Game of Thrones fans, the trailer for season 7 is finally here...

For those of you who have been hiding behind a rock, Game of Thrones is finally winging its way back for a seventh series — and we couldn’t be more excited.  

After a year of waiting, the HBO hit (arguably the biggest cult fantasy TV show since the dawn of time) has released the trailer for the new episodes, heralding the end of its viewers’ winter.

And, judging by the trailer, it looks like the seven kingdoms are going into an all-out war.

 

At the beginning of the clip, it appears that Cersei is entering full-on beast mode as she discusses how she will conquer every single rival in the north, south, east and west in a bid to keep the iron throne in her grasp.

As Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk)'s ship comes in from the west and a sword is (potentially) sharpened in Dorne in the south, eyes are drawn to Cersei (Lena Headey)’s most prominent enemies in the east and the north.

That’s right: Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) – or, to give her her full title, Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons – is finally crossing the narrow sea.

She’s flanked by a whole hoard of Dothraki warriors, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), and, of course, those dragons. Which means that she’s more than prepared to rebuff Cersei’s declaration that the Lannisters are the last royals “that matter.”

Meanwhile Arya (Maisie Williams), finally journeying through the north of Westeros, is more than determined to fulfill her season one vow to kill the Lannister Queen.

And don’t worry, we didn’t forget about Jon Snow (Kit Harington) – although it seems as if the King of the North has more than enough to keep him busy in Winterfell to join the war down south.

We’re talking, of course, about the White Walkers, who are slowly shuffling their undead bodies towards The Wall – and they seem intent on crossing, too.  Thankfully, Jon Snow no longer “knows nothing”: he’s realised that the Game of Thrones zombies will actually render all battles for the Iron Throne pointless, and that the Lannisters, Targaryens, Starks, Greyjoys, et al need to call a truce, bandy their heads together, and defeat the Walkers before winter finally hits Westeros.

Davos (Liam Cunningham) seems in full agreement, wryly noting: “If we don't put aside our enmities and bound together we will die.

“And then it doesn't matter whose skeleton sits on the Iron Throne.”

Strong words – but will anyone listen to reason?

True to its name, the seventh series will feature seven episodes (rather than the usual ten we’ve come to expect), and will premiere on HBO on 16 July 2017.

Only two more months to go, everyone…
