Nine new reasons to get pumped for Game of Thrones

Nine new photos from the upcoming Game of Thrones season premiere have been released, as if there wasn't enough excitement already.

The images were posted by HBO this morning.

They show different scenes from the first episode, The Red Woman, including Daenerys talking with Khal Moro - played by series newcomer, New Zealand actor Joe Naufahu - and looking scared.

There are two images of Sansa and Theon, one of them crossing a river and another of them hiding under a tree.
