The Lion King 2019 Cast & Character Guide: Who Voices Which Animal?

Who voices which animal in The Lion King remake? The Lion King is one of Disney’s most beloved movies, and that adoration is only going to increase still further with the release of the new “live-action” version, directed by Jon Favreau, this summer.

Favreau scored a huge hit with his remake of The Jungle Book in 2016; a photorealistic computer animated version of the movie that refreshed the original animated version and made it more magical, exciting and entertaining than ever before. Favreau will no doubt be hoping for the same with The Lion King, which uses the same concepts as The Jungle Book did. That is to say, none of the animals in the movie are real, but they all look like the real deal.

Trailers for The Lion King look promising, with stunning visuals, very realistic animals, and the same emotive story we all know and love. To truly do it all justice, Favreau has assembled an all-star voice cast for The Lion King, and we’ve got the full character details below.

Donald Glover is Simba

The central lion of the movie, Donald Glover will voice adult Simba, who lives deep in the jungle with his friends Timon and Pumbaa, following the death of his father. He remains there, happy, until it becomes time for him to take his rightful place as king of Pride Rock and Nala finds him. Simba must overthrow Scar, his uncle, who had forced Simba into exile and now rules the pride lands with his pack of hyenas

Glover’s career continues to rise at an astonishing rate. From starting out as a writer on 30 Rock, he created Atlanta and has turned alter-ego, Childish Gambino, into one of the biggest voices in music. As an actor, he’s starred as Troy in Community, Miles Morales in the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series, Aaron Davis in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and played a young Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

James Earl Jones is Mufasa

Remember who you are,” is one of Disney’s most iconic lines, as a down and defeated Simba looks up to the stars in search of his father, Mufasa. Originally voiced by the incomparable James Earl Jones, Mufasa really couldn’t be voiced by anyone else, and Jones is the only original cast member to reprise his Lion King role. Mufasa is a shining light for young Simba, delivering deep and meaningful life lessons before his own life is cruelly snatched from him by Scar. Even after his death, Mufasa continues to advise his son about his place in the circle of life.

Jones is a well-respected character actor but is, of course, best known as the voice of Darth Vader in Star Wars, as well as Mufasa.

Beyoncé Carter-Knowles is Nala

Beyoncé was Jon Favreau’s top pick for the role of Nala, the lioness who is Simba’s best friend through childhood and later on becomes his love interest, and her involvement in The Lion King was confirmed in November 2017. While the role of adult Nala is not necessarily major, having Beyoncé voice her – as well as write songs for the movie – definitely is.

Undoubtedly one of the biggest musical superstars of all time, Beyoncé has sold over 100 million records as a solo artist, plus a further 60 million with Destiny’s Child. Among her many accolades, Beyoncé has won 23 Grammy Awards and is the most nominated female artist in the award’s history.

Chiwetel Ejiofor is Scar

Scar is one of the evilest Disney villains of all time, which therefore makes him one of the best. There’s not much that beats fratricide when it comes to evil deeds, and throwing Mufasa from the top of a cliff as he begs for help is right up there as one of the most traumatic scenes in the Disney canon. Not only that. but Scar then lays the blame on his young nephew, prompting him to flee, and sets a pack of hyenas after the cub. With no one left to stand in his way, Scar takes over as king, with the awful hyenas by his side.

Originally voiced by Jeremy Irons, Scar will this time be brought to life by Chiwetel Ejiofor, a British actor best known for his performance in 12 Years A Slave, and for playing Mordo in Doctor Strange. As well as an impressive filmography, Ejiofor is a highly respected theater actor, and has played Othello three times.

Alfre Woodard is Sarabi

Simba’s mother, Sarabi is so happy and proud of her young cub, and then she loses her mate and her son in one day. Under Scar’s rule, she is treated badly and punished for not hunting enough, despite there being no animals left to hunt as he has destroyed the pride lands.

Sarabi is voiced by Alfre Woodard, who has appeared in (among others) Star Trek: First Contact, Desperate Housewives, 12 Years a Slave (with Chiwetel Ejiofor), A Series of Unfortunate Events, and Luke Cage.

JD McCray is Young Simba and Shahadi Wright Joseph is Young Nala

When The Lion King opens, both Simba and Nala are young cubs and therefore different actors are needed to voice them. JD McCray plays the young Simba. He is 11 years old, and currently stars in The Paynes on The Oprah Winfrey Network. Shahadi Wright Joseph voices Nala. She is 13 years old and best known for playing Zora Wilson/Umbrae in the Jordan Peele movie, Us.

