There are still a few more months to go for the final season of the Game of Thrones to be aired, and fans are busy spawning theories and dishing out speculations as to how the show would end. A five-second teaser of an encounter between the mother of dragons Daenerys Targaryen and the regent of Winterfell Sansa Stark, released recently, raised the expectations to a feverish pitch, making the wait all the more agonising.

Now, in a recent interview with Variety, HBO chief Richard Plepler, who has watched all the episodes in the final season of the Game of Thrones, had some interesting news for the fans of the show. Plepler said the makers of the show have come up with "six movies." "The reaction I had while watching them was, ‘I’m watching a movie'," he was quoted as saying. Each of the episodes of the show is reportedly 90 minutes long.

He called the final season of Game of Thrones a "spectacle" and said the showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss understood that the bar was high and "they’ve exceeded the bar." He further said he watched the final season without the CGI and he was in awe of the same.

Giving an indication of the grand scale affairs to come, he told Variety that everybody is in a for an "extraordinary treat of storytelling and of magical, magical production.”

The show is expected to be aired in April this year.
