House of the Dragon: a fire-breathing trailer for the Game of Thrones spin-off


The HBO channel has unveiled a new trailer for House of the Dragon, the spin-off series of Game of Thrones returning to the Targaryen Succession War.

In less than two months, two heavyweights of fantasy will land on the small screen and will logically maintain a rivalry that is already felt in the promotional campaign of the two series. Just days after Amazon Prime Video shared a first real trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, HBO has also unleashed the horses, or rather the dragons, with a first full House of the Dragon trailer.

The events will take place almost 200 years before the start of the main series and will take up most of its components, namely a war of succession, the quest for the iron throne and dragons who were not yet a near extinct species at that time. On the other hand, this will not be about several families vying for power, but about a feud between the members of the Targaryen family. This new trailer thus presents with more clarity the stakes of the spin-off and in particular the various relationships between the characters.

The series will take place over several years and will revolve around the death of King Viserys I Targaryen played by Paddy Considine which will lead to the Dance of the Dragons and by extension the fall of the house and the disappearance of the dragons. Custom dictates that the king's eldest should resume his title and the rulership of Westeros, which would amount toentrust them to a woman, her daughter Rhaenyra Targaryen who claims her legitimacy despite the mistrust of the advisers and men around her. The young princess will be played by Milly Alcock, while Emma D'Arcy will lend her adult features.

The Cursed Family

The other pretender to the throne will be Daemon Targaryen, the king's younger brother which also claims the estate. Less talkative, the trailer promises some new epic fights, but also more dragons, but also larger specimens than in the main series according to some plans. The rest of the cast will be made up of Olivia Cooke, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Rhys Ifans, Sonoya Mizuno and even Emily Carey.

After the Game of Thrones phenomenon, HBO is therefore not ready to release the writings of George R.R. Martin, House of the Dragon being only the first project on the list after dropping the spinoff series Bloodmoon starring Naomi Watts. Another series on Jon Snow (Kit Harington), the last Targaryen, is notably in development. For its part, House of the Dragon will be released in France from August 22 on OCS.
