Game Of Thrones It was the greatest fantasy series in history, and although it ended last year, not everything has been said about the world of Westeros. HBO has already announced Dragon house, which will serve as a prequel.
If you want to know all about the new series, congratulations, you’ve come to the right place. Here, we tell you all about its cast, plot and much more. And in the meantime, why not revisit the eight seasons of The iron Throne?
When will House of the Dragon air?
HBO president Casey Bloys confirmed Deadline that the series should be released in 2022. He also assured that the castingswhile scripts are being written.
Who will participate in House of the Dragon?
George RR Martin, author of the novel’s original saga, participates in the development of the first spin off of Game Of Thrones, with Ryan Condal, creator of Colony, who is the main writer of the series and one of the executive directors.
He will work alongside Miguel Sapochnik, who will also direct the pilot episode and a few others from the first season. Sapochnik was already the director of “ The Battle of the Bastards ” and “ The Winds of Winter ”, two of the most acclaimed chapters of Game Of Thrones
HBO has already confirmed that Paddy Considine will play Viserys I, who has a key role in Westeros, and no doubt the Civil War will play a major role in Dragon house. You will know it by Peaky Blinders O The foreigner.
The company also confirmed that Emma D’Arcy (a British actress who appeared in Hanna and Truth seekers) will be in charge of interpreting Princess Rhaenrya Targaryen, Viserys’ daughter and who will eventually succeed to the throne.
On the other hand, Matt Smith, what did you see in Doctor Who and The crown, he will take on the role of Rhaenrya’s husband and uncle. Yes, it seems impossible to make a series based on Game Of Thrones without incest.
Finally, we also know that Olivia Cooke (better known for Motel Bates and Player One loan) will play Alicent Hightower, the daughter of the Hand of the King. He will make things very difficult for the Targaryens, as he will also fight for the Iron Throne.
What will House of the Dragon talk about?
As the name suggests, House of the Dragon will revolve around House Targaryen, to which Daenerys belongs. The series is based on the novel Fire and blood by George RR Martin, which contains enough material for several plots of the first season.
Rumor has it that the events of Dragon house will take place 300 years before the series Game Of ThronesSpecifically, when Aegon Targaryen first invaded Westeros, he proclaimed himself king and declared war of conquest. The end of this war resulted in the formation of the Seven Kingdoms, and that’s when the Iron Throne was created.
Now that we already know that Rhaenyra Targaryen and Alicent Hightower will appear in the series, we know that the Targaryen Civil War, also known as the Dance of the Dragons, will be explored. It was then that Westeros split in two to defend either candidate for the throne.
We don’t know if Dragon house will you focus on this story, or if this will be just one of the many plots you explore.
We also suspect that other famous houses from Martin’s universe will appear, such as the Starks, Lannisters, Baratheons, and Tyrells. Actors from the original series are unlikely to appear given the story takes place so many years ago (unless the Night King decides to make an appearance.
In any case, what will certainly not be missing will be the dragons, as confirmed by Martin himself.
