See How Aegon Conquered Westeros in Game of Thrones' Official Animated Miniseries

Game of Thrones may be focused on the war for the Iron Throne, but there’s another epic battle in the past that’s just as iconic, and it’s finally getting a miniseries of its own.

HBO has unveiled a sneak peek at its storybook-style animated series called Game of Thrones Conquest & Rebellion, which looks at Aegon Targaryen’s conquest of the Seven Kingdoms, likely leading all the way through Robert’s Rebellion. The first episode, which is available online, is called “Valyria’s Last Scion: House Targaryen.” It tells the story of the Doom of Valyria, and ends on Aegon Targaryen’s sideways glance at Westeros. Oh yeah, that boy’s gonna conquer so many lands.

Bonus: The episode is narrated by Game of Thrones actor Harry Lloyd, in-character as Daenerys’ dickish brother Viserys. And he sounds a lot nicer than he did in the show—you know, before being burned to death by liquid gold. The afterlife must have done wonders for his personality.

There is speculation that Aegon Targaryen’s conquering of Westeros could be one of the prequels HBO is planning after Game of Thrones ends, so this could be HBO testing the waters on whether Aegon’s story could carry an entire series. Meanwhile, I’m still hoping we could get a prequel about Valyria, one of Game of Thrones’ coolest mysteries. But considering how many freaking dragons they would need, it seems highly unlikely.

The whole 45-minute miniseries is available as a bonus gift for pre-ordering the Game of Thrones season 7 Blu-ray. You can check out the first episode below.

Game of Thrones casts the role of Harry Strickland for Season 8!

Game of Thrones Season 8 has begun production, as you might already know. A while ago, we posted about the new casting calls for Season 8, and it had quite a few roles. Being the final season, the show will need to tie up a few loose ends, and that will require a few new roles to be cast. One such role now seems to have been cast now, and it is a somewhat important one. Read on!

The role in question is that of Harry Strickland, leader of the mercenary group we know as The Golden Company. German actor Marc Rissmann seems to have been cast for the past, according to his Spotlight CV, and Agency page, says a new report by Game of Thrones fan-site Watchers on the Wall. Rissmann has an impressive resume, too, having played some badass characters. There was a call for a mercenary character in the casting calls, and thanks to the sources linked above, we now have confirmation that the character is actually Harry Strickland.

Read the description of the role, below :

“Mercenary, aged 35-50. Described as “an authoritative, fit, cool and charismatic military type.” Horse riding skills are required, and the character will appear in two of the six episodes.”

We saw in Season 7 that Euron Greyjoy leaves to go team up with the Golden Company, for Cersei Lannister, so it looks like we will see Marc Rissmann share the screen with Pilou Asbæk (Euron), and maybe even Lena Headey (Cersei). It sounds like the character will carry some weight, so we can’t wait to see how it plays out. What about you? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
We would know Rissmann from The Last Kingdom.
