In the coveted Hall H of San Diego Comic-Con, HBO will host a panel for its upcoming Game of Thrones spin-off, House of the Dragon. The audience will travel 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones in the series, which is based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood with a concentration on House Targaryen. Together with Ryan Condal, Martin devised the series.
Martin posted on his blog after witnessing the rough cuts of nine out of the ten episodes of the show. “I continue to be impressed. I cannot speak to the SFX, many of which are not in yet, but the look of it is great, and the acting, the directing, and writing are first-rate. And yes, for all you book fans, it is my story. Sure, there are some changes from ‘Fire & Blood’ we could not present three alternative versions of every major event, not and keep our sanity — but I think Ryan Condal and his writers made good choices. Even some improvements.”
The Warner Bros. Discovery presentation will be their first live appearance since their recent merger. The studio is back with a vengeance to celebrate new and fan-favorite live-action and animated television shows, movies, comics, and games from Thursday, July 21, through Sunday, July 24 with a series of can’t-miss panels, behind-the-scenes chats, activations, and more.
Additionally, Warner Bros. Television is back with a panel for the eagerly anticipated new drama The Sandman, which is based on the legendary DC comic book series by Neil Gaiman, as well as the final panel for the successful drama series Riverdale. The acclaimed adult animated comedy Harley Quinn will also have a special advance screening of its first two new episodes on HBO Max, and the world premiere of the original film Green Lantern: Beware My Power will take place at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
