Curious to know more? Then read on, because we're about to find out all the details on advances and cast, plot, news and release of Game of Thrones 7.
In this long-awaited seventh season the Game of Thrones will be in the hands of Cersei Lannister. According to Sophie Turner, the actress who plays Sansa Stark, in the new season, her character will become an active part of Game of Thrones and could consider the idea of her and Littlefinger to conquer the seven kingdoms.
In Game Of Thrones 7 witness the fateful meeting between the Mother of Dragons and Jon Snow, as well as the invasion of the western continent by the army of Daenerys, whose first landing will be Dorne. The viewers also expect the face-off between Jon and Theon, one between the Mountain and the Hound, and, of course, the return of Arya Stark.
The most interesting advances on Game of Thrones 7 come to us right from the cast. In addition to the start date of the new season, we know with certainty that the 7th will not be the last chapter of the series, because it also plans of Game of Thrones 8. Sophie Turner has in fact revealed that among her upcoming projects she is working on the eighth season of the Game of Thrones.
Some rumors circulating on the net have confirmed the entry into the cast of Jim Broadbent (Horace Slughorn in Harry Potter), while other rumors have been denied about the actress Jessica Fletcher.
There is also talk of a possible entrance of Rhaegar Targaryen, probably played by Devin Oliver, real father of Jon Snow and brother of Daenerys. This would be in flashbacks since Rhaegar died, but it seems that the seventh season will deepen the story of parents and of childhood of Jon Snow, the new king of the North.
After the grand finale of episode 6x10 and the announcement of long-awaited release of The Winds of Winter, the public's interest in the plot and characters of the Game of Thrones 7 became greater. George RR Martin has announced that, after the The Winds of Winter, the bookish saga of Game of Thrones will have a 7th and an 8th chapter that should put an end to the plot.
As always from the beginning of Game of Thrones, in fact, fans are eager for the start the new season. To the disappointment of fans, the number of episodes of Game of Thrones 7 will be equal to 7, which is half compared to previous seasons. Typically seasons of Game of Thrones always started in March, but the sixth began on April 24, 2016.
Are you wondering where were we? If you want to get a review of the plot of Game Of Thrones 6, you are in the right place, because in addition to talk about the news of the 7th season here is a summary of alliances and stories left open in Game of Thrones 6. Game of Thrones 6 was one of the best seasons of the series, and the ending was left open for too many scenarios.
Daenerys, took the bosses' ships and allied with Greyjoy of the Iron Islands but have promised not to claim the Iron Throne, and is heading to the Western Continent. Aboard the ship there is also Daenerys Varys, the eunuch advisor who was sent to deal with Elia Martell of Dorne and grandmother of Tyrell, both eager to take revenge on the Lannister.
If this alliance seemed strange, in fact it is not at all as the sister of Oberyn, in fact, was the legitimate wife of Rhaegar Targaryen, son of Mad King and elder brother of Daenerys, but we have never seen in the Throne.
In the North, meanwhile, the families historically linked to Stark swore allegiance to Jon Snow, proclaiming him King of the North. The news does not go down well with Baelish Lord, who has confided to Sansa that he wants to win the Iron Throne with her at his side. Being a petty and subtle character, we can only expect new low blows against Stark by Littlefinger.
As for Jon Snow, here we have discovered what was already leaked, meaning he is not the illegitimate son of Ned Stark but the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen. The boy sees the young Ned go to the bedside of his sister Lyanna dying after giving birth to a child. She asks him to take care of the baby and is immediately clear that this is Jon Snow. But let's take a step back.
Lyanna was betrothed with Robert Baratheon, the king of the first season. Rhaegar Targaryen was the eldest son of Aerys II Targaryen, the Mad King killed by Jaime Lannister, and was succeeded by Robert Baratheon on the Iron Throne.
Tywin Lannister, father of Cersei, Jaime and Tyrion, wanted Rhaegar married to Cersei, but Aerys II had him married to Elia Martell. Rhaegar kidnapped Lyanna Stark and got her pregnant. Her father and her brother went to protest but they were killed by the Mad King. That was when Ned Stark and Robert Baratheon gave rise to the rebellion that overthrew the reign of the king, then killed by Jaime.
