After a brutal 11-month wait, Game of Thrones has finally released an actual trailer for the upcoming seventh season and it promises and epic war amongst the seven kingdoms!
The short, but incredibly tense, trailer is filled with glimpses of each of our characters as they prepare for battle. From Daenerys making the claim once more that she is “born to rule the Seven Kingdoms” whilst Cersei takes note of her enemies: “Enemies to the East. Enemies to the West. Enemies to the South. Enemies to the North. Whatever stands in our way, we will defeat it.”
Show-runner David Benioff spoke in an interview with Entertainment Weekly about the seventh season, “For a long time we’ve been talking about ‘the wars to come’ and well, that war is pretty much here. So it’s really about trying to find a way to make the storytelling work without feeling like we’re rushing it.”
Season 7 marks the penultimate season and will contain just seven episodes and the following season will be the final season and contain only 6 episodes. Aside from our regular cast returning, this season is also set to feature a cameo from Ed Sheeran and Jim Broadbent.
Game of Thrones premieres July 16th on HBO.
