Will House of The Dragon be better than Game of Thrones? Here’s what the fans have to say




Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is fast on track for its release in 2022. The production hit a little snag recently after a positive COVID-19 case was detected, but since then it has been back to normal. Fans are highly excited about the upcoming series but they do have concerns if it will be as good as the original series, especially after the controversial final season.

Game of Laughs page on Facebook asked Game of Thrones fans via a post if the upcoming prequel will be better than the original series. The responses varied from great excitement to genuine concerns about the show’s success, and also some quips about HBO’s ability to make a great show. We selected a few of the comments from the post, to give you an idea of what the fan community thinks about the prequel series.

Here’s what the fans have to say about House of The Dragon:

Enrique Vaca“It will be great in terms of story depth and also of fights between dragons. I’m certainly optimistic that this show will be more loyal to the book. Also, I’m definitely hoping that Balerion the Black Dread has the most majestic scenes ever.”

Marques Johnson“Currently reading the book Fire and Blood which this show is gonna be based on. So if it lives up to the book hype it’s gonna be a great show!”

Dianca Rock“It depends on how much GRRM is involved. They better pay him his worth and keep him on as a screenplay writer. That’s all I have to say.”

Nick Quillen“It’s hard to say GOT was amazing and GRRM has published a lot of Targaryen lore so I’m just excited to see what the new show brings.”

Bernd Ki“Sure, because it’s already written to the end so they can’t make a horrible fantasy-diarrhea ending like S8!”

Gerardo Larenas Gyaldhart Larenahtz“Considering the statements made by Olivia Cooke, where she says that this new show won’t depict “violence against women” (when violence against EVERYONE has always been part of this saga), they seem to be taking a PC route and it will hardly be on the same league as GoT.”

Hovo Asatryan“It has the potential, but will people’s hearts accept and love it as they did with GoT….. GoT was a phenomenon and it is hard to repeat such success….”

Matei Bobes“Probably since they aren’t restricted to follow the book’s storyline… I hope the new characters will be at least as good.”

Eileen Dailey Hicks on Wiki of Thrones Facebook page said –“Read the book 3 times. Very hard to comprehend. Have to use charts. The prequel will have LOTS of dragons like 10. There will be Targaryens flying into battle on their dragons battles where dragons battle each other. Not sure how HBO will handle all the incest as like 5 reigns have brother married to sister. Wondering how the average fan will handle the show without reading the book. HBO will have to simplify it. It’ll be great!”

The Iron Throne has become a pop culture icon and a symbol of power in the fictional world. It represents an absolute reign, that corrupted many who tried to claim it for themselves. However, there have been many depictions of the Iron Throne, as various artists imagine them in their own ways. Surprisingly, the Iron Throne we saw on HBO’s TV adaptation of Game of Thrones wasn’t George R. R. Martin’s favourite design. In fact, he sites Marc Simonetti’s illustration of the Iron Throne in The World of Ice and Fire as his favourite.

Martin brought this up way back in 2013 writing about the Iron Throne in the Live Journal. He does say the HBO Iron Throne is THE Iron Throne, and always will be. But he went on to talk about the most accurate depiction of the Iron Throne. He chose the Iron Throne as painted by the amazing Marc Simonetti for his 2013 Ice & Fire calendar. And we can see why he chose it.

This Iron Throne is massive. Ugly. Assymetric,” Martin wrote. “It’s a throne made by blacksmiths hammering together half-melted, broken, twisted swords, wrenched from the hands of dead men or yielded up by defeated foes… a symbol of conquest… it has the steps I describe, and the height. From on top, the king dominates the throne room. And there are thousands of swords in it, not just a few.”

There’s hardly any doubt that some props from Game of Thrones have turned into pop culture icons. The one that stands out amongst them is the iconic Iron Throne. The Iron Throne fuels the desires of the characters, to one day become the ruler of the realm by claiming their chance to sit on the wicked throne. There is a reason why Daenerys’ last surviving dragon Drogon destroys it at the end of season 8. The long history of the Iron Throne in the Game of Thrones lore is very fascinating. However, the prop that we saw on HBO’s TV adaptation wasn’t the first attempt to bring the Iron Throne into existence. The first ever official Iron Throne was made way back in 1996.

George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones came out in 1996. The very first Iron Throne was modelled after the illustration on the cover by Bantam Publications. It is quite different from what we have seen on the TV adaptation. The publisher created this version of the Iron Throne months before the book had even come out as the centrepiece of their booth at the 1996 American Booksellers’ Association (ABA) show in Chicago. And Martin was the guest of honor.

The thing was really uncomfortable,” Martin commented back then. “That part they got just right.”
