The newly-released featurette shares an in-depth look at the coming season with cast interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.
"Game of Thrones" hypes up its anticipated return with "Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing". The 15-minute preview for season 4 aired on Sunday night, February 9 on HBO and has been made available online.
As promised, the featurette offers an in-depth look at the upcoming season, with the cast and crew talking about the characters' storylines. Emilia Clarke, in particular, reveals that her character Daenerys Targaryen is facing a revolt from one of the cities she liberated.
Clarke also discusses Dany's "outgrowing" dragons, one of which is flashed at the end of the video. As Ser Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) warns Dany that dragons "can't be tamed," the actress says it symbolizes how Dany is losing control of herself and losing control of what she's doing.
Elsewhere in Westeros, Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) share a bond that Tyrion doesn't have with his other siblings. Tyrion is in trouble and facing a public humiliation, but his older brother helps him a lot this season.
There's also a longer look at the Purple Wedding of King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) and Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer). Kit Harington talks about how the relationship between his character Jon Snow and Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) changes after he betrayed the wildlings, while Maisie Williams who plays Arya Stark says the "good guys" are coming back and making a stand.
In the interviews, the actors also answer fans' questions about their favorite character, what they do for fun during a break, and the saddest death of a character so far.
"Game of Thrones" season 4 is set to premiere April 6, at 9 P.M. on HBO.
