The first poster released for the highly anticipated seventh season of HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones teases the upcoming battle between ice and fire.
Last season closed just as Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) set sail across the narrow sea with her army headed towards Kings Landing to reclaim the Iron Throne.
Details on the plot for the seventh season of Game of Thrones are still under wraps but it is expected that the season will feature the battle for the seven kingdoms while the final season could give way to the battle for the known world as mankind comes face to face with the dead army.
HBO has yet to confirm the season seven premiere beyond saying summer, however, Ser Davos himself, Liam Cunningham recently suggested the season could kick off in July.
While we don’t know how season seven will begin, Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, revealed a little over a month ago that the seventh season finale will end on a “huge cliffhanger”. Isaac Hempstead-Wright has also revealed that Bran Stark will be struggling whether or not to tell Jon Snow the truth about his lineage.
The new poster was just released during the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are featured speakers during SXSW along with series stars Williams and Sophie Turner so it’s possible we could learn some new information regarding the seventh season very soon, perhaps even the premiere date.
Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Game of Thrones as we learn it. You can check out the new poster season 7 below.
‘Game Of Thrones’: 5 Villains With Big Plans In Season 7
One of the great things about Game of Thrones, particularly in the novels on which the show is based, is how blurred the lines get between the heroes and villains. Good characters do bad things and bad characters do good things. I’ve written before about how, as the show has evolved away from the books, it has heightened certain elements, making them more arch and a little less gray. Now, as season 7 production progresses in Europe, the story is more clear than ever on what is right and what is wrong. And boy has the show upped the ante on its villains as a result.
We only have two shortened seasons left of Game of Thrones, a fact so profoundly sad, it makes you want to curl up in your castle. Unfortunately, we can’t, as Westeros remains in deeper turmoil than ever before.
The Mad Queen Cersei Lannister has seized the Iron Throne in King’s Landing after blowing up all her enemies with wildfire. Ramsay Bolton may be dead and Jon Snow King in the North, but a slighted Littlefinger will do anything to seize more power. In the Iron Islands, the bloodthirsty new pirate king Euron Greyjoy is preparing for a new invasion. The red witch Melisandre is banished, a wild card in the struggle against the White Walkers, the personification of winter, and their leader the Night King.
