By the end of Game of Thrones Season 5, Drogon the dragon was big enough for Daenerys to ride off into the sunset, or at least into the Dothraki Sea. The show’s SFX professionals have assured fans that the dragons will double again in size again come Season 6, which generally speaking means they’re gonna get really freaking huge. (One wonders if this assertion applies only to Drogon, though. According to A Song of Ice and Fire mythology, dragons grow but little, if at all, when kept in a confined space, so Rhaegal and Viserion should remain roughly the same size. The TV show might not stick to that rule, though.)
Moviepilot has done a little digging, and concluded that the dragons (or Drogon, at least) will have a wingspan of 120 feet in Season 6. This is based on the assertion that Drogon’s wingspan was 60 feet during the Daznak’s Pit scene in Season 5, for which there is some well-reasoned, if not definitively conclusive, evidence. So: 60 x 2 = 120.
What does that mean visually? According to Moviepilot, it means that Drogon’s wingspan will be roughly equivalent to this 120-foot statue of Mao Zedong.
If you’re going to compare the dragons to something, it might as well be Communist revolutionaries. And in a way, isn’t that exactly what they are?
No, they’re not—that goes nowhere. Anyway, I’m not convinced that Drogon will be quite that big, but we can bet he’ll be a far sight bigger and more deadly when we next see him.
Elsewhere, Kit Harington is giving quotes again. He weighed in after professional footballer Wayne Rooney announced the arrival of his son, whom he named Kit. Digital Spy immediately asked Harrington for comment. “I’m now gonna tell people that Rooney named his baby after me,” said Harington, who is a self-professed “massive Rooney fan.” (Soccer is huge in Europe, a phenomena that remains impenetrable to many Americans.) “I don’t think he did, but it’s nice to think that anyway.”
Between this and the recent BBC Breakfast interview, it seems that Harington is hitting the press trail again, which gives interviewers that many more opportunities to ask whether Jon Snow is coming back.
