‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 Director Says Dragons Now Airplane-Size

Game of Thrones Season 7 Dragon Size 747
HBO

Game of Thrones fans never lack for dragon appreciation, but there are diminishing returns to their escalation in size, and difficulty to portray onscreen. Leave it to Season 7 to make them even bigger, now estimating Drogon, Viserion and Rhaegal to be the size of commercial jets.

First-time Game of Thrones director and Always Sunny vet Matt Shankman shared the tidbit with Entertainment Weekly, albeit without specifying how (or where) Daenerys might use her now airplane-sized babies. Worth noting, EW lists the airplane size with a 210′ wingspan, while you-know-who had the biggest growth spurt:

The dragons this year are the size of 747s. Drogon is the biggest of the bunch — his flame is 30-feet in diameter!

Don’t forget, series creator George R.R. Martin previously shared an image of a fully-grown dragon from The World of Ice and Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the World of Game of Thrones, looking about on par with a small airplane. Martin’s size estimates have often varied from HBO’s, as we’ve seen with the scaled-down Iron Throne before.

Elsewhere of Game of Thrones Season 7, now set for a July 16 premiere, a list of directors for the year has been announced along with rumors of some major set pieces and battles. Harry Potter star Jim Broadbent gave us surprising details of his “significant” role, while several notable returns have likely been revealed, along with unexpected MLB and musical cameos, and one recast.

We’ll hear more of Game of Thrones Season 7 in the coming weeks, but how much dragon is too much?
