House of the Dragon Trailer: Welcome Back to Westeros!

Game of Thrones left a sour taste in the mouths of many viewers.

Many, MANY viewers, considering the Game of Thrones finale was flat-out awful.

But that doesn’t mean the series as a whole wasn’t one of the best in cable network history — and it also doesn’t mean that we aren’t crazy excited for House of the Dragon.

A prequel to the beloved program, the series will be set 200 years before the events in the original series, which became HBO’s biggest hit ever and the most Emmy-winning drama of all time.

The upcoming show also comes from author George R.R. Martin (based on his book Fire & Blood), along with co-creators and showrunners Ryan Condal (Colony) and Miguel Sapochnik (Finch)

In this new trailer, we finally get a glimpse of what life was like in Westeros all that time ago, as one unseen character wonders aloud:

“What is this brief, mortal life, if not the pursuit of legacy?”

Viewers also hear the names of familiar Houses — Stark, Baratheon, Velaryon — whose members pledge fealty to Paddy Considine’s King Viserys Targaryen.

The king has announced his daughter, Princess Rhaenyra, as his heir… yet not all residents of this area are willing to accept the young woman as their leader. 

(Somewhere, Daenerys can totally and complete relate.)

It doesn’t take long for chaos and violence to ensue, however. violence ensues.

The preview at one points cute to a blond-wigged Matt Smith (portraying a Targaryen) looking especially pugnacious and a determined Olivia Cooke (also playing a Targaryen) with Rhys Ifans whispering in her ear.

And then, in the video’s closing moments, we catch a glimpse of the fire-breathing pride of the Targaryen clan, looking as frightening and as fearsome as ever.

“History does not remember blood,” a character mutters ominously.

“It remembers names.”

House of the Dragon stars Paddy Considine (Peaky Blinders) as King Viserys Targaryen, Olivia Cooke (Ready Player One) as Alicent Hightower, Emma D’Arcy (Wanderlust) as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Matt Smith (Doctor Who) as Prince Daemon Targaryen.

“I think we were very respectful of what the original show is,” Sapochnik has said.

“It wasn’t broken, so we’re not trying to reinvent the wheel. House of the Dragon has its own tone that will evolve and emerge over the course of the show.

“But first, it’s very important to pay respects and homage to the original series, which was pretty groundbreaking.”

House of the Dragon premieres on Sunday, August 21.

House of the dragon trailer welcome back to westeros

House of the Dragon Trailer: Brace Yourselves, HBO Fans. It’s Here!

Winter, as HBO viewers know all too well at this point, is no longer coming.

But dragons?

Well, that’s another story altogether.

About two and a half years after Game of Thrones aired its wildly disappointing finale, the cable network has shared its first-ever look at the show’s wildly anticipated prequel, House of the Dragon.

The series takes place 200 years before the events of the original program, and it tracks the rise and reign of the Targaryen family as rulers of Westeros.

In the brief teaser featured here, Matt Smith is seen as Prince Daemon Targaryen … as he narrates images of Targaryens in the throne room, jousting, fighting and engaging in some seriously intense moments.

We also see a Targaryen king sitting on the Iron Throne, which is depicted in the preview as a much larger and more imposing structure in this series than the one in Game of Thrones.

“Gods. Kings. Fire. Blood,” teased HBO in the Tweet that announced this trailer.

Daemon’s ominous voiceover, meanwhile, makes the following dramatic statement about the Targaryen dynasty to close out the video:

“Dreams didn’t make us kings; dragons did.”

The 10-episode series will air at an unspecified date in 2022.

In addition to the preview, HBO also announced several new cast members for House of the Dragon, including:

  • Wil Johnson as Ser Vaemond Velaryon, the younger brother to Coryls Velaryon and commander in the Velaryon navy.
  • John Macmillan as Ser Laenor Velaryon, the son of Corlys Velaryon and  Rhaenys Targaryen.
  • Savannah Steyn as Lady Laena Velayron, the daughter of Corlys Velaryon and Rhaenys Targaryen.
  • Theo Nate as Ser Laenor Velaryon and son of Corlys Velaryon and Rhaenys Targaryen.

Previously announced cast members include Smith… Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen… Steve Toussaint as Lord Corlys Velaryon… Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower … and Rhys Ifans as her father, Otto Hightower.

In an earlier release, HBO described Daemon as the “younger brother to King Viserys and heir to the throne. A peerless warrior and a dragonrider, Daemon possesses the true blood of the dragon.

“But it is said that whenever a Targaryen is born, the gods toss a coin in the air…”

Rhaenyra is “the king’s first-born child, she is of pure Valyrian blood, and she is a dragonrider.

“Many would say that Rhaenyra was born with everything… but she was not born a man.”

This teaser was unveiled on Tuesday as part of a promo event for HBO Max’s rollout in Europe
