New Game of Thrones Preview Takes a Grand Tour of Westeros

| 23 Feb 2011 18:05

Ahead of the launch of the Game of Thrones TV miniseries, which is based on the first novel in George RR Martin's Song of Fire and Ice series, HBO is showing off the people and places of its dark and gritty world.

The video starts with the frozen wastes of the north, heading south to the vibrant city of King's Landing, and then across the sea to the land of the Dothraki horsemen.

There are snippets of the show itself, plus short interviews with the cast, executive producers, and even Martin himself, describing the some of the places the show will go to when it debuts in April. If you're a fan of A Song of Fire and Ice, then this is almost certain to excite you, but it's also a pretty decent introduction if you haven't read the books and the TV show is your first experience with the series' machinations and feuds.

The show looks to be of a very high quality, as you might expect with an HBO show, and stars the likes of Sean Bean and Lena Headley, who have previously appeared in the Lord of the Rings movies and 300, respectively.

Game of Thrones debuts on HBO on April 17th.
