The frost, which likely represents the looming threat of Winter and the approaching White Walkers, continues until it reaches a dragon of House Targaryen.

Fire begins to blaze forward from the opposite end, overwhelming a lion of House Lannister.

Then the elements collide in the center explosively.

The final frame teases the April 2019 release.

Though the teaser doesn’t feature any actual footage from the show, it certainly gives fans and idea of the drama to come. 

The fire and ice of the trailer are a nod to the George RR Martin book series the show is based on, A Song Of Fire And Ice. 

GOT stars Maisie Williams (Aria Stark) and John Bradley (Samwell Tarly) joined creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss for the trailer’s debut in Brazil.

There, Benioff and Weiss revealed how they first imagined the series ending at the end of the third season.

Earlier in the week Vladimir Furdik, the actor who plays the Night King, dished details about the show’s sure-to-be epic final battle to the Hungarian website Sorozat Wiki.

‘In the third part of the last season, there is a battle that the creators intend to be the biggest in television history. Almost the full episode will be about the battle, it will take about an hour.’

The final season will be just six-episodes long.
