    1. I don’t mind the title, but that logo leaves much to be desired. I want to believe that HBO is more creative than that. It also, just could be, like Bloodmoon itself…. a ‘working’ logo… to match a working production title, in lieu of an official title being released yet. The show has not been greenlit. Which doubles down on….maybe it’s not official. I’m not sure we’d see it on anything yet, if it was previously unveiled.

    2. I’m going with this not being the actual title. The design doesn’t seem very well done frankly, and the title makes me think of the twilight series.

    3. The “O”s also join to form an ♾ symbol… as in Everlasting Winter Productions? I doubt this will be the final logo, though.

    4. Hm, guys, it’s a simplified logo for a production sheet. It’s not a proper version made for marketing purposes. I thought that’d be obvious.

    5. So there’s a spear between the two lines and and there’s some horizontal lines in the o’s. Whoo hoo. They really pushed the boat out on this one.

      it would seem strange for production to bother creating such an elaborate logo for a mere codename, wouldn’t it?

      There’s nothing elaborate or intriguing about it, but of course, YMMV.,

    6. I’m with George, I’m partial to it being called The Long Night but it’s still early days so we’ll see how it goes. Whatever it’s called, I will definitely check it out!

    7. Sorry, but I kinda like the logo. And as Luca said, this is simply an early mock up. Chill folks… we have something to be excited about now that GOT is gone. Come get on the bus 🤷🏼‍♂️

    8. Luka Nieto,

      Why would you assume it’s obvious when the title of this article says “OFFICIAL LOGO REVEALED”? I get this is your site, but I mean… you don’t need to be rude and condescending. ✌🏽♥️

    9. Luka Nieto,

      You specifically said it was elaborate and intriguing in the article. I think that’s why some of the responses are the way they are.

      Now you’re saying it’s simplified though. Make up your mind 😉

    10. Whatever the official title is and what the logo becomes, I’d still like them to stick with the same font and O lines as GoT to display and convey the connection.

    11. If y’all had seen the GoT lettered logo ten years ago you would have hated it too. “What’s with the three lines? It’s so simple! Wtf!!!”

    12. Sue the Fury,

      You might be right 🙂 , but I personally don’t have any specific set of expectations. I’m just confused by what I’m reading.

      The title of the article specifically says “official logo revealed”

      However, the text within the article says: whenever we get the title and logo officially, it should look more impressive

      So, is this official or not?

      Is this elaborate or simplified?

      It really isn’t that complicated.

      It IS the official logo used by the production. It also hasn’t been officially or publicly used by HBO.

      It IS elaborate, if Bloodmoon was supposed to be a mere codename. But it’s also simplified, as it’s taken from a production sheet, and not intended for marketing purposes, which means we’ll get a prettier version eventually.

      So, the reply above may seem condescending as well, but I can’t help it when I encounter this level of reading comprehension. All of what I said above is said in the article as well, in very similar and easy to understand words.

    14. Bloodmoon, really?? Sounds like a sequel to Twilight if you ask me lol
      Now seriously, does anyone remember anything from the lore that might link to this?

    15. Luka Nieto,

      Or you could just be a professional and apologize for any possible confusion in your article instead of being antagonistic to your readers, but no, you decided to go out of your way to be condescending when there’s no need or reason to be.

    16. It’s a horrible title, so I’m sincerely hoping it’s just a placemarker. In which case the temporary logo would be moot.

    17. I don’t care about logos, show titles, episode titles, or posters. All I care about is the show content.

      Bloodstone Emperor is something I’m hoping for, as I’ve mentioned previously here. It sounds pretty familiar to bloodmoon anyway.

      You are wasting time on pointless discussion.

      To be completely fair.. Everything for the upcoming months that’s not an official greenlit for the show could well be pointless. So what are we doing here?

      And to be fair, I’m not even sure I’m interested anymore. I can still see the boxes that D&D thought they had to tick in order to get to the end (which is how I defended part of s7 and most of s8), but I no longer stand by their execution of said path. Everytime I see Wotw on my shortlist of sites to go to.. I grow increasingly bitter on how s8 was realized and I think I’m not going to bother anymore.

      That Luka is a dick to his readers (on so many occasions, just ask him about his views on racism) is just the last drop in the bucket. Bye.

    20. BeardedOnion: Bloodstone Emperor is something I’m hoping for, as I’ve mentioned previously here

      And like after those other mentions I’ll again say I’m on board with you. I don’t know if they would actually centralize a (the first) prequel on the Bloodstone Emperor so much that the title of the show would refer to him, but I do think that they could come up with a storyline of his that would be really exciting and entertaining. It does have ties to the Long Night so there’s a good chance for inclusion as the series moves forward if not at the beginning.

