With the return of Games of Thrones fast approaching, HBO has finally released its first featurette containing an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the highly anticipated third season. Unlike the teaser released last month, these clip offers new footage from the upcoming season, as well as interviews with the cast and producers to give us an idea of what's to come when the series returns next year. And, as can be expected, shit's about to get pretty real in Westeros.

You can check out the featurette above. The new season of Game of Thrones is set to premiere on March 31, 2013.
