George R.R. Martin has taken a first look at the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon and says fans will definitely not be disappointed.

Commenting on the upcoming show over on his own website, the author revealed that he had seen “a rough cut of the first episode” and that “[he] loved it. It’s dark, it’s powerful, it’s visceral… just the way I like my epic fantasy.” Martin added that while the audience will only have heard of a few of the actors on its cast, “I think you are going to fall in love with a lot of them. (Only to have your heart broken later when… but no, that would be telling.)”

“I think the Targaryens are in very good hands,” he concluded. “Anticipate away. I do not think you will be disappointed.”

House of the Dragons will stream on HBO Max sometime in 2022.

Elsewhere in entertainment, The Matrix Resurrections‘ producer James McTeigue says there are no plans for a new trilogy.
