This is not a drill! It just dropped and if you are a fan of Game of Thrones then you have to take the time to watch his incredible trailer.
House of the Dragon is set to premiere on HBO and HBO Max on August 21st. In fact, a fan put together this video of “what we know” about this upcoming release!
The movie is based upon a portion of George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood book and will go into detail of House Targaryen 200 years before what we know as Game of Thrones. According to their website, here’s what HBO says about those working on the upcoming show.
Martin and Ryan Condal serve as co-creators on the series. Miguel Sapochnik and Condal are showrunners, and the pair also serve as executive producers along with Martin, Sara Hess, Jocelyn Diaz, Vince Gerardis and Ron Schmidt. Clare Kilner and Geeta Vasant Patel also direct the series. Greg Yaitanes is director and co-executive producer. Game of Thrones and Westworld composer Ramin Djawadi scored the series.
In fact, before you get to see the new trailer for House of Dragon, did you know that HBO has quite few other spin-offs planned for the Game of Thrones’ universe?
- The Jon Snow Sequel Series– In June 2022, HBO announced a new series about Kit Harington’s character following his (SPOILER ALERT) murder of Daenerys Targaryen and banishment beyond the Wall
- Tales of Dunk & Egg– In January 2021, it was reported that a Game of Thrones spinoff based on a series of books written by George R.R. Martin, Tales of Dunk & Egg, was in the early stages of development
- Animated Spinoff??– It wouldn’t be the first time, the did animated “Histories & Lore” DVD and Blu-ray extras detail aspects of Westeros history so they’ve dipped their toes in animation before
