Game of Thrones spin-off, House of the Dragon is based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood. House of the Dragonis focused on the House of Targaryen and is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
HBO will present a panel for its upcoming series House of the Dragon at San Diego Comic-Con’s coveted Hall H.
House of the Dragon is ten episodic series that debuts on August 21 on HBO and HBO Max. The series is created by Martin alongside Ryan Condal.
House of the Dragon will follow Rhaenyra Targaryen as she vies for the Iron Throne against her stepmother, Alicent Hightower, and her younger half-brother, Aegon II Targaryen. While Daenerys’s dragons were her greatest asset in Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon has them on both sides, meaning they will be used to attack as many Targaryens as they protect.
About the series, George Martin wrote on his blog, “I continue to be impressed. I cannot speak to the SFX, many of which are not in yet, but the look of it is great, and the acting, the directing, and the writing are first-rate.
Further, he added And yes, for all you book fans, it IS my story. Sure, there are some changes from ‘Fire & Blood’ we could not present three alternative versions of every major event, not and keep our sanity but I think Ryan Condal and his writers made good choices. Even some improvements.
