Game of Thrones is dubbed as the greatest show of the 21st century by many, and is easily recognizable as a pop culture icon. The show keeps getting referenced in all walks of life, including sports, politics, movies etc. Recently, Warner Bros’ Space Jam: A New Legacy paid a beautiful homage to several of HBO’s classics, including Game of Thrones. However, an important and really interesting scene from the movie was cut out, that would have strengthened the bond between Space Jam and Game of Thrones.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Space Jam 2 costume designer Melissa Bruning talked about the gruelling process of making costumes for the movie. “It was probably the most challenging project I’ve ever done,” she said.

The costume team worked furiously to create the new uniforms. “We just literally had to have somebody [stand] over a machine that printed [the uniforms] out,” she explained. One costume that was made didn’t make it into the film though: a Game of Thrones-style suit of armour. “I cried a little inside that that didn’t make it in,” says Bruning.

If LeBron had worn the Westerosi armour, it might have helped the film make a few more millions. Instead, we had Foghorn Leghorn living in the Game of Thrones world with Targaryen-style hair, riding a dragon and shouting “Winter is coming!”
