How many weeks did it take to shoot the epic battle in episode 3? Why does the parade into Winterfell look so eerily familiar in episode 1? What does it take to design a set that is ultimately going to be completely destroyed (as in the King’s Landing set for episode 5)? You’ll find the answers to these questions and those you haven’t even thought of asking in the HBO documentary series Game of Thrones: Behind the Scenes.
*Update: The full boxset of Game of Thrones S1-8 is ready to be binge-watched on Showmax.*
In this documentary series, we get insider info of two different varieties on what it took to make Season 8.
Inside the Episode clips are interviews with showrunners DB Weiss and David Benioff, where they share their intimate knowledge of the Game of Thrones characters – where they’ve been and how they’ve got to where we find them now.
Game Revealed clips are longer, and give a fascinating view of how each episode of Season 8 was made from the points of view of the cast and crew.
All in all, you’ll be able to stream episodes 1 to 5 of Game of Thrones: Behind the Scenes in 167 minutes – easy game, especially in the weekend ahead of the grand finale, which comes to DStv Now on Monday, 20 May at 03:00 and again at 22:00, which is when it will also land on Showmax.
