House Of The Dragon Release Date In India USA UK Mexico Australia Germany HBO Max

The void left by ‘Game of Thrones’ is still noticeable. It doesn’t take long for there to be the talk of a series that could be its successor, but it will be difficult for none to come as close to it as ‘The House of the Dragon‘, the prequel to it that we will see on HBO Max.

The project has been progressing for some time at a slow but steady pace and next we are going to review everything we know so far about this fantasy series that aims to be one of the great television bombings of 2022, or it may even be the biggest of them all in a year in which the competition is not exactly little.

House Of The Dragon Synopsis

The Game of Thrones prequel series titled The House of the Dragon focuses on the Targaryen house, only 300 years before the events narrated in the original fiction. The Targaryen family escaped the destruction of Valyria to settle on Dragonstone, from where Aegon I conquered Westeros.

The Targaryens are one of the great families that ruled the Freehold of Valyria. To win their battles, they bred and trained dragons to fight, always under their shield of a three-headed dragon of flames gules.

In addition to the Targaryens, there is The Sea Serpent or also known as Lord Corlys Velaryon, the Lord of House Velaryon, a Valyrian lineage as old as House Targaryen and one of the most famous nautical adventurers in the history of Westeros.

But every King of Westeros has his faithful hand and that is none other than Otto Hightower, who faithfully and loyally serves both his king and his kingdom. Next to him is Alicent Hightower, his daughter and one of the most beautiful women in the Seven Kingdoms raised in the Red Keep.

Who Are The Creators Of ‘The House of the Dragon’?

George RR Martin and Ryan Condal are the brains behind the series, which can give us quite a bit of reassurance about the tone. Miguel Sapochnik, who directed several episodes of Game of Thrones such as the highly celebrated “Battle of the Bastards “, collaborates with Condal. On this occasion, he will direct, among others, the pilot episode, which is the one that marks the visual hallmark of the entire series. So the spirit is maintained and so is the execution.

Sara Lee Hess, famous for her work as a lead writer on House, also stands out on the writing team., and he will sign three episodes of The House of the Dragon. On the other hand, although Martin has claimed to be very involved in all the writing of the series, he already warned that he would not sign any of the scripts until he finished with the sixth Game of Thrones book. When it comes to Martin, who knows when that will be.

Those who are not going to participate in The House of the Dragon DB Weiss and David Benioff, the creators of Game of Thrones have now been signed by Netflix for 200 million dollars. Recently DB Weiss has confirmed the decision to stay away from the George RR Martin universe onwards. The eleven years of Game of Thrones “was the best decade of their lives,” Weiss has explained, but they’ve reached a point where “it’s time to move on and get excited and terrified about a lot more.”
