The Great War is coming in “Game of Thrones”, and fans of the popular HBO TV series have finally gotten their first look at the official Season 7 trailer, featuring some of the epic battles and political showdowns that we can expect from the new season.
The 90-second preview shows all the involved parties’ preparation for the final battle; Cersei Lannister is rallying her troops, Jon Snow is preparing for war in the North, and Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons are finally making their way back to Westeros with an eye on the Iron Throne.
The trailer begins with Queen Cersei striding across a map of Westeros the size of an entire room, ready to take on enemies coming from every direction.
Meanwhile, Daenerys finally returns home, putting her hand on Westeros soil after disembarking at Dragonstone, claming that she was born to rule the Seven Kingdoms.
Jon Snow the born-again King in the North and possible messiah, along with his fellow Northerners contend with the frozen forces barrelling towards the Wall.
The trailer also shows Littlefinger hitching his wagon to Sansa as his “last hope,” and Melisandre surprisingly returning to action after having been banished.
While we can see that a lot is going within this trailer, the main highlight would definitely be the showdown between the Dothraki and Lannister army in an open field, and the Unsullied overtaking a Lannister keep.
“Game of Thrones” Season 7 will be a mere seven (but explosive) episodes, compared to its usual ten, and it is set to premiere on 16 July 2017 on the HBO channel.
