Watch This Explanatory 22-Minute ‘Game of Thrones’ Featurette
This lengthy feaurette will do a nice job prepping you for the second season premiere of Game of Thrones, which is oh so close to us. Actors, writers, producers — they’re all there to discuss the themes and beats of the first season, and what makes the world of Westeros such an exciting place to explore. You may not learn a lot if you’ve seen every episode, but the last five minutes do directly address the new season’s developments. And if you you’re a Thrones virgin, it’s an excellent little primer to explain the series without spoiling too much. Watch it after the click, via Vulture.
What’s interesting is that the show’s producers said that it won’t be an exact book-to-book adaptation. Instead, it’ll interpret the entire breadth of the series in a new way, so the pieces fit together a little better (because seriously, George R. R. Martin overwrites a lot). Sounds great! Game of Thrones is back in nine days, isn’t that just the best?
