Emilia Clarke: 'Game of Thrones' Covers 'EW'
“This season is about a country at war. And we felt like if we didn’t see the most important battle of this entire war onscreen, we’re going to shortchange viewers,” showrunner David Benioff told the mag.
“To my knowledge, a story of this scale has never been told within filmed entertainment,” added co-creator Dan Weiss. “There’s so many characters and locations and storylines, so many things that are atypical in television – and for good reason. You could do this show relatively easily with twice the money that we have, then after a couple great seasons it’d collapse under its own weight and cease to exist.”
