The Friday schedule for San Diego Comic-Con was released today, and it includes some details on this year’s Game of Thrones panel!
Game of Thrones will return to Hall H on Friday, July 25 from 1:40pm – 2:40pm, for a panel and Q&A session. The following details accompanied the schedule:
Based on the bestselling fantasy book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin, HBO’s Game of Thrones concluded its 10-episode fourth season in June and will begin filming its fifth season this summer. The series, executive produced and written by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, is an epic story of treachery and nobility, set on the continent of Westeros, where summers and winters can last years. Featured cast include (in alphabetical order) Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister, Natalie Dormer as Margaery Baratheon, Kit Harington as Jon Snow, Rose Leslie as Ygritte, Rory McCann as Sandor Clegane (“The Hound”), Pedro Pascal as Oberyn Martell, Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark, and Maisie Williams as Arya Stark.
We can now safely assume that the listed cast members will be in attendance, and it is likely that we will get official word from HBO on the lineup soon. Very exciting news!
One person who is sure to be at the convention is George R.R. Martin, who is featured on the Thursday schedule to discuss his novels and upcoming projects.
New York Times bestselling author George R. R. Martin (Game of Thrones) discusses his novels, projects, and the visceral new In the House of the Worm comic book series. Moderator William Christensen (Avatar Press publisher) conducts this Q&A with Martin live and in person!
