    British Town Gets Game of Thrones Name Change, Becomes Kings Landing Ahead of DVD Release

    Game of Thrones HBO

    Attention all Game of Thrones fans!

    The British town of Kings Langley is going to be renamed after the HBO series' capital city of Kings Landing for a week in February.

    The switch will coincide with Game of Thrones' DVD release on Feb. 18.

    According to Radio Times, "a producer for the hit HBO show heard the town listed as a stop while waiting for a train at London's Euston station and was inspired to instigate the name change."

    Kings Langley is a historic town just 20 miles northwest of London and is expected to get a full makeover within the next few weeks.

    Per the Times report, the rural village will have themed events throughout the celebratory week.

    And shortly before the DVD release, HBO will be launching the fourth season of the fantasy series.

    So what can diehard fans expect to see this time around?

    "We have another royal wedding, this one is not red; this one is a different color," author George R.R. Martin told E! News of the upcoming season. "We have the introduction of some great new characters. We finally introduce one of the most popular characters from the books: Prince Oberon Martell. The Red Viper of Dorne will be introduced for the first time and there will be some other new characters that I think the fans will like."

    Another wedding?! Let's hope it's nothing like the last one…
