HBO Announces Targaryen Prequel, House Of The Dragon
On Wednesday, TV Shows Ace reported that HBO gave the green light to the new Targaryen prequel, House of the Dragon.
Very little is known about the surprise series. We do know that it is based on the George R. R. Martin novel Fire & Blood. GoT scriptwriter Bryan Cogman originally developed the story. Then, Martin worked alongside Colony creator Ryan Condal for the series script. No actors have been attached to the series, but we do know that Miguel Sapochnik will direct the pilot episode. Cogman has since left HBO and will not be involved with House of the Dragon.
HBO programming president, Casey Bloys shared that the network is excited to explore “the origins of House Targaryen and the earlier days of Westeros.” House of the Dragon will take place 300 years before Game of Thrones. There are a lot of complex characters and a George R.R. Martin novel to consult. This begins with Aegon’s conquest and 131 years afterwards. This series ends with the Dance of the Dragons. This is the Targaryen Civil War.
The other Game of Thrones prequel, Bloodmoon, starring Naomi Watts was canceled just hours before the Targaryen prequel was announced.
Will there be dragons? Well, the title seems to indicate that is a yes. But what else do we know? Perhaps the actress that played the mother of dragons knows something about the Targaryen prequel?
