Animated Game of Thrones series in early development
Although there has been discussions around its plot and hiring potential writers, the series has yet to be given a full order.
An animated Game of Thrones spinoff is in the very early stages of development at HBO Max, says the Hollywood Reporter.
Executives have reportedly met with potential writers to discuss some concepts and ideas for the show, which would definitely be aimed at adults with a tone similar to the original show.
The site did stress that no official deals have been made which means there’s still a chance the series may not move forward.
In 2019, HBO announced that they had dropped a Game of Thrones prequel series starring Naomi Watts which was set thousands of years before the events of the main show in the Age of Heroes.
Sources tell the Hollywood Reporter that HBO is incredibly keen to develop new Game of Thrones projects and that it’s currently working closely with original author George R.R Martin to “build out (his) sprawling world.”
It was recently announced an adaptation of Martin’s Dunk and Egg short stories, that follow the titular knight Ser Duncan the Tall and his young squire nicknamed Egg, is also in very early development. This too has not yet been given a full series order.
The only Game of Thrones series that’s officially in production is a prequel titled House of the Dragon which explores the history of the infamous Targaryen family. Paddy Considine, Doctor Who’s Matt Smith, Emma D’Arcy and Oliva Cooke are all set to star.
All eight seasons of Game of Thrones are available to stream on NOW TV.
