Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon will be covering the events from the time when Targaryens were flourishing in Westeros, and so were their dragons, about 200 years prior to the timeline of the original show. In an earlier discussion with House of The Dragon showrunner Ryan J. Condal and David Mendel on their podcast, The Stuff Dreams are Made of, Game of Thrones creator George R. R. Martin confirmed the existence of 17 dragons on the show, far more than what we had on Game of Thrones.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, co-showrunner Miguel Sapochnik revealed another intriguing detail that has been added to the dragons in the prequel series. He said, “I came up with the idea that there were three types of dragons.”

“There’s the dragons that are dinosaur-like; they have a big bridge on their nose. There are the dragons that are canine, which usually have the convex feel to them; they feel wolf-like. And then, there’s the dragons that are like horses, which are somewhere in between. So, I’ve got a wolf skull, a horse skull, and a T-Rex skull, and designed the same dragon on top of them to see how the skull changed the features of the dragon.”

It’s one of the most satisfying processes because there was no limit placed on how we did it.”
