Fire and Ice Collide in Game of Thrones Season Eight Teaser

Game of Thrones season 8 teaser Winter has engulfed Starks and Targaryens

Game of Thrones season 8 teaser Winter has engulfed Starks and Targaryens

HBO dropped the 39-second clip overnight and nearly immediately people started speculating over what it all means despite it not showing any footage of the much-anticipated season eight.

The teaser was first shown at a "Game of Thrones" panel at Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil.

It's not safe, however, to be literally anywhere in Westeros, as the Night King and his army of White Walkers are now moving south towards Winterfell, and who knows where else, bringing Winter with them.

Thrones' swan song will get underway in April 2019; HBO has not yet released an exact airdate or time for the premiere.

The new teaser shows fire and ice sweeping against each other over Westeros.

Though there's no new footage of the show, we see an intense war waging between ice and fire. But the teaser also clearly aligns the Wolf and Dragon (Houses Stark and Targaryen) - with ice, and the Lion (House Lannistetr) with fire. Ice and fire, indeed.

Williams asked Weiss and Benioff when they first figured out how the epic fantasy series would end, and the creators revealed that the plan came together at the end of the third season.

Kit Harington stars as Jon Snow on the HBO hit series "Game of Thrones". "They've really done a tremendous job in servicing the drama and the characters and so forth, and there are many ups and downs and twists and turns all across the "Game of Thrones" society and the world they are", he added.
