Game of Thrones Featurette From SNL Reveals The Magic Behind Dragons

Last night, Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage made his hosting debut on Saturday Night Live, and it's expected that the late night sketch show would parody the popular HBO epic fantasy series. 

The show entertained us with a faux featurette from the show's behind the scenes that reveal how they bring Daenerys Targaryen's awesome dragons to life for the forthcoming sixth season. Of course, visual effects are involved, but there's also some remarkable motion capture that helps. This is one of the most hilarious SNL skits I've seen. I'm also impressed of how Kate McKinnon looks as Dany in the sketch.
