1st episode of ‘House of the Dragon’ released for free after ‘Rings of Power’ premiere
According to the comic book, the HBO Max released the first episode of ‘The House of the Dragon’ in response to the release of ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power‘, which premiered yesterday (01) on Amazon Prime.
The attraction based on the novels of JRR Tolkien was long awaited by most fans of the medieval fantasy genre, as well as the derivative of ‘game of Thrones‘.
Recently, the showrunners of ‘The Dragon’s House‘, Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik told The Hollywood Reporter they are not worried about possible comparisons.
“My hope is that both series will work and find a huge fan base,” he said. Condal. “We are not worried about comparisons! I think the more big, expensive costumes that work on television, the better for us fans, because more will be made of them. I desperately want ‘The Rings of Power’ to be successful. I’ll be there watching it the first night it’s available, I’ll watch every episode.”
“’The Lord of the Rings’ is great intellectual property and has great material. I have no idea what they did, but I think it’s fantastic. The phrase that best sums up series premieres is: the more the merrier, really.”
Remembering that the next chapter of ‘The Dragon’s House‘ will be displayed in september 4th.
The story is set 200 years before the events of ‘game of Thrones‘ and follows Daenerys’ ancestors as House Targaryen collapses. The plot is based on the novel ‘Fire & Blood’in George RR Martinwho also enters as a creator alongside Ryan J. Condal.
