Kit Harington on a cliff for a Game of Thrones scene has yielded many, many wonderful joys. From that Game of Thrones scene where Jon Snow pets Daenerys Targaryen's (Emilia Clarke) dragon—which Dany finds an "attractive quality"—to Clarke's Instagram of Harington flapping his cape like wings. And now there's another joy to behold, the below tweet by @ThePixelFactor.
Yes, that is a scene of Donkey from Shrek with a dragon that looks pretty much exactly like the scene from Game of Thrones with Jon Snow and Drogon. You can't make this up.
It's pretty much shot for shot the same thing! Jon Snow taking a page from Shrek!
Regarding the Game of Thrones scene, Harington said, "I quite liked that moment with the dragon. I think there was something I wanted to bring to it, which was quite animalistic. Animals go on the smell of something. If you're coming up to a horse, you want it to sniff you before it trusts you. Hopefully that worked with the dragons. If you show quite a vicious animal fear, it will jump on that, but if you show it bravery, it will respond in a different way."
"She sees his interaction with her dragons and it's an attractive quality for her," Clarke said.
Game of Thrones is already racing toward the end of season seven. The penultimate episode airs Sunday, Aug. 20—but it's already out there thanks to an HBO error.
"We have learned that the upcoming episode of Game of Thrones was accidentally posted for a brief time on the HBO Nordic and HBO España platforms," HBO said in a statement. "The error appears to have originated with a third party vendor and the episode was removed as soon as it was recognized. This is not connected to the recent cyber incident at HBO in the US."
This is the second time this season Game of Thrones was leaked, but the first time was due to a hack. However, it didn't mess with ratings at all. Season seven episodes keep shattering the previous set records.
Who will win the Iron Throne? We have some guesses.
Game of Thrones airs Sundays, 9 p.m. on HBO.
