Comic-Con 2014: ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 5 Unleashes Friday Panel Plans
Anyone who's ever been to a 'Game of Thrones' panel at Comic-Con well-knows that the HBO drama's production schedule prevents any new footage from being shot in time for presentation, but who would miss a chance to meet with the fan-favorite cast? Find out where and when the cast of 'Game of Thrones' season 4 (and 5!) will grace the stage at Comic-Con 2014!
While HBO has yet to provide an official announcement (still waiting on the final 'True Blood' panel, guys!), Comic-Con 2014 lists the 'Game of Thrones' panel to take place on Friday, July 25 at 1:40 P.M. in Hall H. And who will be there, you ask? Why, how about the likes of Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell/Baratheon), Rose Leslie (Ygritte), Rory McCann (Sandor "The Hound" Clegane), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), and everyone's favorite crush, Pedro Pascal (Oberyn Martell)!
Of course, not everyone from the above list will be present for season 5 of the hit HBO fantasy drama, but series creator George R.R. Martin and producers/showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss will also be on hand to discuss the fourth season and preview the fifth for 2015.
While we begin the long watch of waiting for ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5, we at least know of a multitude of new characters being cast, including those that confirm we’ll be visiting the oft-mentioned kingdom of Dorne, for which Spain location shoots will double. That said, we’ll meet fewer new characters in season 5 than in prior years, as the next cycle will prove to be something of a midpoint for the series’ run. As expected, the story will draw heavily from George R.R. Martin‘s fourth and fifth novels, ‘A Feast for Crows’ and ‘A Dance with Dragons.’
We'll be on the ground at Comic-Con 2014 to hear what the cast and crew of 'Game of Thrones' season 5 have to say, so tell us your burning questions and make your predictions for 2015 in the comments!
