'Game of Thrones' jumped through time a bit in its fourth season premiere "Two Swords" to the point where Daenerys' dragons have grown big enough to pick off sheep, but if George R.R. Martin has anything to say about it, the winged fire-breathers will be half the size of Winterfell by the time the series ends. See for yourself, with Martin-approved artwork of full-grown 'Game of Thrones' dragons!
HBO's 'Game of Thrones' adaptation recently surprised fans with the likelihood it would wrap up the series after 7, potentially 8 seasons, regardless of whether or not creator George R.R. Martin had finished the literary source material. Now, with the 'Game of Thrones' season 4 premiere looming over all of us, Martin says active discussions have begun for a 'Game of Thrones' movie to wrap up the series, or perhaps tell additional Westeros tales.
Last week 'South Park' took us by surprise in crafting a 'Game of Thrones' parody wrapped around the concept of "Black Friday," but not so surprising as to learn that the story will continue in a second episode! Watch what happens when Butters takes his 'Game of Thrones' grievances to George R.R. Martin himself in the first clip from "A Song of Ass and Fire!"
'Game of Thrones' year-long wait in between seasons felt even more heart-rending this past season, following the portrayal of the infamous "Red Wedding" event that forever altered the violence level and storytelling of the series. And while everything we've seen of season 4 thus far suggests that the story will cull from multiple sections of George R.R. Martin's ongoing narrative, the author himself assures fans another famous wedding will get its due next season.
Whereas 'Game of Thrones' saw fit to release its mammoth cast and character list at Comic-Con last year, season 4 has taken a much more measured approach to revealing its new additions. Case in point, 'Sherlock' star and producer Mark Gatiss was announced for an upcoming role back in mid-July, but only now have details of the actor's role in season 4 come to light. So which of George R.R. Martin's characters will Gatiss bring to light?
'Game of Thrones' left many a fan, especially those who were unfamiliar with the original George R.R. Martin novels, in tears over the bloody mess of the "Red Wedding." But that is just the tip of the iceberg. The hit HBO series dropped by Comic-Con 2013's Hall H stage to talk up the past season and what's coming next.
HBO's monster-hit 'Game of Thrones' adaptation has made plenty of changes both small and large in bringing George R.R. Martin's "Song of Ice and Fire" novels to the screen, more often than not streamlining stories and designs. Daario Naharis may not have gotten his blue beard this season, but Martin's original vision for the iconic Iron Throne of the series and HBO's stark (heh) redesign will definitely surprise you.
HBO's 'Game of Thrones' has yet to formally announce its Comic-Con 2013 plans, as we had previously expected the major season 4 cast to be revealed during the panel, but it seems the producers just couldn't wait to get the excitement going. Chilean actor Pedro Pascal will join the series in season 4, portraying the fan-favorite role of Prince Oberyn "The Red Viper" Martell!
