Home of the Dragon trailer has arrived — out of the blue. On Tuesday, HBO Max unveiled the primary teaser trailer for its first Recreation of Thrones prequel spin-off collection Home of the Dragon, as a part of its launch date announcement into Europe. (HBO Max arrives October 26 in Europe.) The primary Home of the Dragon trailer units up the collection’ setting — 200 years earlier than the autumn of the Iron Throne — when the Targaryens took over Westeros with the assistance of dragons. The one-minute Home of the Dragon teaser would not inform us a lot, however it does construct the temper of the collection.
“Gods. Kings. Hearth. And blood,” an unseen speaker says within the Home of the Dragon teaser trailer, whereas we’re proven glimpses of the first characters: the Hand of the King pin on Otto Hightower (Rhys Ifans), Kign Viserys I (Paddy Considine) holding the sword and sitting on a throne, and his children Prince Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith) and Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy) on a seashore. There is a transient glimpse of a Targaryen in fight, a tourney, and Otto’s daughter Alicent (Olivia Cooke).
“Desires did not make us kings. Dragons did,” the speaker returns as we see a Targaryen girl whose face we will not see strode in direction of a a lot completely different Iron Throne than the one we bear in mind from Recreation of Thrones. This one is rawer, extra pointy, and there are swords welded into the bottom throughout it. That is mighty harmful, I need to say, particularly for any rulers predisposed to a drink. The primary Home of the Dragon trailer then wraps with a title card and reiterating its 2022 launch window.
Created by George R.R. Martin and Ryan Condal and primarily based on Martin’s Hearth & Blood ebook, Home of the Dragon is about 200 years previous to the occasions of Recreation of Thrones. Whereas the ebook begins with Aegon I Targaryen’s conquest of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, Home of the Dragon is beginning off together with his great-great-grandson Viserys I. Meaning Home of the Dragon will lead us very quickly into the famed civil struggle generally known as the Dance of the Dragons.
