Been feeling disappointed by the Game of Thrones finale since 2019? This may just cheer you up. HBO has released the official trailer for the Game of Thrones prequel, titled House of the Dragon.
Watch the trailer here:
Story: The show is based on George RR Martin’s Fire and Blood and set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones. House of the Dragon will follow the Targaryen civil war, known as the Dance of Dragons between siblings Aegon II and Rhaenyra for the Iron Throne after the death of their father, King Viserys Targaryen.
The Dance of Dragons is especially important as it causes the death of the most powerful dragons in the House of Targaryen, taking centuries for Westeros to meet a new one.
Cast: House of the Dragon will be featuring:
Apart from the actors, Ramin Djawadi is returning as the music composer and the show‘s co-creators are Martin and Ryan Condal. House of the Dragon is being directed by Clare Kilner and Geeta Vasant Patel.
To say that the trailer release has longtime GOT fans excited would be an understatement. Many are comparing House of the Dragon with Lord of The Rings' new show, The Rings of Power. Here is what they are saying:
