Composer of the Soundtrack game of Thrones and the derivative The Dragon’s House, Ramin Djawadi justified the choice to use the original series’ opening theme to open the prequel episodes. According to the musician, the repetition would be a way of connecting the events of the two productions, “tying the new material with the old” (via IGN/The Winter is Coming).
“we always look [a abertura original de Game of Thrones] as an overarching theme that connects all the characters, their journeys and the adventures of this universe. So we thought it would be appropriate to connect it to the main theme [de A Casa do Dragão]”, explained Djawadi.
The musician also detailed the differences between the series’ soundtracks in general, stating that “melodically I’m starting completely from scratch but sonically I’m going back to the original score”. According to him, the new themes of The Dragon’s House resemble some sounds that were already used in scenes of House Targaryen in the original series.
Set 200 years before the events of game of Thrones, The Dragon’s House is based on the book Fire & Blood, by George RR Martin. You showrunners from the first season are Ryan Condal (colony) and Miguel Sapochnik (thrones), who recently left production.
The Dragon’s House airs on Sundays on HBO and streaming HBO Max.
