HBO has dropped a jam-packed sizzle reel of its upcoming 2019 shows, including new footage from Games ‘ forthcoming final season.
In the video above (beginning at the 48-second mark), one of Daenerys’ dragons soars over what looks to be the beginning of an epic battle — and there’s going to be quite a bit of those in the upcoming episodes.
“In terms of sheer scope, there is a lot in this season that outstrips the Battle of the Bastards sequence [from Season 6],” series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss previously saidl” of Season 8, adding that “the things we’re doing for the final season go a good deal beyond” previous battle scenes, in terms of technical difficulty.
Game of Thrones season eight is scheduled to premiere on HBO April 14, 2019.
