House of the Dragon: Season 1 [Blu-Ray]  [Region Free]
About this deal
Meanwhile, the "Greens" consist of the group at King Landing, including King Aegon II, Alicent, Otto Hightower, Ser Criston Cole, Aemond, and Vhagar—the largest dragon in the world. We've chosen a story that's almost like Star Wars: Episode IV," Sapochnik previously told EWabout House of the Dragon's overarching story. Debuting at the 2023 Comic-Con Experience Panel in São Paolo, Brazil, the Season Two teaser revealed that there's no going back for Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D'Arcy) and Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke).
While we would have loved to have Miguel continue in the same role, we are thrilled to have his ongoing collaboration in this new creative capacity," HBO said in a statement. And while that’s incredibly cool, one of the most exciting bits came right at the end, when podcast host Jason Concepcion revealed that the House of the Dragon season 1 physical release would have the deleted scenes from the show’s first season. Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse.
It is going to take four full seasons of 10 episodes each to do justice to the Dance of the Dragons, from start to finish.
It was probably the right choice really,” Considine said of the deletion, adding that the emotional impact remains in the final edit. In the latter half of Season One, the series controversially united Rhaenyra and her uncle, Daemon, in marriage—though many fans don't seem to mind. When King Viserys I Targaryen (Paddy Considine) assumes the Iron Throne, he divides his kingdoms by naming his daughter, Princess Rhaenyra (Emma D'Arcy/Milly Alcock), as his heir, sparking a deadly war of succession.Set 200 years before 'Game of Thrones', the show follows House Targaryen as they rule over the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros before a devastating civil war brings an end to its dynasty. I am excited to discover what happens when Rhaenyra does less navigating and more acting on her instincts and desires.
The couple will face off in a Targaryen civil war against the newly crowned Aegon II, Rhaenyra's half-brother. We did expect House of the Dragon to take around four months, but it turns out that is not going to be the case.In some cases, they’re probably right (we certainly didn’t need any more shots of Aemma’s blood-soaked bed), but it would’ve been nice to see others (literally any crumb of Rhaenyra and Alicent before the latter’s wedding! Once a healthy boy entered the picture, plans were afoot to make sure she would never sit on the Iron Throne. With its first season running on an accelerated timeline — 20-plus years in ten episodes — some meaningful House of the Dragon moments were bound to get left by the wayside. So, it’s like X-Factor, but less drawn out, or like the Conservative Party Leadership contest, but with less idiots. While not exactly competing with its predecessor just yet, House of the Dragon starts as a worthy prequel series to Game of Thrones, one of the greatest shows in television history, and my own personal favorite.
