‘House of the Dragon’ Trailer Shows Violent Action and Drama

HBO released the first official trailer Game of Thrones prequel series Dragon Housewhich will premiere on August 21st.

The series, which chronicles the turbulent history of House Targaryen under the rule of King Viserys I, takes place approximately 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones. And of course, the Iron Throne seems to be the goal of just about every character.

Based on the book Fire and blood George Martin Dragon House will depict the events of the Dance of the Dragons, the Targaryen civil war between siblings Aegon II and Rhaenyra, who fought for the crown after their father’s death.

The conflict pits the great houses of Westeros, especially the Lannisters and Starks, against each other, culminating in the slaughter of the most powerful dragons of House Targaryen.

Because of this conflict, Westeros did not see a single dragon for generations until Danaeris Targaryen sought to claim the Iron Throne for herself.

Martin is an executive producer along with Vince Gerardis, Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan Kondal. Ramin Djawadi, whose iconic theme for Game of Thrones became a worldwide sensation, will also compose music for the prequel series.

While there are other Westeros-related shows in production, Dragon House is the only spin-off series to have been confirmed. Martin, who signed a five-year production deal with HBO, oversees a number of concepts based on his books, including Tales of Dank and Egg, 10,000 ships, 9 tripsas well as Flea bottom.