Seth Rogen is Pumbaa

Pumbaa is a lovable, hapless warthog who picks up a nearly dead Simba in the desert. He isn’t very smart, has a very bad gas problem, and likes to eat bugs, but he also has a heart of gold and would do anything for his friends. Pumbaa’s moto is, of course, Hakuna Matata – no worries.

Related: Disney’s Biggest Lion King Mistake Is “Live-Action”

Pumbaa is one half of a comedy duo with the meerkat Timon, and he is voiced by Seth Rogen. Rogen has a long list of comedic acting and voice over accolades, especially his work with Judd Apatow and Evan Goldberg, including Knocked Up, SuperbadThis Is The EndSausage Party and Neighbors, as well as more serious turns in Steve Jobs and prior voiceover experience in Horton Hears a Who and the Kung-Fu Panda movies.

Billy Eichner is Timon

Pumbaa is nothing without Timon, and vise-versa. Timon is a wise-cracking meerkat who thinks he’s smart, but it’s often Pumbaa who’s cleverer. They’ve been living in the jungle together for a long time before they find Simba, and both serve as surrogate parents, raising Simba to adulthood.

Billy Eichner was cast at the same time as Rogen, and the pair have actually worked together before on Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. He has also appeared in the American Horror Story anthology series, and Parks and Recreation, and is the host of Billy on the Street.

John Oliver is Zazu

Zazu is a hornbill who serves as Mufasa’s majordomo. Part of his role also involves him reluctantly having to babysit the young Simba and Nala. He’s begrudgingly fond of them, though, and overjoyed when Simba returns.

Related: The Lion King Remake’s Problem Is That It Isn’t Promising Anything New

Zazu is voiced by John Oliver, of course best known for his news satire show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, which he has hosted since 2014.

John Kani is Rafiki

Rafiki is a wise Mandril and not, as it is said in the original version of The Lion King, a baboon; in the animated version of the movie, Rafiki has a tail, when in fact Mandrills do not. Whether this will be corrected in the new movie or not remains to be seen.. Rafiki is Mufasa’s advisor, and is the one to present the newborn Simba to the animal kingdom.

John Kani is a South African actor, playwright and director, well known for his stage work and as T’Chaka in Black Panther.

Keegan Michael-Key is Kamari, Eric Andre is Azizi, and Florence Kasumba is Shenzi

Of the three hyenas who follow Scar, only Shenzi is a character from the original The Lion King; Kamari and Azizi are newer versions of Banzai and Ed.

Florence Kasumba is known for playing Ayo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Eric Andre plays Mike in the FXX series, Man Seeking Woman, while Keegan Michael-Key is best known as one half of the comedy sketch duo, Key and Peele, as well as appearing in many shows such as Parks and Recreation, Whose Line is it Anyway, and Fargo.

Amy Sedaris is an Unknown Character

Amy Sedaris’ character hasn’t been revealed yet, but it has been reported she is voicing an elephant shrew, in a new role created just for the 2019 The Lion King. For those wondering, an elephant shrew is nothing to do with an elephant, but it is a shrew with a long snout. Sedaris also provides the voice for Princess Carolyn in Bojack Horseman.

Pokemon Sun & Moon Starters: Which Is Best?

Which of the Pokemon Sun And Moon starters are the best? Pokemon has been the ultimate time sink gaming franchise for over two decades now. The series was created back in 1995 and follows human trainers catching creatures dubbed Pokemon and training them to fight one another. What started as a simple role-playing title for the Game Boy soon blossomed into a massive multimedia franchise. The success of the Pokemon games soon led to a hit anime series and multiple toys, comics and, animated movies.

The franchise remains a best-selling juggernaut for publisher Nintendo to this day with recent successes including the Pokemon GO mobile game and Nintendo Switch titles Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Let’s Go, Eevee! The franchise looks set to conquer live-action movies soon too, with Ryan Reynolds lending his voice to the title character in Detective Pikachu, which will almost certainly spawn numerous sequels and spinoffs.

Related: Detective Pikachu May Launch A Pokemon Cinematic Universe

Pokemon Sun And Moon arrived on the Nintendo 3DS in 2016 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the series. The game introduced over 80 new Pokemon for players to catch, in addition to extradimensional creatures dubbed Ultra Beasts. Needless to say, fans loved Pokemon Sun And Moon and it quickly became one of the top-selling Nintendo 3DS titles. In keeping with tradition, the game offers three starter Pokemon for players to pick from. In this case, they can choose between grass-type Pokemon Rowlet, water-type Popplio or fire-type Litten. So the question becomes which Pokemon Sun And Moon starter should players select?

