The barrage of Game of Thrones season 7 promotional photographs lately has been a relief for our GOT-starved eyes, but, aside from the trailer, we have only seen a single frame of what we’ll actually get to see this coming season, with the intended special effects, lighting and all. That was the impressive sight of Daenerys mounted on Drogon, in the middle of a battlefield. Today, Daenerys, Drogon and the rest of her crew return for our first proper view of Dany’s arrival in the Seven Kingdoms in season seven.
There are now many photos of Queen Daenerys touching Westerosi sand for the first time, but the following screen capture from the season premiere, published by TIME, shows us the preceding moments within the same scene, in their CG-enhanced glory:
Aside from Daenerys, Tyrion, Missandei and Varys, Grey Worm should be there, somewhere. You may also notice Drogon, Viserion and Rhaegal in the background, flying over a fleet of Targaryen, Martell, Tyrell and Greyjoy ships. They are all looking at a particular point, which we now know to be Dragonstone, Dany’s first stop in her campaign for the conquest of the Seven Kingdoms, which starts July 16.
