An animated “Game of Thrones” series is in the very early development stage at HBO Max, Variety has confirmed with sources.
There are no details available about what the focus of the potential series would be and no writers or talent are currently attached to the project. However, it has been a high priority at WarnerMedia to expand the “Game of Thrones” franchise since the mothership series ended in 2019.
HBO Max declined to comment.
Variety exclusively reported last week that a series based on George R.R. Martin’s “Tales of Dunk and Egg” is in the works at HBO. The series of fantasy novellas follow the adventures of Ser Duncan the Tall (Dunk) and a young Aegon V Targaryen (Egg) 90 years prior to the events of “A Song of Ice and Fire,” which served as the basis for “Game of Thrones.”
HBO is currently prepping the “Game of Thrones” live-action prequel series “House of the Dragon,” which is slated to debut in 2022. That show will document the buildup to the Targaryen civil war in Westeros that is known as the Dance of Dragons.
