Only a little over a week to go House Of The Dragon be released on the HBO Max platform. the prequel to Game of Thrones comes to the streaming service with the expectations to million to know what is new in the series based on the novel by George RR Martin.
It matters little the now distant end of game of Thrones. Although the wound of the very weak closing of the series is still open, the fans have learned to value the development of the stories, about which there is no discussion: it was really impressive.
We are now at the gates of a new production that promises to at least match the level of filming offered by the eight seasons of Game of Thrones. So what should we know about this new series before pressing the play button on HBO Max?
House Of The Dragon
House Of The Dragon is based on the novel fire and bloodjust like Game of Thrones was with Song of ice and fire, both written by George RR Martin.
The first thing everyone wants to know is how many seasons this is going to last. And the reality is that, as happened with Game of Thrones, nobody knows, since Martin has not yet written the second part.
This first one, in case it is successful, has enough material to develop the series while it continues with the closure.
Being called the House of the Dragon, we must imagine what family the plot will be turned on. This part is based on the time when the Targaryens sat on the Iron Throne and ruled the seven kingdoms with their dragons.
It takes place 200 years before what we already saw in Game of Thrones, so let’s not expect to see the characters we already met. Some will think that the fact that the Targaryens dominate with their dragons, prevents opposition from the seven kingdoms, and it really is, since apparently the threats in the political game will come from within the family itself.
House Of The Dragon Characters
This production will revolve around two characters, the queen Rhaenyra Targaryensplayed by Emma D’Arcy and her half-brother Daemon, in the skin of matt smith. Both fight the reign after the death of the king Viserysaccording to The sixtha noble king worked for Paddy Considine.
