Although he was clever enough to hide some details, he revealed that the next season will hit the cinemas in April 2019. The man at the top has had a look at the six movies and enthused that fans are in for a big treat.
'[Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss] knew the bar was high. They’ve exceeded the bar. I’ve watched them twice without any CGI and I’m in awe.'
‘Everybody’s in for an extraordinary treat of storytelling and of magical, magical production.’

Director David Nutter during the Reddit Ask Me Anything session confirmed that each show would run longer than 60 minutes; confirming Pepler’s thrilling news.

The short clip that aroused intense desire among fans showed Daenerys Targaryen meeting Sansa as always expected to be a true fire-meets-ice moment.
It shows Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke, approaching Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) in Winterfell - which has always belonged to the Starks for thousands of years.
