40 days before the premiere of the eighth and last season of Game of Thrones (In the early hours of April 14 to 15 in Spain), HBO has released the first full trailer. In it all the main and secondary characters are seen, great battles are intuited, the dragons are seen and the arrival of the white walkers at the gates of Winterfell is dropped. The clip begins with Arya saying, "I know death, it has many faces, and I am impatient to see it." In Spain the eighth season can be seen on HBO (which has all the deliveries in full) and Movistar +.
Although the eighth season of Game of Thrones it will be shorter than usual, the chapters will be longer than normal, and each one is expected to have a duration that exceeds the time. Although the budget of the series is not officially known, US media estimates that each chapter will have a budget of 15 million dollars.
This season will have the greatest battle ever filmed for television and that, according to the producers, could occupy a whole episode. It was recorded in Northern Ireland for 55 consecutive nights, as told by assistant director Jonathan Quinlan in a message that he later deleted. "You will not see anything like it again," he said. The director of that chapter will be Miguel Sapochnik, the person in charge of The battle of the bastards. Some scenes of these expected last episodes have also been recorded, again, in different locations in Spain, especially in the province of Seville.
In addition, the universe of the series will remain alive, as HBO prepares a prequel to Game of Thrones that will be starring Naomi Watts, who will play "a charismatic member of high society hiding a dark secret."
