Some footage might finally be seen! Not quite a trailer, but better than the now-obsolete teaser.

I'm more excited to watch this than the actual True Blood finale.

There's a rumor the guy that played the creepy caretaker (the guy with the cat) in the Harry Potter movies is going to play Lord Walder Frey. Hope it's true because that would be an excellent choice.

Looks so fucking good. Becoming more and more impressed with Addy as Robert and the Dany casting.

Sean Bean as Ned and Dinklage as Tyrion seem really good, but that's not a surprise.

Has there been any sort of inclination as to when this might hit next year?

Has anyone else viewed the 10-minute special from HBO? GRRM spoke, and for the last four years I've mistakenly pronounced "Catelyn Tully/Stark." It's "kah-teh-lin" not the "kayt-lyn" I've pronounced it in my head over the last many years. :oops:

#47 crunchb3rry

I pronounced it Kate-Lin. But George's pronunciation actually makes sense since she was referred to as "Cat" by a lot of people, primarily family and Littlefinger.

I notice some changes. Like "the Others" being called "White Walkers" now, probably because Lost used Others so much it would have been odd to hear that word so much in the dialog.

I'm kinda glad I read the books first though. Season 3 is going to blow peoples minds with one event in particular (those who read the book know what I'm talking about). And it'll be awesome if they can combine books 4 and 5, then split them up chronologically, making the show have extra value due to George having to turn one book into two because it was literally too big to bind without falling apart when people got home to read it.

It sucks though because I'm moving and won't have cable. I'll have to have somebody DVR them in HD for me.

You'll have to tune in to see. Well played, HBO. :D

I'm curious how much they've watered down some of the elements of the novels which would be considered controversial (then again, it is HBO). I noticed they aged most of the younger characters, though I suppose that's to be expected. I'd be surprised if they took out all of the

If you watch the trailer about the Targaryans they mention their marriage practices. So I'd assume that's all left in.

The incest between

is actually a plot point, so they can't reveal that in the promos.

There are 2 reasons for aging the characters. The primary concern is the taboo of underage sex. The second is that they can get older, more skilled actors to play the parts, as is the case with Bran, Rickon, Thomen, etc.

Yeah, I definitely get the reasons, I agree with the choice to make them older for sure. How old was Daenerys at the beginning of Game of Thrones? 13?

Around that age, she's a young teenager.
