Ballintoy is one big, beautiful gossip.
As Tech Times discovered recently, drone footage of the surrounding area uncovered far more than remarkably stunning landscapes but also some juicy tidbits for the upcoming season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”
Now for those who like their GoT main course spoiler-free, please tread forward lightly.
With that warning out of the way, we shall explain. It seems the following video, posted to YouTube by Eye In The Sky, purports to show how things are going in the Iron Islands.
Obviously, this is the actual location of Ballintoy in Northern Ireland. But you can see for yourself that Westeros is really quite beautiful at this time of year.
Tech Times helps us out on what we may actually be seeing in this brief video: “As netizens are quick to point out, the video most likely shows the filming for the Kingsmoot, essentially the traditional ceremony in which the Iron Islands captains elect a new king.”
The report digs further into the spoilers including how things unfold in the book: “Game of Thrones is based on the A Song of Ice and Fire novels by George R. R. Martin, and those who have read the novels already have a good idea of upcoming events in the fantasy drama. In the books, the next king the Iron-born elect in the Kingsmoot traditional ceremony is Euron Greyjoy, which means the character will play an important role in season 6.”
As we have reported in the past, Northern Ireland has embraced “Game of Thrones” and all the tourism interest that comes with the popular franchise.
But the wave of Hollywood productions doesn’t end with Starks, Greyjoys and Lannisters.
The Ballymoney and Moyle Times, for example, reports on the influx of stars thanks to the production of “The Lost City of Z,” which “includes big names like Sienna Miller, Charlie Hunnam, Sienna Buck and Robert Pattinson.”
What’s good for the superstars is downright magnificent for those not featuring in blockbuster productions.
Discover Ireland happily offers details on the harbor that is so resplendent producers are jumping at the chance of using the location as a backdrop for film.
We just hope things go better for you than for the Greyjoys.
