WATCH: Winter is coming on April 14! HBO releases teaser and premiere date of Game of Thrones Season 8
Winter is officially coming April 14, 2019! Get ready to return to Westeros one last time as the official teaser for the final season of Game of Thrones has been revealed. In over one-minute long teaser footage, HBO also made the announcement about the premiere date for the final season of GOT.
The one-and-a-half minute teaser appears to have been created independently of the show. The video shows Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) walk through the crypts of Winterfell. At one point, we see Jon pass a statue of Lyanna Stark, his birth mother, hearing the voices of their dead family members. The three arrive at the end of the hallway, where they see their own statues as a frost approaches through the tunnels and the rest of the tunnel fills up with ice, giving a sign of the Whitewalkers.
Watch the teaser here:
The final season will consist of six episodes. Each of the episodes will be almost feature length. A ’brutal’ battle sequence that took 55 nights to film has also been teased by star Peter Dinklage, who told a leading magazine that it will make ‘the Battle of the Bastards look like a theme park.’
Earlier, HBO released a first look that featured Sansa Stark saying, “Winterfell is yours, Your Grace”, to Daenerys Targaryen.
While Game Of Thrones will be ending, there have been talks about the prequel which is said to be set 5,000 years prior to the events and will feature the Night King, and how he came to be. Emilia Clarke and Maisie Williams were one of the few actors to share their last days of shooting on social media.
