A?new?alliance?has been formed in the game of thrones.
《权利的游戏》出现了新的同盟。

The Kingdom of Nabisco confirmed to PEOPLE that they would be releasing new limited edition Oreos this spring branded after HBO’s hit fantasy series Game of Thrones.?
Nabisco公司向公众确认,他们在今年春天会推出美国HBO大热的奇幻剧《权力的游戏》主题的限定奥利奥。

The cookies are rumored to be the traditional chocolate wafers and vanilla cream, but with GoT designs modeled after the show’s White Walkers, House Lannister, House Targaryen, and House Stark, though Oreo could not confirm those details just yet.
据说主题饼干还是传统的巧克力薄饼加上香草奶油,但加上了些权游的设计,参照了该剧的异鬼、兰尼斯特家族、坦格利安家族和史塔克家族,尽管奥利奥目前还没有证实这些细节。

News of Game of Thrones Oreos comes as the show is entering its upcoming eighth and final season, which will finally premiere on HBO in April — two years after its last season aired.
《权利的游戏》宣布,在距上一季播出两年后,第八季即最终季即将回归,四月份将在HBO首播。

As always, the plot of what will happen in Game of Thrones season 8 is being kept under lock and key.
一如既往,《权力的游戏》第八季的剧情还是保密得死死的。

But one thing fans do know for sure? Author George R.R. Martin, whose A Song of Ice and Fire novels form the basis for the series, won’t be appearing as previously hoped.
但是有一点是粉丝们可以确定的,那就是该剧原著《冰与火之歌》的作者乔治·R·R·马丁不会像之前预期的一样在新一季里露面。

Entertainment Weekly reported on Wednesday that series showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss tried to get Martin to travel to North Ireland, where the show filmed, to do a cameo on the upcoming season, but Martin declined. Instead, he choose to stay in his New Mexico home so he could work on the highly anticipated sixth novel in his series, The Winds of Winter.?
《娱乐周刊》周三报道,权游的主创David Benioff和Dan Weiss想请马丁来拍摄地北爱尔兰,在这季里客串一下,但马丁拒绝了。他选择留在新墨西哥州的家里,这样他就可以继续完成这个系列小说备受期待的第六部《凛冬的北风》。

Meanwhile, if Game of Thrones isn’t your thing, Oreos has recently released a slew of new flavors — including Carrot Cake Oreos and their biggest cookie to date, Most Stuf Oreos.
同时,如果你对《权力的游戏》不感兴趣,奥利奥最近推出了一系列新口味——包括胡萝卜蛋糕奥利奥和史上最大份的奥利奥饼干Most Stuf Oreos。

In December, they also added Dark Chocolate Oreos to the list of permanent flavors.
十二月,他们还新加了黑巧克力奥利奥作为常驻口味。

And, Game of Thrones premieres on HBO April 14.?
最后,《权利的游戏》4月14日在HBO开播。
