The pilot[1] of Bloodmoon was filmed, but never publicly screened. It was written by Jane Goldman and directed by S.J. Clarkson. Had the series been ordered by HBO, it would have been the first episode of the first season of Bloodmoon, and the first episode of the series overall.

Premise[]

Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: From the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers,[sic] the mysteries of the East, to the Starks of legend… it’s not the story we think we know.[2]

In the books[]

At the time of the pilot's production, George R.R. Martin had only published about eight lines of text regarding the time period of the proposed series, leaving much of the worldbuilding to Jane Goldman.[1]

In the books, Leaf did not live during the Age of Heroes, being only roughly 200 years old at the time of A Dance with Dragons. Furthermore the naming convention used for Children of the Forest (Leaf, Cloud, Lake) is not accurate to the books, as these are nicknames made up by Bran and Meera, not their actual names, which are described as "too long for human tongues."

In The World of Ice & Fire, the Long Night is said to have taken place between 6,000 and 8,000 years prior to the main series. In Bloodmoon, these events transpire less than 5,000 years before Game of Thrones.[4] A sept is depicted in storyboard art from the pilot's production,[11] which would be in direct contradiction to established lore, as the Faith of the Seven was introduced to Westeros during the coming of the Andals, two thousand years after the Long Night.[26] It would appear that the timeline between the Long Night and the coming of the Andals was shortened to an extent where the events occurred in the same time period, which would explain why the Casterlys - living south of the Neck - would worship the Seven. Both in the books and in current show canon, the Casterlys had died out long before the Andals came to Westeros, and so would not have even been aware the Faith of the Seven existed.[27]
