New HBO Trailer Features Shots Of Game Of Thrones Final Season

In the lead-up to the final ever season of Game of Thrones - and given that they refuse to give us a trailer - we have to take everything that we can get. If that means that we pore over some cryptic fleeting shots of Arya Stark and Jon Snow, so be it.

Yep, there's new footage of the show out. It's part of a trailer put together by HBO to showcase everything that they've got happening in 2019. That's a lot of stuff, by the way, but obviously everyone is mostly bothered about Game of Thrones.

It is the biggest show in the world, after all. That, and we need to soak up every drop of it before it disappears off our screens and we resign ourselves to never seeing any new episodes again.

That day is coming, my friends, so we'd better start preparing.

Anyway, the interesting thing about this footage is that it shows the ice wall at the top of Westeros getting absolutely smashed down. We've seen that already, guys.

However, one shot in the fast-paced and emotive trailer seems to show Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) seeing Daenerys Targaryen's (Emilia Clarke) dragons for the first time ever.

She's as impressed as you would imagine a teenager would be seeing dragons for the first time. That is to say, reasonably goddamn impressed.

To be quite honest with you, that's as much as we can glean from all of the footage. It's going to be cold, there is going to be a bit fight, and Arya Stark is going to be pretty close to dragons.

But we knew that already, right?

We'll have to wait for an actual trailer before we can really get our heads around what might happen

It had been rumoured that they might drop the trailer at some point during the recent Super Bowl. They didn't, in the end.

Instead, they gave us an hilarious crossover between the world of GoT and the 'Dilly Dilly' Bud Light advertising campaign.

Basically, they all got burned to a crisp by a dragon at a jousting match, and one of the guys - the 'Bud Knight' - gets his head squashed in by The Mountain.

He's pretty good at doing stuff like that. After all, he is one big, bad dude.

Either way, it was an excellent bit of trolling. Everyone wants a trailer? We'll give you your trailer. Be careful what you wish for, eh?

Anyway, pore over this footage in the hope that it will keep you going until either a proper trailer, or the series arrives in April 2019.
