The first look at Daenerys’ fully-grown dragons in Game of Thrones‘ upcoming seventh season has been revealed. If there’s been one thing that fans have been waiting years to see Game of Thrones do too, it’s let Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and her allies finally cross the sea in their attempt to take over the kingdom of Westeros. That’s understandable since, for almost the entirety of the show up until this point, Dany has been talking about reclaiming the Iron Throne for the Targaryen royal family, spending years letting her dragons grow and work on building up an army of allies capable of helping her succeed at that very mission.
So it was much to the joy and excitement of those very fans that Game of Thrones‘ tumultuous sixth season ended with one of its most striking and chilling images to date, as Dany and her massive army began sailing across the sea, eyes forward, with her trio of giant and fearsome dragons flying overhead. Game of Thrones looks to be living up on the promise of that final moment as well, with this brand new image from its highly-anticipated seventh season.
Revealed online by EW, the image itself offers fans their first real look at what Dany’s fully-grown dragons will look like in the show. It had previously been teased that the dragons would be the same size of some notable aircraft bombers, and judging by the sheer size and wingspan of the dragon in this image, that appears to be an accurate comparison. Now, check out the image for yourself in the space below:
Surrounded by scorched Earth, with Dany riding on his back and dozens of battling soldiers scattered around them, it feels safe to say that this new season of Game of Thrones will, at the very least, deliver in some big ways with its battle sequences. As Dany begins her conquest of Westeros, one can only imagine what kind of battles she’ll be involved and leading the charge in as she moves further and further into the land.
That’s not much of a surprise since, if there’s one thing that Game of Thrones has always been good at, it’s delivering its climactic confrontations and battles with an appropriately massive scope and level of dramatic weight. And with Cersei (Lena Headey) now the designated Queen of Westeros and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) the King in the North, the eventual collision between Game of Thrones‘ three main leaders is shaping up to be one of this season’s most anticipated moments. Of course, as Jon Snow well knows, Dany isn’t the only force of nature coming to reclaim what she believes to be hers in Westeros, and seeing how exactly the three World Powers both clash and work together, could make this season one of Game of Thrones‘ most epic and unpredictable seasons to date.
Game of Thrones season 7 premieres July 16th on HBO.
