It’s been almost a decade since George R.R. Martin’s fantastical world of Westeros jumped from the pages of his beloved novels and onto television screens around the world.
Regardless of whether you loved or hated the controversial Game of Thrones series finale, chances are you are excited for one of the many spinoffs that are currently in the works and perhaps already marking your calendars for the GoT stage show that will be making its way to Australia in 2024.
To commemorate that esteemed day on April 17, 2011, when Jon Snow and company entered our global living room, Australian streaming service BINGE will be heroing Game of Thrones on the BINGE centre homepage and will also have some additional extras and behind the scenes content starting later in April so you can revel in all things Thrones to your heart’s content.
In the US, HBO is planning a month-long celebration to honour the show’s decade long reign. Titled The Iron Anniversary, the cable network will be rolling out plenty of content and even a challenge — where fans are encouraged to re-watch the entire series from the start for charity.
HBO has also announced plans to surprise three couples who got married in Westeros-themed locations with barrels of Game of Thrones-brand wine, custom chalices and cakes.
Offscreen, Fabergé has produced a one-of-a-king “commemorative egg object” to coincide with the tenth anniversary. The egg exterior is purple, blue, red and silver with diamond accents with a ruby red interior and represents “the tale of Daenerys Targaryen’s quest to take her place on the Iron Throne.”
Of course, the egg costs USD $2.2 million so you’re probably wiser to invest in a BINGE subscription for a more cost-effective way to pay homage to the mega-hit fantasy series.
