HBO announced their upcoming Game of Thrones prequel series House of the Dragon based on the book Fire and Blood by George RR Martin, which is a sort of Wikipedia for the Targaryen history. The news was just announced after HBO canceling another prequel series titled Bloodmoon starring Naomi Watts which featured The Long Night event and was a backstory of sort for the White Walkers.
Can they make a three episode arc in House of the Dragon that pretty much un-kills Daenerys Targaryen and make her queen? Bring Emilia Clarke back too.

But based on the fan response for GOT Season 8, the way White Walkers and the Night King were reduced to a joke, it was not a smart move and hence they decided to shut it off after watching the pilot episode. HBO: House of the Dragon is more relevant and has a reference book written by GRRM itself.
Praying that the casting for House of the Dragon has as much flavor as casting Emilia Clarke for Daenerys had 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼 I don’t want dull white people with blonde hair, blue eyes and no lips please

It raises an important question whether Emilia Clarke aka Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons will be the part of the show or not? Given how the arc of Queen Dany ended with Jon Snow stabbing her, the makers would really like correct their mistakes and give fans another glimpse of their favorite character.

HBO executive Casey Bloys announced the project at the event for HBO max, which is an upcoming streaming service from AT&T. House Targaryen has always been the most popular in Game of Thrones lore given how they rode dragons and had magical powers.

The silver-haired pale white members of the House of the Dragon have a lot of mysteries which fans would like to see. It is also said that based on the Fire and Blood book by George RR Martin, the HBO show House of the Dragon will lead up to the events of the Dance of the Dragons, a Targaryen civil war. HBO: House of Dragons will have 10 episodes and it will be set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
Emilia Clarke in House of the Dragon
Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) was the only Targaryen left during Game of Thrones events and she was the one who brought back the dragons and magic back in the Seven Kingdom. When Emilia Clarke was asked about whether she will be back from the dead or not, she refused to give a straight answer.
There are some theories that say that House of the Dragon could start with Dany learning about the history of her family from her brother Viserys or she some another time of her life. It would give a great boost to the show House of the Dragon if Emilia Clarke is present in the first episode and also it would create a lot of hype among the viewers.
