The official release date of House of Dragon has just been announced. Yes, on the very first day of this year ( 2021), the long-awaited first episode of House of Dragon will be aired. This is indeed good news for fans of fantasy dramas and especially fans of samurai action movies. We also know that most American viewers will watch this new series as it is most likely one of the many Japanese animation cartoons making their way to the big screen. What’s even better news is that English-speaking fans can now catch the premiere. I bet they will not be disappointed!
The story of House of Dragon begins in the distant past of Westeros. There are five dragons (Feanor, azo, Zeerakh, Quince, and Xion) who rule the mountain kingdom of Westeros. Their rule is unquestioned since they live in a magical realm called the Mountain Clans. The only thing that challenges the dragons is the fact that not all the other races can fly. The dragons are the only race that can both fly and breathe fire.
So when the race of men arrives in Westeros, they attack the dragons. But Xion and Quincey try to help the Men defeat the dragons and then try to stop the ensuing chaos. As the trailer shows, the dragons are defeated by the Men, but not before Xion sacrifices herself for the good of Westeros. After her death, Quincey dies trying to save Westeros while Matt Smith plays the part of a savior to begin the rebuilding of Westeros while avoiding future conflicts between the forces of good and evil. This is House of Dragon, and Matt Smith is the one playing the lead role.
In the House Of Dragon trailer, we get to see how Matt Smith copes with his role as the savior of Westeros and how he fits into the House of Targaryen. The trailer shows that the character of Jon is adapting well to his role as the Targaryen prince and even asks Jon about being crowned king. The character of Oberyn Martell tries to outdo his brother with the Iron Throne but ends up getting burned alive in the process.
Oberyn, now known as the Prince of wildfire, sends Matt Smith as the new Prince of Dorne, but not until after Jon has killed Dorne’s queen, Moiraine. Meanwhile, Moira and Jon have a bitter rivalry over the inheritance of their father, Lordaeron. Finally, in the House Of Dragon, Matt Smith voices some of his frustrations with the portrayal of House of Thrones. He states that he would like to play the role of Daenerys Targaryen and that he would like to have more of a hand in the plot of the show.
In the House of Dragon, Matt Smith voices Randyll, a noble lord who serves as Jon’s mentor and friend. However, Randyll’s loyalty is tested when he discovers that his father has served the wildling horde against his homeland for fear of chaos. He is also reunited with Selwyn, whom he quickly falls in love with. In the House of Dragon, Matt Smith’s role Randyll is to be a loyalist who wants to see good rule and peace for Westeros, but he isn’t sure that he can follow this vision alone.
According to HBO programming president Michael Lombardo, the writers for the prequels had an overall goal to establish the rules of the Middle East, which has been altered due to the events of the television series. This is why the HBO cast is so familiar with the works of George R.R. Martin, who wrote A Song Of Ice and Fire and the HBO TV series, while at the same time, Lombardo said the intention behind the House Of Dragons trailer was also to address the question of how different the world would be in the first seasons of Game of Thrones. The House Of Dragon, as the name suggests, is ruled by a dragon who rules the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. Because of this House of Dragons trailer, many fans have come to believe that Westeros may indeed end up following the events of the bestselling book series.
With the House Of Dragon as the major source of inspiration for the spin-offs, it makes sense that the upcoming HBO shows will feature dragons in some form or another. However, there is no telling just yet if any dragons will make their debut in the upcoming series. With the House of Dragon as the main source of inspiration for the spin-offs, it only seems natural that the legendary and powerful creatures will feature heavily throughout the upcoming series. Whether the dragons in the HBO series will remain medieval knights with gleaming steel, or if they will become more like the fierce beasts from the book and the George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, remains to be seen, but with the House Of Dragon as the main source of inspiration, it seems likely that it will at least be interesting to see how that story arc plays out.
