But why would a fantasy drama series inspired by the medieval england produced such an impact on viewers in the 21st century? Critics have said that it is a perfect combination of dragons, sex and blood. However, it is much more than that. GOT is a successful adaptation of the best seller Song of ice and fire (1996), a saga of historical novels created by the 73-year-old American writer and screenwriter George RR Martin.

Based on the great creative minds of fantasy (Tolkien, Vance, Williams), in the master of family disputes, power and the exploration of the human condition (shakespeare) and in a saga of historical novels to which he says he particularly owes his muse (The cursed kings, of maurice druon), Martin created a universe of fiction and history published in 5 volumes.

‘The universe of Westeros‘, named after the fictional continent where the plot of Game of Thrones takes place, places Seven Kingdoms that coexist between periods of suspicious calm and brutal violence for the dominance of power on the iron throne. The plot finely weaves together several stories simultaneously to carefully build a universe: the threat of bestial creatures and some shadows from the past that seem to defy peace unleash a visceral and unscrupulous war between the noblest families and profoundly shape the destiny of its characters. .

After years of offers to project the history of the Targaryen, Stark, Lannister families and others on the screen, Martin accepted the television proposal from producers David Benioff and DB Weiss, at HBO. In its 8 years, GOT has had a cast with figures like Sean Bean, Jason Momoa, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage, Pedro Pascal, among many others. However, as of the sixth season, the series surpassed the books, so that he had to do a supervised adaptation of the story. This earned him a mob of uneasy fans who grew apart as the series progressed.

The reasons for its success are multiple: the stimulation of the senses to portray an ambitious, selfish human nature, capable of violence so raw and overwhelming that it even drove away some viewers; the documentary construction of a fictional universe whose characters seemed to speak more to the audience about contemporary society; the creation of an ecosystem of fans around the world that produced a wave of digital networks of comments, opinions and joint views every week; an unpredictable plot developed by unexpected plot twists for the entire audience. That combination between the adrenaline of the unexpected and the energy of its scenes made it an addictive series for many.

After a two-year hiatus, the new prequel, House of the Dragontells the story of the three centuries of reign of the Targaryen family, 200 years before the usurpation of the throne to Aerys II, the father of Daenerys, one of the main characters in the Game of Thrones saga. He will also explain the events of the civil war in Westeros known as the ‘Dance of the Dragons’. She is inspired by the book fire and blood by the same author, with the executive production of this, together with Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik.

BOCAS presents the main characters of this spin-off, which will be broadcast from August 21, 2022 on the HBO Max platform and will have ten episodes.
