In the night of August 22 starts in Germany finally 'House of the Dragon', all 'Game of Thrones' fans will get supplies with the series. The focus is on the Targaryens and therefore inevitably on dragons. But if the original only showed three copies, 'House of the Dragon' will increase to nine dragons in season one.

The series celebrated its premiere in London. Director Miguel Sapochnik took the opportunity to talk about the dragons, among other things. Apparently, the responsible series designers have overshot the mark on the subject out of sheer euphoria.

'House of the Dragon': Too many dragons for season 1

Even in 'Game of Thrones', the dragons always provided the greatest visual spectacle. So it's no wonder that the upcoming prequel also relies on the fantasy creatures. Apparently, not only the fans, but also the makers are hyped. The ' Crown newspaper ' quotes Sapochnik as follows:

'They are so much fun to create that we accidentally designed 14 instead of nine.'

The good news for fans: The dragons that don't appear in the first episodes will get their due appearance later. The director adds: 'We'll use the excess in season two!'

'Game of Thrones' fans should be reconciled

Lead actor Matt Smith, who plays Prince Daemon in 'House of the Dragon', also spoke at the premiere in the British capital. He promises that Fans in advance: 'This series will reconcile a lot of people with that. Writer George R.R. Martin is very pleased with it himself.'

His statement is to be understood against the background that the last 'Game of Thrones' season in particular met with a lot of criticism. In social networks and forums, among other things, it was criticized that the plot suddenly seemed rushed and the authors neglected the characters. These weaknesses, in turn, have often been attributed to the fact that George R.R. Martin had been used up and the showrunners were largely left to their own devices. The prequel 'House of the Dragon' is again based on a Martin novel, namely 'Fire & Blood'.

As Sapochnik suggests, the new series will be heavily based on the successful concept of 'Game of Thrones'. 'We haven't tried to reinvent the wheel, but rather rely on what has been successful so far' , he openly admits. Now it remains to be seen whether 'House of the Dragon' can avoid the sometimes very unnecessary mistakes of its predecessor - in a scene from season eight, for example, there was a Starbucks cup that was simply overlooked in the editing room.
