Will R+L=J Deliver?

I heard something similar. I think the official line at the moment is they don't know, but 90 minutes definitely seems possible with quotes like "Two hours per episode seems like it would be excessive, but it’s a great show, so who knows?" But I thought they cut down on the number of episodes because they didn't think they had enough material for 20 more episodes. That's obviously not true with the way they're rushing through events (you could have spent a whole season on Jon getting from Dragonstone to Eastwatch!) but it does at least allow them to have a higher budget:screentime ratio, which I guessed was their real reason - more dragons, less talking. Feature length episodes would result in a season at least as long as previous ones. If they are doing that, I wonder why. Maybe they committed to seven episodes before they really knew how much time they'd need.
