Dragons will be the size of planes, 'GOT' director teases

Game of Thrones co-creator wants someone else to handle spin-off series

There will be the dragons of jumbo jet size in the forthcoming seventh season. In fact, they are so big that director Matt Shakman has even compared their size to a plane.

Just for reference, a Boeing 747 has a wingspan of about 224 feet and a height of about 63 feet. Drogon himself probably won't have 660 people on his back, but that's an impressively large creature. If that's true, Season 7 is shaping up to be the most dragon-heavy season of all. Accordingly, Viserion, Rhaegal, and Drogon are all being upgraded from big to big-ass for season six. At the end of last season, Daenerys' (Emilia Clarke) dragons and her huge army were finally on the way to Westeros, where Cersei (Lena Headey) is now Queen after the death of her children.

Adding more to the updates, Ed Sheeran will be making a guest appearance in the next season of Game of Thrones as confirmed by Fansided.

"The dragons this year are the size of 747s ..." HBO will soon give us the penultimate Season 7, and Daenerys Targaryen's (Emilia Clarke) babies are much, much bigger now. The final season likely will air in 2018.

(Facebook/Game of Thrones)"Game of Thrones" returns with season 7 this July 16 on HBO.

First, according to the latest Game of Thrones spoilers from TV Guide, one of the biggest things we'll be seeing this year is the number of episodes will be reduced. Shankman is reportedly directing the fourth and fifth episodes of the seven-episode seventh season.
