The wait comes to an end: After months of speculation, the US broadcaster HBO has finally announced on Tuesday, when the finale of “Game of Thrones” will go on the air. The announcement was made in a dramatic video that reviews the most exciting moments of the past seven seasons.
As you know, the final of the fantasy epic will only have six episodes, but they will be extravagant and produced with a budget that has never been seen on TV so far – the eighth season’s production does not have to be behind Hollywood. Hide movies, so the full-bodied promise.
It was not until the beginning of November that the biggest battle of the series for the final had been announced. A whole episode of the last season will deal exclusively with the final battle, it said. It took 55 nights of shooting. Not only one of the characters will be in the focus of the action, but several characters are fighting for survival.
“It’s about the battle of the living against the dead, and you can not handle that in a twelve- minute sequence,” said series maker David Benioff. “It is brutal,” said Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lennister) regarding the battle. In comparison, even Battle of the Bastards, the epic battle of season six, looks like a theme park.