The answer, naturally, needs to take personal playstyle into account, in addition to how useful the starter Pokemon’s evolutionary stages will become later in the game. Players choosing based on looks usually opt for the mega-cute Litten, but since most of the early opponents in Pokemon Sun And Moon are water-type, Litten can struggle early on. That said, Litten’s later forms Torracat and Incineroar even it out to be one of the strongest Pokemon overall.

Rowlet is typically seen as the easiest for players to start out with, especially with the amount of Bug and water-type Pokemon found in Sun And Moon, but Rowlet’s weaknesses only become more apparent as the game progresses. The water-type Popplio is quite cute and has a good mixture of strengths and weaknesses and like Litten evolves to become a more powerful creature. Litten and Popplio are typically considered the best Pokemon Sun And Moon starters, but while Litten has something of a tough time in the beginning, many players feel its the best Pokemon to take through the game.

Each Hogwarts Professor And Which House They Belonged To

Sometimes it’s hard to remember that the Hogwarts professors in Harry Potter were once students. Especially the older teachers such as Dumbledore. It’s hard to ever imagine them as young, but they were all students once, and when they were, they were sorted into Hogwarts Houses just as everyone else in the books is.

How good is your knowledge about the series? Do you know which house each professor was in, or can you guess from their personality? Some are easy to guess because the house traits are so prominent, but some are a little more difficult. But don’t get too cocky, some are super surprising.

10. Albus Dumbledore: Gryffindor

Via: The Independent

Dumbledore is one of those people who could convincingly be in any house (except maybe Hufflepuff). He’s brave, but he’s also resourceful and ambitious, even manipulative. He’s definitely very clever. But, when he was 11 and sat under the Sorting Hat, it decided that he was best suited to Gryffindor and his bravery trumped all else.

That makes sense. Some people show traits from multiple houses, and although Dumbledore is definitely one of those, his passion and courage make him a Gryffindor. Like I said though, I probably wouldn’t have argued with the books if they had later revealed he was actually a Slytherin…

RELATED: 10 Craziest Theories About Aurelius Dumbledore

9. Minerva McGonagall: Gryffindor

Via: The Mary Sue

Minerva McGonagall was a hatstall, according to J.K. Rowling. A hatstall means that she fit directly into two houses and the Sorting Hat had to make a quick call, even though either would have been the right answer. She was a hatstall between Gryffindor and Ravenclaw, which makes sense. She doesn’t suffer fools gladly and is extremely intelligent, with a dry wit to her sure to make people laugh.

Ultimately though, her fiery nature makes me think that Gryffindor was absolutely the right call for her. She’s also extremely passionate about the house, clearly delighted whenever they win a Quidditch game and devastated when they lose house points.

8. Filius Flitwick: Ravenclaw

Via: Pottermore

Head of Ravenclaw is Filius Flitwick. We don’t see very much of him throughout the series; we only know that he teaches Charms and is head of Ravenclaw, so we can reasonably assume he’s very creative and intelligent since those are the prominent traits of that house.

He also seems willing to fight for what’s right. He enters the battle of Hogwarts more reluctantly than say, McGonagall, but he does so happily; meaning that although he’s a Ravenclaw, that doesn’t mean he isn’t brave or loyal. It just means that his intelligence outshines everything else. Seems like a lot of these professors could convincingly be in a couple of the houses…

RELATED: Harry Potter: 15 Things You Didn’t Know About House Ravenclaw

7. Pomona Sprout: Hufflepuff

Via: Pottermore

Professor Sprout teaches Herbology in the books and is head of Hufflepuff. Hufflepuffs are often misjudged when it comes to the series. Because their traits aren’t as fiery or obvious as some of the other houses, they’re dismissed as being the house people are sorted into just because they don’t fit elsewhere. This, however, just isn’t true.

Hufflepuffs are loyal and kind. They stayed to fight at the Battle of Hogwarts because they knew it was the right thing to do and took no convincing, even though bravery isn’t one of their listed traits. They’re not more intelligent than Ravenclaw or courageous than Gryffindor, but their traits are amazing in their own right.

