news culture Game of Thrones: The spin-off House of the Dragon offers a trailer as dark as it is impressive
After conquering everyone from 2011 to 2019, the Game of Thrones series offers a brand new spin-off that focuses on House Targaryen. Moreover, this new series entitled House of the Dragon now offers a spectacular trailer.
The Fall of House Targaryen
Just like Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon is based on a series of books concocted by famed writer George RR Martin, but unlike the 2011 series, this spin-off dwells on the history of House Targaryen. Everything takes place two hundred years before the death of Robert Baratheon and the arrival of Daenerys, during the fall of the diaconic house which, however, reigned over all of Westeros.
This first season, made up of 10 episodes, invites us to evolve alongside Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen played by Emma D’Arcy (TruthSeekers). According to the actress, this heroine “pushes the limits of femininity”, but that’s not all. At the same time, we will discover the chilling character of Matt Smith (Last Night in Soho, Morbius), namely Daemon Targaryen, a golden-haired prince.
Daemon Targaryen is very interesting to explore, he is dark, completely deranged. I’m not disappointed to wear a blonde wig, ride a dragon and participate in a few sword fights. He also has a big dragon, red and very angry. It is perhaps even the most uncontrollable of all. I’m telling you frankly, he’s a real bastard! It’s a bit like a pet, it has its own personality and energy to spare. Matt Smith, via Sad Happy Confused
A release date and a solid cast
In addition to Emma D’Arcy and Matt Smith, House of the Dragon will also count on the presence of Paddy Considine (Hot Fuzz) who will play here the role of King Viserys, but also Rhys Ifans (The King’s Man: First Mission) and Olivia Cook (Ready Player One).
Finally, note that it won’t be long before you can contemplate the Game of Thrones spin-off series since House of the Dragon is expected on HBO Max from August 21, 2022. Suffice to say that it will happen quickly .
