Game of Thrones returns to HBO for a seventh season on July 16, 2017.
Yesterday, the new teaser was released offering a glimpse at what’s to come.
Using voiceovers to touch on significant events of the previous six seasons, the one and a half minute teaser chronologically captures the Mad King’s rule, Ned Stark’s beheading, the Red Wedding and Cersei Lannister’s ascension to the Iron Throne—as giant stone versions of the major house sigils crumble to ash.
In the end, we can hear Jon Snow speaking of the coming battle between the White Walkers and the living. “There is only one war that matters. The Great War. And it is here,” he says as the camera pans out to what appears to be the vivid blue eye of the Night’s King.
