In March 2017, HBO ordered five prequel pitches. Three of the pitches advanced to scripts. The fourth and fifth were shelved for the time being. HBO has not yet decided whether to make a game of thrones prequel or not. However, Borenstein continues to hope that the new HBO leadership will reconsider his proposal.
Many fans of the Game of Thrones television series were excited to see a prequel of this popular show. However, many were disappointed when the series ended without the expected ending. As a result, HBO’s Game of Thrones prequel is likely to fall short of the show’s standards. As of this writing, no other series has been able to match the attention to detail that Thrones is famous for. However, a couple of recent adaptations have attempted to emulate the success of Thrones.
Game of Thrones is set at the time when dragons were a common fixture of the Targaryens. The show’s plot revolves around the fall of House Targaryen. It covers the period when the Targaryens’ empire began to crumble. While the storyline of the show is intriguing, it might not be necessary to dramatize this time period. Fans of the series can easily check out the source material, fan Wikis, and character relationships to find out what happened in the past.
The first Game of Thrones prequel is based on the novel Fire and Blood by George R.R. Martin. It follows the story of King Aegon III and his sons, the Conquest of Dorne, and the rise and fall of the House of the Seven. The novel takes its inspiration from historical events.
HBO has also announced a prequel, titled House of the Dragon. The novellas for the series are extensive, and the prequel is based on the civil war of the Targaryens, which occurred 200 years before the beginning of Game of Thrones. Although HBO did not schedule a pilot episode, the prequel has been approved by George R.R. Martin.
House of the Dragon will be released on August 21. The series is set two hundred years before the events in Game of Thrones. The second volume will also be released. However, the main “A Song of Ice and Fire” series must come first before the prequel is ready for release. If the prequel proves to be successful, HBO will surely release more episodes.
In the third installment, we will be introduced to some of the main characters from the Game of Thrones series. Tom Glynn-Carney plays Prince Aegon Targaryen. This dragonrider is the first born son of King Viserys Targaryen and is a dragonrider. He rides the legendary she-dragon Vhagar.
The Game of Thrones prequel will cross-pollinate with Succession. The episodes will feature POV gore and will be directed by Miguel Sapochnik. The two films will be set in the same universe and will feature the characters from the series.
