Game of Thrones will return for its seventh season next month, and the showrunners are excited for viewers to see the new season. Not only will fans finally see full grown dragons, but the characters of the series will be front and center. The shortened season will not mean the series offers the characters less to do!
Dan Weiss said the following about season seven of the HBO series, per Entertainment Weekly:
“To me what’s most exciting is being able to play interactions between various characters that for years we haven’t been able to play. There’s a whole bunch of reunions and first time meetings that people have been waiting for for a long time and when you put it on paper you just want to do justice to the work that these guys have done building these characters over so many years. You want to give them as much as you can.”
As for the dragons, David Benioff said the following:
“Well about four or five years ago we asked Joe Bauer, our visual effects maestro, if he could show us concept art from like where we were in season 3 to their full size. It was pretty incredible because they grow to an extraordinary extent. I remember thinking, “God that’s going to be complicated as hell to shoot when we finally get there.” But it seemed like one of those uptown problems when you’re in season 3 and just hoping enough people keep watching so that you eventually get to a season 7. Finally this year they’re no longer babies and it makes every scene with them more complicated to shoot. We’re seeing stuff from the visual effects team and every time they’re flying through the screen it’s impossible to take your eyes off them. I’m excited for people to watch it. It kills me that so many people watch the show on their phones because you don’t get the full glory of this on a six-inch screen.”
