“Game of Thrones” is the masterpiece of legendary author George R.R Martin. Originally produced in the form of a fictional story, the novel was one of the bestseller fictional stories back in 1996. Yes! You read it right. The fundamental idea of “Game of Thrones” dates back to the 90s. Soon after the novel’s popularity (a fictional story book), it was sold to the television broadcasters of the time.
As a result, we ended up getting one of the most popular seasons HBO has ever streamed: “Game of Thrones.” The season was watched by hundreds of millions of people across the world soon after it was released on HBO. However, the season went through some controversies at the end. In turn, it gave birth to yet another masterpiece: “House of the Dragon.”
George Martin, the legendary storyteller of our time, was originally obsessed with the idea of “Game of Thrones.” Reports tell us that RR Martin was involved in the “process of the season,” from casting to character development. Of course, plot development was yet another challenge for the think tank behind “Game of Thrones.” However, this ‘involvement’ of RR Martin was lessened in 2015 when he came up with yet another sublime idea.
It turned out later in 2015 that this preceding idea of RR Martin was of “House of the Dragon.” At this point, Martin lost interest in “Game of Thrones.” Why? Because his idea was already sold across the world. Sure enough! The idea paid him heavily. But he reckoned that it was about time to move ahead. So, he came up with yet another fictional story of “House of the Dragon.”
Experts argue that one of the reasons that kicked in the idea of another television series was that Martin saw the market. This means that he felt a lot of money was sitting on the table for the legendary storyteller. So, coming up with “House of the Dragon” was apparent.
Another reason, however, was the disappointment of the audience. The prolonged TV series ends abruptly. And reasonably so, it leaves the audience disappointed. At this point, coming up with some “more inclusive” was the need of the day, analysts assert. Consequently, RR Martin came up with yet another blockbuster called “House of the Dragon.”
However, it is essential to note here that this is where the difference lies between “Game of Thrones” and House of the Dragon.” The latter does not end abruptly, unlike the first one. Rest assured, the character development, central idea, and plot developments are the same.
Thus, the ideas behind both blockbuster TV series are more alike than different. Since it is the hand of RR Martin behind both of them, they are bound to be similar.
