House of the Dragon trailer: the Game of Thrones spin-off promises fire, blood and dragons

The House of the Dragon trailer is here. On Thursday, HBO unveiled the first trailer for the Game of Thrones spin-off set two centuries before the events of Game of Thrones. Kicking off with King Viserys Targaryen – the fifth ruler of the Seven Kingdoms – House of the Dragon will lead directly into the great Targaryen civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons. There are signs of this conflict in the first House of the Dragon trailer, with Matt Smith’s Prince Daemon opposed to the idea of ​​Princess Rhaenyra being named Viserys’ heiress. There are also some dragons and dragon eggs. Alongside this, we also received a bunch of House of the Dragon character posters.

“What is this short mortal life but the continuation of the legacy?” Lord Corlys “Sea Snake” Velaryon (Steve Toussaint) says at the start of the House of the Dragon trailer. As a dragon flies over King’s Landing, the rulers of Westeros – Rickard Stark, Boremund Baratheon and Velaryon – pledge their loyalty to their new king, Viserys Targaryen (Paddy Considine), and his heiress named Princess Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy ). But it seems the Daemon Prince (Smith) disputes that, as one woman put it: “Men would rather put the kingdom to the torch than see a woman ascend the Iron Throne.

The second half of the House of the Dragon trailer opens with Otto Hightower (Rhys Ifans) – the hand of the king – admitting they’re playing an “ugly game” and telling his daughter Lady Alicent (Olivia Cooke) that she has the “determination to win it. Stern looks are exchanged, people are beaten and bloodshed, and finally, swords and daggers are drawn. Velaryon’s words close the House trailer of the Dragon, as he remarks, “History doesn’t remember blood. It remembers names.”

In addition to Toussaint, Considine, D’Arcy, Smith, Ifans and Cooke, House of the Dragon also stars Eve Best as Corlys’ wife, Princess Rhaenys Targaryen, Milly Alcock and Emily Carey as young Rhaenyra and Alicent, Fabien Frankel as skilled swordsman Ser Criston Cole, and Sonoya Mizuno as Daemon’s dancer and most trusted ally, Mysaria. Ryan J. Condal and Game of Thrones writer George RR Martin are the creators of this Thrones spin-off, with Condal serving as co-showrunner with director Miguel Sapochnik.

House of the Dragon begins August 21 on HBO and HBO Max wherever available, and August 22 on Disney+ Hotstar in India. All eight seasons of Game of Thrones are currently available on Disney+ Hotstar.
