The impatience rises among the fans of Game of Thrones with the imminent arrival of the prequel “House of the Dragon” which will focus on the past of the Targaryen family. And who says Targaryen says big dragons. The latter finally show themselves in the trailer for the series before the broadcast of the first episode scheduled for August 22.
House of the Dragon: the dragons finally show themselves
The first teaser of the series House of the Dragon which takes place approximately 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, had left the fans on their hunger. Indeed, no dragon appeared on the horizon. George RR Martin had yet revealed that there would be more than fifteen! HBO corrected the situation by revealing the first trailer of the show since two dragons show themselves there. At the beginning and the end of the video.
A very attractive new preview, which strongly reminds us of the parent series, whether it’s the statement of the names of the families that we know well (Targaryen, Stark, Baratheon), or the musical notes of the credits of Game of Thrones. No doubt: we are back in Westeros! And all the ingredients seem to come together to make House of the Dragon the new phenomenon on HBO.
As a reminder, the series will return to the highlights of House Targaryen, and in particular the dynasty succession war, which led to the famous “Dance of the Dragons”. It is based on the two volumes of “Fire and Blood” written by George RR Martin.
Character level, we will find Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy), Queen Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke), Viserys Targaryen (Paddy Considine), or Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith).
In the video, we witness the coronation of a young Rhaenyra, with the lords of the kingdom swearing allegiance to him. But the tensions multiply over the years, and its legitimacy is put to the test when it is found a few years later.
Regarding the broadcast date, the series will be available in France from August 22on SCO in US+24.
In addition to this first trailer, the channel also shared the posters highlighting the heroes of this new series:
