Yes, it’s finally here. HBO has finally released the official trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8, after months and months of frustratingly short clips and weird promo clips.
It’s been over 18 months since we last saw Game of Thrones, and now, the final season is barely a month away.

The two-minute trailer runs through just about every major character we’ve met over the past seven seasons as they all gear up for the war against the Night King and his army of White Walkers.
1. It Left (Almost) No Man Behind
It’s full of Arya Stark, Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Cersei Lannister, Jaime Lannister, Tyrion Lannister, Sansa Stark, Bran Stark, Brienne of Tarth, Davos Seaworth, Jorah Mormont, Grey Worm, Missandei, Samwell Tarly, Podrick Payne, Gendry, Lord Varys, The Hound, and all those dragons.
2. The Battle Of Winterfell Looks To Be Epic
Shots that definitely appear to be from the great fight between the citizens of the Seven Kingdoms and the Night King’s army open the trailer. And then there are tons of quick shots of the fight mixed into the rest of the trailer. This battle is also going to be the longest ever put on the screen, according to Entertainment Weekly’s coverage of the final season.
3. The Hound In Front Of A Bunch Of Fire
There’s that one very conspicuous close-up shot of The Hound’s face with flames in the background. The Hound, as we know, hates fire because his brother shoved his face in a hearth when they were kids.
4. Who Is That Guy Standing On The Greyjoys Boat?
It seems this is a new character — maybe a member of the Golden Company that Euron went to Essos to fetch at the end of season 7!
5. Cersei Is Holding Court With A New Group
Cersei on the Iron Throne has Qyburn on her left and The Mountain on her right, and there is someone standing in front of her facing away and someone looking at her and we haven’t a clue.
