The new Game of Thrones spin-off, House of The Dragon, is on its way to TV screens and fans are hyped the iron throne is finally an accurate representation.
Diehard fans couldn’t get past the fact the throne in Game of Thrones didn’t look anything like the description depicted in the book, so the new trailer for House of The Dragon will make a lot of fans very happy.
HBO dropped the first teaser for the GoT spin-off and while it didn’t give too much away about the storyline, it did hint at what fans can expect.
As well as getting a first look at the cast, including Matt Smith, Paddy Considine and Olivia Cook, fans got a glimpse of the throne, the ‘seat of the Lord of the Seven Kingdoms’, which has been given an upgrade.
“The Iron Throne is looking much more book accurate for #HouseOfTheDragon,” one fan pointed out on Twitter.
“THE THRONE AS DESCRIBED IN THE BOOKS!!!!” Wrote another.
“The accurate throne,” tweeted a third, alongside the new photos.
“FINALLY WE CAN THIS IRON THRONE ON HOUSE OF THE DRAGONS LOOK LIKE THIS BUT MY EXPECTATION IS MORE THAN THIS,” wrote someone else.
“Have you ever seen the Iron Throne? The barbs along the back, the ribbons of twisted steel, the jagged ends of swords and knives all tangled up and melted.”— Minerva (@minervaumbra) October 5, 2021
An excerpt from the book describes the throne as: "Have you ever seen the Iron Throne? The barbs along the back, the ribbons of twisted steel, the jagged ends of swords and knives all tangled up and melted.”
For reference, here's a picture of the original iron throne used in Game of Thrones:
House of the Dragon was announced two years ago, it will be based on George R. R. Martin’s book Fire and Blood, which centres around the history of the Targaryen family.
It’s set two centuries before the novels GoT was based on, Ice and Fire.
House of the Dragon is expected to be released in 2022 on HBO Max’s streaming service.