6. Severus Snape: Slytherin

Via: Hello Giggles

Then there’s Snape, head of Slytherin. There tends to be an assumption that most of Slytherin House is evil and for a while in the books, Snape did nothing to disprove this. The truth is that Slytherins aren’t inherently evil, though. They’re resourceful and ambitious, and the latter means that they sometimes come across as cutthroat. So yes, the evil dark wizards do tend to come out of Slytherin because of these traits, but that doesn’t mean they’re all evil.

And as it turns out, Snape wasn’t — even if he was an unpleasant bully to be around. He wasn’t anything like Voldemort, but I still don’t exactly love him. Sorry, Rowling.

RELATED: Harry Potter: 20 Things Wrong With Snape We All Choose To Ignore

5. Remus Lupin: Gryffindor

Via: Vanity Fair

Remus Lupin was only a teacher at Hogwarts for one year, thanks to the curse on the Defence Against The Dark Arts position. However, as he was one of the best teachers that Hogwarts ever saw, he deserves a mention here.

Remus could also have been a convincing Ravenclaw but instead, he was put in Gryffindor with the rest of his Marauder friends. Remus fought in the war against Voldemort bravely while facing his own troubles every month; namely, the fact that he was a werewolf and had to undergo an extremely painful transformation when the full moon was out.

4. Horace Slughorn: Slytherin

Via: Pottermore

Horace Slughorn is an example of a Slytherin a little different from Snape. He’s not so ambitious that he’s deeply unpleasant to others, he’s just dismissive of those he doesn’t find worthy of his time. When he appears in Half-Blood Prince, he’s very interested in Harry because of his fame, just as he was in Tom Riddle.

He’s by no means a bully though, and as the books go on, he becomes willing to do the right thing. He even mentions a fondness for Harry’s mother who was Muggle-born, proving that not all Slytherins are prejudiced against those they consider to be of lesser blood.

RELATED: Harry Potter: The 20 Most Powerful Slytherin Students, Officially Ranked

3. Gilderoy Lockhart: Ravenclaw… Yes, Really

Via: Pottermore

This is one that I really can’t get over.

Gilderoy Lockhart is… pretty much an idiot. The only thing he seems to be good at is memory charms, erasing the memories of great witches and wizards, and taking credit for their achievements. He’s not creative enough to make up his own stories, nor is he witty enough to make anyone like him. The only people who seem endeared by him at all are people with crushes on him because he’s good-looking; his personality leaves a lot to be desired.

And yet, he was in Ravenclaw when he was in school, according to J.K. Rowling. This one needs some explaining if you ask me…

2. Sybill Trelawney: Ravenclaw

Via: The Leaky Cauldron

Sybill Trelawney was also in Ravenclaw. This might seem surprising at first glance. She drinks too much, most of what she says isn’t at all correct, and she doesn’t seem to have her life together. Funny enough, Ravenclaws are associated with being practical and level-headed.

It is, however, a little more believable than Lockhart for the sheer reason that Trelawney’s claims about being a Seer weren’t actually false. She did make a couple of real prophecies, so it wasn’t total rubbish that she believed herself to be able to see the future.

Still, she’s definitely not someone who’s an example of a typical Ravenclaw.

RELATED: Harry Potter: The 30 Most Powerful Hogwarts Students, Officially Ranked

1. Rubeus Hagrid: Gryffindor

Via: Pottermore

Hagrid was eventually given the Care of Magical Creatures professor job at Hogwarts, despite having been expelled from the school when he was a student. And boy, does he deserve to work there despite his expulsion.

Hagrid is a Gryffindor alumnus, and unlike a lot of the other professors, this seems to be the only house that would adequately fit him. He’s eagerly brave, willing to do what’s right, and seems to care deeply and passionately about people. Hagrid is one of the best people among the professors and although a little clumsy and tactless, is very well-meaning, and this is what makes him perfect for his house.

Battlefield V Gets Microtransactions Next Month Which Explains Its Grind Issues

In an effort to avoid the issues of many other recent Electronic Arts published games, developer DICE was able to release Battlefield V without any sort of loot boxes, DLC packs, or season passes. Instead, its microtransactions for cosmetics would provide a long-tail of revenue but were not implemented at launch to avoid any negativity surrounding their inclusion.

That’s a trick played by the Forza franchise and several other triple-A releases, where they launch without any sort of real-money micotransactions until all the reviews come out, and after the launch hype settles in, so to does the nickel and diming begin. For Battlefield V, DICE says this was in an effort for players to acclimatize themselves to the cosmetic progression system in Battlefield V.

