‘House of the Dragon’ S2 Australian premiere

Ahead of the global premiere of the second season of House of the Dragon on June 17, Melbourne personalities and fans attended Binge’s Australian premiere on Wednesday, June 12 at IMAX Melbourne.

Hosted by Luke and Scott O’Halloran, guests were transported to a Westeros-inspired world and required to pledge their loyalty to either the Green or Black Council before being among the first in the world to watch the opening episode.

Based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood,” the series, set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, tells the story of House Targaryen.
