House of the Dragon: new fire and blood trailer

Game of Thrones returned. Almost. Three years after the end of The Phenomenon, its spin-off, Dragon House, arrives in August to take us back to the time when the Targaryen family ruled Westeros. And the atmosphere promises to be as bloody as in the best of times, as we can see in the new trailer. After all, maybe she wasn’t so bad, Daenerys…

“History does not remember blood. She remembers names.”

It was for such small proposals that we loved Game of Thrones. But also for its epic conflicts, tortured characters (sometimes literally), its many betrayal-based twists, and the presence of fantastical creatures, particularly dragons. Good news: it’s all a trailer for Dragon House, which presents the problems of the new series, which will be discovered from August 22 exclusively on OCS. And in terms of atmosphere, we immediately find what made the success of the saga invented by George R.R. Martin …

Roughly 170 years before the adventures of Jon Snow, Sansa Stark, Tyrion Lannister and all the characters we loved or hated (or loved to hate) in Game of Thrones, the Targaryen family, the Daenerys family, reigned supreme over Westeros. At the same time, they flew on the backs of dragons, which causes a little more respect than a hamster on the shoulder. But they had another feature that this time brought them closer to hamsters: they married and bred between siblings. What we found in Game of Thronesespecially in the first season, when Daenerys and her brother Viserys reminisce about family customs, have also been the focus of George R. R. Martin’s new book, Fire and bloodlooking back on the history of the Targaryen family. And it was this story that HBO wanted to build on when creating the series. Dragon House, which will thus allow us to return to King’s Landing, Dragonstone and other places that have become iconic. Following the recent reveal of the release date for this highly anticipated spin-off, a new trailer has arrived, announcing the color. And it’s red. Like the emblem of the Targaryens, but also fire and blood, of course…

From Game of Thrones to House of the Dragon.

The atmosphere is dark, very dark. And not just for the sake of image. In less than a minute and thirty seconds, a new trailer for Dragon House therefore presents us with a history of succession, which is doomed to a bad turn. We recognize such items as the famous Valyrian steel dagger, with which Arya Stark will pierce the stomach of the Night King in 170 years (this is not a spoiler in three years), the famous Iron Throne, in which there are even more swords than in Game of Thronesbut also the characters. And in these images, he looks like Damon Targaryen, played by Matt Smith (Crown, Doctor Who) will find itself right at the center of the story, with ambition that seems even more all-consuming than a dragon that hasn’t eaten in three weeks. In a word, all the components of the success of the saga are evident, and the expectation immediately becomes even more unbearable:

“A man would rather betray a kingdom to fire and sword than leave the Iron Throne to a woman.”

This is another standout line from the trailer, perhaps most foreshadowing the chaos that is to come in the series. We won’t tell you too much to avoid spoilers, but since the script is based on a unique book by George R.R. Martin, we already know a lot, and in particular that it will revolve around a conflict called “The Dance of the Dragons”. , in which two clans of the Targaryen family will confront. When we told you that they like to do things together…
