Game of Thrones concludes filming on biggest battle scene ever


Game of Thrones finished filming a colossal battle scene after 55 consecutive days of shooting.

What is the best thing about Game of Thrones?

Some may say, Jon Snow. Other may say its unpredictability. But there is no denying that the one thing everyone loves about the series is the battles.

More from Game of Thrones

You have the Battle of the Blackwater during Season 2 that gave us our first glimpse of wildfire. Then there was the Battle of Castle Black during season 4, which pitted wildlings against the Night’s Watch, and freaking Ollie kills Ygritte.

The following season brought us Hardhome when Jon and his men get their first look at white walkers and the Night King. And how can anyone forget the crowning jewel of the entire series, the Battle of the Bastards?

Last season upped the ante when they introduced dragons into battle sequences with one major casualty. (R.I.P Viserion!)

So, finding out that the Game of Thrones crew was using two different locations for one battle, I think it can only mean one thing: the Season 8 battle is going to be the biggest and most badass of them all!

According to Watchers on the Wall, filming finally wrapped on the most extensive battle sequence in Game of Thrones history after 55 straight nights of shooting. And I bet that this was done for the battle of all battles, the battle against the Night King.

To thank all who tirelessly worked on the shoot, producers gave crew members a note thanking them for their hard work:

"“For enduring the cold, the snow, the rain, the mud, the sheep shit of Toome and the winds of Magheramorne. When tens of millions of people around the world watch this episode a year from now, they won’t know how hard you worked. They won’t care how tired you were or how tough it was to do your job in sub-freezing temperatures. They’ll just understand that they’re watching something that’s never been done before.”"

Fifty-five nights in a row tells me David Benioff, and D.B. Weiss want to get it right for the fans, and I’m here for it. I’m cool with waiting a year for perfection. While I don’t know about you, but I am hype for what’s to come.

Game of Thrones will return for its final season sometime in 2019.
