Home of the Dragon trailer has arrived — out of the blue. On Tuesday, HBO Max unveiled the primary teaser trailer for its first Recreation of Thrones prequel spin-off sequence Home of the Dragon, as a part of its launch date announcement into Europe. (HBO Max arrives October 26 in Europe.) The primary Home of the Dragon trailer units up the sequence’ setting — 200 years earlier than the autumn of the Iron Throne — when the Targaryens took over Westeros with the assistance of dragons. The one-minute Home of the Dragon teaser does not inform us a lot, nevertheless it does construct the temper of the sequence.
“Gods. Kings. Fireplace. And blood,” an unseen speaker says within the Home of the Dragon teaser trailer, whereas we’re proven glimpses of the first characters: the Hand of the King pin on Otto Hightower (Rhys Ifans), Kign Viserys I (Paddy Considine) holding the sword and sitting on a throne, and his youngsters Prince Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith) and Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy) on a seashore. There is a temporary glimpse of a Targaryen in fight, a tourney, and Otto’s daughter Alicent (Olivia Cooke).
“Goals did not make us kings. Dragons did,” the speaker returns as we see a Targaryen lady whose face we won’t see strode in direction of a a lot totally different Iron Throne than the one we bear in mind from Recreation of Thrones. This one is rawer, extra pointy, and there are swords welded into the bottom throughout it. That is mighty harmful, I need to say, particularly for any rulers predisposed to a drink. The primary Home of the Dragon trailer then wraps with a title card and reiterating its 2022 launch window.
Created by George R.R. Martin and Ryan Condal and based mostly on Martin’s Fireplace & Blood e-book, Home of the Dragon is about 200 years previous to the occasions of Recreation of Thrones. Whereas the e-book begins with Aegon I Targaryen’s conquest of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, Home of the Dragon is beginning off along with his great-great-grandson Viserys I. Which means Home of the Dragon will lead us very quickly into the famed civil conflict often called the Dance of the Dragons.
Condal serves as co-showrunner alongside Recreation of Thrones veteran Miguel Sapochnik who will direct the Home of the Dragon pilot and extra episodes. Greg Yaitanes (Home), Clare Kilner (The Alienist), and Geeta V. Patel (Meet the Patels) will even direct episodes.
