Game of Thrones Season 8 Budget Is Gonna Be Huge

Long Night is Coming Game of Thrones Season 8 budget

Game of Thrones Season 8 Budget

Good news for Game of Thrones fans. Game of Thrones Season 8 budget is being discussed and according to a new report, the final six episodes will cost a whopping $15 million per episode. But wait, that’s not it. According to the buzz, the actual budget may be even bigger for each episode of Game of Thrones Season 8.

We saw amazing battle scenes in the Spoils of War and Beyond the Wall. Not to forget Jon Snow’s bonding scene with Drogon. All of these take special effects which are astronomically expensive. There were more dragon shots than ever seen before in Game of Thrones Season 6 so we can expect much more in the next season.

The final six episodes of Thrones will all reportedly be feature-length. The longest episode of the series to date, the Season 7 finale, clocked in at just shy of 80 minutes. The last season will feature more battle scenes than the last season so it’s only fair that David Benioff and D. B. Weiss demand more money per episode from HBO.

Game of Thrones Season 8 Directors Finalized

We now know that Miguel Sapochnik (of the Battle of Bastards and Hardhome fame) will be making a comeback for directing some episodes of Season 8. Miguel is not shy of putting special effects in the episodes (Talk about Giants in Hardhome and Battle of Bastards). He will have many resources at his disposal given the $15 million budget for each episode. Weiss and Benioff are going to direct the Game of Thrones finale so we may get lucky to see Nymeria and Ghost as well in the finale. 

We may also see the deadly dragon battle, Drogon vs. undead Viserion in the next season. This was confirmed by Game of Thrones Sound Designer Paula Fairfield in an interview with Vanity Fair. Game of Thrones Season 8 budget may give us shots of the direwolves, dragon shots and undead giants shots. Can’t wait for Season 8 to begin.

Tom Hopper (Dickon Tarly) Speculates Game of Thrones Ending

Dickon Tarly (Tom Hopper)

Tom Hopper who played Dickon Tarly has his own speculations on how Game of Thrones will end. He talked about two major theories about Game of Thrones Season 8.

Dickon Tarly (Tom Hopper) On How Game of Thrones Will End

We have talked about how Sam Tarly can be a central character in defeating the Night King and ending the Great War. There has been a discussion about how Sam can end up writing the history of Westeros, A Song of Ice and Fire‘. Tom Hopper supports this idea.

I like the Sam fan theory,” Tom Hopper said. “It’s that Samwell Tarly is narrating the whole thing like it’s his story.”

Ahhh..That’s interesting and quite fitting to Sam’s character played by John Bradley. I wonder if George RR Martin likes this idea.

John Bradley also offered his thoughts on this speculation after Game of Thrones Season 6. He said, “One theory is that what we’re seeing now and how we’re experiencing Game of Thrones is Sam telling the story of Game of Thrones. If you take the logic of the story now, the story of Westeros and the story of the battle for the Iron Throne, it would be a book in [the Citadel] library,” he told The Hollywood Reporter last year.

So Sam Tarly ending up writing Westeros’ history is very much likely.

Tom Hopper didn’t just stop there. He weighed in on the Valonqar prophecy of Maggy the Frog, that Cersei Lannister will be strangled to death by someone known as “the Valonqar”. In Valyrian, it translates as “little brother” or “younger sibling”. In Tom Hopper’s words, “I think Jamie is probably going to end up killing Cersei.”

We saw Jaime breaking all bonds with Cersei when he comes to know that Cersei lied to Daenerys and Tyrion about contributing Lannister bannermen to fight the Night King. We saw Jaime leaving the King’s Landing after Cersei almost killed Jaime.

Let’s see what happens in Game of Thrones Season 8. The filming of the next season begins in October.

Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen Incest May Be Even Worse

Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen are a couple that many fans adore. Even the incest is not bothersome when it comes to both of them. Jon and Dany are unaware that they are related. But Jon Snow and Daenerys could find their incestuous relationship more disturbing than one thought.

Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen Incest May Be Even Darker

Game of Thrones season seven finale confirmed that Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) are nephew and aunt, just as they slept together, a new theory may have confirmed that they’re even closer.

Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen

In the books of GRRM, Daenerys’ account of her childhood is questionable as she remembers a lemon tree where she grew up in Braavos; but lemon trees don’t grow in Braavos, they grow in Dorne.

Skeptics have speculated that the Mother of Dragons was actually lied to about her upbringing because she was taken into hiding from an early age. What’s worse, it may be possible that she was taken into hiding for the same reason as Jon Snow: she’s the daughter of Rhaeger Targaryen and not Aerys Targaryen.

