“Gods. Kings. Fire. Blood”. The recipe is always the same in Westeros!
200 years before Robert Baratheon’s rebellion and the fall of the Iron Throne, a dynasty ruled Westeros! That of the Targaryens. And House of the dragon will tell their story, or how they imposed their domination on the 7 Kingdoms, after the fall of their city of origin: Valyria, on the Continent of Essos. The first trailer posted this Tuesday by HBO Max already highlights: “Dreams haven’t made us kings. It’s the dragons!” Yes, the dragons will be at the center of the spin-off of Game Of Thrones !
Filmed in England now, House of the dragon will be released in 2022 on the HBO Max streaming platform in the United States (we do not know who will broadcast it in France yet) on an exact date that the video does not reveal.
