Dany and Jorah get character posters and a teaser

We’ve got the Lannisters and the Starks, but no round of Game of Thrones promotion would be complete with the Mother of Dragons herself, Daenerys Targaryen. Yahoo TV has your first look at character posters for Dany and Jorah Mormont.

Season 4 Daenerys Character Poster

They also posted an ominous new teaser, which you can view after the break.

Be sure to hit up Yahoo TV for the Jorah poster.

Winter Is Coming: Love it! Keep it coming, HBO! Who’s up next? The Tyrells? Any chance we can get a Dorne teaser up in this piece?

  • Y’know, It’s really assholic of Yahoo to region lock it.

    Can some kind soul please Youtube it.

    ETA:

    Jorah looks awesome BTW!!!

  • For those who can’t see it: Shadow of dragon flying over CG mountains, then we end up in front of Dany and Jorah.

    Jorah says, “They’re dragons, Khaleesi. They can never be tamed. Not ever by their mother.”

  • Hah. Pity on you Yahoo, stop living in the past. Learn from IGN and EW that know they get a lot of hits from outside the US.

    Blocking videos is just so 2009.

  • Carne,

    What about us weenies using Internet Explorer?

    EDIT: Mayhaps I should Carne, but like Aerys’s kingsguard once I back a horse I stick with it. And like them Yahoo/Ned and Howland Reed have cut me down.

  • Carne,

    Thanks, you’re much better the the Joffrey/Cersei/Ramsay Hybrid asshat at Yahoo who thought region locking a teaser for a show with a massive international following was a good idea.

  • Carne,

    Thanks so much! This will be extremely useful going forward.

    On topic: More awesome CGI goodness in these teasers. I love it. Love the posters too. Dany is hot, Jorah is hotter (and I’m a dude, too) and the dragons are the hottest. More please, HBO!

  • Ahh. Seven Hells! Its really late in my time zone, but I just can’t sleep without seeing the teaser! Where iz mah teaser???

  • If you use Chrome, you should download the Hola Unblocker extension, then you’ll never get region locked again. It’s very useful for us outside the US.

  • Carne,

    Where’d you get that? They really photoshopped him up, didn’t they? He almost looks pretty!

    btw does this mean he’s in the main cast now?

    I saw it on the official FB page of the show. Weirdly enough, Tormund’s poster is apparently official.

  • Makes sense to have a Tormund poster. Wildlings are a major faction this season. I wouldn’t be surprised to have Ygritte and Mance posters soon either.

  • So, Kristov is one of the new regulars, and Pedro , too. And Gwen, finally.

    sati,

    I’d be surprised if we didn’t get a Baratheon family one. They have four regulars, for heaven’s sake. And who knows – maybe Finn Jones or the actor for Mace are among the new regulars, so they can do a Tyrell family one, as well.

  • Greenjones:
    Nezzer,

    Nezzer, why did they kick you off AFOIAF? I thought that was a low blow by them.

    Oh, I think they got tired of my Bolton circlejerk :D
    I said I wanted HBO to show the full extent of Ramsay’s cruelty, then some ultrafeminist, more like a female supremacist, twisted my words, as if I just wanted to see women being raped and tortured and called me a mysogynist. Then I joked that I wanted to see both women and men being tortured and asked him if that was better for him. The mods then decided I was defending torture, which is against the rules, and gave em a perm ban since it was a second offense.

    Months ago I suggested that it could’ve made an interesting story if Ramsay had married the real Arya, and wondered how powerful it would be to see a POV child character being tortured, and then I got banned for the same reason. Apparently only GRRM is allowed to have sick ideas of inflicting suffering in his characters to improve the storytelling. I make a lot of jokes about torture and rape on Reddit, but I don’t think people should take them too seriously.

  • Greenjones:
    Nezzer,

    And meanwhile if you suggested such things on a Hannibal board the writers would hire you!

    Actually, they wouldn’t. Bryan Fuller made very clear that they won’t do rape storylines. Besides, Hannibal’s violence is actually far less “realistic” than that on GoT (or even in the books).

    A female supremacist? Really?…Come on dude, while I don’t agree with your ban your use of that word shows a massive understanding of the meaning behind “white supremacist”.

  • sati,

    Don’t forget Oberyn and Ellaria!

    Can’t wait to see more of those two; gimme more Dorne. Doran, Arienne, and Sand Snakes FTW! I wouldn’t be aggrieved if Quentyn got cut however.

    In case my name didn’t give it away…

  • The posters are great! Just seen Tywin and Tyrion as well on Facebook.

    I do wish Barristan would get one though.

  • So… is that it?

    I mean, not that I want to seem ungrateful, but they leave out an entire house for Tormund Giantsbane?

    Is he very popular? I never noticed so far.

  • Daniela:

    How does it work? I tried with both firefox and chrome.
    I change my flag to US and… nothing!
    Doesn’t work. It unlocked yahoo.com but not the video itself it seems.
    There’s a trick to get this?

  • Carne:
    Sounds like that’s it for today when it comes to posters.

    There’s more on their Facebook account but I have no idea how to link to them. Jaime, Cersei, Tyrion, Tywin and best of all… an awesome one of Joffrey.

  • Satin,

    Hivju has probably been bumped from guest star to main cast member (har), hence the poster. I wouldn’t be surprised if we get more posters this week. Can’t leave out the rest of the main cast!

  • Carne,

    From what the trailers have shown it does seem we’ll be seeing a lot of Mr. Giantsbane this season. They’ve put off the attack from the south until ep. 9, so he will have many episodes to appear in. And of course, if they don’t kill him, he’ll fill his book role in season 5. It would make sense to make him main cast.

