George R.R. Martin Says "Game of Thrones" Prequel Pilot Won’t Involve Targaryens, TBD on Dragons

George R.R. Martin Says
George R.R. Martin has shared yet another fact about the “Game of Thrones” prequel pilot — which may or may not be titled “The Long Night.”

While discussing his new book, "Fire and Blood" — which catalogs the history of Westeros before the current events of Martin’s "A Song of Ice and Fire" books and David Benioff and D.B. Weiss’ fantasy series — the author teased more about the upcoming project, which is set 10,000 years before “GoT.”

And, well, if you were hoping for a lot of the same elements of “Thrones” in its prequel, you might be disappointed, as this Westeros very different from the one we know now. For one, there won’t be Targaryens and there may not even be dragons, said Martin, who is working with HBO and showrunner Jane Goldman.
