More than two years after the end of “Game of Thrones”, HBO returns us to Westeros with the prequel series “House of the Dragon”. Discover the very first images of these episodes above, which will arrive in 2022.
House of the Dragon is coming in 2022
HBO has just uploaded the first images of House of the dragon, the prequel series of Game Of Thrones which will arrive in 2022. We discover there the ancestors of Daenerys Targaryen, 200 years before this last does not put to fire and blood Westeros. Among them, we find Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma d’Arcy), Queen Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke), Viserys Targaryen (Paddy Considine) or even Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith).
Still based on the writings of George RR Martin, and more particularly on the two volumes of “Fire and Blood”, the series will revisit the highlights of House Targaryen, and in particular the dynasty’s war of succession, which led to the famous “Dance of the Dragons”.
Tempting first images
With this first teaser, HBO offers us a short preview of what awaits us in House of the dragon. We discover King Viserys I on the Iron Throne. And above all a time indication: the series will take place 200 years before the end of Game Of Thrones. So approximately in the year 105, that is to say two years after the arrival on the throne of the latter.
It was during his reign that the tensions within his family multiplied to lead to the famous Dance of the Dragons. We should therefore attend these episodes at the beginning of these tensions.
Who says Targaryen obviously says dragons. If we don’t see any of them in action in this first teaser, they are nevertheless present. With this sentence first of all: dreams didn’t make us kings, dragons did (It was not the dreams that put us on the throne, but the dragons). George RR Martin had said a few days ago that there would be 17 in total.
The music of this teaser is also very close to that of the mother series, and for good reason: it is Ramin Djawadi, the star composer of Game Of Thrones, who signed it.
