For all the Game of Throne fans all around the world its quite a big news, as the social media post reveals the biggest detail of upcoming final season of the series, that it will include a battle sequence that took 55 days to film, that is approximately two months of nonstop shooting. One can assume it’s going to be an epic spectacle in for any TV series in history.
As war and battle scenes are the hardest to shoot and require a handsome budget. Director Miguel Sapochnik was brought back by HBO to shoot this battle scene. This season 8 has budget of 90 million dollars for its 6 episodes. One can imagine the scale of film shooting. Quinlan says it all, ”55 consecutive nights, 11 weeks, 3 locations. You’ll never again see anything like it”
Previously battle of the bastards, in season 6, took 25 days to shoot.
The second thing revealed in the post is the final season might be dropping as soon as April 2019. Buried in the middle of what appears to be a thank you note to cast and crew, there’s a line asking its reader to imagine how audiences will feel when they finally get a chance to watch this episode “a year from now.” The winter is on its way next year in April.
