Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen the Season 8 premiere of Game of Thrones.
Monday mornings are going to be all things Game of Thrones for the next few weeks. Not only do we, the adoring public, know it, but the talented folks in front of and behind the camera know it, too. That’s why, in addition to a bunch of accessible featurettes tacked onto the episodes themselves in order to tease new episodes, explain episodes we just saw, and highlight some powerful story moments, HBO will also be releasing episodic featurettes in a series dubbed “The Game Revealed.”
They’re not slouching on this behind-the-scenes look, either. This nearly 18-minute video goes to great lengths to show how the final season of the epic, award-winning drama came together, highlighting the talented cast and crew that put in grueling hours to make it all possible. It’s a great look at the production side of the gorgeous and cinematic series, and it also shines a spotlight on the hundreds of folks it takes to pull off such a tall task.
Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Maisie Williams, Gwendoline Christie, Peter Dinklage and more appear in this fun-filled behind-the-scenes peek, just the first of many more to come.
Check out the 18-minute featurette for Game of Thrones‘ Season 8 premiere below:
“This is the last time we’re ever going to be doing this.” The final season of Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9PM on HBO.
