HBO on Tuesday released the full Game of Thrones Final Season trailer that comes in at 2 minutes in length. In the lead-up to the conclusion the saga, HBO has been releasing minimal promotional material in order to avoid any big reveal before people end up watching it in April.
This move comes in view of that showmakers are fully aware fans are ready to show up for the last six mega-sized episodes regardless of what characters appear in a teaser trailer or promotional photos.
However, the long-awaited trailer is now being dissected by the frenzied fans and media to find out more about the conclusion of the cult show.
Questions like the presence of two dragons in the clip have hit the sixth-sense of the fandom.
The fierce cratures mostly look like they’re preparing for battle, which is what most of the other characters appear to be doing as well. After opening on Arya Stark running and panting, we get some ominous voice-over from her where she says, “I know Death. He’s got many faces. I look forward to seeing this one.” This are the most prominent moments from the trailer.
The rest of the two-minute clip is fairly typical of Game of Thrones trailers and finds everyone playing their role — Jon Snow broods and talks about “our enemy,” Sansa acts steely and determined, Tyrion looks stressed and concerned, and Cersei drinks wine and schemes — but it’s fun to see everyone back together. Even if the Night King is on his way to ruin the party, at least all your friends are here. Tormund is alive!
