If you have been keeping up with the Game of Thrones Season 8 filming news, you know that the show is now in the next leg of filming, going on in multiple locations, one of which is Seville, Spain. You might remember the Dragonpit scenes; those were filmed at the ruins of Italica, in Seville, which is where the production has returned again. We recently reported about a lot of the important stars from the show showing up here, and now we have even more. Read on!
First off, two more lead stars have shown up in Seville. First is the current Queen of Westeros, Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister.) She posted a picture with Conleth Hill, who plays the role of Lord Varys on the show, who has been in Seville with the other stars. Check it out:
Next up in town is none other than the King in the North. Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, was spotted by a fan, going into a hotel, at Seville. The video is a bit shaky, but Kit can be clearly identified. Take a look:

Moving on, we have confirmation that at least one star is still in Seville, and that is Sophie Turner, who plays the role of Sansa Stark:
Now, as we had recently reported, Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) isn’t in Seville, but was rather back in New York. She has now been spotted in France now, doing a round of promotion for her new movie, Solo:

Since the arrival of so many stars at once seemed a bit too much, everybody had been speculating that it could just be a trick by the showrunners to throw us off. We have some more proof now, that it very well could be. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), who was in Seville just a few days ago, has now been spotted at Cannes, as well:

In addition to this, one of our source has shared a really interesting piece of information with us. According to our source, multiple endings will be filmed for Game of Thrones season 8 and the source mentioned that an “Ice Throne” was brought into the studio and it will be a part of one of the endings.
We have no idea about how it is going to be used and what to expect but it feels as if an Ice Throne might be used by the Night King. Now we can’t say if the Ice Throne will be in King’s Landing or in some other location. We will share more information about it once we get more details about it.
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 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.
I think it looks like a mini cave system

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 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.
