Dubrovnik finishes preparation for Game of Thrones filming

IqTkrnA

Filming for Game of Thrones season 5 begins tomorrow in Dubrovnik.

The Croatian city has represented King’s Landing in past seasons of the show, and that trend will continue for the upcoming season.

We previously posted the crew’s schedule for shooting in the city. Thanks to experience.dubrovnik.hr, there is now a comprehensive map of the locations being used (click to enlarge).

The following pictures (and the header) show that a lot of progress has been made on some of the sets, in preparation for filming over the next two weeks.

    1. In that interview linked here a while back he’d said he shot four weeks and would shoot three more so I think there will be more Loras for sure. He alluded to some sort of fight scene too, which should be interesting (though I don’t have any inkling what it’ll be).

    2. Arkash,

      His character has sort of been screwed over by the fact he’s the sole Tyrell heir here. He can’t be in the Kingsguard, which is where most of the already little character development he had in the books comes from. He’s sort of doomed to be in a Mace Tyrell Jr. role now. Not sure what “fight” or important scene he could be in.

      Maybe it’s another sex scene. This time with the High Sparrow.

    3. That last picture of Dubrovnik is where Arya was when she tried to buy the food in exchange for the pigeon she just killed…the one where she saw people running, asked where they were going, and they said The Hand was being taken into the square outside the Sept of Baelor, isn’t it.

      That just made my stomach do a flip-flop.

      King Richard’s biological sons?

      Richard, the Lionheart, of the House Plantagenet, First of His Name, King of the Angles, the Saxons and the Merry Men, Lord of the Kingdom and Protector of the Realm.

      Nymeria Warrior Queen,

      No it wasn’t… because in Season 1 King’s Landing was shot in Malta, not Croatia, let alone Dubrovnik.

      That’s right, Season 1 King’s Landing was filmed in Malta. Thanks. I’d forgotten about that. Now I want to go back and watch that scene to see if it resembles the particular spot in Dubrovnik as much as it seems to me it does.

    6. Of the Night: Richard, the Lionheart, of the House Plantagenet, First of His Name, King of the Angles, the Saxons and the Merry Men, Lord of the Kingdom and Protector of the Realm.

      Er, no, that’s not correct.

      Richard, the Crouchback, of the House Plantagenet, Third of his Name, King of the Anglos, the Saxons and the Ki-niggits of the Round Table, Lord of the Kingdom For a Horse, and Protector of the Realm.

    7. Greatjon of Slumber: Er, no, that’s not correct.

      Richard, the Crouchback, of the House Plantagenet, Third of his Name, King of the Anglos, the Saxons and the Ki-niggits of the Round Table, Lord of the Kingdom For a Horse, and Protector of the Realm.

      Was it he who first said, “The winter of our discontent is coming.”?

      Nice, though I still think it’s Richard I and not Richard III that’s being referred to as there is another mention of Richard the Lionheart on the same image. Also weren’t the Ki-niggits of the Round Table from the times of King (probably only a warlord actually) Arthur.

      Nymeria Warrior Queen: Was it he who first said, “The winter of our discontent is coming.”?

      Now that was Richard III, though the phrasing may have been muddled somewhat when Grand Maester Shakespeare recorded the king’s words for prosperity.

    9. Renly’s Peach,

      I can see that scenario happening in the books (especially if the covert Loras/Redwyne navy theory is true) but definitely not in the show. 🙂

      Remind me again…did they ever reference the peach in the show?

    10. Off Topic #1: Do we know for sure that Jorah is involved in the Sorrows? I mean, IIRC a random fan states that Iain Glen was spotted in Toome. But maybe the crew filmed there more than only the Sorrows scene … Filming in Toome was quite secretly, and still this locations could be used to shoot some scenes on the Rhoyne after the Sorrows… Still don’t believe that D&D will cut the Griffs.

      Off Topic #2: Do you think that Kovarro will return and will be poisoned by locusts instead Belwas?

      Off Topic #3: Do you think that braavosi (language) will exist in show canon? Some shooting reports states that Arya was offering seafood in English.

    11. Hodor’s Bastard,

      The peach – no. It was in early drafts but got cut (as happened with other minor plot points and characters including Patchface, incidentally).

      There was a humourous interview with Bryan Cogman where he told a rather long story about it being due to Gethin Anthony having a violent hatred of peaches.

    12. StandOzone,

      Regarding offtopic question #3 – DJP (the language man) is very busy for this season but won’t reveal with what.

      BUT in conversation with people (including me) in the comments on his blog, I think a fairly safe assumption is that we won’t see any Old Tongue, but we probably will see Braavosi. He’s put at least some preliminary thought into how he would derive the Free Cities languages from HV.

    13. Will any of the characters from riverlands be back this season??

      Blackfish, fucking Freys, Edmure, Thoros, Berric, ….
      What happened to them??

    14. Patchface: Actually,

      Is is known… There was an oath!

      Eugh. Be annoying if Stannis was killed by either of those two characters! I think Brienne has moved on from Renly and Loras…well book Loras seems a bit rudderless/

      potentially dead or dying

      . I think it would be a nice twist if Stannis got the throne with everyone looking at

      one of the Targs

      . Guy deserves something as his persitence is so admirable plus I think he may not be the ruler Westeros wants but the one it needs!
      Ok…if Euron doesn’t kill him at least have him soundly defeat/seriously injure Flowerboy?!

    15. Kit Whelan,

      Thanks for the new pictures. They would have probably credited you, but I believe the pics were taken from imugur (probably someone took em from your fb page and uploaded them there).

      Anyway, your pics are amazing! Keep up the good work. 😀

    16. Kit Whelan,

      I’ll guess that this is some version of that AFFC scene where Loras tries to teach Tommen how to joust and Cersei appears and forces him to dismount and leave with her. It’s a nice scene to show Cersei’s distrust to the Tyrells and their influence over Tommen

    17. Veltigar:
      Yeah, seconded. I quite like Finn Jones as an actor, I think he definitely has potential to make it big someday.

      I agree! Finn needs more scenes and speaking lines.

      Tbh, I was really looking forward to seeing his auditioned scene (where Loras confronted Brienne in the Keep) come to life in the series.

      Gutted that that scene never materialized for the show.

    18. I’m not certain where you are getting your information, but great topic. I needs to spend a while learning more or working out more. Thank you for excellent info I used to be in search of this information for my mission.
