Philadelphia is already home to one high-profile dragon in Drexel University's Mario the Magnificent. But this week, we'll host one that's a little more fearsome, courtesy of the folks behind Game of Thrones.
Beginning at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Dilworth Plaza will house one of the pesky beasts. You'll be able to tell due to the "dug up concrete, skid marks, dragon footprints, rippling smoke, [and] crushed benches," as a release notes.
That night at 8:15, the Game of Thrones dragon will "take flight" as part of a 3D animated projection known as "Dance of Dragons." The "flight" will begin at 13th and Market.
Game of Thrones is bringing a dragon to Philadelphia this week as promotion for the series' fifth season being released on DVD. Previously, the Game of Thrones crew took the "Dance of Dragons" to New York and Los Angeles, and will wrap the production up Thursday in San Francisco.
Judging from those previous stagings, Philly is in for a bit of a mess:
Wednesday's dragon happenings, meanwhile, can be followed on Twitter under the hashtag #GOT5DVD. Season six of Game of Thrones premieres April 24 on HBO.
