House of the Dragon premieres on August 22nd at 8pm on Disney+ Hotstar in India.
House of the Dragon -an upcoming sequel to TV show Game of Thrones — now has a trailer that is official. HBO released the trailer in advance of the panel it will be hosting at San Diego Comic-Con, and confirmed that its forthcoming Westeros series will make use of various time-hopping techniques to convey the story. This House of the Dragon plot is based upon the writer George RR Martin’s novel ‘Fire and Blood novel, and takes place centuries prior to the events in “Fire and Ice.’ This Game of Thrones spin-off will premiere the 21st of August on HBO Max and on the 22nd of August at Disney+ Hotstar in India.
A succession crisis begins with the House of the Dragon trailer, featuring Daemon Targaryen ( Matt Smith) and Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy) fighting over who will be the occupant of the Iron Throne. Contrary to the mythology that is the basis of Game of Thrones The prequel places an entirely new set of Targaryens on the seat currently occupied by the King Viserys I (Paddy Constantine) -who is in desperate need of an successor.
In the House of the Dragon trailer, we are told we learn that Daemon was the King’s son and Rhaenyra is his son born to him. This is the beginning of the conflict in the storyas Daemon must choose between his brother, which is in violation of the law — or his bloodchild, which is the daughter of a woman.
“I won’t be forced to decide between my brother or my child,” says the king in a discussion with his council members in the House of the Dragon trailer. The medieval setting has the same plot beats in regards to succession, and women are automatically deemed ineligible to run the kingdom. “A woman cannot be able to inherit the Iron Throne, because that is how things work,” Rhaenyra is told in the first House of the Dragon trailer scene. This further boosts her confidence to be able to compete with her father Daemon.
The House of the Dragon trailer also reveals a third contender who will be a contender for Iron Throne. Lady Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke) was Rhaenyra’s most trusted friend prior to her split because of her the desire to be a successful. Interviews with House of the Dragon showrunners Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik said that both characters will be introduced as teens and then there would be a jump of 10 years. From now on, D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke will assume the role of Olivia Cooke and D’Arcy. In terms of structure, it’s expected that the brand new Game of Thrones show will be like The Crown, which is on Netflix. The Crown and will include numerous time jumps scattered throughout.
In the meantime, George RR Martin hopes to transform Game of Thrones into a world that is similar that of The Marvel Cinematic Universe and has a variety of other projects. The Jon Snow spin-off is in the early stages of production at HBO as well. It is slated to air as an extension of the series that ran for eight seasons. “The MCU has The Avengers, however, there’s also something different similar to WandaVision,” Martin stated to The Hollywood Reporter. “That’s the kind of thing I’d like to see could do with the additional Game of Thrones shows, so that we have an array of shows that show the rich history of the world. There’s only a certain number of occasions you can participate in an event to win an Iron Throne.”
In the meantime, House of the Dragon debuts in the US on HBO Max in the US as well as in other countries and the 22nd of august in India on Disney+ Hotstar in India.
