In what feels like forever, Game of Thrones fans were graced with the trailer for the upcoming 7th season of the fantasy series, and my God, it looks awesome!
We are introduced to the new series with Queen Cersei’s eerie voice: “Enemies to the East, enemies to the West, enemies to the South & enemies to the North”, as she stands with Jamie Lannister planning their battle on one of the most impractical maps we’ve ever seen. We’re then taken to what appears to be Dragonstone, Daenery’s ancestral home, where she declares “I was born to rule the Seven Kingdoms, and I will”, hinting of the war between Cersei and the ‘mother of dragons’.
Then in comes the main man himself, surrounded by members of the ‘Night’s Watch’ shouting “the King of the North, Jon Snow. As Cersie and Daeneys prepare for battle against each other, John is preparing for the threat of the White Walkers.
We are then shown short clips of other characters and hints of their fate; Sansa, Arya, Melisandre and the cunning Littlefinger are to name a few; but instead of going through scene by scene, guessing at what’s taking place and where, we’ve included the trailer below:
Season 7 will consist of a mere 8 episodes, and as the following season will include just 7, you can expect a lot of sped up story lines and action packed episodes as the writers have some serious wrapping up to do.
The new series will arrive July 16.
