With the Season 5 premiere getting closer by the day, HBO has released a new poster for the highly-anticipated return of Game of Thrones, featuring Peter Dinklage's Tyrion Lannister and Drogon, one of the three massive dragons raised by Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). As you may recall, in the Season 4 finale, the fugitive Tyrion left Westeros and set sail for Essos, where Daenerys currently rules in the city of Meereen. You may also recall that, in the trailer released last month, Varys (Conleth Hill) told Tyrion to seek out the dragon queen Daenerys. Could this poster be a hint that Tyrion and Daenerys are forming an alliance?
It's also completely possible that this scenario never actually happens, especially since it isn't a part of George R.R. Martin's books. However, there has been plenty of talk that Season 5 will stray from the beloved novels, including deaths of some characters in the series who are still alive in the books. With that being said, Tyrion and Daenerys' potential alliance is certainly not out of the question, but we'll have to wait and see.
Season 5 will feature a number of new cast members, such as Alexander Siddig (Doran Martell), Toby Sebastian (Trystane Martell), Nell Tiger Free (Myrcella Baratheon), Deobia Oparei (Areo Hotah), Enzo Cilenti (Yezzan), Jessica Henwick (Nymeria Sand), Rosabell Laurenti Sellers (Tyene Sand), Keisha Castle-Hughes (Obara Sand), Jonathan Pryce (High Sparrow) and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Malko). Take a look at the artwork below, and stay tuned for more posters and footage as the countdown to Game of Thrones Season 5 continues.