Related: Battlefield V Early Discounts Punish Loyal Fans Who Already Bought It

In January 2019 however, microtransactions will be added to Battlefield V, according to a retailer leaked which revealed for Xbox One a $49.99 purchase for 6000 of the premium Battlefield coins.

Dropping random loot box (i.e. gambling) and DLC pricing was a great thing for Battlefield, but DICE and EA are botching this up on two fronts.

1. Battlefield V is Still Missing Content

Battlefield V was rushed and didn’t launch with all of its advertised content, both big and small. During its launch event, and during a preview session with devs for us and other outlets before its announcement, a four-player co-op campaign (“Combined Arms”) was advertised as a mode that could generate objectives and narratives for players. A battle royale mode was also teased, and later revealed as “Firestorm” but it too is not available until late spring at the earliest.

There are also some core features missing from gameplay and progression in the game, including the ability to drag downed enemies (meaning DICE straight up didn’t finish designing gameplay before release) and the cosmetics for vehicles didn’t launch until Battlefield V’s Tides of War live service began a few weeks after launch.

Microtransactions are being implemented before the game is “complete” in a traditional sense and this is partly due to how rushed BFV is. Even rival Black Ops 4 had a three-year dev cycle. BFV had two years by comparisons since Battlefield 1 launched. Battlefield V is great, it’s just not finished.

2. Battlefield V is holding back company coins from players

The max level cap in Battlefield V is 50 and a lot of players, myself included, reached that in a few short weeks. When at that level, rewards for the in-game Company Coin currency come to a halt. Given that we’re weeks away now from a premium currency release, the timing of this yet-to-be-fixed issue is not good from an optics standpoint. The community management team has been mostly silent to updating players on this earnings problem (and issues surrounding advertised features not yet delivered and weak deluxe edition rewards). DICE likely doesn’t want players being able to buy all the cosmetics with their in-game earnings, when real money will be available soon.

We’ve reached out to EA’s PR team on Battlefield V for comment on the premium currency release in January and the issues surround company coin.

Black Ops 4 Beginners Guide: How to Play (& Win) in Zombies Mode

The release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 brings with it a variety of different gameplay options for players. Although plenty of eyes seem to be on the title’s battle royale mode, Blackout, the traditional multiplayer modes like Team Deathmatch are still available. Also returning is the franchise’s Zombies game mode, this time with more options than ever before.

Indeed, Zombies is something of a different beast this time around. The mode comes complete with three maps, with two of them on the expansive side to boot. As such, new players might find it a little bit daunting, particularly given the intricacies of the game mode in comparison to some of the more simplistic elements of Call of Duty.

Related: Black Ops 4 Blackout Guide: Pro Tips For Battle Royale Beginners

Thankfully, new players can get a head start thanks to this guide. Read on to learn how to play Zombies mode, as well as some good strategies to help get that first win in what can be a tense and difficult part of Call of Duty.

What’s New In Zombies Mode?

This time around, Zombies is huge, with three different scenarios to choose from. Two of these revolve around Scarlett Rhodes and her band of misfits, with Voyage of Despair taking place aboard an RMS Titanic that had to handle a zombie threat alongside hitting an iceberg, while IX takes the team back in time to face gladiatorial combat in a Roman coliseum. Alongside this, there’s also the option to play Blood of the Dead, with the return of Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo, and Nikolai.

Within that, the core gameplay loop remains the same. Survive waves of the zombie horde, unlocking areas of the map as and when the points are available, as the fight gets progressively tougher and tougher. This time around, though, it’s fair to say that the levels feel a little more maze-like and expansive, so make sure to be aware of the surroundings at all times to stop from getting stuck in a bottleneck.

Prioritize Your Points

As always, using points effectively is extremely important in Zombies. First and foremost, opening up areas of the map is a given, but more pressing is how the player uses their points towards perks and weapons. Although in early waves things like shotguns and pistols are all well and good, it’s important to aim to get weapons that have a faster fire rate and (most importantly) a faster reload rate as the game progresses. As such, look to weapons like the Spitfire or GKS to be most effective.

It’s also very important to improve the power of weapons as the game goes on. The most obvious way to do this is to keep returning to the Pack-a-Punch Machines once available, which give a 25% boost with each use. This does come at a considerable cost of 2,500 points per use, but it’s an undeniable way to get that firepower up.

