George R.R. Martin, the creator of HBO’s Game of Thrones, has viewed a preliminary cut of House of the Dragon, and he claims fans will be thrilled. When asked about the Game of Thrones spinoff, author George R.R. Martin responded that he was pleased with how it has thus far turned out. House of the Dragon will draw inspiration from George R.R. Martin’s novel, Fire & Blood.
In the Season One finale of Game of Thrones, Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion were born, with dragons having been extinct for nearly 150 years.
The program will premiere on HBO Max in 2022. Martin was delighted to be included in a “most-anticipated” list with The Sandman and Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings, as well as the opportunity to see others’ enthusiasm for the series.
Here’s his post:
“The new year is almost at hand, and with it will come all manner of new television shows, on network, cable, and streamers.
I have got to confess, I was chuffed to read that the most anticipated new show, according to IMDB, was…
(drum roll, please)
HOUSE OF THE DRAGON!
That’s a hell of a list to be at the top of, too. Amazon’s new Tolkien series? Neil Gaiman’s SANDMAN? Marvel shows? STAR WARS shows?
I am anticipating HOUSE OF THE DRAGON pretty eagerly myself, for what it’s worth. Okay, I am hardly objective. And I know a lot of what you will be seeing. (I, um, wrote the book). Also … mum’s the word now, don’t tell anyone… I’ve seen a rough cut of the first episode. And loved it. It’s dark, it’s powerful, it’s visceral… just the way I like my epic fantasy.
Ryan and Miguel have done an amazing job, and the cast… just as with GAME OF THRONES, most viewers will only have heard of a few of the actors, but I think you are going to fall in love with a lot of them. (Only to have your heart broken later when… but no, that would be telling).
I think the Targaryens are in very good hands.
Anticipate away. I do not think you will be disappointed.”
About House of the Dragon
House of the Dragon is “a triumph” according to George RR Martin, the author of the Game of Thrones book series on which the show is based. The new show will premiere on HBO and tells the story of the Targaryen dynasty, who ruled Westeros for centuries before being overthrown by Robert Baratheon. The show has been praised for its dark and gothic visuals, as well as its epic scale.
