The prequel will focus on the House Targaryen and the seemingly chaotic relationships between members of the clan, which leads to the devastating civil war that would be known as the Dance of the Dragons. Set three centuries back, the prequel is based on George R.R. Martin’s novel, Fire & Blood. House of the Dragon will chronicle an older version of Westeros.

The official trailer has been recently released, and viewers have seen how large the scale of this new series is. House of the Dragon has a budget of $20 million per episode, and this only leaves the fans wondering how impressive the viewing experience will be once the prequel premieres this August 21.

One of the most awaited scenes from the upcoming series is the dragons. Game of Thrones used CGI to design these creatures; this time, they will be more practical and make sure that these beastly creatures look more authentic. Most of the elements are built from scratch, hence the dedication of the entire production crew.

Fans will have to wait and see until House of the Dragon arrives on HBO Max. Many will indeed find curiosity as to how the prequel will compare to the original series with its new plot and characters. Somehow going back to Westeros will give the fans a familiar feeling.
