“Westeros The Series” gives fans of the hit HBO show a tantalizing idea of “what if” as they anxiously await the final season of Game of Thrones. There are direwolves walking out of fancy cars, a highway along the Wall, and dragons flying over a sprawling metropolis.
“Trust me, fear cuts deeper than swords,” a Lannister prime minister says to a large crowd that looks quite like the crowds that gather for real world leaders. “There is nothing behind the Wall.”
The rest of the trailer shows what appears to be a future including many of the iconic images from Game of Thrones. The large statue overlooking the free city of Braavos has windmills next to it, the Iron Throne is encased in a large glass cube, and an area of a city is named “Targaryen Square.”
As of Monday afternoon, the fan-made trailer has nearly 2 million views. For now, this is the closest thing we have to another season of Game of Thrones.
Take a look at the trailer here. Would you watch a modern-day take on Game of Thrones?
Update 11:4am CT, Sept. 5: The “Westeros The Series” trailer is a spoof trailer created by a Dutch satirical show Zondag met Lubach. The YouTube account that uploaded the original trailer posted a second video that reveals the original trailer was a promotion for the latest season of the show.
