HBO recently announced the ‘Iron Anniversary’ event, a month-long celebration commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Game of Thrones premiere.
It’s been nearly two years since the finale aired to a split reaction from fans. Despite the tempered enthusiasm following the final season, fans do seem eager to view the upcoming prequel series HBO currently has in production. Before then, HBO is encouraging and challenging fans to binge-watch the series, starting April 10th with season 1 airing on HBO2 starting at 10 am.
In addition, there will be highlighted content on the HBO Max app that will feature interviews with cast and crew, behind-the-scenes content, and more.
Of course, binging all the episodes is self-serving and for those who were turned off by the final season/episodes, enough time may have passed to appreciate it once more. However, not only will you get enjoyment on your own, during the event, various charitable causes will be highlighted.
For two weeks, cast members from the Emmy-winning drama series will highlight these causes, which include Women for Women International, World Central Kitchen, Conservation International, International Rescue Committee (IRC), UNICEF, FilmAid International, SameYou, Royal Mencap Society, National Urban League and The Trevor Project.
Not only should this be a fun celebration of what once was with the Game of Throne universe, but this should also reinvigorate fans for the bevy of prequels that are either in the works or are already in development at HBO. George R.R. Martin, author of the “Song of Ice and Fire” series recently signed a five-year deal with HBO and will be heavily involved in the upcoming projects for the network.
