The first look of Game of Thrones Prequel is here!
The Game of Thrones prequel series House of the Dragon is now finally beginning to take shape. Two years after Game of Thrones ended, HBO has now officially given fans another glimpse of Westeros. However, this time it’s going to be set in a different time when Targaryens are ruling the seven Kingdoms and even Ned Stark is 100 years from being born.
House of the Dragon – first look!
House of the Dragon is set 100 years prior to the events of Game of Thrones, during the infamous Targaryen Civil War named the ‘Dance of the Dragons’. As the name suggests, this battle includes Targaryens riding many dragons to battle each other for the Iron Throne. In the official photos released by HBO, we see Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen; and Steve Toussaint as Lord Corlys Velaryon. Here are the official photos:
Furthermore, we see Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower and Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower in their first official photos from the Game of Thrones prequel.
Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan Condal will serve as co-showrunners as well as producers alongside George RR Martin and Vince Gerardis. However, House of the Dragon is not the only Game of Thrones prequel that HBO has in mind. HBO has planned three more shows, namely “9 Voyages”, “Flea Bottom”, and “10,000 Ships”. 9 Voyages is about the life of Corlys Velaryon, husband to Rhaenys Targaryen. Meanwhile, Flea Bottom focuses on the poorest and most diverse region in all of King’s Landing, where Ser Davos and Gendry both hailed from. And lastly, 10,000 Ships is a story of Nymeria and the Rhoynar, who migrated from the river Rhoyne in Eassos to Dorne in Westeros and established their new base in Dorne with the Martells. Therefore, Game of Thrones fans are in for an incredible ride, provided that HBO gets all of this right.
