KXIP vs KKR Live Score

"Game of Thrones" season eight returns on April 14.

HBO has released the first trailer for the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, teasing the epic final battle every fan of the show has been waiting for. And it's pretty awesome.

People are also excited at footage of Sansa Stark and Arya seeing the dragons for the first time.

Game of Thrones season 8 returns April 14 on HBO in the United States, and the next day on Sky Atlantic in the UK.

And Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) also had a short speaking part, in which he vows: "I promised to fight for the living". We get a glimpse of Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow enter Winterfell with their very large army and how Jamie Lannister reveals that he will fight the impending war against the Army of the Dead, as he states "I promised to fight for the living and I intend to keep that promise". And to round it all off, we see the likes of Gendry and Brienne Of Tarth lining up to face off against the army of the dead. "I'm looking forward to seeing this one". Cersei Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen do not speak.

Jon takes over the voiceover for an intimate shot of him and Dany; he says "They're coming". To prepare, Maisie Williams, who portrays Arya, had to begin training one year before filming began Williams told Entertainment Weekly, "I skip the battle every year, which is freakish since Arya's the one who's been training the most".

Dolorous Edd, Tormund Giantsbane and Beric Dondarion with his sword aflame are seen cautiously walking a stone hallway together, confirming they survived the Night King's destruction of the Wall. Director David Nutter - responsible for three episodes of the final season - added: "The fans will not be let down".

Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, told EW that "nothing can prepare you for how physically draining" it was filming the battle scene.
