Winter may already be here, but “Game of Thrones” Season Four is coming, which means the internet has been flooded with tidbits of official information and fan creations in anticipation of the April 6th premiere. We have collected the most recent of these for you in this post and as always you can check out past posts in which we break down: the 15-minute special feature, pivotal and behind the scenes sneak peeks, the official trailer and more!
This Unofficial Trailer Featuring Lorde’s “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” is the Best Trailer (via Mashable)
While this amazing fan made trailer doesn’t reveal anything new (it’s just pieced together clips from previews and official HBO trailers), it does give us an amazing use of Lorde’s Tears for Fears cover “Everybody Wants to Rule the World.” IN LOVE! Can someone hire this YouTuber and put her in charge of all future trailer decisions please? Either her or anyone who has ever been in charge of procuring music for a Lifetime original series.
Four Episodes Get Title Announcements (via Oh No They Didn’t!)
The first four episodes of the season now have titles and they have been revealed to be: 4×01 “Two Swords,” 4×02 “The Lion and the Rose,” 4×03 “Breaker of Chains” and 4×04 “Oathkeeper.” Meaning that episode one will most likely be about the fate of the sword Ice (but you know, we could be completely wrong), episode two is definitely about the Purple Wedding, episode three will have something to do with Daenerys’ rule in Mereen and episode four will have to do with Brienne’s newest task and a certain gift from a certain someone.
Black Milk Clothing is Making Official Merchandise So Start Saving in Anticipation (via Pinterest)
We warned you that the Black Milk Clothing “Game of Thrones” line was coming and now it’s a mere week away! There are plenty of dragon scale options as well as some selections for House Stark, Targaryen, Baratheon and Lannister as well as some quotes from Littlefinger and a map of Westeros. Ultimately we thought the Lord of the Rings, Batman and Harry Potter lines were better, but we are super excited for the dragon options nonetheless. You can check out the full line on Pinterest, which will be available for purchase from Black Milk on Monday, March 10 in the United States.
18 Characters Get Valar Morghulis Posters… AND NONE FOR STANNIS BARATHEON! (via WinterIsComing.net)
To promote the new season, HBO has released 18 character posters for its 58,000 main character cast, which look like they were created by a Tumblr user using pictures from old seasons (they are old by the way) and not a professional graphic artist. We guess they spent the budget on making those direwolves not look terrible or something and were left with this. Plenty of new characters get posters as well as some who are getting the honor for the first time. Except for Stannis Baratheon. Dude, you’re gonna want to get the Lord of Light to look at that sick burn.
You Know Who Does Though? This Three-Eyed Raven (via TV Line)
Not all the actual cast members may have been good enough for a poster, but this fictional three-eyed raven was! We guess it’s because he’s made of swords or something.
Here’s What Disney Princesses Would Look Like If They Lived in Westeros (via Geeks Are Sexy)
If the Disney princesses lived in Westeros they would be pretty stylish. Starring Elsa as Daenerys Targaryen (with Mulan’s dragon), Aurora as Cersei Lannister, Ariel as Melisandre, Belle as Margaery Tyrell, Rapunzel as Sansa Stark, Lilo as Arya and many more! You can check out all the Disney princesses as “Game of Thrones” characters HERE. See also: Disney princesses as Star Wars characters and as “Avatar: The Last Airbender” characters.
Read This Super Brief Excerpt from The Winds of Winter Which Proves GRRM Is Actually Writing It (via Hypable)
No worries fans of the book series A Song of Ice and Fire, despite all our joking, author George R. R. Martin is actually working on the fifth book in the series: The Winds of Winter. To prove this, Martin released a paragraph from Tyrion’s POV. The entire chapter will be available in March through Random House’s A World of Ice and Fire app but you can check out the first paragraph below.
Somewhere off in the far distance, a dying man was screaming for his mother. “To horse!” a man was yelling in Ghiscari, in the next camp to the north of the Second Sons. “To horse! To horse!” High and shrill, his voice carried a long way in the morning air, far beyond his own encampment. Tyrion knew just enough Ghiscari to understand the words, but the fear in his voice would have been plain in any tongue. I know how he feels.

We really don’t know why our government hasn’t gotten on this yet. Ugh. Thanks a lot Obama!
