Game of Thrones is preparing for the great war with the release of their long-awaited trailer. The new clip, which runs for a measly 1:48 minutes, shows-off some brand new season 7 footage featuring, The Mother of Dragons – Daenerys Targaryen and her right-hand man Tyrion, King in the North – Jon Snow, blood-thirsty Cersei Lannister and her brother/lover Jaime, and of course everyone’s favourite separated sisters Arya and Lady of Winterfell – Sansa Stark.
“Enemies to the east, enemies to the west, enemies to the south, enemies to the north,” says a confident Cersei on her iron throne, brutally dismissing her brother Tyrion.
“Whatever stands in our way, we will defeat it. We are the last Lannisters. The last ones who count.”
The official Game of Thrones trailer is promising a war, and if Game of Thrones’ history is anything to go by, it is going to be bloody, brutal and epic. With both Daenerys and Cersei setting their sights on the Seven Kingdoms, it is likely fans will witness a battle they will never forget.
HBO has confirmed that season 7 will be the second last season of Game of Thrones. In an interview with Deadline, Showrunner David Benioff said that he didn’t want Game of Thrones to be an ongoing show, where every season it’s trying to figure out new storylines. “We wanted something where, if people watched it end to end, it would make sense as one continuous story. We’re definitely heading into the end game now,” said Benioff.
With the end of the show looming, fans can’t help but wonder, who is going to win the battle, which of our favourites are going to die trying, and with Jon and Sansa reunited, will Arya find her way home again?
While the end of Game of Thrones is approaching, HBO has hinted at several GOT spin-off series which could bring the universe back to life.
