Two new clips from HBO’s “Game of Thrones” season five are here, delivered via “The Sight,” a promotional campaign launched last fall and thematically tied to the upcoming season. What’s more, there’s also a new teaser poster that you can check out in the gallery viewer below! The first new clip features Brienne of Tarth and Podrick Payne while the second offers a conversation between Jon Snow and Mance Rayder. Check both of those out in the video players below!
Also called “Greensight,” The Sight is, in the original books, an incredibly rare prophetic ability that some children are born with. An animated “Histories and Lore” special feature on the season three set of “Game of Thrones” briefly explores the legend of The Sight with Isaac Hempstead-Wright narrating in character as Bran Stark.
Season 5 of “Game of Thrones” is set to premiere April 12 at 9 p.m on HBO, and will include new cast members Alexander Siddig, Toby Sebastian, Nell Tiger Free, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Jessica Henwick, Rosabell Laurenti Sellers, DeObia Oparei, Jonathan Pryce, Hannah Waddingham, Enzo Cilenti, Michael Condron, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
Series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss return as executive producers and showrunners for Season 5, which will be based mostly on the fourth and fifth novels of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire book series, “A Feast for Crows” and “A Dance with Dragons.”