  • Carne:
    Satin,

    Hivju has probably been bumped from guest star to main cast member (har), hence the poster. I wouldn’t be surprised if we get more posters this week, especially the Dragonstone gang.

    I’m sure you’re right, but I’m still a bit… miffed that he comes before the Baratheons, or people like Varys, Sam or Shae. I probably wouldn’t say anything if this was Mance, but Tormund? Eh. (Sorry to his fans. The hair and beard are awesome!)

  • Ok, so they’ve got Dany, Jorah, Margaery, LF, Oberyn, Ygritte, Tormund, The Lannisters, The Starks, The Hound. Any other posters I’ve missed?

  • Satin: I’m sure you’re right, but I’m still a bit… miffed that he comes before the Baratheons, or people like Varys, Sam or Shae. I probably wouldn’t say anything if this was Mance, but Tormund? Eh. (Sorry to his fans. The hair and beard is awesome!)

    Yes, I am thrilled that we received these posters but would still like to see some for the Dragonstone crowd. Varys and Sam, too, because they always seems to be left out.

  • cosca:
    Carne,

    Yeah, they’ll probably get one. They are main cast after all. It’s only been a couple of hours people, calm down!

    *huge hysterical outbreak. Dishes breaking everywhere*

  • Satin,

    It amazes me this fandom can wait 6 years for a book to be released with relatively few complaints, but can’t even wait a day before complaining about characters being left off some damn posters.

  • Carne:

    Going by the trailers, it seems like they are going to show a lot of the wildling side of things and in particular Ygritte this season (and boy, does she look angry), and Tormund is with her in almost every scene; they seem to be raiding together, and I think we can expect quite a few conversations between the two of them regarding one Jon Snow. Ciaran Hinds will probably continue being a guest star, and won’t have many more appearances than in the book. There should be more of him next season.

    Sandor’s poster looks very photoshopped, and his head has a very weird shape as a result. But I approve of the apparent decision to emphasize his scars more (in previous seasons, they often shot him from the healthy side of his face or covered the scars with hair – and I think that they also didn’t look this bad since the pilot) – hopefully this means there’s also going to be more of a focus on how he got them, and on his emotional scars.

    You do realize it looks like they are done uploading those, right?

  • cosca,

    and I’m usually fairly reasonable, but this one kind of annoyed me. *shrugs* It’ll pass.

    Annara Snow,

    true, Tormund has been all over the promo material. Oh well. Bring on the Ginger Wildlings!

    sati: You do realize it looks like they are done uploading those, right?

    That was my impression, too, actually. I was hoping to be wrong…

  • Satin,

    The hair and beard are the whole reason for the poster. Tormund gets a poster because he passes the Major League test, i.e., “Look at THIS fucking guy.”

  • sati,

    they’ve been uploading them sporadically over the past few hours. The Lannister ones were posted 4 hours ago, The Stark ones were posted three hours ago, the Margaery, LF and Hound ones 35 minutes ago. It’s entirely possible more will be released.

    Oh wait, sorry, too reasonable.

    D&D R HACKS, DEY H8 STANNIS.

  • GreatJon of Slumber,

    well, there are others that I would rather look at. Not only the Baratheons, this is the last chance for Shae to even get a poster. Everyone else who gets killed or takes a sabbatical gets one. Besides, I want to know who the remaining new main characters are.

    But, at least, they are really prettier than last year.

  • cosca:
    sati,

    I’m surprised you know the word ‘reasonable’. Not surprised however that the meaning of it is lost on you.

  • Satin,

    I think it’s because the Night’s Watch/Wildling conflict is going to be a more central part of the story this year, hence we get a lot more of Sam and Tormund in the promo stuff.

  • Josh: A female supremacist? Really?…Come on dude, while I don’t agree with your ban your use of that word shows a massive understanding of the meaning behind “white supremacist”.

    White supremacist? Where did you get that from? I said female supremacist as in “women deserve more rights than men” kind of thing.

  • Carne: Jorah says, “They’re dragons, Khaleesi. They can never be tamed. Not ever by their mother.”

    I don’t get that line, is it from the books?
    The Valyrians (or at least some of them) were dragon masters for 4000 years!
    Tho I suppose that does not mean the dragons were tame!
    But they were mastered.

  • Blind Beth</strong

    Yep. Next season will feature the missing 2 locations/families.
    Sorry for being obtuse-can't spoiler tag on this device.
    LOVE THESE POSTERS!!

    Jorah doesn’t know shit about a valyrians dragon taming but he should know that Aegon and his sisters tamed 3 dragons.

    Does anyone else think there is an over abundance of new thread posts?

    I think Lightbringer is overdoing it a little…

    This new HBO poster and teaser news should be under one thread so we all can discuss it together instead of 3 seperate threads…

    Sometimes more isn’t better…

    Can the WiC folks gather recent news and cummunicate with each other to not create different threads with subject matter that should be all together as one thread?

    I don’t mean to complain, you guys at WiC are awesome but I enjoy seeing what others have to say about new stuff like this and dividing it into different threads makes for seperate conversations when we all should be talking about it together.

    If you read this and consider a different strategy for creating threads like this I thank you!

    Sometimes it’s better to create a few well thought out and enlightening threads rather than many smaller quick link threads.

    It’s kind of disheartening visiting this site now when there’s 4 new threads created a day…

  • Arthur,

    This problem has been discussed in fairly great detail, for example in this thread. If WIC doesn’t want to change things, that fine by me, even though I agree with you, but a statement from the mods would be nice. :)

    I much prefer 4 threads a day to one thread in two days, with 1000 comments, which get increasingly harder to read without lots and lots of scrolling.
