GAME OF THRONES: See Just How Big Dany's Dragon Has Become In Latest Season 4 Tease

"Dracarys". HBO has released another Vine tease for the upcoming fourth season of the fantasy drama series, giving us an extended look at one Daenerys Targaryen's dragons rising into frame. We also have a video interview with Rose Lesley (Ygritte) as she promotes season 3.

We've seen this shot teased very briefly in the trailers already, but here's a much longer glimpse at one of Dany's (now MUCH bigger) dragons rising very intimidatingly in front of some unfortunate soul on the ground. Fans of the books might hazard a guess as to who that could be.

"You knaw nothin Jon Snaw". The lovely (and much posher in real life) Rose Leslie was recently in Australia to promote the Game of Thrones Season 3 Blu-ray/DVD release, and sat down with CNet Australia to discuss the popularity of her character Ygritte among other things.

"In the wake of the Red Wedding, how does the North pick up the pieces and with their greatest enemy seemingly crushed, where does that leave the Lannisters. Daenerys Targaryen now has an army but is she ready to take back her homeland. Does Jon Snow turn south to seek revenge or remember his duty along the Wall?"

Game Of Thrones returns for its fourth season on April 6.

She is most definitely NOT rubbish, on GoT or off...
Klone - 2/23/2014, 5:22 AM
It would be [frick]ing awesome if one episode opened with a small flashback to the Targaryen conquest and we saw... BALERION THE BLACK DREAD.

My favorite David Benioff quote

Danbojohnj - 2/23/2014, 5:49 AM
You sure that's one of Dany's dragons.

yep that's Drogon.
Danbojohnj - 2/23/2014, 6:01 AM
Eee,they do grow up fast,they'll be needing saddles soon.

Klone - 2/23/2014, 6:01 AM

Who else would it be lol? Besides, Balerion as an adult was much bigger.
stoptheworld - 2/23/2014, 6:09 AM
Well, technically that's not a dragon. That's a wyvern :3
rebellion - 2/23/2014, 6:11 AM
rip hazzea
rebellion - 2/23/2014, 6:13 AM
ugh, wyvern, dragon, same thing. actully these and smaug have claws at the wrist joints. should we come up with a new name for that?
Kyos - 2/23/2014, 6:23 AM
These dragons are cool that way. Smaug needed his missing limbs. :(
Facade - 2/23/2014, 6:31 AM
My dick says it's cool.
Joementum - 2/23/2014, 6:41 AM
@ Rebellion

You could call these

Dragaryen(s) after Targaryen
Dothrako(s) after Dothraki
Waeneryn(s) after Daenerys

Hoi, Facade, talking about dragons and penises again? ;D
Klone - 2/23/2014, 7:15 AM
These dragons oddly work with only four limbs. Smaug works best with six in my opinion. However, these dragons in GoT are so well done they look real half the damn time.
SmokedTheBoss - 2/23/2014, 7:25 AM
Smaug would desolate all of them.
Boyle360 - 2/23/2014, 7:39 AM
Smaug only has four limbs: his legs and wings. It doesn't make sense for dragons to have arms as well as wings because that means they have 6 limbs altogether. Nearly all dragons nowadays are depicted with wings and no arms. It makes the most sense.
datNAMEtho - 2/23/2014, 7:49 AM
That's pretty damn cool. However, SMAUG is still the most fantastic dragon ever seen!!!!!!!!!!!!
SauronsBANE - 2/23/2014, 8:01 AM
Dragons are supposed to have 4 limbs and 2 wings. That's how they've been traditionally depicted. Lately the trend has been to turn them into wyverns for some reason. Game of Thrones makes it work. Smaug in The Hobbit really didn't. The simple fact is Smaug was completely changed in between the 1st and 2nd movies for some reason, when it would've been better to leave well enough alone. Jackson turned him into a slithering, Japanese-esque wyvern when the real thing (i.e. how he was in the book) would've been so much better.

At least Game of Thrones has the balls to do it's own thing and stick to it. Add the impeccable CGI, practical effects, convincing sets, and on-location shooting, and it's the best thing on TV right now, while giving plenty of movies a run for their money.

Drogon > Smaug

And I'm sure people will whine about how the number of limbs on a dragon isn't a big deal...but then they'll turn around and complain about Spider-Man's suit from the 1st TASM, or Captain America having a blue shield for part of TWS, or his undercover suit, or stupid stuff like that. Point is, the LOTR books are like my comic books, and unnecessary minor or major changes drive me nuts.
Ocelot - 2/23/2014, 8:17 AM
For a TV show that looks very very good and "real" in a way.
NoPhucksGiven - 2/23/2014, 8:24 AM
Dat Dragon Doe.
Klone - 2/23/2014, 8:32 AM

Given the size of Smaug and how intelligent and cunning he is, the six limbs in total make him look more powerful and grand. With Game of Thrones, the dragons are more animal and therefore it works better for them in my opinion. It depends really. With Smaug six feels right. With the animal like Ennos/Westeros ones, four works more. However, the GoT dragons look like they are really there. [frick]ing amazing visuals and CGI.
Klone - 2/23/2014, 8:34 AM

Balerion the Black Dread and Drogon being bosses as usual.
DCfan89 - 2/23/2014, 8:43 AM
wasn't really a big fan of smug... i think the GoT dragons are some of the best we've ever seen... just my opinion
Facade - 2/23/2014, 8:43 AM got a rise in anticipation of SauronsBANE1's hate of anything Hobbit...apparently even the best thing from it.
SauronsBANE - 2/23/2014, 8:45 AM
Completely agree, MAC. Smaug isn't supposed to be as animalistic as, say, the spiders in Mirkwood or the Eagles (the movie Eagles at least. In the books they actually talk and have human characteristics). Smaug's supposed to be smart, devious, greedy, basically every flaw in the human race embodied in a dragon. Making him into a wyvern really takes away from that, IMO.

The dragons in GoT are incredible though. The CGI at the very end of the 1st season was a bit suspect (understandably), but it's gotten better and better since then until the CGI in GoT looks and feels better than most movies. Including the terrible video-game asthetic of The Hobbit movies, IMO.
SauronsBANE - 2/23/2014, 8:48 AM
Don't flatter yourself, Facade, I'd hate on anything in The Hobbit whether or not you happened to comment on the article!

I don't deny that Smaug was the best part of Desolation, don't get me wrong. It's just so fitting that even the best part of the movie had so many flaws in it as well, IMO. Same thing with the best part of the first movie: the riddles in the dark with Gollum. Both instances were good, but could've been SO much better.
ALmazing - 2/23/2014, 8:59 AM
Wow, the CGI is quite remarkable.
DCfan89 - 2/23/2014, 9:18 AM
i wonder what the budget is, and how it has increased over the seasons.
Alexandre - 2/23/2014, 9:37 AM
That's a HUGE dragon.

That's what she said.

I'm surprised that there isn't any dick jokes yet. Come on guys, I can't be the only immature one here.
Danbojohnj - 2/23/2014, 10:05 AM
I'm familar wih the books, other than that.... No comment 😎
