Game of Thrones: Long Story Short Featurette

Game of Thrones - Long Story Short

HBO has released a new featurette for Game of Thrones.

The “Long Story Short” featurette is narrated by Charles Dance. It humorously tells the tale of how producers and writers David Benioff and Dan Weiss came to adapt George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels into the Game of Thrones television series.

The featurette also shows off some fan art and lets you know exactly what goes into creating a season of Game of Thrones for HBO.

In Game of Thrones Season 4, Encouraged by the Red Wedding slaughter in the Riverlands that wiped out many of their Stark nemeses, the Lannisters’ hold on the Iron Throne remains intact … but can they survive their own egos, as well as new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east? While an unbowed Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army in Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell, the Lannister-loathing “Red Viper of Dorne,” arrives at King’s Landing to attend Joffrey’s wedding to Margaery Tyrell, and perhaps act on an ulterior agenda. In the north, a depleted Night’s Watch seems overmatched against the inexorable Wall advances of Mance Rayder’s army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even more formidable foe: the undead White Walkers. As if that weren’t enough, Daenerys Targaryen, accompanied by her menacing trio of dragons and army of Unsullied, is poised to liberate Meereen, the largest city in Slaver’s Bay, which could ultimately provide her with enough ships to sail to Westeros and reclaim the Iron Throne.

Game of Thrones Season 4 premieres on HBO April 6.
