  • Game of Thrones Season 8 Teaser Has a Battle of Ice and Fire

After much debate on the date of the premiere, HBO last month announced that the first episode of the eight season will air on April 2019.

We have a feeling HBO and the folks on 'Game of Thrones' are planning on having a lot of fun teasing us with teaser trailers until season 8 arrives.

The teaser dropped after the Comic Con experience in Brazil, where creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss were on hand to greet fans.

The new video checks in at about 38 seconds in length (with an additional 16 seconds to advertise HBO's YouTube page).

The trailer shows a sweeping map of Westeros with a statue of a wolf being taken over by snow.


All good? Let's point out a few things you may have noticed.

In this teaser, it is quite interesting to see a dragon freeze over as they are usually the representation of fire.

Renfro wonders if the two converging is representative of what happens when a wight-dragon fights a regular dragon. No one is sure, but the White Walkers are on their way to confront the living. So if the season is coming in the summer of 2019, a new trailer is expected to land before the new year.
