The Dragon House’s main difference from Game of Thrones

The highly anticipated House of the Dragon HBO series already has a big difference that sets it apart from the bugs in the Game of Thrones finale.

HBO is highly anticipated Game of Thrones prequel The dragon house already has a significant difference that can benefit the show in the long run. Game of Thrones ran for eight successful seasons from 2011 to 2019, but the end of last season attracted controversy and was largely ignored by fans as a successful end. The series was based on George RR Martins A song about ice and fire book series, but passed the timeline of books in recent seasons, leading to an unknown finale that was not governed by the exact vision of the books.

The upcoming series The dragon house depicts an era of Targaryen rule over the seven kingdoms under King Viserys Targaryen. A major source of conflict will be between Visery’s younger brother Daemon Targaryen, heir to the throne and Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, Visery’s daughter who is not heiress because she is a woman. The series will largely draw from George RR Martin’s novel Fire and blood, which is found outside A song about ice and fire series and describes the history of House Targaryen in Westeros 300 years before Daenerys Targaryen’s reign. Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss will not return to The dragon house, which may appeal to fans as D&D was heavily criticized for their performance last season.

The dragon house has a great advantage over Game of Thrones by going in with a solidified end; the audience is really just on the trip. While both have a basis in Martin’s novels, The dragon house‘s source material is an independent novel that tells the story of House Targaryen. In contrast, Game of Thrones was based on a series that was not finished being written. By the time Game of Thrones reached season 5, Martin still had two more books yet to be published, leading the showrunners to take their own course of action with the characters and their endings. The dragon houseon the other hand can be more successful than Game of Thrones‘last few seasons because it will have direct book-to-show customizable material with an ending that fans are already prepared for.

Game of Thrones‘great controversy came from its hasty and dislike of last season and storytelling, but by virtue of being a prequel, The dragon house is a step ahead because everyone (at least everyone interested in finding out) already knows how it ends, and thus can not be as great a source of controversy as its predecessor. The only way The dragon house could get in hot water for its finale is if it took a different direction that differs from Martin’s story in A song about ice and fire or Fire and blood. Considering The dragon house has been set hundreds of years before Game of Thrones, it’s unlikely to end with Robert’s Rebellion – that event occurs only 17 years before Game of Thrones‘first season begins – and could instead implement a newly crafted Westerosi tragedy in its era to end.

The first teaser for The dragon house shows some of the tension between Rhaenerys and Daemon Targaryen. Crucially, the trailer creates the Targaryens (and their dragons) as being central to the drama unfolding in Westeros, as well as all the power struggles and political unrest. And while some of the character dynamics may be similar to that of Game of Thrones, The dragon house will probably have a more decisive end because Targaryen’s reign lasts only that long. Martin’s book served as a bridge between Targaryen’s history and their present, and The dragon house will definitely do the same, which will calm the audience’s minds.

Although most prequels to successful series and franchises do not have high expectations to live up to the original, there are many expectations for The dragon house to be good. Many viewers see it as an opportunity for HBO to do away with the shared fan receptions of Game of Thrones season 8. Given that there were petitions to remake Game of Thrones‘last season because of how badly it was received, The dragon house can be the franchise’s way of correcting the audience.
