Game of Thrones season three is a long 3 months away, but until then to satisfy your medieval cravings HBO has provided us all with this awesome art production video, enjoy:

In a recent interview with EW, show producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss this to say about the upcoming season’s individual show running times:

“There’s almost another full episode’s worth of extra minutes spread across the season. One of the great liberties with HBO is we’re not forced to come in at a specific time. We can’t be under 50 minutes or over 60, but that gives us a lot of flexibility…So for people clamoring for another episode, it’s in there. It’s just been cut into tiny pieces. A super-sized season, as befitting Storm of Swords. Last year we had a lot of 52-minute episodes. This year is a lot of 56, 57. All 10 episodes gained a minute or two from past seasons with the finale very possibly exceeding 60 minutes.”

The more they want to give the better, I’ll take as much as they can dish!!

Last but not least today, Brewery Ommegang, right here in New York state will be releasing special beers to go along with season 3! My excitement cannot be restrained as I am a huge fan of the Cooperstown Belgium Style Brews that Ommegang releases on a regular basis, nonetheless ones based on the adventures in the Westeros!! Look for the first in a series of four, The Iron Throne Blonde Ale coming this March! The rest will be release seasonally throughout the year and be priced around $8.50 a bottle!!

Game of Thrones returns to HBO on 3-31-13!

Stay tooned 😛
