'Game of Thrones' trailer - 'The Great War is here!'

039;Better Call Saul'

Need proof? HBO just released the official trailer for the new season on Wednesday, and it's more than just a teaser.

The trailer gave us a pretty brief recap of where we left each main character - Cersei is planning to defend her kingdom with Jaime by her side.

Game of Thrones showrunner Dan Weiss explained that: "Things are moving faster because in the world of these characters the war that they've been waiting for is upon them".

More scenes of battle, wintry landscapes, and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) riding a horse are edited together. The biggest dragons we've ever seen, if new Entertainment Weekly photos are any indication.

Not only is a great war about to go down across the Seven Kingdoms, but drama as well.

Of course, as Davos reminds all of us in the trailer, this war for the Iron Throne should be secondary to the looming invasion of the White Walkers.

The best clips in the trailer are arguably devoted to Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), who arrives at Dragonstone with her followers to take back House Targaryen and claim her birthright. How great? We will have to wait more than a month to find that out. "And then it doesn't matter whose skeleton sits on the Iron Throne".

Last season, we learned all about the frosty villain's origin when we saw Leaf turn a First Man into the Night King. The Dothraki are fighting someone in Westeros, presumably after disembarking all those boats.

The seventh season of Game of Thrones, consisting of eight episodes, will debut on Sunday, July 16 on HBO. And Little Finger isn't done whispering into Sansa's ear - which is perhaps what drives Jon Snow to rough him up a bit in a quick shot.
