Watch a clip from the Game of Thrones Season 6 special features: “Bran’s Journey”


It’s barely been a month since the final hour of Game of Thrones Season 6 aired on HBO, but all 10 episodes, plus an array of special features, will be available to download in just a couple of days. Game of Thrones: The Complete Sixth Season drops on August 1 on platforms like iTunes, Vudu, Amazon Video, Google Play, and Flixter (links will take you to pages where you can place preorders).

Here’re the special features that’ll come with the purchase of a Digital HD download:

  • Bran’s Journey – A nine-minute feature delving into the shocking and revelatory journey Bran Stark took in Season 6.
  • The Dothraki World – Behind-the-Scenes featurette bringing viewers up to speed on the Dothraki culture, not seen since Season 1.
  • Inside Game of Thrones: Prosthetics – Behind-the-Scenes featurette detailing what goes into the show’s prosthetics creation.
  • The Game Revealed – Five-part series covering the creation of Season 6’s most epic set pieces and scenes.

The Wall Street Journal has a snippet from “Bran’s Journey,” in which director Jack Bender and actors Isaac Hempstead Wright and Krisitan Nairn talk about Hodor’s final moments. Have a watch.

According to Wright, Hodor was “a totally normal kid who was then screwed over by Bran.” That’s gotta hurt.

Incidentally, The Game Revealed is also available to watch on the web. The Blu-ray and DVD releases of Game of Thrones Season 6, which will feature yet more special features, will be out on November 15.
