HBO has just unveiled its brand-new, smoking-hot poster for the upcoming, highly anticipated third season of Game of Thrones.

So what’s on the new poster?

Have a look:

It's the silhouette of a flying dragon, Khaleesi.  Guess it was too expensive to CGI a complete dragon on the poster. (Just kidding!)

Whereas season one had Lord Eddard ‘Ned’ Stark (Sean Bean) sitting the Iron Throne and season two had a hand grasping a crown, now we have one of Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) children taking flight in shadow.

Yep, her babies are growing up and Deanerys will no doubt have to struggle and deal with that fact in the upcoming season.
