Returning to Westeros: The production of HOTD with the cast and creators in a new video

returning to westeros rhaenyra

Released today by HBO, the latest House of the Dragon making-of production video shows us what it takes to bring Westeros back to life. The video includes new interviews from showrunners Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan Condal, producer/writer Sara Hess, costume designer Jany Temime, and actors such as Paddy Considine, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Milly Alcock, and Rhys Ifans.

“Returning to Westeros” is only 4 minutes long but it’s jam-packed with goodness, such as peeks at Rhaenyra’s offspring, a shot of Larys Strong at 3:55 just for our buddy JoeMagician, dragonriding-in-VFX progress, fantastic close-ups of costumes, and a wonderful variety of group scenes to pore over and pick apart, as we do. Enjoy!

  1. Squeeeeeee! It looks gorgeous! The same attention to detail, even a short preview is immersive. Roll on 21st Aug.!

  2. Ulf the Wolf,

    Ramin is still doing the music for HotD. I would prefer to hear something new that can be specifically associated with HotD and I think he’s the perfect man for the job.
    This show needs to stand on it’s own, IMO.

  3. Young Dragon:
    Off topic:
    George RR Martin has tested positive for COVID.

    I saw his video about it last night. Always scary when a senior gets it, even if they have been vaccinated, but he said his symptoms were mild so that’s encouraging. Hope he feels better soon.

  4. Young Dragon,

    Wanna go off topic for a bit?
