‘Game of Thrones’ Season 2 Animated Short Reveals “Wildfire” Origin

Game of Thrones Season 2 Blu Ray Wildfire
HBO

While fans continue languishing under the wait for ‘Game of Thrones‘ season 3′s March 31 premiere, at least we’ll have plenty of time to catch up when the acclaimed HBO drama puts out its second season Blu-ray and DVD February 19! No doubt one of the most exciting parts will be re-living the climactic George R.R. Martin-penned “Blackwater,” particularly its rousing effects and epic battles. But for those not so well-versed in the books, how would you like to learn the secret origins of the hell-blazing “wildfire?” A new animated short from the DVD release will give you the exclusive ‘Game of Thrones’ scoop inside!

For all the many character moments and epic conflicts of ‘Game of Thrones’ season 2, fans will no doubt list “Blackwater” among their favorite episodes and moments of the season. We remember watching in awe as a massive green explosion decimated Stannis Baratheon’s fleet, but just how did the mystical green blaze work anyway?

While we’ve seen the effects behind the explosion, a new short from the ‘Game of Thrones’ season 2 Blu-ray release reveals the historical significance of “wildfire,” as told by pyromancer Hallyne (Roy Dotrice). The animated short also explains a bit of the history behind previous kings, otherwise chronicled in George R.R. Martin’s actual novels.

So while we wait for ‘Game of Thrones’ season 3, check out an awesome animated short from the February 19 season 2 release, and tell us what you want to see most from ‘Game of Thrones’ season 3 in the comments!
