Under the working title of Bloodmoon, Game of Thrones prequel will begin shooting in June of 2019. The series although without an official title yet is also referred some places as “The Long Night” and that’s because it is set 8000 years ago, before the Seven Kingdoms came into existence, before Aegon’s conquest. It is slated to go into production soon.
The Long Night’s aka Bloodmoon already boasts of a fantastic cast, both veterans, and newer faces. Naomi Watts has been cast for the prequel; the next established faces are Miranda Richardson, John Simm, and Jamie Campbell Bower. Others from amongst the principal cast include Josh Whitehouse, Georgia Henley, Alex Sharp, and Naomi Ackie. Author of the Game of Thrones books George R.R. Martin came up with the story for the show and Jane Goldman will serve as showrunner.
We’re a little curious as to why the working title is called Bloodmoon and that’s because blood plays a pivotal role in the series. This title is thematically approached by the makers is our best guess as of now. Let’s try not to extrapolate further meanings out the title until we have an official word from the makers as more often than not, working titles are innocuous, to say the least.
With Season 8 of Game of Thrones proving to be a bummer is some quarters and setting the highest records, expectations are soaring for Bloodmoom. However, it will be 2020 or something till Bloodmoon is on HBO.
