Winter may be here, but so is the Night King.
As we draw closer to the premiere date of “Game of Thrones” season 7, HBO has been rewarding fans with new posters and images. If anything, viewers are now more excited than ever!
The latest key art features the Night King front and centre. Not only is the animated promo spooky, eagle-eyed fans have also noticed another major character included in the promo. Yep, there’s more than meets the eye (pun intended).
As the animated poster slowly pans out, it reveals the menacing face of the Night King. However, look closely into his ice blue eye, and you’ll notice another person’s reflection in it. It’s none other than Jon Snow. You can bet that the Night King and the White Walkers will face off in some epic battles when “Game of Thrones” returns.

Also integral to next season’s storyline are Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons. The new image shows Daenerys riding atop one of her fire-breathing beast. While it’s obvious that the photo (below) takes place during a battle scene, we don’t know for sure exactly who Daenerys is fighting.
“The dragons this year are the size of 747s,” director Matt Shakman told Entertainment Weekly. “Drogon is the biggest of the bunch – his flame is 30-feet in diameter!” Co-executive producer Bryan Cogman also added, “There are White Walkers and dragons and once they start to come together the story has to go where it goes.”
“A Song of Ice and Fire”, indeed 😉
UPDATE (25th May):
On cue and shortly after releasing new posters and images for the upcoming of “Game of Thrones”, HBO has now unveiled S7’s latest trailer, allowing fans to have a first good look at the highly anticipated season and what looks like an epic all-out war.
Exactly as promised.
“Whatever stands in our way, we will defeat it,” Cersei can be heard saying, signalling an intense time ahead, while Daenerys can be seen prepping to reclaim her birthright. Jon Snow, on the other hand, is about to lead the North in a showdown with the White Walkers.
“Game of Thrones” season 7 returns to HBO on 16th July.
