Winter is coming…again. HBO has released the first full-length trailer for the Game Of Thrones prequel series, House Of The Dragon. The trailer is full of stunning visuals and more than a few clues of what’s in store for fans of George R.R. Martin’s beloved fantasy series. Nine character posters have also been released, featuring the mysterious lead characters of the highly-anticipated prequel.
House Of The Dragon is the first of what will surely be many Game of Thrones spin-offs, taking place 200 years before the events of the original series. As you might have guessed from the title, House Of The Dragon will tell the story of the rise and eventual fall of House Targaryen. The series might not include characters from the original series, but viewers will certainly feel like they’ve jumped back into the world of Game Of Thrones.
Watch the trailer below:
Much like the original series, House Of The Dragon has a large ensemble cast including Matt Smith (as Prince Daemon, Viserys’ younger brother), Paddy Considine (as King Viserys I), Emmy D’Arcy (as Princess Rhaenrya, Viserys’ first child and his heir apparent), Rhys Ifans (as Ser Otto Hightower, the Hand of the King), Olivia Cooke (as Lady Alicent Hightower, Otto’s daughter), Fabien Frankel (as Ser Criston Cole, a knight with eyes for Rhaenrya), Steve Toussaint (as Lord Corlys Velaryon a.k.a. The Sea Snake), Eve Best (as Princess Rhaenys Velaryon) and Sonoya Mizuno (as Mysaria, confidante to Daemon Targaryen).
House Of The Dragon was created by Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin and Ryan J. Condal, based on Martin’s novel Fire & Blood. Ryan J. Condal and director Miguel Sapochnik are executive producers and co-showrunners on the series.
