House of the Dragon: Release Date, Trailer, Cast, and Latest Updates

House Targaryen’s narrative will be shared. The precursor to Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon, is coming to HBO and HBO Max. So far, here’s everything you need to know. HBO’s House of Dragon, the Game of Thrones prequel series under development for television and HBO Max, is based on George R.R. Martin’s 2018 novel Fire & Blood. It looks to take viewers back to Westeros over two years after the original series ended—and hundreds of years before the events depicted.

House of Dragon will be directed by Ryan Condal (Colony, Hercules) and Miguel Sapochnik, with Game of Thrones writers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss off on their $250 million Netflix deal, working on another adaptation, this time sci-fi. Many Game of Thrones fans may remember the latter’s name from his directing credits. Benioff and Weiss frequently enlisted Sapochnik as a director for the series’ major battle episodes, like “Battle of the Bastards” and “The Long Night.” His dedication to the series should bode well for the future.

It’s unknown whether or not author George R.R. Martin is connected, and if so, how. When his novel Fire & Blood was first published, it received mixed reviews, with some critics describing it as dry and “homework-like.” With Sapochnik at the helm, the series adaption will almost certainly have plenty of well-paced conflicts. Expect big set pieces and battles with a lot of actual effects. So, hopefully, it’ll be the polar opposite of boring and homework-like.

When will House of Dragon be released?

The year—2022—was recently revealed to us by HBO, and that is all we know. Filming has been going on since the beginning of the year. (The series is being filmed in the United Kingdom.) Game of Thrones premiered its first season in April 2011. Season one of House of Dragon was filmed over the summer and fall of the previous year, so it’s possible that HBO will show it in the spring of 2022. Maybe they’re going for a sentimental release—another April release, reminding us of that first spring, when we were all just sweet summer kids, unprepared for the bitter winter that would be seasons 4–8.

Who’s in the cast?

Paddy Considine (The Outsider and HBO’s The Third Day), Olivia Cooke (Ready Player One), Emma D’Arcy (Truth Seekers), Matt Smith (The Crown, Doctor Who), Steve Toussaint (It’s a Sin, Doctor Who), Eve Best (Nurse Jackie, The King’s Speech), Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill, The Amazing Spider-Man), and Sonoya Mizuno (Ex Machina, Crazy Rich Asian

Who are they going to play?

King Viserys Targaryen is played by Paddy Considine. At the Great Council of Harrenhal, the lords of Westeros chose Viserys to succeed the Old King, Jaehaerys Targaryen. Viserys is a kind, compassionate, and decent man who merely wants to continue on his grandfather’s heritage, but as we’ve seen on Game of Thrones, good men don’t often make good kings.

Alicent Hightower is played by Olivia Cooke. She is the most beautiful woman in the Seven Kingdoms and the daughter of Otto Hightower, the King’s Hand. She grew up in the Red Keep, close to the king and his inner circle, and she possesses both courtly charm and political savvy.

Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen is played by Emma D’Arcy. The firstborn child of the king. She is a dragon rider and is of pure Valyrian blood. Many people believe Rhaenyra was born with it all… She, on the other hand, was not born a male.

Prince Daemon Targaryen is played by Matt Smith. Daemon, King Viserys’ younger brother and successor to the throne is an unrivalled warrior and dragon rider who carries the real blood of the dragon. However, it is rumoured that the gods toss a coin in the air whenever a Targaryen is born…

Lord Corlys Velaryon, often known as “The Sea Snake,” is played by Steve Toussaint. “The Sea Snake,” the lord of House Velaryon, a Valyrian family as old as House Targaryen, is Westeros’ most famous maritime explorer. He transformed his home into a strong seat that is even wealthier than the Lannisters and boasts the world’s largest navy.

Princess Rhaenys Velaryon is played by Eve Best. “The Queen Who Never Was,” a dragon rider and the wife of Lord Corlys Velaryon, was passed over as heir to the throne in the Great Council because the realm favoured her cousin, Viserys, merely because he was male.

Rhys Ifans portrays Otto Hightower, the King’s Hand, who is devoted to both his king and his realm. The king’s brother, Daemon, and his status as successor to the throne, according to the Hand, is the biggest threat to the realm.

Mysaria is played by Sonoya Mizuno. She arrived in Westeros with little, has been sold more times than she can remember, and could have wilted…but instead, she rose to become Prince Daemon Targaryen’s most trusted — and most improbable — companion.

Ser Criston Cole is played by Fabien Frankel. Ser Criston is the common-born son of the Lord of Blackhaven’s steward and is of Dornish lineage. He has no land or titles to his name; all he has is his honour and an uncanny ability with a sword.

Milly Alcock plays Rhaenyra Targaryen, the Young Princess. She is the king’s firstborn child, a dragon rider with pure Valyrian blood. Many people believe Rhaenyra was born with it all…but she wasn’t born a guy.

