Ahead of San Diego Comic-Con, HBO has released the official trailer for House of the Dragon, their upcoming Game of Thrones prequel set during one of Westeros’s greatest civil wars, featuring the talents of Matt Smith and Olivia Cooke.
In addition to Smith and Cooke, the cast also includes Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Emily Carey, and Sonoya Mizuno. Ryan J. Condal and Miguel Sapochnik lead the series as showrunners, with composer Ramin Djawadi returning to Westeros to compose the score for House of the Dragon.
The ten-episode series is based on George R. R. Martin‘s novel Fire and Blood, which was published in 2018.
House of the Dragon drops on HBO Max on August 21. (In the meantime, you can check out the posters here.)
