The animation is expected to be part of the larger-scale strategy to expand the fantasy world created by George R. R. Martin. Though animated, the series is reportedly following in the same mature tone as the original hit TV franchise.
Fans can add this to the growing list of GOT spinoffs that HBO has been eagerly pursuing since the end of the original series. In the meantime, GOT enthusiasts can look forward to the 2022 prequel series, focusing on the Targaryen household, House of Dragon and Tales of Dunk and Egg which explores the adventures of Aegon Targaryen and Ser Duncan the Tall. Other GOT ideas are currently being tossed around, but none have yet to come to fruition.
While HBO has previously developed a number of GOT prequels that never went forward, HBO Max supposedly provides the franchise with a greater platform to build out Martin’s sprawling universe.
Currently, no further production details are available regarding the latest Game of Thrones animated series.
In other HBO Max news, its newest trailer reveals new footage of almost all Warner Bros. upcoming 2021 films.
