It will be some time until fans of Game of Thrones will be transported to the North, where the great battle will continue at the Wall. Until then, we will have to reminisce about some of the thrilling action from this past season.
This includes the scenes from VFX house Image Engine that has one of the dragons, with the mother of dragons on its back, leading the charge in what is called the Loot Train sequence.
This breakdown shows how the studio used bats and eagles for reference, and how new technology was used to place actress Emilia Clarke on the dragon's back.
