The success of Game of Thrones tempted the execs at HBO to venture forth into the mystical realm of George R. R. Martin’s novels, as a result, we have House of The Dragon, the first prequel, to be released very soon. HBO has also been playing around with several ideas that are set in the world of Westeros, and a few of them weren’t lucky enough to make it to the silver screen. House of The Dragon’s showrunner Ryan J. Condal recently explained what made the prequel so special.

Condal told Entertainment Weekly, “This particular time period was the story that George thought was the thing that had the most direct, if not indirect linkage tonally to that first episode of Game of Thrones.”

He continued, “I wanted to tell a story about the height of Rome before the fall and see the Targaryen dynasty at its very apex so that we can understand the thing that was lost when it all fell apart.”

Both the showrunners, Condal and Miguel Sapochnik, further go on to describe Emma D’Arcy’s Rhaenyra Targaryen as the most important role in the show. Sapochnik says, “I’m so excited about them being the face of the show.”
