The first official trailer for the highly anticipated third season of “Game of Thrones” has been released by HBO (late-night host Jimmy Kimmel got first dibs and debuted it Friday night on his show).

Returning cast members featured in the new footage include Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington), along with Season 3 newcomers Mance Rayder (Ciaran Hands) and Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju).

Watch out for dragon mama Daenerys, who appears to have a full-grown dragon — and a full-on army — in her arsenal this season, a battle-scarred Tyrion and a big moment for Jon Snow. See what you can look forward to when the stormy saga resumes in March. WATCH THE TRAILER ABOVE.

It’s been eight months since the “GOT” second-season finale, so fans are more than ready to get back in the “Game.”
