- Winter is nearly here! HBO released the first teaser trailer for the final season of „Game of Thrones“ and it teases a war waging between ice and fire, a nice nod to the show’s source material, George R.R. Martin’s „A Song of Ice and Fire“ book series.
- The teaser shows a dragon and direwolf become overtaken by ice on one side of a table while a lion getting consumed by fire at the table’s other end. It’s all a big tease of a brewing battle between Dany, the North, the Lannisters, and the Night King we expect to occur next season.
- The teaser was reportedly first shown at a „Game of Thrones“ panel at Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil.
- As pointed out by our own Kim Renfro, composer Djawadi Ramin’s „Winter is Here,“ from the season seven finale, is used in the teaser.
- As spotted by fans, fire and ice meet at the table’s center to forge a wall in the middle. Renfro wonders if the two converging is representative of what happens when a wight-dragon fights a regular dragon. (Is the result dragonglass?)
- Season eight of „Game of Thrones“ will debut in April 2019. HBO has not announced an official release date. Watch the first teaser below.