Should the theory come to light in season eight, Jon Snow and Daenerys are actually brother and sister. That’s the same level of incest as that of Cersei Lannister and Jaime Lannister. Also, the infamous brother and sister Targaryen incest.

Alfie Allen Adds Fuel To The Fire

Alfie Allen who plays Theon Greyjoy said in an interview with Vulture: “You know, I asked [George] about who Jon Snow’s real parents were, and he told me. I can’t say who, but I can tell you that it involves a bit of a Luke Skywalker situation.”

Alfie, here, refers to Star Wars’ where Luke and Princess Leia awkwardly flirted for a period but later learned they were twins.

Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen

Well, that just makes their incest the true Targaryen brother sister incest. We will only know for sure when Game of Thrones Season 8 will air. The premiere date is still unknown and HBO is playing hard to avoid the leaks this time.

Why Multiple Endings For Game of Thrones Season 8? 

Game of Thrones is planning to work hard to avoid leaks for its highly anticipated eighth and final season.

Speaking at Bethlehem’s Moravian College last week, HBO programming president Casey Bloys revealed that Game of Thrones will film multiple endings for the series so even the show’s cast doesn’t know how the story will end.

I know in Game of Thrones, the ending, they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really knows what happens,” Bloys was quoted as saying. “You have to do that on a long show. Because when you’re shooting something, people know. So they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that there’s no real definitive answer until the end.”

Game of Thrones suffered multiple leaks last season, with Spoils of War being leaked by Indians. Then HBO accidentally aired its sixth episode Beyond The Wall, a few days prior to its release date. Dan Weiss even refused to tell media about their plan to prevent leaks for Game of Thrones Season 8. He replied, “We don’t even want to tell you because if we do then somebody will figure out how to circumvent the things that we’re doing.”

What Do We Know So Far About Game of Thrones Season 8 Premiere Date?

GoT is going into production in October and will debut its final season — which consists of six episodes — in either late 2018 or 2019. Comments by Casey Bloys can be found here.

The thought of Game of Thrones Season 8 multiple endings is interesting. Leave your comments on what those endings may look like. Will Cersei die and Jon Snow/Daenerys will rule Westeros? Will the Night King be defeated? Or would the Night King destroy everything? Who will survive the Great War in the end? So many questions and on top of that even the actors won’t know. So maybe there will be multiple leaks for each possible ending? Only time will tell.

Game of Thrones Season 8 Spoilers: Dothraki To Play A Major Role?

Incoming – Game of Thrones Season 8 spoilers –  A photo purporting to be from the set of Game of Thrones season eight at the Titanic Studios in Belfast appears to show a huge Dothraki hut, suggesting that the Dothraki screamers will have a big part to play in the final series.

Sources of the newspaper, Los Sieto Reinos, say that they got a rather curious photo of a mysterious Dothraki hut as well as information about it. The hut in the image was on set with two other similar structures – one of which was reportedly “much larger” than the other two. So three Dothraki huts – interesting.

Dothraki Hut in Vaes Dothrak. Similar hut spotted on Game of Thrones Season 8 set in Titanic Studios in Belfast.

We all know that Daenerys is sailing towards Winterfell With Jon Snow.

In Game of Thrones Season 7 finale, Jon Snow says, “If we have the Dothraki ride hard on the kingsroad, they’ll arrive at Winterfell within the fortnight. And the Unsullied? We can sail with them to White Harbor, meet the Dothraki here on the kingsroad, then ride together to Winterfell.”

So may be those huts are for the scenes to show Dothraki camped on the kingsroad or near the white harbor. Or somewhere outside the Winterfell castle as the castle can’t hold 40,000 Dothraki screamers. It will interesting to see Dothraki in action. We have all seen how they can stand on their horses and shoot arrows in the loot train battle.

Stay tuned for more Game of Thrones Season 8 spoilers. The show’s producers are reportedly considering a plan to begin filming Game Of Thrones season 8 in October 2017, with production set to carry through all the way until August 2018. This could delay the episodes’ air date until 2019.

 HBO programming boss Casey Bloys said: “Our production people are trying to figure out a timeline for the shoot and how much time the special effects take. The shooting is complicated enough — on different continents, with all the technical aspects — and the special effects are a whole other production period that we’re trying to figure out. That is a big factor in all of this.”

Some Predictions On What Can Happen In Game of Thrones Season 8

This post contains possible Game of Thrones Season 8 spoilers

Game of Thrones Season 7 finale ended with a bang. It hit several important moments and left us wondering what to expect in Game of Thrones Season 8. Here are some theories and spoilers on what can happen in Season 8. 

