5 takeaways from the new ‘Game of Thrones’ teaser

Last night, HBO released a new teaser trailer showing Arya, Sansa and Jon reuniting in the crypts underneath Winterfell and facing down the approaching White Walkers.

There is a particularly dark feel to the teaser as the family stand before statues of themselves which might indicate that a tomb awaits them in this season.

Winter is here and we're finally blessed with the first Game of Thrones official teaser that fans have been dying to see. The feather takes us back to the very first season of "Game of Thrones" when Robert Baratheon visited these same crypts and left it there on Lyanna's grave because she was the only woman he ever truly loved.

Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, said that filming the final scenes "broke" the series' stars.

Game of Thrones creators were sure to release a teaser, just enough to get us all guessing without really giving anything away.

The last season will consist of six episodes as per the latest buzz. In a series of flashbacks shown in the season 7 finale, it was revealed that Rhaegar Wednesday Lyanna after annuling his marriage to Elia Martell.

Announced by HBO, the date was accompanied alongside a teaser that features Jon Snow, Arya Stark and Sansa Stark walking through the Crypt of Winterfell. While Sansa's and Arya's appear exactly as they do in life, suggesting that the sisters might die before the season is up, Jon's statue looks a bit older than he does now.

HBO boss Richard Pepler told Variety: "It's a spectacle". The idea would be that Bran travels through time to save the human race, only to get stuck in the body of the Night King, something that ultimately can't be undone. "They've exceeded the bar. The reaction I had while watching them was, 'I'm watching a movie'".

Now that we know when winter will arrive, fans cannot only start preparing for the show's return but also the end of an era-both in and out of Westeros. "Everybody's in for an extraordinary treat of storytelling and of magical, magical production".

The long wait for the conclusion of Game of Thrones is nearly over.
