The first official teaser trailer of ‘Game of Thrones season 8’ has arrived with the theme of ‘Fire and Ice’.

The new teaser doesn't feature any new footage from the final season, but it certainly presents a symbolic illustration of just how dire things will be for the Seven Kingdoms in the final six episodes, as the entirety of Westeros is engulfed in fire and ice.

The teaser begins with ice engulfing a statute of a direwolf, the sigil of House Stark. The ice then moves ahead and freezes over a dragon statue, the sigil of House Targaryen. Next, big flames engulf a lion statue, the sigil of House Lannister.

In this teaser, it is quite interesting to see a dragon freeze over as they are usually the representation of fire.

It's all a big tease of a brewing battle between Daenerys, the North, and the Lannisters as they fight each other and the looming threat of the White Walkers during season eight of the HBO series.

Before hitting the internet, the teaser was first shown at a ‘Game of Thrones’ panel at Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil.

The final season of GoT will hit screens on April 2019.
