Game of Thrones is a big gig for everybody involved, but the ultimate credit goes to none other than the showrunners: David Benioff and Dan Weiss. In the last few years, we have witnessed how the pair has succeeded in adapting such a complex story-line for TV, and revolutionized the whole industry while at it. Brand new information now reveals that the duo will be working on another giant franchise: Star Wars! David Benioff and Dan Weiss will write and produce a new series of Star Wars films. Read on!

The information comes from StarWars.com itself. Apparently the pair are getting a series of Star Wars films for themselves, which is separate from both the main series, and the recently-announced trilogy which will have Rian Johnson at the helm.

David and Dan released a joint statement about the announcement. It said:

“In the summer of 1977 we traveled to a galaxy far, far away, and we’ve been dreaming of it ever since. We are honored by the opportunity, a little terrified by the responsibility, and so excited to get started as soon as the final season of Game of Thrones is complete.”

Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm also talked about the announcement:

“David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today. Their command of complex characters, depth of story and richness of mythology will break new ground and boldly push Star Wars in ways I find incredibly exciting.”

Big news! Are you excited for this? We sure are! Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones Season 8 might have left us emotional, but the behind-the-scenes documentary is what really got us. Titled The Last Watch, the documentary had a lot of stuff going for it, but the best bits were the ones where several cast and crew members were shown on their last days filming for the show. Kit Harington (Jon Snow), had a particularly emotional farewell speech and even shed some tears. Read on!

“I feel like my heart is breaking,” Kit said to a crowd of cast and crew with included the showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff. He continued:

“I love this show more than I think, anything. It has never been a job for me. It’s been my life. This will always be the greatest thing I’ll ever do and be a part of. You all have been my family. I love you for it. Thank you so much.”

Dan Weiss then pronounced that Kit’s watch has ended, at which point you could see Kit get emotional. Weiss said:

“It has been a hell of a watch for us and for these people and for so many people around the world. Thank you for being Jon Snow and thank you more than that for being you.”

Well, Kit did take the show very seriously. We also learnt about how the stress of the show affected him. If you haven’t watched The Last Watch yet, we strongly recommend you do.

Game of Thrones has been our favourite show for nearly a decade, and the show ended last week. We might have loved or hated the ending, but there’s one thing we cannot deny — a lot of work was put into making the show. HBO aired the official Game of Thrones documentary, titled The Last Watch this Sunday, and it will make you appreciate all the work that went into making the final season of Game of Thrones. Read on!

The documentary has been directed by Jeanie Finlay, who spent a year on the sets of the show, gathering footage from table reads, and bits from behind the screen, interviews with the cast and crew. The official description reads:

“Game of Thrones: The Last Watch delves deep into the mud and blood to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields and car-parks of Northern Ireland. Made with unprecedented access, Game of Thrones: The Last Watch is an up-close and personal report from the trenches of production, following the crew and the cast as they contend with extreme weather, punishing deadlines and an ever-excited fandom hungry for spoilers. Much more than a ‘making of’ documentary, this is a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world — and then have to say goodbye to it.”

Some of the best bits from the documentary include the table reads of the final scenes of the show, Vladimir Furdik (The Night King) switching between his character, and stunt direction, and a bit with the famous Stark soldier, whom we have seen make a lot of appearances on the show. However, the documentary is great for its focus on the crew members toiling behind the scenes, rather than the cast.

So if you’ve been considering watching it, please do. The Last Watch will make you miss your favourite show, no matter how you felt about the ending.

About a year back, on the The Late Late Show with James Corden, Sophie Turner had showed all of us a tattoo on her arm that read, “The pack survives” with the Stark sigil, along with it.

Turns out we had a spoiler with us all along. For those of you who have seen the finale, will know what we are saying.

In the finale episode, “The Iron Throne”, Bran the Broken becomes the King of the Six Kingdoms, Sansa Stark becomes the Queen in the North, Jon Snow goes Beyond the Wall and mostly becomes The King Beyond the Wall and Arya Stark sets to fulfill her dream to become Nymeria and explore the world. Everything that each of them went through finally culminated into a bittersweet end. The promotional image of the pilot with Ned Stark on the throne almost made sense suddenly.

And turns out, Sophie Turner had already given out a major spoiler about this through her tattoo.

“It’s just a quote from last season,” Turner had said when asked about it. “Everyone figures that the pack really does survive, but it’s just a moral that I like to live by.”

She also said that some people had advised against her getting it just in case fans react to it the way they did. But she did not pay heed to it. Turner also took to Instagram after the airing of the episode.

“The pack survived,” she wrote alongside an image of herself, Williams and Hempstead Wright.
