HOTD official poster released and new Funko Pops revealed!

Ohhh, the hype for House of the Dragon is really heating up (if you find my puns insufferable now just wait until August)! HBO has released another poster for the show and we’ve also got our first look at some licensed House of the Dragon merch!

Earlier today, House of the Dragon’s official Twitter account tweeted this magnificent poster with the tag line “Fire Will Reign” (so, you know, I’m in good company with the puns).


Now, I’m assuming this is season 1’s official poster, since individualized character posters were released a few weeks ago. So, I think it’s really interesting that they’ve decided to focus on young (Milly Alcock) Rhaenyra Targaryen.

Certainly the imagery is evocative of Daenerys, but I’m also taking this as an indication that the show (or at least season 1) will center Rhaenyra, much the way season 1 of Game of Thrones centered its poster child, Ned Stark.

I suppose it was inevitable that an adaptation of the Targaryen Civil War would favor one side over the other, but if House of the Dragon really turns out to be The Rhaenyra Show that will be … interesting in the long run.

Or maybe the poster was just intended to give us all Khaleesi feels. We’ll have to wait until August to see.

  1. I have a rather dreary apathy about the show so far, I really hope I can get a little bit excited about it between now and August. I don’t think I’ve ever been as drawn in to a television series like I did Game of Thrones, and I hate that I don’t feel the same about this one. That is one cute dragon funko. 😄🐲

  2. Hmmm I can’t help but wonder what dragon is behind Rhaenyra on this picture. It looks enormous!
