The celebratory event includes an interactive Game of Thrones spotlight page on the HBO Max streaming service, live now, with over 150 videos of behind-the-scenes extras, cast interviews, clips, and trailers available to subscribers.
The Iron Anniversary will also host a “MaraThrone” marathon challenge, which kicks off with a marathon of Season 1 on April 10th at 10:00 a.m. ET. Fans will be encouraged to binge-watch episode collections of the show in order to raise money for various charities chosen by the Game of Thrones cast members, including Women for Women International, World Central Kitchen, Conservation International, International Rescue Committee (IRC), UNICEF, FilmAid International, SameYou, Royal Mencap Society, National Urban League, and the Trevor Project.
Later in the month, HBO will surprise three couples who held Westeros-themed weddings with special anniversary gifts, including Thrones-themed barrels of wine, custom chalices, and elaborate cakes designed in partnership with local bakeries. Warner Bros. Consumer Products will also be releasing a new line of tie-in products, including a one-of-a-kind Imperial egg by Fabergé, a collection of Mikkeller beers inspired by the series, and several iron-textured Funko Pop figures.
