HBO is not yet willing to leave to one side the universe of
fantasy Game of Thrones. In just a few hours, it was reported
the cancellation of Bloodmoon and officially confirmed the
realization of another prequel titled House of the Dragon. In the first case, Emilia Clarke,
who played Daenerys Targaryen in the original series, you have an idea of
why the network decided not to continue with the project.
Entertainment Tonight spoke with Emilia Clarke
during the premiere of his new film Last Christmas in
New York. At the time of the interview, the news of the prequel on the
House Targaryen had not come to light, for which you asked the
british actress about his impressions regarding the cancellation of the other
series starring Naomi Watts.
“I’m really not sure [de lo que sucedió]. I think that is a reflection of the difficulty of convincing people to see [nuevas producciones]so it’s difficult to get that done. I wonder if perhaps it will be reincarnated at some point, but if was not destined to happen now, then I am sure it is because [HBO] I knew that [la serie] I was not going to be as perfect as it should have been,” said Clarke.
Bloodmoon, tentative title of the series developed by Jane Goldman, screenwriter of X-Men: First Class (2011) and Kingsman: The secret service (2015), would be developed during the “Age of Heroes”, some two thousand years before the events seen in GoT. The pilot was filmed last June and was in the process of editing, however, HBO has decided not to continue with the project after a long post-production and rumors on various problems during the shoot in Northern Ireland.

The series based on the novel Fire and Blood George R. R. Martin will explore the origins of House Targaryen and will be in charge of Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik. It is expected that the series will premiere in late 2020 or mid-2021.
