Talk of the upcoming season of Game of Thrones (and a possible prequel) has been circling the web for some time now and after the premiere date was revealed last month, fans now have a teaser to hold themselves over until the full season or trailer arrives.

The teaser was released at the São Paulo Expo in Brazil, an offshoot of San Diego Comic-Con, where showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss appeared alongside stars Maisie Williams and John Bradley.

ET recently spoke with David Nutter, director of "Thrones'" season eight premiere, who teased that the final season will absolutely "live up to the hype".

Following that brief three-second glimpse of footage earlier this year, this animation shows the Houses of Westeros freezing and burning on the table at Dragonstone, clashing together in ice and fire. A statue of a lion is also engulfed in flames before the ice and fire meet in the middle.

It may not have gave too much away but it could certainly be hinting at the war to come in the next series - it seems the wolf represents Jon Snow and his fight against the lion, Cersei Lannister.

In the previous season of "Game of Thrones", Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) made a decision to join forces (and their loins) to defeat the White Walkers.
