‘Game of Thrones’ Brings Dragons to Life in New Season 5 FX Reel
Game of Thrones had itself quite a night at the 2015 Emmy Awards, perhaps less deservedly so than some might think, but at least one aspect never fails to impress. The latest FX reel from the season pulls back the curtain on Game on Thrones’ most dragon-heavy outing yet.
Game of Thrones crew famously joke that dragons eat nothing but money, though that cash seems more and more put to good use with each passing year. Pixomondo released yet another look into Season 5 effects, this time painstakingly sculpting and shading every muscle of Dany’s dragons, whether flying, or tearing some poor Mereenese noble in half. The dragons have only bigger to get, but where Dany’s story goes after last season’s “Dance” is anyone’s guess.
Elsewhere of Game of Thrones Season 6, screen legend Max von Sydow has been cast as the mysterious Three-Eyed Raven to a returning Bran, while Deadwood alum Ian McShane will also appear in a limited, mysterious role, joining Richard E. Grant and The Babadook star Essie Davis as theatre troup players, four notable actors as the Tarly family, and Borgen star Pilou Asbæk as fan-favorite Euron Greyjoy. Apart from a list of directors, debate continually rages as to whether Kit Harington’s Jon Snow will return, even as story logistics seemingly confirm scenes set at The Wall next year.
HBO is still busy celebrating Game of Thrones Season 5's Emmy wins, so check out the FX reel above while we wait for more news on Season 6.