So Jon Snow is the grandson of Daenerys. This is a very important detail, especially considering that the real power struggle in Game of Thrones 7 will be fought between the Lannisters, back on the throne after the mass extermination by wildfire, and the mother of the Dragons.
Cersei had to rely only on her brother, the Mountain and her army, while Daenerys could benefit in the future, even aid from the North and, in return, to exterminate the Others with the fire of his dragons.
In the novels of George RR Martin, the prophecy of the witch Maggy has already been fulfilled with the death of all 3 the sons of Cercei, who announces the death of the queen by the hand of valonqar which stands for younger brother. Will Tyrion kill Cersei in the seventh season of Game of Thrones? As we know Daenerys Targaryen is on Westeros route aboard the ship Greyjoy to claim the throne of swords, and with him there is also Tyrion Lannister, his adviser and First Knight.
It seems now certain that the great event of the next season of Game of Thrones will be the clash between the two queens, Cersei Lannister and the Mother of Dragons. The prophecies recorded in the novels of Martin tend to come true.
Most of the actors in the cast of Game of Thrones will return. With the passing of the seasons many people, even important, have died, but many others have returned unexpectedly.
We think of Jon Snow, who was presumed dead at the end of Season 5, and then rose again in the 6th, or even the Mastiff, given up for dead in the fifth chapter, but returned to surprise towards the end of the sixth season. Expect, therefore, that any character not yet dead in the sixth season can be back in Game of Thrones 7. Yes, even those who we do not see a long time and that you forgot the name and face.
For example, the sixth season began with Ellaria Sand who kills Dorne Doran Martell, Trystane and Areo Hotah. The undead have increased and we have seen die the Crow with Three Eyes, Hodor and Bran direwolf, Summer. The direwolf of Rickon is dead, and so is Asha, Balon Greyjoy, Roose Bolton, Walder Frey, and his half-brother newborn Ramsay.
Jon also has hanged Alliser Thorne, Olly and all his brothers involved in the plot. Daenerys killed a large number of Kahli Dothraki burning them alive and finally we said goodbye to the new mentor of Sandor Clegane and the rest of his followers, killed by the Brotherhood without Flag.
Will we see new characters in the seventh season? No doubt we will see the entry of some new ones in the cast of the Game of Thrones 7, but we do not have much information about certain decisions about the cast of HBO. The arrival of Jim Broadbent in a very important role in Season 7 and martial artist Conor McGregor for a cameo is confirmed.
Will George RR Martin write more episodes for the broadcast of Game of Thrones 7? In past seasons the writer was involved in the writing of the episodes, but in the sixth season it was decided not to release the book The Winds of Winter so as not to anticipate in any way what would have happened in the 6th chapter of the series.
Although Martin has not even written an episode of the sixth season, he has made its contribution to Weiss and Benioff for each other and the death of Hodor, and therefore we believe that will also be involved in the drafting of the series finale.
It is still too early to know the plot of the new episodes of Season 7, but rumors has HBO is in talks to make a few shots of the season 7x08 in the Canary Islands. In the past some footage such as those in Dorne were made in Spain, but at the moment we do not know which settings will be useful to the Canary location.
The release of The Winds of Winter was scheduled for this spring, but then Martin has corrected the date of publication of the novel, stating that it is not ready yet. The writer did not know anything else on the postponement of the release date of the book, but gave a preview of the seventh volume. It will be titled A Dream of Spring, and should be the last of the saga, although Martin leaves the door open to a possible 8th chapter if he deems necessary.
The writer has already outlined the end of the series and the fate of the main characters, anticipating that there will be a happy ending, but rather a bittersweet conclusion. Martin said that if he should die before he had finished writing his novels he will not let another writer put an end on the last page of A Song of Ice and Fire. It has, however, revealed to the producers of Game of Thrones the conclusion that he has in mind.
