It’s a big news week for Dragon House. HBO Game of Thrones the prequel has released its official trailer (below), the show will debut at Comic-Con on Saturday, and Hollywood Reporter published his deep dive The Dragon cover story. The story went backstage to reveal how HBO turned from its biggest hit to find its first follow-up show, then went to the set of the British series to hear from cast, showrunners and creator George R.R. Martin.

Here are some of the most talked about stories from the story of the series, which takes place 150 years before the events of Thrones.

  • The Dragon has a unique structure that is more like that of Netflix. Crown how Game of Thrones: There are several multi-year time jumps in the season (including a big 10-year jump around the middle of the season) and cast changes (female roles change from Emily Carey and Millie Alcock to Olivia Cooke and Emma D’Arcy). “Here’s the right way to tell this story,” says showrunner Ryan Kondal. “We tell the story of a generational war. We set everything up so that by the time the first blow of the sword you understand all the players.
  • The new series is suitable for childbirth, which Game of Thrones made for weddings. “In the Middle Ages, childbirth was violent,” says showrunner Miguel Sapochnik. “This is about as dangerous as it gets. You have a 50/50 chance of doing it. We have a few births in the show and basically we decided to give them different themes and explore them from different angles just like I did for a lot of the battles on Thrones“. The Dragon “pulls” the amount of sex away from Game of Thrones but still portray the sexual violence inherent in his medieval fantasy world: “thoroughly, thoughtfully and [we] don’t shy away from it,” says Sapochnik. “Anyway, we are going to shed some light on this aspect. It should not be underestimated or praised.”
  • Mysterious, rejected by HBO blood moon The pilot by writer Jane Goldman, starring Naomi Watts, has been described as “mature, sophisticated, and intelligent, and centered around a thematic conversation about disenfranchisement in the face of colonialism and religious extremism.” But even Martin’s most insiders never got to see the result. “It wasn’t ugly or terrible or anything like that,” one executive said. “It was very well produced and looked extraordinary. But it didn’t take me to the same place as the original series.”

  • New series sought to ‘change the conversation’ about diversity and peace Game of Thrones, portraying Steve Toussaint as a white character from the books: the powerful Lord Corlys Velarion, also known as the Sea Serpent, is the wealthiest character in Westeros. “I loved Game of Thrones, but my only caveat was: “Where is everyone else in this world?” Toussaint says. “Because it’s a varied world that Martin created, if you look [beyond Westeros] and I think this show is closer to that.”
  • Martin reacts with great enthusiasm to watching the first nine episodes: “It’s powerful, it’s visceral, it’s dark, it’s like a Shakespearean tragedy,” he says. “There is no Arya, a character that everyone will love. They are all defective. They are all people. They do good things. They do bad things. They are driven by a thirst for power, jealousy, old wounds – just like people. Just like I wrote them.”
  • HBO management dismissed the idea that the backlash against the finale Thrones season will affect the number of viewers The Dragon. “This was social media backlash,” said Casey Bloys, head of content for HBO and HBO Max. “I think in many parts of our society we are reminding ourselves that Twitter is not real life. We knew this would cause controversy and of course you want all the fans to be happy, but that will never happen. There weren’t many people around that were depressed or upset. This take reads well, but probably doesn’t fully capture the viewer’s feelings.” If ratings are strong enough, HBO is poised to quickly relaunch the series after it premieres on August 21.
  • As yet nothing is set in stone The DragonA civil war storyline can only span three or four seasons. But that may not mean the end of the show. The Dragon Theoretically, one could jump decades forward in time or backward to chronicle other events of the Targaryen dynasty (such as Aegon’s Conquest) with an entirely new cast. “The Targaryens cover both directions.” “So, as a basis for other possible stories and spin-offs… this is a great place to start.”
