Hilarious Princess Bride / Game of Thrones promo is perfect

Season 3 is coming… What if Fred Savage had been read A Game of Thrones rather than The Princess Bride? Hilarity. That’s what.

If you haven’t finished watching (or reading) season one (or book one) of the Game of Thrones, this video contains major spoilers for the first season (or book).

It is fantastic how well The Princess Bride and A Game of Thrones go together as edited in this trailer.

The color correction is spot on and there are more speeders and walkers visible. He even added orange stripes to a full size speeder that were missing from the original shot as they take off from the hanger.
