As the world was pretty busy with the first Hollywood awards of the year, Golden Globes 2019; there’s something that HBO pulled up in the meanwhile. The show makers revealed what can be called the first footage of season 8 of their hit show ‘Game of Thrones’. 

Barely a few months left for the final season to roll out (it’s happening in April this year), makers revealed footage featuring three important characters -- Sansa Stark, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. The self-proclaimed queen of the seven seas, the ‘Mother of Dragons’ is shown being greeted by Sansa as they set foot in the northernmost kingdom, Winterfell. 

Sansa is seen greeting her and says: “Winterfell is yours, your grace”, but not too convincingly. It looks like she disapproves of the thought but does it as Jon was earlier declared to be King of the North. While Daenerys gives her an approving look, Jon doesn’t look too sure about what will follow.

Then shown are characters Brienne of Tarth and Ser Jorah Mormont.

Another bit from the trailer also shows the Night King riding zombie dragon, Viserion. Check out the clips here:

It took the makers two tears to make the final season. The final season will feature six episodes of almost 1.5 hours run time.
