We’ve a special feature today courtesy of a fan, Christine, who attended the Game of Thrones exhibit in Chicago the weekend before last (there’s one more coming to Los Angeles on December 9th and 10th), with a look at all the neat stuff HBO has put together in celebration of the release of the Season 6 Blu-Ray... as well as an exclusive new interview with Finn Jones, who portrayed the late, great Knight of Flowers… and is now due to star in the Netflix Marvel series, Iron Fist. Read on to learn what Christine saw, and what Finn had to say about Game of Thrones and what he’s been up to since filming wrapped on the previous season!
To celebrate Game of Throne‘s sixth season and the November Blu-Ray release, HBO created a pop-up theme park, showcasing an interactive world of the special featured content, allowing die-hard fans to traverse Westeros as a Khaleesi, stave off a horde of wights north of the Wall, train as a soldier in the Night’s Watch, claim the Iron Throne, or get caught in a wave of deadly chaos in the Battle of Bastards. Plus, as a special treat to early arrivers, Finn Jones â`“ also known to fans as Sir Loras Tyrell â`“ was on site to meet and greet, sign copies, and spare a few minutes of his hectic schedule to talk music, politics, and of course the burning question â`“ how will Game of Thrones end?
These events, held in New York, Chicago, and this upcoming weekend in Los Angeles, recreate some of the most iconic sequences of season six and offer hands-on sneak peeks of the Blu-Ray bonus content. Set up by location, fans navigate throughout Westeros and Essos faster than if they were on dragonback. Each location replicates the set design on the show, with a treasure trove of memorabilia and fun inside.
