Game of Thrones reached an epic climax at the end of season six. Jon defeated Ramsay in the massive Battle of the Bastards. Then we have Daenerys crossing the sea with her army of ships and dragons. In addition to this, Cersei is standing powerful in the ruins of Kings Landing. Yes, we finally have the showdown that we’ve been waiting for.
After a painstaking year of waiting, HBO are teasing us even more with some awesome promos for the seventh season of GoT. Previously we had a trailer featuring the emblems of all of Westeros’s houses crashing into each other. Now, in this latest promo, we can see all three challengers to the Iron Throne taking their places ready for the tense season ahead. With only two more seasons of the hit fantasy show left, things are really hotting up. Check out the new video below.
What’s brilliant about the new trailer is the tongue-in-cheek soundtrack. We can hear James’s ‘Sit Down’ playing as each of the characters takes their places. We can also see Daenerys taking on a new throne. Could this be the seat at Dragonstone?
HBO have played their cards close to their chest with the trailers for the new season of Game of Thrones. As EW point out, the footage from the teaser above has purposefully been shot for marketing the new set of episodes. However, with all three of our Iron Throne contenders in all their glory – do we really need any more?
Of course, like the trailer before it, this new promo sees Daenerys, Jon and Cersei all eclipsed by the eye of the Night King. Winter is coming. With the Night King featuring prominently in each of these two trailers, it’s more than likely that we’ll get a flavour of the battle of Ice and Fire ahead in this up and coming series.
