"Winter is Here," Hibernate & Hygge with HBO's Game of Thrones' Game of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season on Blu-ray™ and DVD Fan Fest Screening Weekend.

By Laura Medina

If the "Game of Thrones" doesn't get you geeking out on Medieval English Dark Ages, than nothing will.

As a thank you to all the die-hard, loyal fans, HBO threw a "Game of Thrones" fan festival week at L.A. Live Regal Cinema, just in time for the Season 7 DVD and Blu-Ray release.  Alright, it's also a teaser bait for the very last, finale season for the violent yet enduring fantasy series, based on England's feudal history and how the English aristocracy can about...with dragons and frozen zombies.

"Game of Thrones" came in, seven years ago (2011), where the last Harry Potter movie left off.  It picked up off the steam of Harry Potter, picking up the first generation Harry Potter fans as they grew up into young adults in their early to mid-twenties.  In other words, "Game of Thrones" built on Harry Potter's English mythology but tossed in a lot of sex and violence (using the English civil wars history) for tense flavoring.

The map of the fictional Westeros, is based on England, Scotland, and if Ireland physically joined then George R.R. Martin stretched it into the size of South America in his epic fantasy series 'A Song of Ice and Fire,' which HBO based their hit TV series on.

HBO turned L.A Live Regal Theater's second floor into a mini Game of Thrones pop-up museum where fans ooohed and aaahhhhed over the props and cheerily sat in the Swords Thrones and Daenerys Targaryen's throne...

HBO also put a gallery of the series' beloved characters with their most famous quotes...
There's the beloved Jon Snow with the dragon eggs, the crown, and the dagger.
The gallery also includes the series' swords...
Literally, next to the gallery, arounding off the corner is the gateway to the screening of "Game of Thrones"  “Spoils of War” Episode from Season 7 and their version of a Cliff Note, the animated cartoon back history of "Game of Thrones," the Blu-rayTM and DVD exclusive bonus feature, Conquest and Rebellion, a 45-minute animated story of the turbulent events that shaped Westeros that can only be found for a limited time on the Season 7 Blu-rayTM and DVD set.
The first thing that greets you, when you reach the third floor screening theater is a concession dedicated to giving free snacks and drinks to the special invited fans...
Sodas served in special, limited edition, collector's reusable sippy cups and one bucket of popcorn per a fan.
In lucky 13 Theater, fans settled in, with our free drinks and popcorn, to Episode "Spoils of War" from Season 7.  As precursor, the screening started with the animated backstory history of how the fiefdoms and kingdoms in the "Game of Thrones" came about, in the cool
comic book cartoon (adult cartoon),  "Conquest and Rebellion."
This is where the fan fest screening leaves off...
If you want to see the fan fest experience, you just to buy the "Game of Thrones" Season 7 DVD and Blu-Ray sets, where you get "Spoils of War" episode and the "Conquest and Rebellion" cartoon back history Cliff Notes with voice-over commentaries from the leading stars.
