HBO’s new Game of Thrones prequel series
Game of Thrones left a community of fans around the world (despite the criticism of its last season). And it is that there were many and many who fell in love with a series of such good quality: from the cast of actors, the special effects, the plots and the image, everything in Game of Thrones pointed to a successful series.
Like any series, Game of Thrones ended after 8 seasons that began airing in 2011. However, after almost two years since the last episode of the series aired, Game of Thrones returns in prequel form.
Obviously, it will not be the same, it will be different stories. However, thanks to these prequels we will have the opportunity to re-immerse ourselves in that universe of castles and dragons that we fell in love with.
HBO has been able to take advantage of the success of Game of Thrones without a doubt. It is appreciated that his intention is to squeeze it to the maximum, something against which we have nothing to object (obviously we can criticize when we see the new series).
At the moment, two Game of Thrones prequels have been confirmed: House of the Dragon (the house of the dragon, in Spanish) and The Tales of Dunk & Egg.
First prequel to Game of Thrones: House of the dragon
House of the dragon or, the house of the dragon, will be focused exclusively on the Targaryen family. The good news regarding this highly anticipated prequel is that HBO Max has confirmed that it will premiere in 2022.
So yeah, there’s still at least a year to go, but at least the news is official.
We’ve already said that it will focus on the Targaryen family, but what will the plot be based on? The story will tell us about the conflict between two members of the Targaryen family: Hightower and Aegon II and Rhaenrya Targaryen.
Part of the actors and actresses who will appear in the series has also been confirmed. For example, Daemon Targaryen will be brought to life by Matt Smith and Olivia Cook will play Alicent Hightower.
Second prequel to Game of Thrones: The Tales of Dunk & Egg
This prequel will be an adaptation of George RR Martin’s novel of the same name. It is a trilogy of novels shorter than the previous ones that finished being published in 2010.
The story will take us back to the Game of Thrones universe, but this time it will be 90 years earlier. We will meet Ser Duncan, a knight who is out of the ordinary and King Aegon V.
These novels have a more humorous and fun tone than A Song of Ice and Fire, so we’re still not convinced if this will work as well as the above or not.
At the moment, HBO has not given many details about this prequel as it is still in a very early stage of development.
Where can I see the Game of Thrones prequels?
The two Game of Thrones prequels can be seen on the HBO Max platform. At the moment, the platform is not available in Spain, but it is expected to be by the middle of this year.
That means that when the new Game of Thrones series land on the platform, it will already be available in Spain.
