When the third season of Game of Thrones returns this weekend the most noticeable difference will be the size of Daenerys’ dragons. No longer are they small and cute and capable of chillin’ on Dany’s shoulder. No no, these dragons are growing, and this latest promo for Thrones offers our best look at them yet,

How cool is that final shot of them souring above, I believe, Astapor, the city where she’ll seek to purchase an army of slaves. They look fantastic, don’t they? I knew these dragons had to get bigger for this season as they become a much more valuable weapon in Dany’s arsenal, but I wasn’t sure how far HBO would go. Doesn’t look like they’re pulling any of their punches, these dragons look fierce!

Hit the jump for another video of David Benioff and Dan Weiss chatting more about what’s coming in Season 3, plus a hilarious historical recap of the Targaryen family.

Benioff and Weiss were recently on Grantland’s Hollywood Prospectus podcast with TV critic Andy Greenwald and the below clip comes from that interview, check it out,

Much of the same, but I know can’t hear enough from these creators. I’m stoked to see what they’ve done this season!

If you’ve picked up either of the DVD/Blu-ray sets for Game of Thrones Season 1 or 2 you know they provide these excellent history and lore videos to help flesh out the back story of Westeros. ForSeason 3 they should give Comicbookgirl19 a call. Check our her recap below focusing on those crazy Targaryens. Spoiler warning for the first two seasons!

Game of Thrones returns Sunday at 9pm EST on HBO!
