Game of Thrones Exceeds Expectations With Their 'Winter Is Here' Trailer


This post was originally published on Outer Places.

At this point, any little glimpse we can get from Game of Thrones season seven is greatly appreciated. Even the relatively short teaser that shows Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow, and Daenerys Targaryen sitting on their thrones felt exciting.

This new trailer, though, blows everything we've seen previously out of the water. Scenes of war, dragons, and White Walkers will do that, and it helps when that dragon is very big.

Winter is finally here, and with it comes a slew of different fronts upon which wars are about to rage. We've known for a while that the upcoming season will finally see recent Westerosi politics come to a head in gruesome battles that feature a record-breaking human barbecue, but the newest look shows just how big the scale will be this time around. It's almost worth the agonizing wait for new episodes.

The problem, of course, with the extra long wait, is that various set leaks and creator comments mean that we've already learned all of the big things that are revealed in this trailer — everything from the return of serial murder victim Beric Dondarrion to the introduction of much larger Drogon has been detailed extensively already.

What's new though, is the discovery that everything we've been promised might actually live up to the version our imaginations have concocted, which is a rare feat. We've been promised that season seven of Game of Thrones is going to move at a much faster pace than anything we've seen before, with less political intrigue and more bloody, vicious warfare, and it looks like that promise is going to be fulfilled.

As the show draws closer towards its inevitable conclusion, it seems that things are going out with a bang. If you've been watching Game of Thrones for years, hoping for the long promised chaotic war between various Westeros factions, you're finally about to get your wish.

Game of Thrones season 7 premieres July 16, 2017 on HBO.