      I think the best thing they can do with the prequel is spread it out again — make it ‘sprawling’ with an epic sense that GoT was lauded for as it got going. They need to do multiple locations with many characters and arcs running. GoT confused all the people new to the story with so many, but that made it great because all of them were entertaining, so even though viewers may have not been able to remember names they still got hooked watching the “imp guy” or “the little tomboy” or the “white-haired chick with the asshole brother… the one that is fuckin’ the warrior dude. You know…”

    21. So long as it’s intriguing, exciting, and has interesting character dynamics, it could be called “The Love Bug VI: Herbie Goes to Jail” for all I care.

    22. Okay, but I can’t look at it without thinking of shutter shades (those plastic 80s sunglasses with the slats.) The lines are going the other way but I still can’t unsee it.

      Tar Kidho,

      If you’re taking sides, you’re not neutral.

      Of course one can “take a side” as a neutral outsider! Ever since the 2nd season, I have been mostly a lurker here (actually back then still the old site), staying away from spoilers and the often acid discussions. As such, I have no ties with either Luka or Raenerys/Mr Derp, and I am unaware if there has been bad blood between any of them in the past. This means my interpretation of what I read is unbiased in any way, aka “neutral”.

      I will probably go back into lurking mode now, seeing as the acid has apparently reached the highest echelons…

    24. So, I’ve been thinking what the title ‘Bloodmoon’ might refer to, and so far this is my best guess: There will literally be a blood red moon in the first episode of the show, and it will serve a similar function to the red comet in the beginning of Season 2 of GoT. Meaning it will be taken as a sign to mean different things by different people, and more importantly it’ll be a neat device to have a shared context between different characters/locations that might otherwise seem separate from each other in the beginning. That’s just my thinking though, maybe it’ll be something completely different.

    25. Bloodmoon? Sounds like a bit of a crappy title to me. If indeed this prequel is about the rise of the White Walkers, the Children of the Forest or whatever. ‘The Long Night’ as a title sounds better.

      I’ll just go with flow and wait to the series airs. Logos and titles being the least thing I would worry about. Its the story/content that’s important.

    29. I used to work in magazines and every time we were launching something new, it had a code name. Similarly, through that work I was sometimes “aware of” in-progress shows and films etc… they always had code names especially if they were an anticipated project. Almost everyone who ever writes a book or song or anything has a working title code name. I think that’s all this is. They wouldn’t use the real name yet. It still makes me all excited seeing it though!

    30. Clob,

      Re: the title Blood Moon and the Bloodstone Emperor, I assume this has been referenced:

      “The Opal Emperor was succeeded by his daughter, the Amethyst Empress. Her younger brother slew her and usurped the throne, and event which is remembered as the Blood Betrayal. He proclaimed himself the Bloodstone Emperor and began a reign of terror, practicing dark magical arts and necromancy. He cast down the true gods to worship a black stone which had fallen from the sky. According to the annals of the east, the Blood Betrayal is attributed as the cause of the Long Night, as it caused the Maiden-Made-of-Light to despair and turn her face away from mankind, while the Lion of Night sent the generation-long winter to punish mankind. In the chaos that followed, the Great Empire of the Dawn collapsed.”

      Based on the diverse cast, the title and some of the photos, it doesn’t seem like a ridiculous stretch that Essos and these events are part of the story. I just have the feeling that this is not a Westeros-only story.

      Your response is akin to a 12 year old kid saying no, you are, at least try harder and use some commas too while you’re at it, you know what commas are right? Talk about low IQ !

      Re: the title Blood Moon and the Bloodstone Emperor

      I just wanted to add my thanks for that information. Very interesting. There may be a connection between what you’ve described and the following claims from the first ASOIAF book too, although given GRRM’s “no dragons in the prequel” remark we probably won’t see this until the very last episode:

      In Qarth, tales state dragons came from a second moon in the sky, which was scalded by the sun and cracked like an egg, and a million dragons poured forth.[1]

      So…the Bloodstone Emperor’s dark magic (or the Blood Betrayal) triggers a “Blood Moon”, which releases huge numbers of dragons?

      Last week, I posted a comment suggesting that the “Romans” photographed actually depict an advanced Roman-style civilisation on Westeros that is about to collapse. If the Great Empire of the Dawn also falls at around the same time, and for similar reasons linked to The Long Night, perhaps the prequel really will be about the simultaneous global collapse of multiple advanced civilisations. Epic stuff if that turns out to be the case.
