HBO Max has finally dropped the teaser trailer for "House of the Dragon," the highly anticipated prequel of the popular series "Game of Thrones," drawing mixed reactions from fans.

The streaming giant took to Twitter Tuesday to share the clip, which runs for just over a minute. In the caption, it wrote, "Gods. Kings. Fire. Blood. @HouseOfDragon is coming to HBO Max in 2022. #HouseoftheDragon."

The video opens with Prince Daemon Targaryen, played by actor Matt Smith, walking in the darkness while holding a fire torch. It is followed by a scene that shows Prince Daemon standing near the seaside. A text appears on the screen, saying, "200 years before the fall of the throne, a dynasty reigned."

Close-ups of a couple of new characters are then shown and finally, Prince Daemon is seen with Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, portrayed by actress Eve Best.

"The Sea Snake," a character played by British actor Danny Sapani, can be seen entering the palace with his companions. What comes next is a few shots depicting brutal fights, followed by a scene in which a woman walks toward the throne.

Throughout the trailer, there's a voice-over that says, "Gods, kings, fire, and blood. Dreams didn't make us kings — dragons did."

"House of the Dragon," which reportedly has 10 episodes, revolves around the Targaryen civil war. The series explores the events that took place 200 years before the timeline of "Game of Thrones."

Shortly after the teaser was released, netizens took to the comments section to share their reactions to the clip.

One of the fans wrote, "The throne still looks sh-t !! And it looks low budget not many big actors in this one either, not sure if I even want to watch it now."

Another fan noted, "It's like seeing your old toxic ex who ruined your relationship and part of your life coming back like if nothing happened without an apology and being like "heyyyyy, let's get together again."

Though many expressed disappointment with the teaser, some fans said they are looking forward to the new show.

A fan even shared a clip containing some scenes from "Game of Thrones," writing, "I'm waiting."

Another fan commented, "I am incredibly conflicted about this. The teaser is great, the premise is great; it's not the fault of this show. The last 1-2 seasons of GOT were so disappointing that I don't feel any love or excitement for this franchise anymore. But I do hope this show can reignite that."

"House of the Dragon" will premiere on HBO Max on Jan. 1, 2022.
