Here’s Why George R.R. Martin Is Anxious About GOT Prequel

George R.R. Martin is anxious but excited about the GOT prequel- House of The Dragon. To prepare for the forthcoming prequel, Game of Thrones author George RR Martin said he was about to pass the reins of his fantasy universe to a new creative team.

One of the most essential characters in the program, King Viserys, and Prince Daemon, will be centuries before the Targaryen Civil War. A new Sky documentary, which includes interviews with the cast and crew and footage of massive fight sequences and lavish sets, gives the impression that the new show will be every bit as grandiose as the original.

The House Of The Dragon Is Not Too Far Away

House of the Dragon, the fantasy mega-first franchise’s TV spin-off, will air later this summer following most were introduced to Westeros by HBO’s Game of Thrones.

The Targaryen civil war, which took place roughly 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones, will be explored in House of the Dragon, which will premiere on August 21, 2022. Miguel Sapochnik, a veteran of Game of Thrones, will serve as the showrunner for the first of several spinoffs.

According to fresh remarks, George R.R. Martin is anxious and thrilled about House of the Dragon, the next book in the Song of Ice and Fire series, which he is now working on.

George R.R. Martin, the OG creator of the Game of Thrones prequel series House of the Dragon, discusses how he feels about having less participation with the prequel series in a new HBO featurette.

According to Martin, who likened the experience to giving over his child to foster parents, he’s both delighted and anxious:

“I’m excited. It’s always a little apprehensive when you turn your baby over to foster parents, but I’m involved in this. It’s great to have Ryan, who’s a great writer, and someone who really knew my world. He’s gonna do his best to remain faithful to it. I knew Miguel Sapochnik was an amazing director. He’d won an Emmy, he’d done some of our best episodes. There’s always a little suspense to: How good is it gonna be? But I think I’m in good hands with Ryan and Miguel (chuckles).”

The House Of The Dragon’s Torch Is Being Passed On

For visionaries like George Lucas, handing up the reins of their creative baby is never an easy matter. At the very least, George R.R. Martin seems to be cheerfully relinquishing some authority.

Martin still oversees the House of the Dragon from a high-level perspective, but he no longer makes the creative decisions daily as he did with Game of Thrones. And the celebrated novelist has every reason to be anxious – loosening those creative restraints a little bit is a significant move.
