game of thrones season 7 images

A few months ago, we heard that the dragons in Game of Thrones season 7 would be the size of 747 jet airliners. Now, a batch of images from the penultimate season of HBO’s flagship series have revealed the dragons and they don’t appear to be quite as big as 747s. However, they’re still big enough to stomp an entire army into red goo and burn their remains into a fine ash, so let’s not get too caught up on the little details.

This photo is one of several Game of Thrones season 7 images to arrive today and the others show off the other corners of Westeros: snow, scheming, and scowling. The usual.

First of all, A Song of Ice and Fire creator George R.R. Martin wants us to know that there aren’t four Game of Thrones spin-offs in the works at HBO. There are five. Second of all, he wants us to know that they aren’t “spin-offs,” as they will not involve any character introduced in the first series. Third of all, he promises that he’s still working on that sixth book. For real.

While we’ll take umbrage with Martin’s definition of spin-off (the phrase has evolved to mean any kind of television follow-up!), the whole blog post where he talks about the spin-offs, his involvement in each and every one of them, and their place on the Game of Thrones timeline is good, enlightening, and very entertaining stuff.

game of thrones season 7 jaime and cersei

We’ve been hearing rumblings of HBO wanting a Game of Thrones spin-off for years now, but with the network’s flagship series ending in 2018, those rumblings have been getting louder. And now they’ve reached a dull roar…and by dull roar, I mean it has been revealed that not one, but four spin-off series are currently in development, with four different writing teams leading the charge.

I know that Game of Thrones has never been shy about running its characters though with a dozen sharp blades before sewing their severed head onto the body of their dead Direwolf, but this is a different kind of overkill.

The sixth season of Game of Thrones concluded with a massive war about to open up on four fronts, with the living battling the living as the undead waited to make their move. And then, to rub salt in the wound, winter finally arrived. After all, the Stark words always come true, eventually.

The chill of winter can be seen all over the first official Game of Thrones season 7 photos, which feature cast members bundled under heavier coats and cloaks than usual.

Do you see what you’ve done to us, HBO? By delaying the start of Game of Thrones season 7 until later in the summer, we’re forced to pick through your video promos like hungry stray dogs in search of our next meal, desperate to find something, anything, to keep ourselves occupied. Winter has come, indeed.

I kid because I love. In fact, I love so much that I’ve gone through a new trio of HBO videos to pick out the shots that reveal the Game of Thrones cast in their season 7 costumes, some of which are brand new and some of which say a great deal about where we find these characters in the penultimate season.

Game of Thrones season 6 blooper reel

At the end of the first season of Game of Thrones, three tiny dragons were born and they’re so cute and you just wanted to hold them and hug them. Then the dragons grow up a bit and became dog-sized and they were still so cute and you still just wanted to hold them and hug them. Then they grew up to be about the size of automobiles and…well, they were still so cute and you still just wanted to hold them and hug them.

Well, pretty soon, our dreams of holding and hugging Daenerys’ three dragon companions will soon be coming to an end because they’ll be as big as jet airliners in Game of Thrones season 7.

game of thrones final season

The upcoming seventh season of Game of Thrones will consist of only seven episodes, which is a bit of a disappointment after six years of 10-episode seasons that already felt all-too-brief. And now, courtesy of the series creators and showrunners, we know that the eighth and final season will be even shorter.
