the epic world of Game of Thrones It will continue to expand on the small screen with a newly announced project.
It is a prequel series that will be focused on Aegon I Targaryen and the conquest of Westeros. According to Variety reports, HBO is “actively discussing” the project:
“The show would tell the story of how Aegon and his sister-wives, Visenya and Rhaenys, used their army and their three dragons to conquer six of the seven kingdoms in Westeros with the exception of Dorne.. In doing so, Aegon I became the first King of Westeros, the first to sit on the Iron Throne, and the founder of the Targaryen Dynasty.. Those events took place approximately 300 years before the events of “Game of Thrones.”
The prequel is in the early stages of development, so as an external source, there is no writer involved in it at the moment, although HBO is looking for it, since it would be a high-priority project.
“Sources also say there may be a prominent component to the project, meaning HBO and Warner Bros. would produce a feature film that would then lead to the potential series, though plans are still changing at present.”
If plans come to fruition, it would become the latest television project based on the world created by George RR Martin, following the success of Game of Thronesand the prequel House of the Dragon, whose first season became a hit with audiences and critics upon its premiere in August 2022. The latter also revolves around the Targaryen dynasty, mainly on the events of the civil war known as “the dragon dance.” Season 2 is currently filming.
This is one of the most valuable IPs for HBO/Warner Bros. Discovery.
