George RR Martin Says A New Game Of Thrones Trailer Is On The Way Soon

HBO may have only just released a teaser trailer for the upcoming season of Game of Thrones, but the books' author George R R Martin is already teasing fans with the news that a full trailer should be with us soon.

The iconic author took to Twitter to tell his fans that not only would there be a longer trailer, but a teaser too.

Of course, fans of the franchise absolutely lost it as the tweet received thousands of likes, retweets and comments.

Along with the tweet, he copied in a link to the teaser recently dropped by HBO that confirmed the date the final season would hit our screens - that's 14 April, for those of you not paying attention at the back.

When it appeared online, fans were more than excited to get a release date, but as is usually the case with teasers and trailers, this one prompted more questions than it answered. Hey, it's what teasers and trailers are there to do!

It shows Jon Snow, Arya and Sansa Stark in the crypts underneath Winterfell where their ancestors have been buried.

But then they come across three statues that look identical to them, before the room appears to have the life sucked out of it - which can only mean one thing: White Walkers are heading south.

But there was one thing that fans noticed - Jon's statue appears to be older than Sansa and Arya's and people want to know what it all means.

Many people have been speculating the statues mean the three will die, with Jon set to meet his demise after the two Stark girls.

As one person commented: "Omg I think I get it! I have a theory! Those are statues of the dead right? Arya's & Sans a look like them are that age because they die at that age. Jon's statue is old because he lives to old age and bran isn't there because he's going to be immortal or some shit."

But Martin hasn't given anything away, preferring to keep everything completely under wraps.

However, even with all the excitement around the trailer, some fans just wanted to know when the author would finally be releasing the final GOT book, Winds of Winter.

"How about that eighth and final book tho..." one person tweeted.

Another said: "Hopefully the next book is out at some point not too long after the show is over.. the show is amazing, but there's always so much more depth in books that shows don't have the time to delve into."

And a third commented: "Where's the Winds of Winter though?"

It's not very clear what will happen or when fans will get the final book, but one thing's for sure: winter is coming.
