Winter has been coming for a while now over in the Game of Thrones universe, but apparently it may be coming alongside what fans have long been hoping for: A full-length film. Or, rather, films.

Creator George R.R. Martin teased the possibility last night, saying to the Hollywood Reporter that he’s currently considering a shot at a GoT movie depending on how long the series itself runs:

“It all depends on how long the main series runs,” the fantasy author said. “Do we run for seven years? Do we run for eight? Do we run for 10? The books get bigger and bigger (in scope). It might need a feature to tie things up, something with a feature budget, like $100 million for two hours. Those dragons get real big, you know.“ 

Hear that? That’s the sound of millions of people getting their hopes up. And then, of course, there’s the additional tease that Martin isn’t at all opposed to cranking out a couple full-lengths detailing three prequels to his A Song of Ice and Fire series. The best part, though, is that the guy dropped this news like it was no big deal in the entertainment world. Classic Martin. 

But as Martin eyes moving his series over to the big screen, the TV side of things continues to grow and shock—and not the least because season four reportedly has an unprecedented amount of character deaths across its run. So, yes, this will be a good spring for television.

Prepare yourselves with the final season four trailer below:
