With all the talk about planned prequels to Game of Thrones, by the time you read this a dozen more may have been announced, you may forget that there are more episodes of Game of Thrones on the way. The seventh season is arriving this summer, but we haven’t seen much of what’s to come yet. That’s changed now, as the first full-length, official trailer for the new season of Game of Thrones has finally arrived.
Look at this point you’re either in on Game of Thrones, or you aren’t. The show is seven seasons in, so if you haven’t been watching it, this trailer would probably be baffling. Also, it’s weird that you are watching a trailer for a show you don’t watch. So much has happened in the world of Westeros since the show debuted lo those many years ago, and as the show draws closer to its culmination the action is ratcheting up even higher.
The show returns to HBO on July 16. War is coming, but isn’t that always the case on Game of Thrones. There will be blood and dragons and political intrigue. Hopefully this trailer will tide you over for a little while.
