House of the Dragon’s epic intro has leaked, and it’s just as good as the Game of Thrones one




House of the Dragon premiered last week, ending a long, long wait. However, when it dropped, the show’s pilot episode was missing a crucial bit — the intro! The cold open was rather nice for establishing the tone of the show. However, it still made us miss the Game of Thrones intro. The intro was then said to arrive with the second episode, but instead has now leaked ahead of time, and it’s just as good as the Game of Thrones intro!

The intro video began doing the rounds on social media today. It’s not the highest-quality video, but it seems to be from the French version of the show.

House of the Dragon retains the Game of Thrones intro music

Official Opening Credits: House of The Dragon (HBO)

The intro to House of the Dragon seems to follow the Game of Thrones formula. A similar setup, except a lot bloodier. It also keeps the theme music from Game of Thrones as-is. HBO probably went with this move to retain familiarity with Thrones. The tune is still as catchy, but House of the Dragon could’ve used a fresh theme. The fans would likely respond positively to that, as well.

The intro represents the Targaryen theme itself quite well. Fans seem to be divided on the intro so far, with some praising the bone-chilling update to the Thrones intro, while others disappointed that there’s no brand new music to go along with the visuals. While there’s no confirmation on the legitimacy of this leak, the intro sure does look official. We would be surprised if we’re greeted with a different intro when the second episode drops tomorrow.

While we wait for that, what do you think about the House of the Dragon intro? Would you have liked to see a new style or music for these opening credits? Let us know in the comments, down below!
