“House of the Dragon” Gets Official HBO Max Teaser

Game of Thrones” prequel series about the Targaryens “House of the Dragon” got it’s first teaser today! Shared by HBO Max this morning, this first look at the upcoming series is chalked-full of easter eggs for fans.

Focusing on the infamous family of Targaryens, the series takes place roughly 300 years before the action of author George R. R. Martin‘s first novel from the “Song of Ice and Fire” saga, aka “Game of Thrones.”

Artify – Square

Emma D’Arcy will play Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, the king’s first-born, pure Valyrian-blooded child who is a dragonrider. Aegon II is her half-brother.

Matt Smith will play Prince Daemon Targaryen, King Viserys’ younger brother and heir to the throne. Described as a “peerless warrior and a dragonrider, Daemon possesses the true blood of the dragon. But it is said that whenever a Targaryen is born, the gods toss a coin in the air…”

Sonoya Mizuno as Mysaria. She came to Westeros with nothing, sold more times than she can recall, and could have wilted…but instead she rose to become the most trusted — and most unlikely — ally of Prince Daemon Targaryen, the heir to the throne.

Eve Best as Princess Rhaenys Velaryon. A dragonrider and wife to Lord Corlys Velaryon, “The Queen Who Never Was” was passed over as heir to the throne at the Great Council because the realm favored her cousin, Viserys, simply for being male.

Martin and Ryan Condal (Colony, Hercules) will serve as co-creators on the series. Miguel Sapochnik and Condal will be showrunners, and the pair will also serve as executive producers along with Martin, Vince GerardisSara Lee Hess, and Ron Schmidt.

And, most excitingly, “Game of Thrones” and “Westworld” composer Ramin Djawadi will score “House of the Dragon.”
