HBO Max has revealed its latest Game of Thrones spin-off, House Of The Dragon – and it’s all part of its big launch into Europe, reports Shortlist.
According to the report, showcasing its streaming service, which has been available in the US for some time, HBO Max brought out the big guns and used a teaser of upcoming House of Dragons to prove that it has some stunning shows that will be available on the service in the near future.
The minute-long teaser notes that the show is set some 200 years before the ‘fall of the throne’ and that a dynasty reigned throughout this time. The dynasty is question is House Targaryen and the cast includes King Viserys I Targaryen (Paddy Considine), Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Olivia Cooke), Prince Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith), Lord Corlys Velaryon (Steve Toussaint) and many more faces we will learn about.
The voiceover promises “gods, kings, fire and blood” and shows off some intense duelling and myriad locations that look very much like Game of Thrones. And then there’s the kicker: “Dreams didn’t make us kings. Dragons did.”
