GOT7 | Game Of Thrones Season 7 Everything we know, till now

TVs best show is going to telecast soon and this time it is even better. The start of a new Game of Thrones season can feel a little like the beginning of a new school year: You know everyone’s faces and most people’s names, but you can’t quite remember what everyone’s been up to. Fortunately, the task is slightly easier this time around in GOT7.Watch official GOT7 trailers from here and here.

QUICK FACTS ABOUT GOT7

GOT7 release date: July 16, 2017 (US), July 17, 2017 (UK)

Directors: Alan Taylor, Jeremy Podeswa, Mark Mylod, Matt Shakman

Cast: Alfie Allen, John Bradley, Gwendoline Christie, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Nathalie Emmanuel, Aidan Gillen, Iain Glen, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Conleth Hill, Rory McCain, Sophie Turner

Every other season has debuted around April, yet season seven won’t start until July. Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss explained: “We’re starting a bit later because at the end of this season. ’Winter is here’ -So we kind of pushed everything down the line. So we could get some gray weather even in the sunnier places that we shoot.”

Structure of episodes of GOT7

While other seasons have been made up of 10 episodes, season seven will contain just seven. But overall expense on the season is same. So, it means more money per episode. While earlier episodes were 50 minutes long, most of the episodes are longer than the previous. With the season finale of 90 minutes long. Due to show’s conclusion and fewer episodes, episodes are much faster.

HBO has already set a date for the filming of GoT8. Expect that to start in September, and to be six episodes long (likely with a feature-length opener AND finale). Well, it certainly implies that 7 and 8 will feel like one long season, with a big break half way through. What we know for sure is that there are only 13 episodes of Game of Thrones left in total, which is a sobering thought.

It’s looking like we could be in for another long wait after that, too, with the eighth and final season possibly delayed until 2019.

 

New characters?Cameos?

Last year, a casting call went out asking for numerous new cast members, including a general, priest, warrior, gate guard, city guard etc. All thanks to Cersei’s wildfire explosion.

As Jim Broadbent said, he will be playing an old professor. He did five episode with one major scene in each. Fans believe he will be playing Maester Marwyn, a character strongly associated with Samwell Tarly and possibly Daenerys further down the line.

Freddie Stroma may have played Sam’s jock younger brother, but Tom Hopper will continue as the character, hinting at big things to come for the Tarly story.

Mark Gatiss has confirmed that he will be back for season seven, featuring in two upcoming episodes. He plays Tycho Nestoris the Iron Banker in the series, a member of the Iron Bank.Fans speculate that, with Gatiss’s return, the Iron Bank will venture to Westeros to get the money they are owed by The Crown.

Perhaps the most unlikely cast addition is Ed Sheeran – yes, that Ed Sheeran – who’ll be making a guest appearance, following in the footsteps of fellow musicians. Sheeran’s confirmed that he will be in a brief cameo and that his character won’t be subjected to a gruesome demise. Instead, he’ll feature in a short scene where he serenades Arya Stark.

David Bradley – who plays Walder Frey, the Lord who assisted the Lannisters in massacring the Starks in season three’s infamous ‘Red Wedding’ episode. He will apparently be back for season seven despite being killed by Arya. Considering Arya’s now a dab hand at Faceless antics, it seems she’ll be putting those skills to good use by ‘becoming’ Frey.

Benjen/Coldhands actor Joseph Mawle will also seemingly be back. He has been photographed in Northern Ireland alongside Iain Glen (Jorah) and Kristofer Hivju (Tormund).

Three Stark children – Sansa, Arya, and Bran – will be reuniting in Winterfell, but not on good terms. Apparently, there will be a conflict between Arya and Sansa, who have been living completely different lives for numerous years.

We’re all expecting Jon Snow and Daenerys to meet at some point during the series. Images of the two together have been shared, confirming the phenomenal meeting.

Dany finally set sail for Westeros – rallying the combined forces of the Unsullied, the Dothraki and the Ironborn, with Tyrion, Varys, Missandei, Olenna Tyrell, the women of Dorne and her dragons all at her side. It looks as though she’ll be retaking the castle at Dragonstone. It is a fortress built by her House Targaryen prior to their fall in Robert’s Rebellion.

Meanwhile leaked pics show Pilou Asbaek – aka Euron Greyjoy – arriving in King’s Landing. He seems to have formed an alliance with Cersei. His ‘gift’ for her is both Yara Greyjoy and Ellaria Sand as prisoners.

Jorah Mormont may have cured himself of Greyscale (and the outstretched hand in the trailer seems to suggest this). Good for him. This leaked set story shows him totally free of any signs of the disease.

Fan fantasy about GOT7

The childhood prophecy: Cersei will be killed by her “valonqar,” or little brother. A lot of people have taken that to mean Tyrion, who’s currently en route with Dany’s army to  Westeros. However, he’s not Cersei’s only little brother. Jaime, Cersei’s twin, was born a few minutes after her. Fans, meanwhile, have speculated that Cersei might meet her end at Jon Snow’s hand – or that The Hound might (indirectly). Whatever happens, even Headey is convinced that her character is doomed to die before the series is over.

Expecting Cleganebowl for settling it once for all

Cleganebowl is one of the biggest Game of Thrones theories, and it’s still very possible that we’ll see it. The Hound is currently teamed up with Beric Dondarrion and his Brotherhood Without Banners. They were originally sent by Robert Baratheon to kill Gregor Clegane (in the books). Wouldn’t it be delicious if they finally fulfilled this mission in season 7? The fans demand it, and the showrunners are listening.
