We’re roughly a month away from the hotly anticipated Season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones, and to whet our appetite for the show’s return, HBO has released a behind-the-scenes look and a new batch of pics.
First things first: the featurette. Titled “Inside Game of Thrones: A Story in Special Effects,” the short but interesting video features an interview with special effects supervisor Sam Conway. Most of the footage seen below comes from Season 6, but there are snippets of footage from two epic battles we’ll get to see in the seven-episode seventh season. According to Watchers on the Wall, one is taking place on land, the other at sea.
As for the new images, there’s nothing too spoilery, but we do get to see more of our personal favorites, including Jon (Kit Harington), Arya (Maisie Williams), Dany (Emilia Clarke) arriving at Dragonstone, Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Cersei (Lena Headey), Samwell (John Bradley), Gilly (Hannah Murray), Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright), Sansa (Sophie Turner), Sandor (Rory McCann), Beric (Richard Dormer), Tormund (Kristofer Hivju) and MANY MOAR! Game of Thrones returns July 16 on HBO.
