HBO aggressively guarded against plot spoilers for Game of Thrones. And it looks like their approach for prequel series House of the Dragon won’t be any different.
The platform has provided only loose details about what will happen in the series, which is set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones. What we do know? The show centers around House Targaryen, and draws from George R.R. Martin’s novella Fire & Blood.
Back in May, HBO released our first approved look at House of the Dragon. The images featured core cast members Emma D’Arcy, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, and Rhys Ifans in character. While the pictures gave us a glimpse into the costuming for the series, the generic beach backdrops didn’t offer much insight into the sets.
Well, that’s changing now (though not by HBO’s choice). A new image leaked online reveals a closer look at one of the House of the Dragon sets. Check it out in the original Tweet below.
The set photo shows what appears to be a Targaryen campsite, decked out in red drapery and featuring the house insignia on a flag. There are also several riders on horseback, although the picture is too far away to spot if any of the announced cast members appear.
In addition to D’Arcy, Smith, Cooke, and Ifans, HBO recently revealed several other cast members. New additions include Ryan Corr, Jefferson Hall, David Horovitch, Graham McTavish, Matthew Needham, Bill Paterson, and Gavin Spokes. You can find out more about each of their characters and role in House of the Dragon here.
So, what do you think of this first glimpse into the House of the Dragon set? Let us know in the comments below.
