While the fans are eagerly waiting for the premiere of the "Game of Thrones" season 7, HBO just released a new promo of the epic fantasy drama. Titled 'The Long Walk' featuring the three most significant characters present - Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) marching to their respective thrones.
The 1-minute-32-second teaser, which has already passed 5.5 million views on YouTube on the first day, is supported by the song "Sit Down" by James in the background. According to Forbes, Daenerys is seen walking at the Dragonstone and Jon Snow toddling right at an empty Great Hall of Winterfell while Cersei Lannister claims the Iron Throne, for which she has sacrificed a great deal.
The promo ends with Cersei's cold sigh leading with an even more colder face of the Night Kind, the leader of the Whitewalkers that states the end is near, despite the three rivals attempts to defeat each other in the upcoming "Game of Thrones". However, it was previously reported that the Mother of Dragons will be joined by Jon Snow's army when a picture of them from the sets surfaced over the Internet last year while Cersei may find allegiance in the form of Euron Greyjoy, reported by Metro.
And with only handful of episodes left (seven in Game of Thrones season 7 and six in season 8), it can easily be said that the end is just nearby, which was also said by the showrunner David Benioff earlier this year, reports The Guardian. The new season will see two guest stars in the face of Oscar Winner Jim Broadbent joining the cast as archmaester along with sensational British singer Ed Shereen.
This is the third teaser of the new season released by HBO, previously being "Sigils" and "Reign". "Game of Thrones" season 7 will premiere on July 16, 2017
