Was Thursday, 29 June official World Game of Thrones day?
It should have been because we got see, read and hear so much about the show that we had to find the best way to compress all that information in this roundup for you.
It’s no longer news that GOT’s seventh season will be blessing our screen starting 7 July but what’s news is that the season will be featuring one the longest episodes of the show ever.
How long? 90 minutes.
Showrunners, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff revealed in an interview that “Things are moving faster because in the world of these characters the war that they’ve been waiting for is upon them, the conflicts that have been building the past six years are upon them and those facts give them a sense of urgency that makes them move faster. Trying to fit all of that into just seven episodes means that we’ll also be getting one of the series’ longest episodes ever,”
Two other episodes will be nearing 60 minutes while there will also be a 50-minute episode.
Meanwhile, the cast made for an amazing cover on TIME Magazine’s latest release and there’s no way to get over the sheer beauty.
