Are you excited for mid-April 2019? If you’re not, you’re either working over the holiday weekend or you’re not a Game of Thrones fan. The immensely-popular series is coming to an end but every conclusion needs a beginning. The first official trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8? That qualifies.
If you’re a rabid fan of the violent dragons-and-bloodshed series, you might have already caught the official Season 8 trailer (never mind that teaser from earlier this year) but if you somehow missed it (you’re probably logged out of Twitter. Check that) then here it is.
We’re not going to delve into too much detail. Some of you are avoiding spoilers and we can totally get behind that. All you really need to know is that those who have survived the journey up to this point are gathering for a final showdown against the forces that oppose them (a statement so generic that it could apply to every film from Ghostbusters 2 to Mission Impossible: Fallout).
Will there be battles? Yes. Will there be losses? Yes. Will we finally see who wins the game of thrones (and, conversely, who dies)? That… will have to wait until 15 April at the very least here in South Africa. It’s been a long journey but it’s coming to a close. Hope you don’t have any favourites this time around…
