House of the Dragon trailer reveals future scenarios for Game of Thrones spin-off

HBO has released a new “Weeks Ahead” trailer for Game of Thrones: House of the Dragon, the upcoming prequel series set in the fantasy hit world created by George RR Martin. The trailer, as the name suggests, goes beyond the pilot and teases some of the stories that are expected to unfold over the first few weeks of the new series, which features Doctor Who starring Matt Smith. Dragon House series occurs 200 years before game of thrones. It focuses on House Targaryen, the royal family, in the days leading up to the civil war called “Dance of the Dragons”.

The series is a rare bright spot for Warner Bros. Discovery right now. The company’s reputation suffers as new management seems determined to sabotage HBO Max from within, removing content and frustrating both their subscribers and the talent whose work is being rejected. If the cancellation of almost all bat girl movie is something to go by, it seems most of these moves are to save small amounts of money, to offset the massive debt Discovery incurred to acquire Warner Bros. from AT&T.

You can see the new trailer below.

Paddy Considine, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Fabien Frankel, Sonoya Mizuno and Rhys Ifans star in House of the Dragon. The cast also includes Milly Alcock, Bethany Antonia, Phoebe Campbell, Emily Carey, Harry Collett, Ryan Corr, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jefferson Hall, David Horovitch, Wil Johnson, John Macmillan, Graham McTavish, Ewan Mitchell, Theo Nate, Matthew Needham , Bill Paterson, Phia Saban, Gavin Spokes and Savannah Steyn.

According to the head of HBO Dragon House synopsis, “The prequel series finds the Targaryen dynasty at the absolute height of its power, with more than 15 dragons under their yoke. Most empires, real and imagined, crumble from these heights. In the case of the Targaryens, their slow fall begins nearly 193 years before the events of Game of Thrones, when King Viserys Targaryen breaks a century of tradition by naming his daughter Rhaenyra heir to the Iron Throne.But when Viserys later fathers a son, the court is shocked when Rhaenyra retains her status as her heir, and the seeds of division sow friction throughout the realm.”
