The 4th season of the epic HBO series Game of Thrones, based on George R. R. Martins best selling book series ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’, is returning April 7th for another season filled with duplicity and treachery, death and survival, conquest and triumph.
When the 3rd season launched last year, HBO went on tour with an international Game of Thrones exhibition, to bring the marvelous and fascinating world of Westeros to the fans. It was – obviously – a great success. I mean, it was free AND you could take pictures of yourself sitting on the Iron Throne. Whats not to like?
Great news is that the exhibition again is on a world tour visiting five cities; Mexico City, Rio de Janiero, Oslo, Toronto Belfast, Austin, and Vancouver. This time HBO promises to offer ‘a fresh perspective on the show, focusing on key places, characters and relationships from the series’. Amongst the displays are weapons, props, armors, costumes, storyboards and more. You can also dive into the world of Westeros through a new, interactive experience. HBO will also offer merchandise from their shop.
Everything completely free of charge. What an awesome way for HBO to show their gratitude towards the fans! This year I was thrilled to see that the exhibit is coming to Posthallen in Oslo, Norway the 26th-30th April. I have read all the books and seen every episode, so I can’t wait to explore Westeros in a new and different way.
Here is a video from the Austin, Texas exhibit:
And while we’re at it, here is a new trailer for the upcoming season 4:
