Few shows have an opening title sequence as impressive as that of HBO's Game of Thrones. Since the beginning, it has helped plunge viewers into the world of Westeros, helping those watching the show learn the layout of the land. The fact that it all looks so cool, as mechanical cities rise and fall, makes the opening even more captivating to watch.
How somebody could possibly recreate such an opening using only paper boggles the mind, but that's exactly what the folks at Moleskine have done in a new promotional video for their line of limited edition Game of Thrones notebooks.
It's not the entire opening sequence, mind you. Moleskine wisely only brings one of the show's cities to life in paper form, but it doesn't happen to be the show's most iconic and expansive location. We are, of course, talking about none other than King's Landing, and it looks every bit as stunning here as it does on the show. Watching the gears spin and the paper towers collapse unto themselves looks like magic at work.
The show's title sequence wouldn't be the same without the now-iconic score of Ramin Djawadi blaring in the background, and this papercraft version of the intro features that as well. All in all, it's an impressive recreation of one of television's most well-known openings, and should get fans of the fantasy drama even more excited for the season six premiere on Sunday. You can watch the full video below.
Speaking of Game of Thrones season six, now is the perfect time to get caught up on the show. You can get the quick and dirty version of season five here, and we already have plenty of predictions for what events season six might hold in store. Will Tyrion live? Is Jon Snow returning from the dead? What's going on with Bran? What will happen to Dany? How will Sansa and Theon survive? Fans have plenty of questions, and for the first time, the books provide no answers. Winter is finally coming for us all, and we can't wait to see what it brings.
