Game of Thrones Season 4 Special Features

The fourth season of Game of Thrones is hitting shelves today, if you haven't already pre-ordered a copy make sure to pick it up now!  

I know one thing that I'm always looking forward to when a new season of Game of Thrones is about to be released on Blu-Ray is the special features.  They give us just that great sendoff the season deserves, and always gets me ready for the upcoming season.  Now if your not planning on picking up the season on Blu-Ray or DVD, don't worry below you'll find several of the bonus feature videos.

 

Also make sure to check out the videos for: Creating the Mammoths and Giants; and Behind the Battle of Castle Black with Jon Snow.  

And what would a Game of Thrones special features set be without a few History and Lore videos.  Check out the Histories and Lore for Poisons, and The Death of Kings below.  

Pixomondo Making of Game of Thrones Season 4

One of the coolest things about seeing Game of Thrones as a television show, is seeing the dragons brought to life on screen.  Pixomondo, one of the copies behind the CGI effects that bring Dany's dragons to life has recently released a video showing how tow they have brought these amazing creatures to life in the show.

The video shows several scenes involving the dragons, including the final where Rhaegal and Viserion are being chained up.  I know I always enjoy seeing the process taken to developing these amazing creatures (even though I know I would have no idea how to do it myself).  

Check out the video below!
