Game of Thrones: shooting begins for the Bloodmoon prequel

Westeros is not going to close. A few days before the final episode of Game of Thrones, The Sun announces that the filming of the prequel has begun in Belfast.

Dry your tears, we will return soon to Westeros. Announced last year, a prequel to Game of Thrones launches its production, according to The Sun. The English tabloid says filming began two weeks ago in Belfast. A source states, “Those who work on the set talk about Bloodmoon. The producers have assembled a star cast and announce that Game of Thrones fans will absolutely want to see the show.”

The scenario will take place hundreds of years before Game of Thrones, in a very different world. The rumor speaks of a story that would revolve around a long winter of several decades, which launched the war between humans and white walkers.

The origins of white walkers

As many had predicted, to know the answers to our questions, it is on the spin-off side that we will have to look. Scheduled for 2020, the series should focus on the origins of white walkers and will follow the children of the forest. It seems that the lack of explanation after the Battle of Winterfell finally has an answer. If the two writers of Game of Thrones, have not chosen to explore these origins, Bloodmoon should bring his share of answers on the motives of the King of the Night.

Naomi Watts in the lead role

Naomi Watts is announced in the lead role alongside Georgie Henley ( The Chronicles of Narnia ), Jamie Campbell Bower ( Twilight 5) and Toby Regbo, who plays King Francis II in the Reign series. In writing, HBO finds the cream of the crop since the chain calls on Jane Goldman. The screenwriter has already worked on several box office hits like Kingsman or Kick-Ass. George RR Martin will not be very far either since as for the flagship HBO series, he will participate in the development.

Meanwhile, Game of Thrones ends after eight seasons of the battle for the crown, the outcome has never been closer than was expected.
