Earlier this week, the complete third season of ‘Game of Thrones‘ became available for purchase on Blu-Ray and DVD. With the release of this home video collection, fans of the popular HBO fantasy drama can now prepare for the upcoming fourth season slated to premiere in April. Although, if you haven’t been able to get around to picking it up yet, a few of the special features have made their way online. First, a snippet of the featurette highlighting the Red Wedding was made available. Now, a number of deleted scenes can be viewed as well.
Because George R.R. Martin provided a copious amount of source material, it’s impossible to fit everything into each 10-episode season. However, they definitely shoot more than what appears every week on the hour-long show. Thankfully, special features on the home release are a thing, so fans can enjoy the moments that didn’t make the final cut for one reason or another. But if you didn’t get the chance to pick up your copy yet, you can check out fifteen minutes of deleted scenes right here thanks to io9. This video contains some extra moments featuring characters like Jon Snow, Mance Rayder, Tywin Lannister, Robb Stark, King Joffrey, and more. To see what ended up on the cutting room floor during third season of this acclaimed series, check out the video below:
