Game of Thrones in the Targaryen Kingdom: “House of the Dragon”

The wait is over, the dragons of the Targaryen Kingdom have reawakened.

“Game of Thrones”, one of the greatest works of HBO and perhaps of all time in the history of the series, said goodbye to the screens three years ago. Farewells are bittersweet in nature, but the finale of “Game of Thrones” remains a bit of surprise and a bit of disappointment in the memory of all fans. Let me not mention this unpleasant ending, which does not please the fans of the series, to avoid spoilers, but instead, I will add the last table reading of the set team because whenever I remember “Game of Thrones”, it comes to my mind. I think, the reactions of Kit Harington, one of the lead actors of the series, are interpreting our feelings about the finale.

Here we are meeting again with the fantastic universe of “Game of Thrones”, to which we said goodbye a few years ago. This time, the lead role is the Targaryen Kingdom, one of the nine great dynasties of Westeros (there were two Targaryens we know in “Game of Thrones”: Viserys and Daenerys). Focusing on 200 years before the events of the “Game of Thrones”, “House of the Dragon” is the guest of a turbulent period in which the Targaryen Kingdom lived. Also known as the Dance of the Dragons, this period coincides with the civil war between the members of House Targaryen. Series, George R.R. It’s an adaptation of Martin’s 2018 book, Fire and Blood, but not an entirely faithful adaptation.

“I think House of the Dragon has everything it needs to be in a successful sequel,” series writer Martin said in an interview with The New Yorker for the series, which premiered Sunday. In the same interview, Martin says that “House of the Dragon” is a fictional history narrative with dragons thrown into it, a kind of Shakespearean tragedy. The first comments from critics, as well as Martin’s analogy to Shakespeare’s tragedy, will increase the interest in the series.

The first comments are that it is a successful job, close to “Game of Thrones”. Most critics, who found the multi-dimensional political intrigues of “Game of Thrones” to be established through a single dynasty, think that the series is cleverly constructed. When it comes to a job full of dragons, the technical part of the job is also not to be wondered at. The effects used in “House of the Dragon”, each episode costing approximately 20 million dollars, are among the praised parts of the series.

Directed by Emmy Award-winning Miguel Sapochnik, the series stars Milly Alcock, Matt Smith, Graham McTavish, Paddy Considine and Rhys Ifans. As we started with “Game of Thrones”, we close the article with a quote from “Game of Thrones” and remember the following sentence of Tyrion Lannister (the prince of Lannister, one of the 9 great dynasties of the Westland): “My father, Tywin Lannister, was a bad man, and so was my sister. yes, but neither killed as many people as Daenerys Targaryen.” It seems that from the predecessor of the series, throne battles full of blood and death await us in “House of the Dragon” full of Targaryens and dragons.
