HBO has been ramping up excitement for the Season 4 premiere of its hit show Game of Thrones for weeks now, with trailers, short behind the scenes videos, and photos from the new season all contributing to the public’s hunger for all things Thrones-related. Well, prepare for the coup de gras, as HBO has just released a full 15 minute special on the new season titled, “Game of Thrones Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing.”

The special features loads of goodies, including previously unseen footage of the new season. Members of the cast, as well as showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, also give us a rundown of what sorts of things we can expect to see in the new season.

In a fun twist, the special also features some of our favorite cast members answering questions from fans on Twitter. For instance, did you know that Kit Harington (Jon Snow) is kind of obsessed with Bronn? Or that Rory McCann (The Hound) thinks Joffrey’s lone redeeming quality is his “nice eyes?” Or that Kristian Nairn (Hodor) used a prosthetic, erm, appendage in Season 1? Well, you will after you watch the video! You can check it in its full 15 minute glory below.


What are you most excited about in Season 4? Let us know in the comments below.

Catch the Game of Thrones Season 4 premiere on Sunday, April 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
