The different day, HBO dropped a brand new trailer for House of the Dragon, its hotly anticipated prequel collection to Game of Thrones. Watch under!
This is our first actually good have a look at the collection since means again in October of final yr, after we acquired a shorter, much less full trailer; now, House of the Dragon really has dragons in it!
We know the broad outlines of the story: it’s 200 years earlier than Game of Thrones and the Targaryens are on the peak of their energy. King Viserys I Targaryen (Paddy Considine) names his eldest youngster Rhaenyra Targaryen as his inheritor, even when naming a lady goes in opposition to precedent.
