HBO has revealed the first trailer for 'House of the Dragon'
"House of the Dragon" the highly-anticipated successor series to HBO's fantasy series 'Game of Thrones', is finally here.
HBO released the first trailer on Tuesday, October 5, clocking in at exactly one minute seventeen seconds.
Based on George RR Martin’s 2018 book "Fire & Blood," the new series is set 200 years before the events of the original series.
The high-profile HBO prequel will shed light on House of Targaryen, detailing its rise through Aegon's Conquest and the power struggle between the Targaryens, leading to a civil war known as ‘Dance of the Dragons.’
Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan Condal will serve as show-runners for the ten-episode series, co-created by Condal and Martin.
Miguel Sapochnik has earlier directed six Game of Thrones episodes, including the famous Battle of the Bastards and The Long Night, for which he bagged both Emmy and DGA awards.
The cast includes Paddy Considine as King Viserys Targaryen, Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen, Emma D'Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, and Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower.
Part of a wider deal between HBO and George RR Martin, the new series is only the first of several "Game of Thrones" series in the works.
"House of the Dragon" will debut on HBO Max in 2020. Watch the trailer below:
