Three of the most legendary sagas return to screen next year. We show you the details.

Three of the most interesting and popular sagas in history will continue next year. Some connect us with the past to explain facts that we already know, others give us extra information about interesting characters, these 2022 promises, and we show you a preview of it.

House of the Dragon: Game of Thrones Prequel

You have to start with the head, the same to place a nail or to kill a snake, and we start there.

Of the best news for this coming year we tell you that Game of Thrones will have a prequel based on the story of the House of Targaryen, chronologically located hundreds of years before the end of the story that we already enjoy.

To put ourselves on the exact chronology, we know that we will look at the facts around Viserys' rise upon assuming the Targaryen throne. It is difficult to give more details without falling into a spoiler, but the first trailer of this series is already available and from there we will understand a good part of what will come.

The House of the Dragon will have 10 chapters in its first season and is part of several spin-offs that are designed to complement the story, although the production company reserves the information about the rest of these possible prequels.

The books offer a lot of material for creating Game of Thrones prequels

As is known, the Game of Thrones universe was born from the book saga "The Song of Ice and Fire", by the writer George RR Martin and, as in the case of Star Wars or The Lord of the Rings, there are races, languages, complex stories that take place thousands of years apart and that will allow adding many new prequels to existing productions.

But since there are no 2 without 3, from the official account linked to HBO it has also been announced that in 2022 we will have a Game of Thrones convention, squeezing the most of the excitement of the fans of the series who will surely want to attend this event.

As always, at the convention there will be autograph signings, cosplay, and various interesting events that will surely have more content with this continuation of the story.

Dumbledor's Secrets: Harry Potter Prequel

In this case, it is a film that arrives surrounded by controversy due to the circumstances that took Jhonny Deep away from his role in history. In social networks, fans do not stop demanding the return of Deep to his character, although it is already late, and we will soon be enjoying the film.

"But we never saw Jhonny Deep in Harry Potter", those who do not know the universe of this story will say, and it is true, in this case the link comes from fantastic animals, a story that occurs in the same universe as the Potter story, but in this installment it ends up even more united.

We all remember the friendly (but powerful) Scamander, in this story he receives a direct order from none other than Dumbledore, to face dark forces that threaten to bring chaos to the entire world.

JK Rowling continued the Harry Potter story with Fantastic Beasts

This information is essential to understand how stories are connected. Warner Bros made an agreement with the writer and this is how Fantastic Animals was born, whose films, although not linked continuously, are prequels to the story of the wizard boy who ended up defeating Voldemort.

The point of the controversy is that nothing is known about the story yet, the title assumes that it will deal with secrets about the powerful wizard Albus Dumbledore, but these secrets could be about his power and how he obtained it, let's remember the mention that he would have sacrificed his own sister for it, even his personal relationships.

There is no trailer yet so the mystery is another impulse to be on the lookout for the continuity of the Harry Potter universe.

Obi Wan Kenobi: Star Wars Prequel

If there is a complex and interesting character to make a prequel about him, it is Obi Wan Kenobi. The best thing in this case is that the prequel is a series that brings us Disney + in 2022, fans already know that they will have several seasons of this incredible and powerful character.

There is already a very short trailer (a teaser, to be exact) that hints at a new confrontation between Obi Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.

In general there is little detailed information. We know that everything will happen years after the Sith war, that Jar-Jar Binks will not appear in this series (at least not in the first season) and little by little we are imagining this prequel, but 2022 will be the moment when let's be happy with its premiere.

2022: A year of the return of great stories

In all cases, we talk about stories that for years have not given us new material or content, even with gigantic fandom we have waited for years and now, 2022 is presented as a great year for fans of different series and sagas.

With the rise of streaming platforms, we already guess that many will spend weekends at ease as a couple or with friends, enjoying the return of their favorite stories. The desire to give us a New Year's hug is already intense... But we have to wait.
