HBO dropped the first trailer for the upcoming seventh season of Game of Thrones, and it’s just about as ominous as you’d expect.
The trailer, appropriately titled “Long Walk,” focuses on three major characters who are sure to be locked in a power struggle in Season 7: Jon Snow, freshly resurrected and ready to take over the north; Daenerys Targaryen, who has finally crossed the sea into Westeros; and newly crowned Queen Cersei, who is not going to give up her hard-won power without a fight. The wordless trailer ends with a nod to the bigger threat, namely, the White Walkers (a.k.a., climate change). Also, yes, that is James’s “Sit Down” soundtracking the three claimants’ walk to the Iron Throne.
Season 7 premieres July 16; watch the full trailer here:
