Game of Thrones Prequel Charts Rise and Fall of House Targaryen
Ashley Allen / 5 months ago
Flashbacks are a rarity in HBO’s fantasy drama Game of Thrones. As such, the history of Westeros exists only in the passing words of the show’s characters. However, a new animated series is set to delve into the event preceding the show. Specifically, the animation will show the rise of Aegon “The Mad King” Targaryen, his subsequent rule over the Seven Kingdoms, and his usurpation following Robert’s Rebellion.
The Prequel: Game of Thrones Conquest & Rebellion
The animated miniseries, Game of Thrones Conquest & Rebellion, is a disc-exclusive with pre-orders of the show’s seventh season DVD or Blu-Ray. However, the first chapter of the 45-minute prequel is available on YouTube now:
Chapter One – Valyria’s Last Scion: House Targaryen
“Told in the animated, storybook style of the History & Lore features, Game of Thrones Conquest & Rebellion brings you the never-before-seen story of the turbulent events that shaped Westeros for thousands of years before the series start.
The 45-minute bonus disc is a limited time DVD & Blu-ray™ exclusive gift when fans purchase Game of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season. Pre-Order now.
Game of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season is available on DVD & Blu-Ray™ on December 12, 2017.”
The Future of Game of Thrones
Reportedly, we’ll be waiting until 2019 for Game of Thrones‘ eighth and final season. Beyond that, HBO is in pre-production on an as-yet-revealed spin-off show.
