Over a year after the original anticipated release date, HBO has finally shared the premiere date of the new season of Game of Thrones.
Not only this, but they have added a trailer, teasing to what is coming up in the next installment of the hit franchise.
When? We will be getting a first glimpse of the action on April 14th in the US and the 15th in the UK (at 2am). It will be shown at the same time, but due to the time difference, it will air on different dates.
The teaser-trailer lives up to its name, as it only offers a feel of what to expect, without many clues as to what the season has in store. The hair raising clip shows Jon Snow, Arya and Sansa Stark with their buried ancestors in the crypts under Winterfell. When they pass the graves of their loved ones, they find three statues identical to themselves.
Apart from this subtle taste, fans know that this will be the final season and air six episodes. HBO CEO Richard Plepler has told fans that each episode will be like ‘watching a movie’.
Plepler is lucky enough to have seen the episodes and told Variety: “It’s a spectacle. The guys have done six movies. The reaction I had while watching them was, ‘I’m watching a movie.'”
Another tease from one of the actors Vladimir Furdik, was that in episode 3 we will witness perhaps the biggest battle scene in TV history. He told Hungarian website SorozatWiki: “In the third part of the last season, there is a battle that the creators intend to be the biggest in television history.
“Almost the full episode will be about the battle, it will take about an hour.”
While Furdik didn’t reveal all the details, he said: “There will be a lot of dragons, the Night King will return, and the biggest battle of the season will be completed.”
