Game of Thrones: Watch the Haunting First Season 7 Teaser Trailer Now

Like a glass of Arbor gold or the brief, vibrant life of Oberyn Martell, the first Season 7 teaser trailer from Game of Thrones is an ephemeral treat that therefore must be savored.

The HBO fantasy series released the first quasi-glimpse at its upcoming season (debuting Sunday, July 16), which you can watch above. Of course, it doesn’t give too much away: We see three of GoT‘s primary players — Daenerys, Jon Snow and Cersei — walking silently through the corridors of power as James’ “Sit Down” plays in the background. (A hint for them to sit on the Iron Throne, perhaps?)

They each have a distinct kingdom to rule over: Daenerys in a stony room with a throne carved out of rock; Jon Snow in what appears to be the common room at Castle Black; and Cersei in the Great Hall at King’s Landing, sitting on the Iron Throne with that new crown perched on her head. They’re not alone, though. When Cersei exhales, we can see her breath, and the camera zooms out to reveal the icy blue eye of a White Walker. Oh yes, winter is always coming, isn’t it?

  2. Cas says:

    Awesome. Listen I NEED Cersei to die at the end of the series. She does not deserve to be Queen. Side note, love the actress.

  3. Kevin Tran says:

    GoT Season 7 feels like a summer blockbuster doesn’t it.

  6. missy says:

    They’re all going to need to bury the hatchet and work together to defeat the White Walkers.

    Ain’t nobody gonna be sittin’ on the Iron Throne… if King White-y kills ’em all.

    BRING ON SEASON 7 :D

  7. Sephits says:

    Pretty sure Jon’s in Winterfell

    • Wordsmith says:

      That would make sense, but I think I remember that room with the long tables from the various big gatherings of the Night’s Watch.

    • UW says:

      yes, it’s the hall in Winterfell where Lyanna Mormont chastised several lords for “refusing the call” at the end of last season, and the room ended up cheering John as King in the North.

    • Thea says:

      Its definitely Winterfell. The room they were in when Jon was named King in the North.

    Yes Deanerys go get your Thorne!!!!

  9. Wordsmith says:

    What castle do we think Dany is in? Dragonstone? It doesn’t seem familiar, but I doubt they built it just for this teaser.

  10. Unknown says:

    GoT Season 7 teaser has irony & symbolism all rolled into one. It’s a clever teaser that makes you water at the mouth in a state of grueling anticipation.

    This upcoming season is truly going to be a final four chess battle. I can’t wait.

  11. Sherae says:

    Jon Snow is at Winterfell, not Castle Black. Daenerys is at Dragonstone.

  12. Tronald Dump says:

    More than twenty years later, James is still awesome.

  13. Al says:

    I hate the fact all these three actors are English, they should be Amarican because it is America TV show.

  14. Lame says:

    AI, that is the silliest remark I’ve read in quite a while.

  15. Liz says:

    Don’t get comfortable Cersei… that throne is sharp!!
