To all the fans of Game of thrones (GoT), the wait is almost over as the final season of the popular HBO show, GoT Season 08, has released its first teaser. It is a 39-second glimpse of what all can be expected from the final GoT season.
The teaser starts off with ice and fire sweeping across the map of fictional world Westeros with lot of connotations. Game of Thrones season 8 will premiere sometime in April 2019.
Dubbed Dragonstone, this teaser marks the approach towards Game of Thrones’ final season after a blockbuster run through the past seven seasons. Season 8 will be released after a 20 months gap from the penultimate season, which went off air in August 2017. This is more than the usual gap between other seasons of HBO’s epic fantasy series.
Watch the trailer here.
The short Game of Thrones season 8 teaser shows fire engulfing a lion figure, which is probably a hint towards House Lannister. Finally, at the end of the teaser, ice and fire collide with each other suggesting an epic battle before the series finally comes to an end.
The release month (April 2019) had been announced last month through an information teaser published by the official Game of Thrones YouTube channel. According to reports the cast and crew spent around 10 months shooting for season 8, with about 2 months of those spent in filming just the big battle between the living and the dead. Each episode is said to have costed about $15 million (roughly Rs. 105 crores) to produce.
There is very limited information about what the actual plot or storyline of the Game of Thrones final season would be, thus increasing the inquisitiveness of the fans.
