  1. They’re filming in only two months - I wonder if any of the old contacts in Northern Ireland have noticed activity starting up again: set builders, extras, horse rental, etc
  2. Seems probable that we're getting the full trailer end of next week - presented by JB Perette of WBD's Video Game division: https://seriesmania.com/forum/en/fiche/keynote-jb-perette-president-and-ceo-of-global-streaming-and-games-warner-bros-discovery/ Thursday March 21 from 15:30 to 16:00 GMT (for me that's 11:30 to 12 noon EST)
  3. The production codename for The Hedge Knight is 'Sweetfoot', named after Dunk's horse
  4. Season 2 reshoots have ended on schedule and without incident. No new casting leaks during these reshoots, unfortunately.
  5. Seeing a lot of images on social media this week that Ukraine’s mud season has begun in earnest. That should pause any advances on the main front until around the start of May - have there been any solid dates predicted for mud season this year?
  6. No amount of sanctions will ever truly affect Russia because we fundamentally can’t afford the disruption to the global economy caused by stopping all their oil exports. So they’re not going to run out of oil money. But there’s a finite number of able-bodied men. You can fudge the numbers - use imprisoned political dissidents as cannon fodder - but sooner or later you’re going to hit the ceiling. Particularly in a country with a low birth rate the past three decades of the post Soviet era. Putin is willing to expend more men though, being an autocrat. But another factor is they already had LABOR shortages due to the low birth rate. If they draft more able bodied men the economy will suffer even more. And that’s assuming they take time to train conscripts.
  7. Sweden has officially joined NATO. Good news: if there’s one thing I detest, it’s neutrality. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-68506223
  8. In the WBD earnings call today, David Zaslav said they aim for A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms to premiere in LATE 2025. Up to now I thought it would be Summer. https://tvline.com/news/game-of-thrones-knight-of-the-seven-kingdoms-season-1-release-date-hbo-max-1235172818/
  9. Updated production info: filming June 3rd https://redanianintelligence.com/2024/01/05/a-knight-of-the-seven-kingdoms-aka-dunk-egg-series-gets-a-schedule-update/ https://productionlist.com/production/the-hedge-knight/
  10. This was heavily discussed at the time: rewrites and reshoots during filming are a normal and indeed essential part of the process. The strike happened just as filming began, when the scripts were “done” but they couldn’t do concurrent rewrites. Even at the time, HBO acknowledged “we’ll need a month of reshoots at some point after the strike is over”.
  11. Turns out the reshoots are bigger than we thought, will involve battle scenes, and didn’t even start yet! We thought filming would begin on February 1; instead filming begins March 1st and will last one month;
  12. Well it’s an ancient symbol they’ve come to USE as a warning sign for thin ice
  13. I think Aegon I was a lot like Rhaegar: burdened by prophecy, brooding and aloof. Not unlike so called “soft boy” Timothee Chalamet as Paul Atreides. For some reason women seem to like this more than his military prowess.
