Officially ending the agonising pain of waiting for almost 11 months, the first ever trailer for the Game of Thrones Season 7 was released on Wednesday and it is epic!
There are four forces at work to rule Westeros.
As the first ones, Cersei Lannister is holding the King’s Landing with brother Jaime Lannister as enemies surround them. She has only one motto. “Whatever stands in our way, we will defeat it.”
“We’re the last Lannisters,” says Cersei as Lannister army marches on. Cut to Tyrion Lannister, overlooking a cliff and be astonished by the size of the dragons, Cersei’s words continue, “The last ones who count.” This makes it abundantly clear that Tyrion is keeping his job as Daenerys’ right-hand man.
The second force is of Daenerys Targaryen. She has arrived at Dragonstone to claim what is rightfully hers. “I was born to rule the Seven Kingdoms,” roars the mother of Dragons as she brings Dothraki and the strength of Unsullied.
The third one is the king in the North, Jon Snow. This one may have to struggle with the complicated relationship he has developed with Sansa. Then there is Petyr Baelish meddling away. We get the first look of Arya Stark inching towards Winterfell as the series is just one season away from concluding.
Fourth force and possibly the deadliest of them all is of The Night King and his white walkers. Wise Ser Davos Seaworth imparts his wisdom saying, “If we don’t put aside our enmities, and band together, we will die. Then it doesn’t matter whose skeleton sits on the Iron Throne”
LISTEN TO HIM! Enough with your game of thrones!
After all is said and nothing is done, the trailer showcases a beautiful montage of fight scenes intercut with the love scenes between Missandei and Grey Worm, Yara Greyjoy and Ellaria Sand.
Then Drogon takes flight and it’s terrifyingly majestic!
Watch the trailer. Then rewatch it!
The season will premiere on July 16. Hope you are excited!
