After what feels like a very long wait, Game of Thrones is coming back for Season 7, and it looks intense.
Set to music artist James’ track Sit Down, the three contenders for the Iron Throne are shown walking briskly and with purpose down long hallways towards their individual thrones. (They’re not fit — yet — for the Iron Throne and to rule all the Seven Kingdoms.)
Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) is in the Red Keep, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) looks to be in the Great Hall of Winterfell and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) takes her throne in what we’re assuming is Dragonstone.
Then Cersei exhales, and out comes a cloud of frosty air. Winter is here. War is here.
This teaser trailer, titled Long Walk, is made from entirely new footage, and appears to be hinting to viewers that one of these three hopefuls is going to take over the world. That is, if the foreboding Night King (leader of the terrifying White Walkers) at the end of the trailer doesn’t take care of them all first.
We’ll all have to wait until summer to see what it all means.
Game of Thrones Season 7 premieres on July 16.
