More than three weeks ago, the first trailer for the new season of Game of Thrones was released and we haven’t got any official word on when we can expect a new trailer. While only days remain until the eighth season, a new promo has been aired with some never ever seen footage, teasing the first three episodes.
The 30-second-long promo starts off with Tyrion Lannister addressing a bunch of people at Winterfell, saying, “We must fight together now…or die…”. looking closely, you can even spot Daenerys and Sansa sitting on the head table. This is then followed by the kid we saw in the official trailer watching Jon and Daenerys arrive at Winterfell with the Unsullied and Dothraki armies, crossing Winter Town. Then we see three Greyjoy ships sailing – nothing new about it yet it being shown in another promo has to mean something important. My bets are on these being Theon/Yara Greyjoy’s fleet.
Moving forward, we see what seems to be Jon and Daenerys meeting in a dark room with Dany facing the fire with her back turned to Jon followed by him leaving the room immediately. No thoughts on what may be going on here or the tensions between the two yet the way Dany has braided her hair in this shot gives me a feeling that she’s about to leave for another important battle.
We then see a shot of Drogon and Rhaegal flying over Winterfell hovering over Sansa Stark – the old shot we saw in the trailer. This is followed by a bunch of new footages Beric Dondarrion racing towards the Hound with a flaming sword during the Battle of Winterfell. We also see the Unsullied preparing for battle with a voice over of Jon Snow ‘Our enemy doesn’t tire…doesn’t stop…”.
Then we see Cersei Lannister turning around in a dramatic fashion which is followed by Ser Davos Seaworth, Tyrion, and Varys looking up in the sky awestruck. If this is a dragon – there’s nothing new about that at least to Tyrion and Varys, their jaw-dropping reaction gives me vibes that probably they spot Jon flying on Rhaegal over Winterfell (a wishful thought!)
The promo ends with Arya’s hardcore fighting at Winterfell, a wight/Walker arriving near Winterfell on the undead horse we saw in the previous trailer, and the closing image of Drogon spitting fire on someone/something along with Jon’s dialogue ‘They’re coming…”.
No official word on this short promo of the new season of Game of Thrones yet a fan managed to get a full shot of the promo that you can watch here:
With less than two weeks remaining in the new season of Game of Thrones, the cravings are now more than ever yet another trailer from HBO would really be the icing on the cake. What were your thoughts on this short promo from the new season? Did we miss out anything? Tell us in the comments below.
