HOUSE OF THE DRAGON FIRST-LOOK PICTURES
The first-look posters of Hose of the Dragon were released on Wednesday (May 5). The photos feature Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen.

THE STORY OF HOUSE OF THE DRAGON
Set 300 years before Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon tells the tale of House Targaryen. The Targaryens fled to the Seven Kingdoms from the Doom of Valyria. They established their ancestral castle on Dragonstone just off the coast of Westeros. They stayed that way until Aegon Targaryen and his sisters brought the Seven Kingdoms to their knees with the help of their dragons.
House of the Dragon is based on author George RR Martin’s book Fire & Blood. Martin, who is behind this whole world through his fantasy book series A Song of Ice and Fire, is also one of the executive producers. Miguel Sapochnik, who helmed some of Game of Thrones’ landmark episodes, and Ryan Condal are showrunners. Ramin Djawadi, who composed the music for Game of Thrones, has returned to score House of the Dragon.
