The official trailer of House of the Dragon, the Game of Thrones prequel, came out and fans are buzzing. The return to the world of deceit, blood, and dragons finally shows us the major players. Alongside the trailer, nice character posters got out and they look intriguing. It’s already clear that the Targaryens have a more important role in this story than the original Game Of Thrones.

After the lackluster ending of Game of Thrones, fans of the world of Westeros hope that this reignites positive outlooks. By this, I mean book readers and avid fans of Game Thrones wish for the negative taste from that show to be eradicated. They hope that this show is able to do it and bring back the love for the fantasy epic.

What is House of the Dragon?

House of the Dragon Source: HBO

George R.R. Martin (based on his book Fire & Blood) and showrunners Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik created the new series. Paddy Considine (Peaky Blinders) portrays King Viserys / Targaryen and Olivia Cooke (Ready Player One) portrays Alicent Hightower. Emma D’Arcy (Wanderlust) portrays Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Matt Smith (Doctor Who) portrays Prince Daemon Targaryen. HBO is technically calling this new footage a teaser trailer, despite the fact that the network released an official teaser trailer in October and this video is longer.

House of the Dragon is a forthcoming HBO fantasy drama series created by George R. R. Martin and Ryan J. Condal. It’s a prequel to the 2011–2019 television series, Game of Thrones. It’s premised on Martin’s 2018 novel Fire & Blood. Set two hundred years prior to the start of Game of Thrones, the show follows the initial stages of House Targaryen’s demise, the events immediately prior to the Targaryen civil war, known as the “Dance of the Dragons,” and the conflict as a whole.

HBO ordered House of the Dragon straight to series in October 2019, with casting to begin in July 2020 and principal photography to begin in April 2021 in the United Kingdom. The show is set to premiere on August 21, 2022. The first season has 10 episodes.

What George R. R. Martin Had To Say About the Show

House of the Dragon Source: HBO

George R. R. Martin, the originator of A Song of Ice and Fire, asserted about the TV series in November 2018. He said that a “potential spin-off series would be solidly based on material in Fire and Blood.” By September 2019, Martin and Ryan J. Condal’s Game of Thrones prequel show, which “tracks the beginning of the end for House Targaryen,” was on the verge of receiving a pilot order from HBO. In the ensuing month, House of the Dragon’s order happened, straight to series. Condal and Miguel Sapochnik are the showrunners. They won an Emmy for directing the episode “Battle of the Bastards.” They indeed hired Sapochnik to direct the series premiere and future episodes.

HBO is technically calling this new footage a teaser trailer for House of the Dragon, despite the fact that the network released an official teaser trailer in October and this video is longer. When discussing the show, George R. R. Martin had this to say:

“I’ve seen a rough cut of the first episode. And loved it. It’s dark, it’s powerful, it’s visceral… just the way I like my epic fantasy,” he said. “Just as with Game of Thrones, most viewers will only have heard of a few of the actors, but I think you are going to fall in love with a lot of them. (Only to have your heart broken later when… but no, that would be telling),” he said. “I think the Targaryens are in very good hands. Anticipate away. I do not think you will be disappointed.”

What do you think of House of the Dragon? Do you love what you’ve seen so far? Do you even like Game of Thrones?
