The ‘Game of Thrones’ mania and the nostalgia after the final season is done airing doesn’t seem to be prepared to die out anytime sooner. As if this being the final season of ‘Game of Thrones’ ever wasn’t enough, the makers of the show and HBO have announced an official 2-hour documentary that will be closing out the final season, extensively going behind the final season and its shooting in tough and demanding conditions. The series will also encompass what the journey has been about for makers, for the actors, and the entire cast and crew of currently the biggest show on the planet.
While I believe the ‘Game of Thrones’ prequel spinoff series will be the show’s attempt to keep things going, banking on the success of something so unprecedentedly big, after GoT departs with a hearty farewell, ‘The Last Watch’ documentary will simply be the makers’ way of saying a well-earned goodbye to the fans that have invested years in this series, practically living through with all the wars, twists, turns, deaths, character victories, and entire houses in the saga being born an destroyed in an instant. Looking back, it has been a turbulent and emotional journey, an epic one, and the documentary will charter all that and more as a befitting farewell to a revered television phenomenon.[SPOILERS] Ahead
What is the GOT Documentary About?
According to HBO, “the two-hour documentary Game of Thrones: The Last Watch delves deep into the mud and blood to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields and car-parks of Northern Ireland.Made with unprecedented access, The Last Watch is an up-close and personal report from the trenches of production, following the crew and the cast as they contend with extreme weather, punishing deadlines and an ever-excited fandom hungry for spoilers.Much more than a “making of” documentary, this is a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world — and then have to say goodbye to it.” I am already overcome by emotions I know I won’t be able to handle once the finale airs.
