Dragons will be “the size of 747s” in Game of Thrones season 7


With each new season of Game of Thrones, Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons grow in size. In season 6, all three were huge, with Drogon being the biggest. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, director Matt Shakman (one of four directors helming episodes for season 7) revealed that the trend will continue.

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

That is a scary prospect for Daenerys’ enemies. Just to let you know exactly how large a Boeing 747 actually is, the plane itself is 230 feet long and has a 210 feet wingspan. That’s big, folks.

EW goes on to say that because the dragons are going to be so large this season, and with the added firepower, battles involving them will most likely play out differently than in past seasons.

We’re not completely sure what that means, but with dragons this size, it’s hard to imagine any man-made machine bringing them down. So now the real question is: How long before Dany ascends the Iron Throne with the great beasts at the head of her army? Let’s hope we get to see lots of dragon fire and carnage in season 7.
