Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is one of the most highly anticipated shows of 2022. With the series currently in post-production, we can now expect the official full trailer to drop anytime soon, especially since the premiere date is right around the corner. House of The Dragon will be here in August, and according to series director Greg Yaitanes, the show will be having slightly different priorities than Game of Thrones, which is a good sign for all the fans awaiting the prequel.

Appearing in a recent episode of The Golden Hour Podcast, Yaitanes goes on to describe how the show is in good hands and what their priorities are. He says, “I’m excited for the world to see it.” He tells co-showrunner Miguel Sapochnik is handing “the physical production and the visual side of this thing.” Meanwhile, co-showrunner Ryan Condal is “the keeper of the story and the lore and everything Game of Thrones…The storytelling side is where they intermesh. So there’s a great dance between them and it was great watching their collaboration evolve over the course of the season.”

Yaitanes continues, “The priority list from Miguel, it was always ‘character, story, and visuals will follow’…The show has enormous scope to it…there’s just so much happening in every single frame. The character and story is where I always come from, and the visuals chase that, because I feel like they need to be in support of what the scene is doing.”

Hopefully, this will eradicate the ‘forgotten storylines’ and ‘rushed ending’ issues fans had with Game of Thrones. What do you think? Talk to us in the comments below!
