To all the GoT fans out there, hold your breathe coz its that time of the year again!!! While the last season of the popular series Game of Thrones is all set to premiere in April 2019, the makers have already dropped in a trailer that definitely promises a lot more than expected.
This 54 seconds long trailer hints at the upcoming war between Lannisters vs Starks and Targaryens. In short, the teaser hints at a lot of plot points in the upcoming season 8.
It seems that this battle of ice and fire is something all have been definitely waiting for, even if not prepared for it. The teaser begins with ice engulfing a statute of a direwolf, the sigil of House Stark. The ice then moves ahead and freezes over a dragon statue, the sigil of House Targaryen. Next, big flames engulf a lion statue, which is the sigil of House Lannister.
It was already witnessed in the last season, that Stark and Targaryen houses joined their forces to fight against the whitewalkers. Cersei Lannister, however, was still safe in the south of Westeros with Jaime deserting her and riding up north. The audience also got confirmation on Jon’s true parentage and it was unveiled that he is a valid heir to the throne.
Of course, in this teaser, it is quite interesting to see a dragon freeze over as they are usually the representation of fire. In the season finale last year, the Night King rode on the undead dragon Viserion as he broke down a section of the wall with the White Walker army marching down south.
As per reports, the actors shot extensively for 10 months to create the six episodes of the final season. On why it has been taking so long, Harington added that, “It’s relentless; scenes that would have been a one-day shoot five years ago are now a five-day shoot. They want to get it right. They want to shoot everything every single way so they have options. [Camera] checks take longer, costumes are a bit better, hair and makeup a bit sharper — every choice, every conversation, every attitude, has this air of ‘this is it.’ Everything feels more intense”.
The show is any way known for killing its major characters and thus the last season might also be doing the same in its complete glory.
Winter would be definitely interesting now!!!
