Game of Thrones conquers Bellagio fountain show in epic fashion
In case you’ve been living under a rock somewhere in the Iron Islands, you know that the final season of Game of Thrones is approaching faster than a White Walker army. Need proof? Check out the Bellagio fountain show in Las Vegas, which has traded in Sinatra for Ramin Djawadi’s iconic Thrones theme; and added a few dragons to boot. Check out the video (via Entertainment Weekly) below!
At the end of last season, Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) dragons and her immense army were finally on the way to Westeros, where Cersei (Lena Headey) has now become Queen after the death of her children. The Night King’s (Vladimir Furdik in Season 6) army is heading south, and a battle appears to be imminent.
The executive producers of Game of Thrones Season 8 are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger, and Bernadette Caulfield; co-executive producers are Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis, George R.R. Martin and Bryan Cogman; and producers are Chris Newman, Greg Spence, and Lisa McAtackney.
The final season of Game of Thrones likely won’t be our last trip to Westeros, however, as HBO has greenlit a pilot set 1,000 years before the events of the wildly popular sword and sorcery epic. Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse have been cast in the prequel series. S.J. Clarkson (The Defenders, Jessica Jones) will direct the pilot.
Game of Thrones Season 8 will premiere on April 14 on HBO.
