The full trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8 is here. After several months of build-up via teasers, images, and posters, we finally have a good look at what to expect from the last season of HBO’s long-running fantasy hit.
The trailer is all about setting up the epic battle against the Night King and his army of the dead at Winterfell. Most of the main characters feature, including Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen, and Arya Stark, together with a taste of the epic battles that we’ve been promised this season. Check it out above.
Although Game of Thrones is nearing the end, there is a prequel spin-off on the way. X-Men: First Class’ Jane Goldman will serve as showrunner and has developed the story with creator George RR Martin. This week it was revealed that the show will start filming early this summer.
While it’s yet to receive an official title, Martin suggested last year that it would be called The Long Night. He subsequently walked that back, perhaps due to pressure from HBO that didn’t want that name shared yet. In any event, it does provide some insight into what to expect. It is expected to premiere in 2020 or 2021.