Keep Moving

Staying static for too long in Zombies this time around is a recipe for disaster, as there is always the very real threat of being overrun by the horde. Whereas previous games could work with players cementing a position with a strong defensive line, at least for early portions of the game it’s recommended to keep moving. Not only does it avoid the issue of getting stuck in one place, but it also will keep players refreshed when it comes to where the different unlock options are in the map.

Keeping space from zombies is important for reasons other than this, too. Should one member of the team fall, they’ll have to be revived, and with a slightly longer revive time in Black Ops 4 it’s more vital than ever to have enough room to revive a teammate without having chunks taken out by an unseen zombie. This is particularly true when it comes to those special zombies that attack, so always keep an eye out.

Use Your Perks

In Black Ops 4‘s Zombies mode, players are able to use class customization for the first time. This isn’t just there for show, either, as a good grasp of what perks are available and how to use them can make the difference between success and failure. What’s more, the perks that can be chosen can actually work well for a variety of different play styles.

Those who want both power and speed could choose the likes of Deadshot Dealer, which automatically targets the zombie’s head when aiming down the sights, as well as Stamin-Up for a permanent boost to movement speed. Meanwhile, the frost explosion created by Winter’s Wail and the increased ammunition of Bandolier Bandit work well for those whose last stand may come from a more secure position. In essence, it comes down to how an individual best plays the game, and it’s good to have a variety of perks in the team to make the most of these options.

Work Together

As always, teamwork is the key to having an easier run of things in Zombies. Although it’s possible to play the game solo, this is always a challenge, and to help with this there are now bots to play with. Even so, it’s best to play with other human players, and as such taking on the game as a team of four is recommended.

It’s not just a matter of getting other human beings involved in the zombie slaughter, however. Working together cooperatively is key; don’t stray too far from one another, watch out for any fallen that need reviving, and potentially coordinate the perks used to make sure that everyone has bases covered for any eventuality. That way, the team should be set for what the game throws at them.

With these tips in mind, players should now have a solid framework to build on to get through the game’s Zombies mode. Whether taking a trip back in time to arena combat or trying to fight off zombified versions of Jack and Rose, Zombies is always a challenge for players, but with this guidance in mind players should be able to have a fighting chance of beating the supernatural threat.

How Game of Thrones Prevented Set Photos From Spoiling the Series Finale

When it comes to avoiding spoilers for Game of Thrones, filmmakers are taking no chances for season 8. The story of Game of Thrones started in 1996 when author George R.R. Martin published his book titled A Game Of Thrones, which stands as his first entry in his A Song of Ice and Fire series. His series of novels is what HBO decided to adapt into Game of Thrones which came on the air in 2011.

The show has been running for seven seasons, but Game of Thrones very quickly became one of HBO’s most popular TV shows. The series has a truly ensemble cast including actors like Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, and Lena Headey. All of these characters survived the end of season 7, but it is up in the air whether they will survive the eighth and final season. Thankfully, spoilers for the upcoming season haven’t leaked yet, which is because HBO is taking special precautions to ensure that doesn’t happen.

According to EW, HBO is using new high-tech instruments to make sure drones cannot fly over filming locations called a “Drone Killer“. Previously, Game of Thrones has had leaks due to flying drones and even actual photographersAs explained by actress Sophie Turner at New York Comic Con, “If a drone flies above sets, there’s a thing that can kill the drones, which is really cool. It creates a field around it and the drones just drop. It’s very X-Men.” While this new development will no doubt help contain spoilers on the highly anticipated season, the show has still had trouble in the past keeping elements of the plot a secret.

Last August, hackers stole 1.5 terabytes of data from HBO which contained Game of Thrones scripts as well as the cast’s personal information. The leak was a big blow to HBO as people were less inclined to tune in if the episodes had been spoiled. The filmmakers behind the newest season seem to not be playing games when it comes to season 8. In addition to this, the Game of Thrones scripts now supposedly vanish after the scenes have been filmed. It was also rumored that the show would film multiple endings, but those rumors have since been debunked by the cast.

Even though Game of Thrones is still quite a ways away, the eighth season is looking to be the biggest one yet (despite being the shortest in number of episodes). After all, this season will feature the biggest battle in Game of Thrones history. The series will also have to effectively tie up each of the characters storylines and finally reveal who will sit atop the Iron Throne. Regardless of what HBO has in store for fans, they are doing everything they can to ensure that this season doesn’t get spoiled early.
