The slow reveal of the “Game of Thrones” season 7 release date may have frustrated many of the fans, but Kit Harington has teased in a recent interview that all the pain of the wait this year will be worth it. The producers have apparently spent more money on fewer episodes, and all the main characters get more action as well.

In an interview with Huffington Post, Harington (Jon Snow) said that the producers have spent “an increasing amount of money on less episodes,” which means the show will be “much bigger in scale.” So, there will be some exciting CGI scenes featured in the TV series this year. Even with the camera techniques, the actor said that they have experimented with new things this year, which will “push past boundaries.”

Harington concedes that it is difficult to live up to the hype that is created around the show. He also added that it is important to attempt to push themselves to break boundaries, because even if the experiments don’t work; at least they will have the satisfaction of trying and going out “with a bang.”

Will all of this money and effort make the wait for “Game of Thrones” season 7 worth it? Harington certainly hopes so. For him, personally, Harington said that he has done more this season than he has ever done for the show in the past. This is also true for all the other major cast members. This translates into more action, and more screen time for the actors.

The increased screen time was made possible because fewer new characters are coming in, Harington pointed out. Many of the major characters have already died on the show, giving the remaining characters more space.

There will be some exciting reunions on the show as well, Harington revealed. The actor didn’t say who will be reunited, but teased that it will be characters who the fans have been waiting for for a “long time” to see together. With Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) finally making her move, the actor may be talking about her meeting with Jon Snow.

The release date of “Game of Thrones” season 7 has been revealed to be July 16. Liam Cunningham had previously hinted that the show will return in July, but later backtracked by saying “Davos don’t know date.” However, with the premiere date now revealed, it is apparent that “Davos” knows more than what a “pawn” would know. The character is the Hand of the King on the show.
