Set 200 years before the events in GOT, the new show confirmed for August 20, will follow the house of Targaryen, the power tussle leading to the war of the Seven Kingdoms.

The thrilling new trailer showcases major highlights of the series but most nostalgic of all is the dragons. What’s a GOT story without dragons?
