When you play the game of thrones you win or you die! HBO has released the first trailer for House Of The Dragon, the highly-anticipated Game Of Thrones prequel series.
The first trailer for the series teases an epic scale fantasy, filled with stunning visuals, epic action and of course, Dragons. 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.
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.
House of the Dragon will premiere on HBO Max on August 21, 2022!
