Warning: Minor spoilers ahead for “Game of Thrones” season seven.
With less than two months to go until “Game of Thrones” returns to HBO, fans have been eager to see actual footage of the upcoming season. Until now, all we had were official set photos and an extended promo showing Jon Snow, Daenerys, and Cersei all ascending their respective thrones.
On Tuesday, May 23, a new cryptic teaser video was released.
The clip starts with a zoomed in visual of the Night King’s eye. As it moves out and reveals the leader of the White Walkers, you can see tiny flashes of “Game of Thrones” characters in his eye. But that’s it — not even a new line of dialogue.

What does this mean? Is a trailer coming soon? According to the official press release, this is an animated version of the key art for “Game of Thrones” season seven.
Clearly the Night King and the White Walkers are moving south quickly and will likely arrive in Westeros this season.
But we need HBO to release the full trailer is all its wintry and dragon-filled glory, otherwise fans might start going too stir-crazy.
