We finally have a release date for house of the dragon which is a prequel to the game of thrones
The company announced the date Wednesday with a picture of what appears to be a hatching dragon egg
House of the Dragon is based on George R.R. Martin’s 2019 book Fire and Blood and is focused on, as the name suggests, House Targaryen.
Besides the poster, House of Dragon also released new stills of the Targaryens that will be seen on the show.
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Matt Smith revealed that the show is set a few hundred years before the Game of Thrones timeline.
House of Dragon was announced in October 2019, a few months after Game of Thrones came to an end.
House of the Dragon’s August 21st release date means it will be pitted against Amazon’s upcoming The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Prime Video series
The series stars Paddy Considine as King Viserys Targaryen, Jaehaerys Targaryen, and Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen
