New Game Of Thrones Season 8 Footage: Up In The Sky! Not A Bird, Not A Plane...

There are new arrivals in Winterfell.


With Game of Thrones Season 8's April 14 release date quickly approaching, HBO has released some new footage just in time for the 2019 Oscars. The footage came in a larger video full of clips from various of the premium cable network's upcoming shows, including Big Little Lies Season 2, Barry Season 2, Watchmen, and more.

The video opens with a shot of ravens flying around the top of the Wall, which isn't anything to write home about. But if you skip ahead to around 48 seconds in, you'll see what's really exciting in the new footage: some recent arrivals at Winterfell.

Check out the video above.

As you can see, Dany's lethal Unsullied army of eunuchs will apparently arrive at Winterfell some time during the upcoming Season 8--and with them, Dany's largest dragon, Drogon. It makes perfect sense that they'd be marching North, given what happened in the Game of Thrones Season 7 finale. I'd bet this will be in the first episode, given what little HBO usually reveals about new Game of Thrones seasons before they air.

There's not much else to glean from this, although it's worth watching the full video for a look at some of HBO's other upcoming shows. Keep checking GameSpot for all the Game of Thrones Season 8 coverage you need leading up to the April 14 release.
