Watch HBO’s teaser trailer for Game of Thrones spin-off House of the Dragon
HBO has released a teaser trailer containing the first real footage of House of the Dragon, its upcoming Game of Thrones prequel series. The show was announced two years ago and is based on George R. R. Martin’s Fire and Blood, a book that centers around the history of the Targaryen family and is set two centuries before the events of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, which Game of Thrones was based on.
The House of the Dragon trailer doesn’t reveal much about the show’s plot beats, but does demonstrate its impressive cast: actors including Paddy Considine, Matt Smith, Sonoya Mizuno, Steve Toussaint, Rhys Ifans, and Olivia Cooke are all on board. As you’d expect, there appears to be a lot of sword fighting and references to dragons.
