UPDATE: In addition to the trailer there’s also a new poster for Game of Thrones Season 3, which you can see above, click it to embiggen. And as I’ll be repeating later on, motherfuckin’ dragons!
After debuting last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live! the trailer for Season 3 of Game of Thrones has become available online. I’ve already watched it about 10 times… I’m that excited. This trailer perked me up more than a cup of coffee. I mean, I mean– oh, just watch it!
First off, DRAGONS. Motherfuckin’ dragons. No longer tiny enough to sit on one’s shoulders but instead fly around and burn whole ships! I was curious how big they’d be this season knowing they’ll be asked to perform larger incendiary tasks, but seeing one flying around in the trailer was a sure treat.
A couple other things I picked out: Thoros of Myr with his flaming sword, The Hound fighting members of the Brotherhood, something nasty happening to Jaime, Dany and her new Unsullied army, Mance Rayder and wildlings and white walkers, oh my!, Joffrey being a dick, and Tyrion sporting that lovely battle scar. Actually, I’m a little disappointed by his scar because as it’s described in the book he loses half his nose, but I understand they couldn’t actually mutilate Peter Dinklage. And besides, he was already far more attractive than Tyrion had any right being.
But still, guys, DRAGONS! I’m so pumped. What did you think of the Season 3 trailer? Does it have you quaking with excitement for March 31st? If you’re looking for screencaps of every awesome moment head on over to Winter is Coming’s Tumblr.
