New Game Of Thrones Season 8 Teaser Points To An Epic Showdown

New Game Of Thrones Season 8 Teaser Points To An Epic Showdown

The executive producers of Game of Thrones Season 8 are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield; co-executive producers are Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis, George R.R. Martin and Bryan Cogman; and producers are Chris Newman, Greg Spence and Lisa McAtackney.

The new clip gets symbolic, showing ice consuming statues of a wolf and a dragon on the Painted Table at Dragonstone, while fire engulfs a lion, rushing to meet the incoming chill. The above video is bittersweet in a way because it's a sign that we are actually getting closer to the release of Season 8, however, absent from the video is any actual footage from the show's upcoming swan song.

HBO released the new tease at the São Paulo Expo in Brazil for the Comic Con Experience. There are still two fire dragons to one ice dragon at this point though, so that inevitable clash is sure to happen, possibly in favor of the fire.

On the one hand, there is dramatic visualization of the fact that fire - presumably Daenerys' dragon fire - must fight the icy forces of the White Walkers. "Hopefully, the audience will like it, starting season eight, but I'm very confident that they will", he said, admitting that while many characters have died on his watch in scenes like the Red Wedding, he just couldn't reveal if the trend continues.
