R A U C O U S director Matt Shakman sits down with Entertainment Weekly to talk about his debut helming "Game of Thrones" Season 7. Daenerys’ trio of beasts head to Westeros as part of the dragon queen’s invading fleet, and the creatures are more fearsome than ever before.
“The dragons this year are the size of 747s,” Matt tells EW. “Drogon is the biggest of the bunch — his flame is 30-feet in diameter!”
Matt is one of four directors helming next season (the others are GoT vets Alan Taylor, Jeremy Podeswa, and Mark Mylod). He was probably being at least somewhat approximate when comparing the dragons to the venerable Boeing airliner. But for reference, a 747 is about 230 feet long with a 210 feet wingspan. So, really big.
