rift, and widen it even further, because, well, Littlefinger.

Finally, we have some information on Cersei. Lena Headey, who plays Cersei, has been previously confirmed to be filming in Seville. TMZ reports that a note they have obtained is detrimental of how long we will see Cersei in Season 7. The note is addressed to Headey, and comes from Bernadette Caulfield, the executive producer of the series. It reads as below :

This is a notification to confirm that you must be available in November and December 2016 for filming and throughout January 2017 for possible additional scenes and pick-ups.

As you are well aware, we are shooting through February 2017. Hopefully you will not be required past January 31st.

The note probably reached TMZ because Headey submitted it to the court, over the custody case of her son Wylie, with ex-husband Peter Lougrhan, who resides in the United States. Headey is allowed to keep her son with her in the UK while she is filming, and thus she submitted this note to prove that she will be filming for a little while longer. The note says that Headey will be shooting till the end of January, which has to mean that Cersei will continue to hold her own, in Season 7, for quite some while.

That’s all for now! What do you think of these spoilers? Talk to us in the comments, below!

A Weirdwood tree has popped up on the sets of Game of Thrones prequel, Bloodmoon

Game of Thrones prequel series Bloodmoon was ordered by HBO for a pilot, which means that the show is now filming, even though it’s for just one episode. Now, we have previously reported about the show’s ongoing filming, but today we have a familiar development on the sets. Read on!

As you might know, Bloodmoon is filming in Northern Ireland, as we expected it to. We also recently talked about the show’s simultaneous filming at Gaeta, Italy, and how we could have gotten what is possibly the first look at Naomi Watts in her character costume. There was another confirmation of her presence at the Italy shoots:

Moving back to the Northern Ireland sets, we have a bigger development. The sets we have seen till now have mostly looked like parts of a big cave rig, and now a Weirwood tree has popped up on the sets:

We knew the Children of the Forest were going to be a part of the storyline, so as such it’s not a surprise to see a Weirwood tree pop up. What do you guys think? Excited yet? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones prequel Bloodmoon is filming in Italy

Game of Thrones finally ended after an almost decade long run, and HBO isn’t wasting any time. The first approved prequel series to the show had begun the early stages of production recently, with the working title of ‘Bloodmoon‘. The show had begun filming in Northern Ireland, but reports are now saying that the show is also filming in Italy. Read on!

The official source for Game of Thrones news, Entertainment Weekly revealed that the filming on the pilot episode of the Game of Thrones prequel, Bloodmoon, has “quietly begun” in Northern Ireland. We also had some exclusive pictures of the locations being prepared for filming. Now, filming news for the show is coming from the Italian town of Gaeta, at Grotta del Turco, where the prequel is filming, according to local news outlet Il Messaggero:

The place matches what we have seen in Northern Ireland, where the filming will be in cave-like environments. A cave rig has also been built at the Titanic Studios at Belfast.

This is the first time for Westeros to find a location in Italy, with Spain being the closest it ever got.

In case you don’t remember, the prequel is helmed by Jane Goldman, along with George R. R. Martin. S. J. Clarkson has been hired to direct the pilot. The show has an ensemble cast starring Naomi Watts, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Miranda Richardson, Josh Whitehouse, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah, Alex Sharp and Toby Regbo.

The pilot will decide whether the show gets picked up for full production. Bloodmoon is expected to air in late 2020 or early 2021. We’ll be updating you about the prequel as it progresses.

Game of Thrones prequel update: new logos on signboards, filming in Marble Arch Cave, and more

Game of Thrones ended but has opened up new possibilities for the prequel series with the working title ‘Bloodmoon‘ whose pilot filming is under progress. While the last week we reported the cast and crew members gathering in Belfast for filming, today we bring you more new updates regarding the production of the new series, featuring some exclusive images.

First of all, for the ones who are already familiar with the ‘pink’ signboards Game of Thrones originally used for guiding the cast members to the filming locations, new signboards have emerged in Belfast this time orange in colour and with a new logo of mammoths. We’ve already seen a mammoth in the Wildling Army during the episode ‘The Watchers on the Wall’ in Season 4, and this logo suggests that we will definitely see more of them in the new series. Take a look:

Secondly, the Marble Arch Caves of Northern Ireland will reportedly remain closed for the filming of the prequel. Here are some of the photos:

Titanic Studies of Northern Ireland, Belfast serve as a prime location for the filming of Game of Thrones. While construction around the set was evident the last month, more and more set pieces have started in and around similar to what we saw for Season 8 of Game of Thrones, while it was under production. Here are a few photos:

Lastly, a source reported sightings of the crew and a few vanity vans around the Antrim Coast of Northern Ireland. It looks like Antrim Coast will also serve as a major filming location for the ‘Bloodmoon’ TV series. Check out these photos:

As months pass and we approach towards the end of the year, more and more updates on the filming and the cast and the crew will surely surface. Yet these quick updates are surely an easy way to get through what some fans weren’t expecting from the final season of Game of Thrones. We really hope the ‘Bloodmoon’ requel series lives up to the hype.
