House of the Dragon’s New Trailer Shows Intense Rivalry For Throne and Fierce Dragons
For those who have not seen it, HBO has released a lengthier and more detailed teaser for its Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon, which is full of dragons and Targaryens with their trademark white hair.
On August 21st, HBO (streaming on HBO Max) will launch a prequel to Game of Thrones that takes place just before a civil war erupted between House Targaryen’s rival heirs. As depicted in the A Song of Ice and Fire books (and HBO’s Game of Thrones), House Targaryen is nearly extinguished by the infighting in this civil war. The series is based on George R.R. Martin’s novella, The Dying of the Dragons, which was published in Fire & Blood in 2018.
Prince Daemon Targaryen is played by Matt Smith, and Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen is portrayed by Emma D’Arcy.
