I think that was Girion in the trailer Can't Post

If you pause at 1:39, there is a shot of a man firing a catapult which resonates strongly with a Dale as it is being destroyed - also the shot after that is the same shot found in the AUJ prologue of a watch tower bursting into flames.

I'm pretty sure that this is the scene PJ was referring to in the Empire interview about seeing in the AUJ extended edition - with Girion firing arrows at the dragon.

I'm positive that we'll get more of the visuals of the dragon in a flashback on the attack on Dale once more (perhaps Bard recounting the history of his ancestors) - which certainly seems a possibility considering they've gone through so much labour to build a complete set and use it for just a few seconds in the AUJ prologue.
