Lightsabers Were The Only Thing That Could Improve Game Of Thrones And Here's The Proof

"Why is everything better with lightsabers?"

After teasing Cleganebowl for eight seasons, Game of Thrones finally delivered with the ultimate fight between Sandor and Gregor (AKA the Hound and the Mountain) in the show’s penultimate episode.

The pair battled as King’s Landing and the Red Keep crumbled around them. To be honest, it was a pretty epic scene, but there is one thing that would make it even more so – lightsabers.

ImmersionVFX has edited the scene to include lightsabers and the score from Anakin vs. Obi-Wan in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith – which fits perfectly with the scene, by the way – and it is seriously epic.

Watch here:

Many people commented on the video about how the last blade the Hound drew was a blue one to show he “went full Light Side before the end”.

One fan wrote, “I was gonna comment that the hounds saber should have been purple. But the dagger at the end being blue was actually perfect.”

Another added, “Why is everything better with lightsabers[?]”

Someone else praised the video, saying it looked just like something from an actual Star Wars film, “Honestly, if you showed this clip to someone who has never watched GOT, I wouldn’t be surprised if they thought it was from an actual Star Wars movie. Great job!”

Though others pointed out the fact he took revenge, which isn’t the Jedi way, so there is that.

Still, a bloody cool scene!

New Photo Shows How Carrie Fisher Has Been Edited To Appear In Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

She was originally meant to be at the forefront of the film.

A new photo from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has given fans a look at how old footage has been used to bring Carrie Fisher’s General Leia Organa back to life in the new film.

Star Wars fans were heartbroken in 2016 when Fisher passed away due to complications from a heart attack, and while she had completed all her scenes for The Last Jedi, her passing caused complications for The Rise of Skywalker.

Leia was originally supposed to be at the forefront of the film like Han Solo and Luke Skywalker were for the previous two films.

Lucasfilm didn’t even look into the options of recasting or digitally recreating Fisher’s likeness, so JJ Abrams decided they’d use old footage of the actress from The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi and wrote new scenes so Fisher was still part of the film.

In the teaser trailer, we got a quick glimpse of Leia hugging Rey, but a new image has given fans their best look at her.

Vanity Fair did a spread on The Rise of Skywalker which included an image of John Williams conducting the movie’s score. In the background you can see a photo of Leia, it’s quite small, but thankfully Redditor Dentface has shared an upscaled version of the shot which you can see here:

It looks as though they have used this scene of Leia from Force Awakens:

The new photo shows they’ve made some touch ups to make Leia appear older, they’ve added some grey to her hair and aged her skin.

We still don’t have much idea of what kind of role Leia will play in the film, but hopefully, as we get closer to the release date it will become a little clearer.

Game Of Thrones: The Last Watch Reveals New Detail About Arya's Night King Scene And Now It Actually Makes Sense

We finally have our answer.

Game of Thrones may have ended a week ago, but fans still have so many questions.

One thing that has stuck out to people since the Battle of Winterfell was how Arya appeared seemingly out of nowhere to kill the Night King as he approached Bran.

There were many theories about how she managed it – maybe she stole the face of one of the White Walkers, or maybe Jon Snow had helped create a distraction so she could make her move. There was even another theory that she jumped out of a window to get to the Night King.

But the answer to that crucial question was finally answered during HBO’s two-hour documentary about the final season Game of Thrones: The Last Watch.

The cast is shown at a table read while producer Bryan Cogman reads the script aloud to the actors, who are getting more and more excited as he reaches the pivotal part in the episode.

Cogman reads, “She vaults off a pile of dead wights, leaps at the Night King,” as he says this Kit Harington gasps. Cogman goes on, “And she plunges the dagger up through the Night King’s armour. The Night King shatters.”

So, while it was difficult to tell due to the episode’s lighting, it seems Arya used the height advantage of the stack of wight bodies before jumping off and killing the Night King.

Now, Arya’s leap through the air makes more sense, though it was still a bloody huge jump.

It makes sense that after editing the scene the showrunners didn’t show the actual jump as they were likely hoping audiences wouldn’t expect Arya to come jumping out of nowhere.
