While HBO sorts out the many, many Game of Thrones prequels they have in the works, Wild Wolf Films has already released a prequel of their own—and it’s not just a bunch of fans fooling about. This is an extremely well-crafted short film.
Wild Wolf Films are a small independent film production group from Belfast, home of Game of Thrones and have been inspired by our love of the series to take up a camera and make something ourselves.
The short takes place around 15 years before the first episode of Game of Thrones and is based around the events prior to Robert’s Rebellion.
“Brandon Stark, Ned Stark’s older brother and heir to Winterfell, has been betrothed to Catelyn Tully in an effort to unify the houses Stark and Tully. A young Petyr Baelish, living as a ward at Riverrun under the care of House Tully, has challenged Brandon to a duel for the Lady Catelyn’s hand in marriage. Brandon is answering the challenge to put young Littlefinger in his place…”
Winter Is Coming lists the cast, and one reader noted that Jenny Edgar (Lysa) actually appeared in the Game of Thrones episode “Hardhome”.
