HBO Drops First 'Game Of Thrones' Season 8 Trailer

Game of Thrones Dragon Special Effects

Talk of the upcoming season of Game of Thrones (and a possible prequel) has been circling the web for some time now and after the premiere date was revealed last month, fans now have a teaser to hold themselves over until the full season or trailer arrives.

The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones will premiere in April of 2019. Details about the upcoming episodes are scarce, but we do know that they will be longer than normal, they will contain an epic battle bigger than anything the series has ever done ("It makes the Battle of the Bastards look like a theme park", per star Peter Dinklage), and they will contain moments that brought numerous show's cast to tears.

The preview, which debuted at the São Paulo Expo offshoot of Comic Con in Brazil, begins with ice overtaking the land of Westros, before freezing a wolf representing House Stark solid.

The 39-second animated clip shows ice and fire sweeping over a map of Westeros. Both elements are seen existing in its natural habitat, taking over certain grounds and things get escalated when fire meets ice where the teaser ultimately ends.

Though the clip doesn't offer any new footage from the series itself, it serves as a foreboding warning of what's to come when Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) battle it out with Cersei (Lena Headey) for the throne.

Earlier in the week Vladimir Furdik, the actor who plays the Night King, dished details about the show's sure-to-be epic final battle to the Hungarian website Sorozat Wiki.

The final season will be just six-episodes long.
