Game of Thrones Season 7 First Look Photos Are Here

What do you think of Daenerys' new outfit?

Liam Mathews

This is like returning from summer vacation and seeing who changed since the last time you saw them.

HBO released a beautiful bundle of Game of Thrones Season 7 photos on Thursday, and there's a lot of exciting stuff to look at in the 15 production snaps.

All the heavy-hitters are represented -- there's Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) and Sansa (Sophie Turner) looking down pensively at the courtyard of Winterfell; Cersei (Lena Headey) and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in the throne room of the Red Keep; Sam (John Bradley) and Gilly (Hannah Murray) poring over books at the Citadel; Tormund (Kristofer Hijvu) smiling awkwardly at his crush Brienne (Gwendoline Christie); The Hound (Rory McCann) on horseback; and everyone's favorite child soldier Lyanna Mormont, among many others.

Game of Thrones Season 7: Everything We Know So Far

But the most exciting photos are the ones that give us a good look at Daenerys' (Emilia Clarke) new Westeros costume. She's looking very imperial in a long, uncharacteristically dark dress with a matching cloak and dramatic shoulder pads. A new throne requires a new look, you know? Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) have new leathers, too.
