The first official trailer for Game of Thrones season 8 is FINALLY here

Is anyone else counting down the days until Game of Thrones returns?

Well, we have a while to wait yet, but there is some good news.

The first official trailer for the final season of the show has been released, and it has us awfully excited.

The 60-second clip was unveiled at the São Paulo Comic Con, and while it doesn’t give a whole lot away, we still freaked. 

In the trailer, we see fire and ice sweeping through map of Westeros, meeting in the middle.

The ice washes over a wolf and a dragon, while the fire takes over a lion.

Each animal obviously represents a different family of Westeros, leaving us with so many questions.

The wolf probably represents Jon Snow, and the rest of the Stark clan, while the dragon obviously represents Daenerys Targaryen.

The lion, on the other hand, is the symbol of the house of Lannister – so perhaps Cersai will finally meet a well-deserved demise? Who knows.

It has been a pretty long wait for Game of Thrones fans, but rumour has it, season eight will hit our screens in April 2019. 

We’ll be waiting.
