New action-packed 'Game of Thrones' teaser for Season 5 arrives

We've already seen two full-length trailers for Season 5 of HBO's "Game of Thrones," but HBO posted a new teaser and behind-the-scenes video to get us amped up for the season's debut on April 12.

Spring may finally be arriving, but winter is still coming. On April 12, Season 5 of the hit fantasy show "Game of Thrones" starts, and HBO has released a new 30-second teaser to hype the upcoming season. It's also posted behind-the-scenes footage from filming.

The teaser will seem somewhat familiar to those who've already seen the trailers, centering around Lord Varys' conversation with Tyrion Lannister about how the Seven Kingdoms needs a leader who is strong, loved by millions, has a powerful army and has the right family name.

As the two converse, several battle scenes we've already seen in the first two trailers flash across the screen, ending in Daenerys Targaryen entering her dragons' chamber, presumably to awaken her children for the upcoming war over the Iron Throne.

Check out the teaser at the top of this post, then watch a few behind-the-scenes videos HBO posted to its "Game of Thrones" YouTube channel over the weekend that show the set design and storyboard processes.
