The next season of Game of Thrones is looking more like a movie franchise than a season of television. With fewer episodes and longer runtimes, including a record 81-minute season finale, it promises to be a groundbreaking cinematic experience on the small screen. If you want proof, all you have to do is watch this three-minute trailer mashup that looks like it belongs in a movie theater.

YouTuber Sebastian Hughes has combined all the trailers and promos for Game of Thrones season 7 into one (mostly) seamless trailer, throwing together related scenes and stories to give us even further insight into where these characters are and where they’re going.

It’s hard not to watch something like this and marvel at the fact that it’s not actually a feature film, but rather a television series. It shows how far television has come as a medium that it can produce something this big and beautiful. You can check out the trailer mashup below. Game of Thrones returns July 16.
