HBO is celebrating 10 years of fire, ice and dragons in true ‘Khaleesi’ style.
Ten years ago, the premium cable giant launched “Game of Thrones” (GoT), which soon became an Emmy-winning, world-wide pop-culture phenomenon.
Dubbed “The Iron Anniversary,” a month-long “GoT” celebration has been planned to mark the hit fantasy series’ April 17, 2011 TV debut.
The celebration will include a library of 150 videos which will be added to US streaming subscription service HBO Max.
These will comprise of interviews with the cast, behind-the-scenes videos, along with other clips and trailers.
A new “GoT”merchandise range is also being launched, which includes a range of Mikkeller hops beverages and a set of Funko Pop figures, as well as a bespoke Fabergé egg worth £1.6 million (Dhs8m).
It has been inspired by the dragon egg seen in the series.
Co-designed by the series’ Emmy Award-winning costume designer Michele Clapton and Faberge's head designer Liisa Tallgren, the “one-of-a-kind Imperial egg” draws on Daenerys Targaryen’s incredible journey.
HBO2 will also be airing a “GoT”marathon (or “MaraThrone”), in which every episode starting from season one will be re-aired, beginning April 10.
While “Thrones”came to an end with the close of its eighth season back in May 2019, there are currently three spin-off series in the works, the first of which is called “9 Voyages.”
"Game of Thrones" is headed to Broadway, its production team announced Tuesday, with plans to bring key characters from the wildly successful cult series to the stage in 2023.
On a recent appearance on ‘The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon’ the 16-year-old actress revealed that she auditioned for a role in the HBO fantasy series for which she was rejected.
Running for just over a minute, the clip gives fans a first look at several of the characters from the series, which is set to debut on HBO Max next year.
Participating galleries reported buoyant sales, with an overall sales rate of 77 per cent. Many works with listed prices from $15,000 – $65,000 sold in the first hours of the fair.
Alira will head the jury in the talent competition category at 5:30pm as part of the day-long Filipino fest on Oct.23, which also features a pop-up market, Philippine crafts workshop and exhibit, fashion show and clothes swap.
The first meeting of the network was held at the House of Wisdom in Sharjah last year and was attended by 16 representatives from most of the Unesco-designated World Book Capital cities.
