Attention Game of Thrones fanatics! Now you can fly with Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons courtesy of HBO and a new teaser clip that debuted on Yahoo TV earlier this week.
The thirty second Game of Thrones video clip starts with a sweeping aerial shot over and through the mountains of Qarth. Shot from the point of view of one of Daenerys’s pet dragons, the impressive footage parlays the feeling as if you’re perched right atop the dragon’s wing, eventually ceasing to a halt mere yards away from Daenerys Targaryen, played by British actress Emilia Clarke and her trusted companion Jorah Mormont, played by Scottish actor Iain Glen. With apprehension plastered on their faces, Mormont, as he’s done all too often in the Game of Thrones series thus far, does not hesitate to share what both must be thinking:
“Your dragons, Khaleesi, they can never be tamed,” Jorah tells Daenerys. “Not even by their mother.”
The Game of Thrones clip then fades to a shot that reads “Valar Morghulis,” an old Valyrian saying, that when translated, means “All Men Must Die.” This apprarently is the slogan for season four as HBO released several more teaser clips with that same tagline attached, including one, as reported by Inquistr, that may hint at hint at Tyrion’s fate. A third “All Men Must Die” clip also revolves around the Stark Family children, who, up to now, have been put through the ringer up to say the least.
As for Daenerys Targaryen, this isn’t the first teaser to reveal what challenges she’ll be facing. Posted to HBO’s Vine account, another brief clip shows Targaryen sitting very queen-like atop her throne in the newly liberated city of Meereen. Game of Thrones producers and Emilia Clarke herself have hinted that Daenerys will face the equally daunting challenge of mastering her new found position as queen with also containing her now, fully grown dragon companions. In the fifteen minute preview special called Game of Thrones Season 4: Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing, that aired at the beginning of February, executive producer David Benioff sets the stage for things to come:
“When the dragons were first born they were adorable babies,” Benioff explains. “Each season they grow and each season they become more dangerous.”
Clarke even goes on to elaborate the obvious:
“Because for godssakes their dragons,” she deadpans in the video. “What’s to stop them from killing anyone they want?”
Game of Thrones season four debuts on HBO April 6th.
