The larger-than-life world of House of the Dragon
For those who lack fantasySan Diego Comic-Con is the perfect opportunity to be amazed. Already on the one hand, thanks to the many announcements that have been made on the spot and that we have been relaying to you since this morning, especially around from the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons movie and many other universes (Star Wars, DC Comics, dragonball…).And, on the other hand, thanks to the shovelful of events that take place on site and which involve the most adored licenses of the fans present. For example, the stand devoted to the spin-off House of the Dragon of Game Of Throneschallenges you to prove your worth to leave, at the end, with an amazing surprise!
For the most total immersion, some sets from flagship franchises have been recreated to immerse any fan in this fantastic universe. On site, the media Gizmondo shared with us a whole gallery of snapshots taken during the experience ” House of the Dragon: The Dragon’s Den (The Dragon’s Lair)” where typical Westeros sets have been made to allow fans to be part, in a way and for a few minutes, of the universe of George RR Martin. As evidenced by the pictures below, real care has been taken to reproduce the atmosphere and aesthetics of the novels. A Song of Ice and Fire and the HBO series.
Sit proudly on the Iron Throne… and leave with a dragon!
For once, the Comic-Con teams had planned everything by setting up a four-day experience, powered by the expertise of the Niantic studio (to whom we owe Pokemon Go) in augmented reality, which makes us relive the hatching ceremony of a dragon egg. But all this is for the bravest and most deserving! During the journey of a queue that could seem endless, many sets transport us to Port-Réal, the emblematic capital of the work of George RR Martin. Actors in costume, musicians replaying well-known tunes from the series, typical shops of Port-Réal, … Everything is there to disorient visitors to the convention!
Between two sets, fans are invited to download the “House of the Dragon: DracARys” application before participating in the final ritual ! In an equally neat atmosphere, visitors enter the Dragon’s lair… or at least what’s left of it since it’s a huge skeleton that welcomes you. However, there are still many small living creatures that you can select, in the next step, by choosing your lucky egg and preparing for it to hatch. While waiting for the process to take place in the pool room, the ephemeral inhabitants of Westeros have the privilege, all with the well-known melody of the show, of taking their place on the Iron Throne.. Because yes, now that you have a dragon, you have the power to reign. At the end of the experiment, you even have the nice surprise to discover that your dragon will accompany you everywhere, from your loved one and your smartphone : all he has to do is find a name for it!
