Game of Thrones Prepares for War in Sweeping Final Season Trailer

Game of Thrones Season 8 Set to Include 'The Longest Consecutive Battle Sequence Ever Committed to Film'

We know it's likely that you devoted Game of Thrones fans out there aren't likely to be satisfied by watching the final season trailer - which dropped Tuesday - just once.

When the screen fades to black after the season 8 finale, I imagine a lot of us will feel the same way...although obviously Headey's emotions are more acute.

And yet here we are, with around 90 seconds of new footage to obsess over. There's her sis, Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) having a geez at Daenerys Targaryen's (Emilia Clarke) dragons as they flap over Winterfell. It's the first time most of the main characters will come face to face in one scene since the show's debut in 2011.

Until now, we've had to content ourselves with a trickling out of images from the final season and the musings of various cast members about the range of emotions the final season left them with. Today's trailer also comes just over a month before the multiple Emmy victor returns for its final season April 14. In an episode of the season, we will be seeing the Night King army facing off against the land of the living to decide the fate of all of Westeros.

Game of Thrones returns April 14 on Sky Atlantic.

Little is known about Game of Thrones penultimate season beyond what has been shown off in past trailers, though season 8 will feature what HBO has described as "the longest consecutive battle sequence ever committed to film".

The trailer disappointed us in a way that there was not much "new" content that we expected to see.

And if you were expecting epic for the end of the HBO blockbuster, this almost two-minute peek certainly hits the target like a kingslayer.

"They're coming. Our enemy doesn't tire". It was like it was created to make you think, Right, I'm f-king sick of this. I keep thinking: "'Whose story am I telling right now?'", he said.

Game Of Thrones is based on George RR Martin's series of fantasy novels, A Song Of Ice And Fire, and adapted for television by David Benioff and DB Weiss.
