Game of Thrones is getting a monthlong 10th-anniversary celebration on HBO
Quote

It's been almost two years years since Game of Thrones went off the air, but April 17 marks the 10th anniversary of the epic fantasy show's original premiere. And HBO is celebrating in style with the Iron Anniversary, a month's worth of events to revisit the series, raise money for charity, and get fans ready for the coming spin-offs like House of the Dragon.

As of Monday, HBO Max has launched a new Game of Thrones Spotlight Page that highlights fan-favorite episodes, behind-the-scenes documentaries, and recommendations for other HBO Max offerings that viewers of the show might enjoy. For instance, those who identify most with House Stark and adventurous children with grand destinies are pointed towards His Dark Materials and Watchmen, while audiences who most enjoy the backstabbing and incestuous infighting of House Lannister are directed to Succession.

On April 10, HBO will launch the Game of Thrones #MaraThrone (get it?), airing all episodes of season 1 starting at 10 a.m. ET on HBO 2. After that, fans are challenged to complete a full series rewatch on their own using HBO Max. They'll be getting some major encouragement from the show's cast members, who will chime in over the following two weeks to encourage viewers to complete their marathons and also contribute to any of 10 charitable causes: Women for Women International, World Central Kitchen, Conservation International, International Rescue Committee, UNICEF, FilmAid International, SameYou, Royal Mencap Society, National Urban League, and the Trevor Project.

Game of Thrones was a mystical journey for both the fans and the cast alike. The fantastical series was a blissful escape from reality for a wide variety of audience. HBO is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Game of Thrones as the Iron anniversary. There will be month-long events and Game of Thrones specials all through April. HBO released a number of videos today featuring the cast of the series looking back at the show’s run. Let’s check them out!

Rory McCann (The Hound) recalled being nervous filming the first episode. He was starstruck by actor Sean Bean, and his horse Fat Bob ran into a pear tree:
