Dragons Will be the Size of 747s in Game of Thrones Season 7

The Game of Thrones dragons are going to be the size of 747s in Season 7

Winter is coming, but in Season 7 of the HBO series Game of Thrones, fire and ice are going to battle it out, as evidenced in the recent Facebook release date event. We’re only going to get seven episodes instead of the usual ten when the series returns this summer. Maybe that’s why the dragons are going to be so much bigger this time around. At the end of last season, Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) dragons and her immense army were finally on the way to Westeros, where Cersei (Lena Headey) is now Queen after the death of her children. The Night King’s (Vladimir Furdik in Season 6) army is heading south, and a battle appears to be imminent. We saw the dragons on their way with their mom, but apparently they’re going to be huge when we see them again.

According to EW, the Game of Thrones dragons are going to be the size of airplanes in Season 7. “The dragons this year are the size of 747s,” director Matt Shakman told the site. “Drogon is the biggest of the bunch — his flame is 30-feet in diameter!” As the site explains, that’s 230 feet long with a 210 feet wingspan. Shakman will direct episodes this season along with Alan Taylor, Jeremy Podeswa, and Mark Mylod. No news on exactly when they get to that size or if there is a time jump.

Though we don’t know exactly what’s coming (except Winter, of course), Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, tweeted this late last year: “Just finished reading season 7, s**t gets REAL. I’d start preparing yourselves now… scratch that, nothing will prepare you for this… Holy BALLS.”
