What we need to see in HBO’s Game of Thrones prequel in regards to the Targaryens
It’s been a busy day for HBO. On the one hand, the premium cabler outright canceled its Game of Thrones prequel set throughout the Age of Heroes, tentatively referred to as Bloodmoon. On the opposite, it’s ordered straight to sequence a prequel all about House Targaryen, primarily based on George R.R. Martin Fire & Blood. The title? House of the Dragon.
As HBO says, House of the Dragon is co-created by A Song of Ice and Fire writer George R.R. Martin and Colony author/producer Ryan Condal. Miguel Sapochnik — the director behind glorious Game of Thrones episodes like “Hardhome,” “Battle of the Bastards” and “The Winds of Winter” — will function co-showrunner and direct the pilot in addition to different episodes. Condal will write. It’s unclear what the writers room will appear like at this level.
House of the Dragon is the proper identify for a prequel sequence about House Targaryen. From Aegon Targaryen and his sister-wives conquering the Seven Kingdoms astride their huge dragons to the Targaryen civil warfare often called the Dance of the Dragons, there are a ton of nice tales HBO may inform.
Might we see Aegon the Conqueror melting Harenhal like a wax candle, or Maegor the Cruel combating towards the Faith Militant, or maybe the reign of King Jaehaerys and Queen Alysanne, possibly even the fascinating story of Elissa Farman, who sailed farther west than anybody in historical past? Fire & Blood is packed to the gills with fascinating characters, and we are able to’t wait to see which of them take heart stage.
As for now, there isn’t any begin date for manufacturing on the present, however with a title and full sequence order from HBO — that means they’re going to make a season of this proper off the bat, somewhat than make a pilot and see the way it goes — anticipate issues to start out transferring somewhat shortly.
