WASHINGTON: Good news! The ‘Game of Thrones’ prequel titled ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight’ has been confirmed.

The prequel was announced during Warner Bros. Discovery presentation to the press on April 12.

According to Variety, a US-based media outlet, the show is based on George R.R. Martin’s ‘Dunk and Egg’ books, which follow the adventures of Ser Duncan the Tall (Dunk) and a young Aegon V Targaryen (Egg) 90 years prior to the events of ‘A Song of Ice and Fire.’

Taking to Instagram, HBO Max shared the motion poster of the prequel which they captioned, “A century before #GameofThrones, there was Ser Duncan the Tall and his squire, Egg. Executive produced by George R. R. Martin, Ira Parker, Ryan Condal, and Vince Gerardis, A Knight of the #SevenKingdoms: The Hedge Knight has received a straight-to-series order. #StreamOnMax.”


The official logline states, “A century before the events of ‘Game of Thrones,’ two unlikely heroes wandered Westeros… a young, naive but courageous knight, Ser Duncan the Tall, and his diminutive squire, Egg. Set in an age when the Targaryen line still holds the Iron Throne and the memory of the last dragon has not yet passed from living memory, great destinies, powerful foes, and dangerous exploits all await these improbable and incomparable friends,” as per Variety.

Soon after the motion poster of the show was out, fans flooded the comment section with red hearts and fire emoticons and shared their excitement.

“Woooh! this book was so, so good šŸ™‚ Excited to see the screen adaptation,” a user wrote. A fan commented, “Will be the best yet.” “Actually looking forward to this,” a fan wrote.

The official release date of the show is still awaited. It will stream on HBO Max. (ANI)