Young Alicent Hightower, the daughter of Otto Hightower, the King’s Hand, and the most beautiful woman in the Seven Kingdoms, will be played by Emily Carey. Alicent grew up in the Red Keep, close to the king and his inner circle, and she displays both courtly grace and political savvy.

Ser Harwin ‘Breakbones’ Strong is played by Ryan Corr. Harwin is said to be the Seven Kingdoms’ strongest man. Ser Harwin is Master of Laws Lyonel Strong’s eldest son and the heir of Harrenhal.

Lord Jason Lannister and Tyland Lannister, played by Jefferson Hall. The Lord of Casterly Rock is Jason. Tyland Lannister is a deft politician with a keen sense of timing.

Grand Maester Mellos is played by David Horovitch. He is King Viserys’ valued counsellor and a voice of reason.

Ser Harrold Westerling is played by Graham McTavish. Ser Harrold has been a member of the Kingsguard since King Jaehaerys’ reign, and he is a paragon of gallantry and honour.

Larys Strong is played by Matthew Needham. Lyonel Strong’s younger son is hauled to court by his father, Master of Laws Lyonel Strong.

On King Viserys’ small council, Bill Paterson portrays Lord Lyman Beesbury, Lord of Honeyholt and Master of Coin.

Lord Lyonel Strong is Gavin Spokes. He is King Viserys’ Master of Laws and Lord of Harrenhal.

House of the Dragon’s Official Release Date

HBO says in the teaser trailer that the show’s ten episodes will premiere in 2022. Given that filming only began this past spring, a premiere in the second half of 2022 appears most feasible. The show is also prone to pandemic production issues—production in the UK was recently halted due to a positive Covid-19 test among the crew—so a firm premiere date is unlikely to be announced anytime soon.

What is the expected number of episodes?

House of the Dragon has been renewed for a 10-episode season on HBO. Martin is a co-creator with screenwriter Ryan Condal (Rampage, Colony), who is also penning the series.

Condal is also a co-showrunner and executive producer alongside Miguel Sapochnik, who directed some of Game of Thrones’ most well-known episodes. (Does the phrase “Battle of the Bastards” come to mind?) Executive producers include Martin, Vince Gerardis (Jumper), Sara Lee Hess (Orange Is the New Black), and Ron Schmidt.

Clare Kilner (The Alienist: Angel of Darkness), Geeta V. Patel (The Great), and Greg Yaitanes (House), who is also a co-executive producer, are among the other directors. Game of Thrones earlier revealed that Sapochnik would direct the pilot.

At the TCAs, Bloys indicated that the choice to make the show was based on the source material. “[When] we looked at House of the Dragon, one of the advantages it had, was it had a text from George R.R. Martin and had the Targaryen history,” he said, per The Hollywood Reporter. “There was a bit more of a roadmap. It was an easier decision to say, ‘Alright, let’s go straight to series.’ It wasn’t like there was anything glaringly wrong about the pilot; it’s just sometimes these things click and sometimes they don’t.”

Popular and visionary fashion designer Virgil Abloh died at the age of 41

After a quiet battle with cancer, Virgil Abloh, the prolific fashion designer known for dressing artists like Kanye West and Kid Cudi, died on Sunday. He was 41 years old at the time.

Abloh’s death was revealed via Instagram and a tweet from LVMH, the parent company of Louis Vuitton, where Abloh had been the men’s artistic director since 2018.

“We are shocked after this terrible news. Virgil was not only a genius designer, a visionary, he was also a man with a beautiful soul and a great wisdom,” In a statement sent out via Twitter, LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault remarked.

According to a statement on Abloh’s Instagram account, he has been discreetly battling cardiac angiosarcoma, a rare and aggressive kind of cancer that affects the heart.

“He chose to endure his battle privately since his diagnosis in 2019, undergoing numerous challenging treatments, all while helming several significant institutions that span fashion, art, and culture. Through it all, his work ethic, infinite curiosity, and optimism never wavered “According to the statement.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Abloh’s career made history in the fashion business when he became the first Black artistic director to manage a division of a prominent French design firm.

He later went on to launch the Milan-based streetwear label Off-White. Abloh was also Kanye West’s creative director for a long time.

Abloh’s dresses became viral this year after Kid Cudi, the singer and rapper, wore them on “Saturday Night Live.” The outfits were created as a memorial to Kurt Cobain, the late singer.

“Virgil designed the dress for me. I told him I wanted to show love to Kurt [with] a floral print sundress and this man made a masterpiece. Thank You @virgilabloh ur a f—– genius!! Love you man we did it!!!” Kid Cudi wrote at the time.

Abloh was motivated to create routes for more equality in art and design, according to an Instagram message.
