True to form, Game of Thrones will again include on its Season 7 DVD/Blu-Ray set a delicious History & Lore animated special that details some of the Westerosi “history” that informs so much of the action on the show. The clip HBO chose to release is pretty apropos considering Dany’s trajectory for the final season, and it certainly whetted our appetites for the rest of the special, which clocks in at 45 minutes.
The clip covers the Doom of Valyria and Aegon Targaryen’s eventual conquest of Westeros, and it’s narrated by our old buddy, Harry Lloyd (Viserys Targaryen and GoT audiobook narrator). Also, the animation is far more sophisticated than it’s been in previous seasons, and thank goodness! While we’ll probably never get to see Casterly Rock or Highgarden repped in the credits, getting such a kickass view of Valyria almost makes up for it.
The only catch is, if you’re interested in seeing this special in all its glory, you’re going to have to purchase the physical Season 7 DVD/Blu-Ray when it becomes available December 12th. Or, you can wait until December 13th and check YouTube. That’s where you’ll find the other Histories & Lore specials from previous seasons, which you should absolutely check out if you haven’t yet had the pleasure.
See, 2019 doesn’t feel so far away now, does it?
Sorry. We know.
The Game of Thrones Season 7 DVD/Blu-Ray set will be available December 12th (pre-order here), and Season 7 will be available for digital download on September 25th.
