Williams was 'broken' by filming Game of Thrones scenes

Game Of Thrones Cast

The "Game of Thrones" Season 8 trailer finally arrived on Tuesday, teasing the final battle for Westeros and the Iron Throne. It's packed with ice, fire, Starks, Lannisters, and all the good stuff sure to give all us wall-watchers plenty to ruminate on in the coming weeks.

We then see swaths of soldiers readying ships for battle and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) looking up in awe to see dragons soaring above her in Winterfell. The war between the living and the dead will be the longest filmed battle scene in cinematic history and was apparently as grueling to make as it would be to live though. And yes, we catch a glimpse of the Night King as well.

The six-episode finale will air on Sky Atlantic, bringing to a conclusion the saga of who will rule Westeros - nearly two years after the end of the previous season. "I know death", she says in a voiceover. "I look forward to seeing this one", she says, menacingly.

Game of Thrones season 8 returns April 14 on HBO in the U.S., and the next day on Sky Atlantic in the UK. There are six episodes in Season 8 and it has been speculated that each could run well over 60 minutes. In the finale of Game Of Thrones 7, through Bran Stark's vision, the audience learned that Jon Snow is the son of Ned Stark's sister Lyanna and Rhaegar Targaryen, the eldest brother of Daenerys. And while hopes and expectations from this season as a whole are high, the trailer that dropped today sort of disappointed us.

There's a whole lot of dragon action going on in this first trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8, including the barest hint that Jon Snow may pick up dragon riding himself.

The trailer comes despite the fact that creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss told Entertainment Weekly they were not fans of teasers. I don't know if we were crying because we were sad it was ending or if we were crying because it was so f**king tiring.
