Just as it did during the Golden Globes, HBO has released another mega-trailer featuring new footage from all of its new and returning shows airing this year. Of course, the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones was among the shows included in the tantalizing teaser.

While the last snippet from Season 8 featured Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) turning Winterfell over to Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), this new mini-clip shows Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) watching with awe as Dany's army of the Unsullied marches into Winterfell, a dragon flying above them. It's a real jaw-dropping moment that signifies just how long it's taken all of these characters and pieces to come together.

Footage from the Watchmen series conceived by Damon Lindelof (Lost, Prometheus) as well as the upcoming His Dark Materials adaptation can also be found in the trailer. Like all of the other promotional material released for Watchmen thus far, it bears no resemblance to the influential graphic novel by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.

Watch the trailer below:

In terms of the Watchmen content, we have our second look at Jeremy Irons' Ozymandias (supposedly an older version of Adrian Veidt) and our first glimpse at Regina King's currently unnamed character.

Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Sara Vickers, Adelaide Clemens, Andrew Howard, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Jean Smart are also a part of the show's ensemble cast.

Game of Thrones Season 8 debuts on HBO Sunday, April 14. There are no set premiere dates for Watchmen or His Dark Materials just yet, but they will arrive sometime this year.
