‘House of the Dragon’ is now filming in England, led by showrunner/executive producer Ryan J. Condal and director/executive producer Migel Sapochnik
HBO Max content chief Casey Bloys likes what he’s seen of the dailies so far. “It looks spectacular,” he said. “The cast that Migel and Ryan have put together looks good.”
‘House of the Dragon’ is based on George RR Martin’s novel “Fire & Blood,” a companion to the “Song of Ice and Fire” novels that were the basis for ‘Game of Thrones.’ The prequel will follow the Dance of the Dragons, the Targaryen civil war between siblings Aegon II and Rhaenyra, who fought for the throne after the death of their father Viserys I.
The Dance of the Dragons pits Westeros’ great houses — including the Lannisters and Starks — against each other and resulted in the death of House Targaryen’s most powerful dragons. Soon after the war, they would go extinct until Daenerys Targaryen would give birth to three dragons three centuries later.
