Game of Thrones in animation? We start (maybe) with three productions

Talking about new possible animated productions is the father of the crude and dangerous kingdom of Ice and Fire George R. R. Martin. Below is the first information.
2024 is the year of the Dragon and what better time to put together new productions in the world of Game of Thrones? Its author Martin has in fact declared that there are three animated production projects based on his books currently under consideration by the US broadcaster HBO.

"As it happens, HBO and I have our own animated projects, set in the world of 'A Song of Ice and Fire'," Martin added. "None of them have been greenlit yet, but I think we are getting close to taking the next step with a couple of them. When this last round of development started a few years back, we had four ideas for animated shows, with some great talents attached. Writers rooms and summits, outline and scripts followed in due course... but, alas, two of the original projects were subsequently shelved."

Two projects are therefore in development but the House of the Dragon prequel, entitled Nine Voyages, has also moved from live action to animation. It will be a series focused on the adventures of Sea Snake Corlys Velaryon, as he embarks on his legendary adventure across Essos.

Martin added, "Budgetary constraints would likely have made a live-action version prohibitively expensive, what with half the show taking place at sea, and the necessity of creating a different port every week, from Driftmark to Lys to the Basilisk Isles to Volantis to Qarth to... well, on and on and on. There's a whole world out there. And we have a lot better chance of showing it all with animation. So we now have three animated projects underway."

There are no release dates yet for these projects but the author hopes that they will be created with the same quality of the Netflix series Blue Eye Samurai, of which Martin is a big fan.
