HOUSE OF THE DRAGON Trailer And Character Posters Ignite The Targaryen Civil War

HBO has released the first full trailer for House of the Dragon, highlighting some blistering new footage from the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel series. We also have a batch of character banners.

HBO (via SFF Gazette) has finally debuted a full trailer for its upcoming Game of Thrones prequel series, House of the Dragon, and it gives us a much better idea of what to expect from the show as the seeds of civil war are planted among the most powerful family in Westeros.

The footage spotlights most of the main players, as well as one of the many (presumably) fire-breathing beasts the Targaryens will ride into battle.

Set almost 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon will focus on the conflict that erupts in the Targaryen household when the king names his daughter as heir to the Iron Throne ahead of his son.

Check out the trailer below, along with a full batch of character posters. House of the Dragon is set to premiere on August 21.

"The prequel series finds the Targaryen dynasty at the absolute apex of its power, with more than 15 dragons under their yoke. Most empires—real and imagined—crumble from such heights. In the case of the Targaryens, their slow fall begins almost 193 years before the events of Game of Thrones, when King Viserys Targaryen breaks with a century of tradition by naming his daughter Rhaenyra heir to the Iron Throne. But when Viserys later fathers a son, the court is shocked when Rhaenyra retains her status as his heir, and seeds of division sow friction across the realm."

House of the Dragon stars Paddy Considine (Peaky Blinders) as King Viserys Targaryen, Olivia Cooke (Ready Player One) as Alicent Hightower, Emma D’Arcy (Wanderlust) as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Matt Smith (Doctor Who) as Prince Daemon Targaryen.