Game of Thrones Season 8 Spoilers – Major Hints

Daenerys and Jon Will Have A Baby

Game of Thrones finale revealed some significant Game of Thrones Season 8 spoilers. We kept on hearing from Dany that she can’t have children in Game of Thrones Season 7. Mirri Maz Duur, the witch who killed Khal Drogo prophesied that Daenerys can’t have kids. But Game of Thrones has done this to us in the past. They build a narrative to make viewers believe that something cannot happen but then that thing actually happens and then everyone is like WHATTTTT!!

Game of Thrones Season 8 Spoilers

Jon Snow Daenerys Sex Scene

We saw Jon and Daenerys having sex in Game of Thrones finale and I am pretty sure their hot sex made a baby already.

Samwell Tarly Will Find Out The Way To End The Great War

Samwell Tarly has been the most intelligent man in the show so far. He found the Dragonglass and the horn at the Fist of The First Men. He killed a white walker with dragonglass. He found out that dragonglass is sitting at Dragonstone. He and Gilly found out that Jon Snow is Aegon Targaryen. He cured Jorah of greyscale.

Samwell Tarly and Gilly at the Citadel

It is most likely that Samwell will help Brandon Stark, Jon Snow and Daenerys to defeat the Night King. Perhaps Sam will find out a way from his Citadel scrolls and books.

Jaime Lannister Will Kill Cersei

We saw Jaime Lannister heading to the north in the season 7 finale.

Game of Thrones Season 8 Spoilers

Jaime Lannister Leaving Kings Landing

We saw Cersei announcing her pregnancy to Jaime. According to Cersei’s prophecy by Maggy the Frog, Cersei will only have 3 children and they will all die. Well, Cersei’s 3 kids are already dead so there is a great chance that she will miscarry her fourth child with Jaime. But we know how wicked Cersei is. She may eventually use Jaime under the false pretense of still being pregnant after miscarrying the baby. Or Cersei may do something worse than that which may be the breaking point for Jaime. May be Jaime will fulfill Valonqar prophecy of Maggy the Frog, that Cersei will be strangled to death by someone known as “the Valonqar”. In Valyrian, it translates as “little brother” or “younger sibling”.

The Night King Will Destroy The Iron Throne

Game of Thrones Season 8 Spoilers

Daenerys Visits The Throne Room in the King’s Landing When She Visits House of the Undying

When Daenerys visited House of the Undying, she had a vision of the throne room in King’s Landing. The roof was all broken and snow was pouring in. We already saw snow hitting King’s Landing in Season 7 finale. This is perhaps an indication that the Night King and his army of the dead will reach King’s Landing and destroy the throne room and Iron Throne.

Daenerys Will Die in Game of Thrones Season 8 Finale

In Daenerys’s second vision upon visiting House of The Undying, she goes beyond the wall where she has already been now to save Jon and others in season 7 from the Night King. In the earlier vision, she doesn’t touch the Iron Throne but moves on to go beyond the wall. This may be an indication that she will never sit on the Iron Throne. Her purpose maybe just to save Westeros and end the long night by sacrificing herself.

Game of Thrones Season 8 Spoilers

Daenerys with Khal Drogo and Rhaego in the House of the Undying

In her final vision she visits a tent where she finds Khal Drogo and her son Rhaego who died in season 1. She says to the Khal that maybe she is already dead and she just doesn’t know yet. This maybe the destiny of Daenerys to die and ultimately unite with her dead husband and son. That will be tragic but may be that is the bitter sweet ending that D&D and GRRM refer to. Maybe Jon Snow is Azor Ahai and he may have to sacrifice Daenerys, his true love to take the Night King down for good.

Sansa Stark Will Die

Game of Thrones Season 8 Spoilers

Sansa Stark – Lady of Winterfell

Sansa Stark’s storyline has revolved around the villains in Game of Thrones including Joffrey Baratheon, Ramsay Bolton and Petry Baelish aka Littlefinger. They are all dead now. Sansa always wanted to be a lady and she is now the Lady of Winterfell in the absence of Jon Snow, the King in the North. Sansa may play a role in taking down Cersei for good as she understands Cersei and has learnt quite a bit from her. Other than that, I would say her storyline is pretty much done and she may die in Game of Thrones season 8.

Democratic Coalition in Westeros

Game of Thrones Season 8 Spoilers

Tyrion and Daenerys in Beyond The Wall

One of the major Game of Thrones Season 8 spoilers was revealed by Tyrion Lannister in Season 7. Tyrion talked about choosing a successor for Daenerys Targaryen in the episode Beyond The Wall. That maybe another crucial moment in Game of Thrones Season 8 where the people of Westeros may democratically choose their leader after the long night ends.
