With the season premiere of Game of Thrones less than a week away, HBO has continued their marketing onslaught by releasing a new promo and a new featurette. The promo once again reminds us that the dragons are going to be a big factor in the new season, and as for the featurette, I highly encourage you to watch it. It goes into detail about creating the world of the Wildlings, and the amount of effort and detail that makes the world come alive. You probably won’t notice these details when watching the show, but subconsciously they make the world believable. This is the case for all of the settings on the series, but showing the technical work in creating the life beyond The Wall is a fine example of how the show’s technical departments work their magic. The featurette also devotes time to new character Mance Rayder (played by the great Ciaran Hinds).
Hit the jump to check out the promo and the featurette. Also, be sure to check out Allison’s recap of Season Two. Game of Thrones premieres on March 31st at 9/8c.
