YouTube Filmmakers Re-Imagine ‘Game of Thrones’ Set in High School

What if George R.R. Martin had written his epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire, for a young-adult audience? A group of YouTube filmmakers has launched a comedic web series called “School of Thrones.”

In this project, the Game of Thrones characters have been re-imagined as teenage students who attend Westeros Valley High School. We’ve embedded the first full episode above–what do you think?

The series premiere episode, “Prom Night Is Coming,” was released on March 10th and has already attracted more than 417,000 views. Episode two will be posted up on March 17th and episode three will follow on March 24th. (via Jezebel)
