‘Game of Thrones’ Season 3: New Art Direction Feature Offers First Look
It’s been a good week for ‘Game of Thrones‘ fans, what with HBO announcing that extended run-times for its season 3 episodes would nearly add up to another full episode, and fans soon having the ability to toast that news with a ‘Game of Thrones’ inspired beer. Now, as we wait for the March 31 premiere of HBO’s George R.R. Martin-adapted fantasy drama, how would you like a peek at new characters and sets from the coming season? The Red Keep awaits you inside!
‘Game of Thrones’ would never work half as well as it does without the aid of some pretty incredible production design and art direction. The combined efforts of the crew create a stunning and fully-realized Westeros, one which will take us even deeper into this new world in the coming season.
To that end, HBO has released a new production featurette detailing new designs for the season, which affords viewers their first looks at Jojen Reed (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), a new courtyard attached to the “Red Keep,” and sneak peeks of a few epic battles to come!
It all leads up to the March 31 premiere of the new season, which adapts at least half of Martin’s novel “A Storm of Swords,” and features cast additions Ed Skrein, Jacob Anderson, Ciaran Hinds, Diana Rigg, Mackenzie Crook, Clive Russell, Nathalie Emannuel, Iwan Rheon, Kerry Ingram, Tara Fitzgerald, Paul Kaye, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ellie Kendrick, Richard Dormer, Kristofer Hivju, Philip McGinley, Tobias Menzies, Anton Lesser, and even Coldplay drummer Will Champion.
