Watch: first trailer for Game of Thrones documentary goes behind the scenes filming in Northern Ireland

HBO has released the first trailer for its Game of Thrones final season documentary, which is set to give fans unprecedented access behind the scenes of one of the most highly anticipated television series' of all time.

According to HBO, Game of Thrones: The Last Watch "delves deep into the mud and blood to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields and car-parks of Northern Ireland".

The trailer for the two-hour documentary opens with the last ever table read at Titanic Studios in Belfast, where much of the hit fantasy series was filmed. 

Series lead Kit Harington can be seen welling up as the cast are addressed by writers D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, who refer to the cast and crew as "family".

The trailer also gives a sneak peak of Emilia Clarke's last scene as her iconic character Daenerys Targaryen, and director David Nutter who said the show "saved my life".

For a year, acclaimed British filmmaker Jeanie Finlay was embedded on the set of the hit HBO series, chronicling the creation of the show’s most ambitious and complicated season.

Queen's Film Theatre will host a sold-out screening of the documentary on May 25 which will be followed by a Q&A with director Jeanie Finlay.
